"Your life is about to change” , This is the sentence I religiously use to all the students who are starting this journey. My life changed since I entered the glamourous world of beauty, and I would love to show this world to those who are looking for it. Your life will never be boring the minute you graduate from MAX FACTOR MAKE-UP ACADEMY.

A day in the life of a Max Factor Online Academy student

I just finished looking at my roster and was thrilled that I get to have 3 days off from flying. As a cabin crew—we have to live with the irregular hours. It’s part of the job. I get up to make myself some coffee, and a slice of banana bread. I am still in PJs but I smile like I am going out on a fun night with my friends. I open my Mac and I login on my account at www.maxfactoracademy.com

How can we use the best of our eye shadow palette

I’m sure we all have this issue: we invest in an eye shadow palette with verity of shadows and we only use few of our favorite shades while all the other shades are sitting there untouched.

MakeUp Tools

They are the fundamental tools of any make up artist, which include a brush set and a makeup blender.
