- Becca Gilmartin
Get excited because Becca will be bringing her unique Makeup Artist courses back. 'The Makeup Mindset' Live Series is a must, and it has all the promise of the original Makeup Artist Bootcamp series. Becca can’t wait to share the new, additional concepts of the course. Becca says “Instead of creating an advanced course, I am creating new content and including it with original content for a complete career discipline”.
Lady Gaga recently said - "There's a discipline for passion, and it's not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down, or you're beaten up. It's about how many times you stand up, and are brave, and you keep going." The Makeup Mindset is a discipline, a mindset, and with artistic and practical activities to assist you in flourishing in your Makeup Career. It's unlike any Makeup course you have ever attended.
Becca says “In May, I will be previewing a new format for the course as an express, one day course. In addition we will be conducting an evening Masterclass, 'Keeping Creative Beautiful' in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne”.
Becca's masterclass is one of a kind and is unlike any other Masterclass I have attended. I personally recommend this Masterclass, as Becca talks about mindset and goal setting. I learnt from Becca that you can be the most incredibly talented artist but if your mindset isn’t correct that talent could be wasted. Becca has always inspired me personally and has helped me take my career to the next level. I can’t recommend Becca’s courses strongly enough. So, don't miss out on such an extraordinary chance and attend one of the best masterclasses for makeup and mindset in Australia!
