Beauty star inspires students

Celebrity make-up artist, Armand Beasley, visited Hair and Beauty students at Barnsley College to talk about his extensive career in make-up and skincare.

Armand Beasley is a celebrity make-up artist and image expert who has worked in the cosmetics industry since 1994. His work ranges from the Oscars to being a regular face on TV makeover shows, with clients including Gok Wan and Michelle Keegan.

He came to the college as an inspirational speaker to talk to current Hair and Beauty students about his career path and gave tips on being successful within the competitive industry.  The students also took the opportunity to ask Armand some beauty-related questions, where he carried out live demonstrations.

Carly Acton, a Level 3 Make-Up Artistry student, said: “I really enjoyed Armand’s question and answer session, it has given me a good insight into careers with beauty industry. I loved having a makeover from a professional make-up artist.”

Emma Hanks, Hair and Beauty Course Leader at Barnsley College, added: “To have Armand come to college and share his experience with our students is a real honour. Students did not only feel motivated, energised and inspired, but left the talk feeling more confident in realising that anything is possible.”
