I dream of starting my career in beauty journalism, and this program helped me realize that.
ON CHOOSING BEAUTY INDUSTRY ESSENTIALS —
I have always loved anything that had to do with beauty. It gives you a sense of empowerment that no one can take away. I initially enrolled to help me become a successful beauty editor and brand ambassador. But I knew the partnership with Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) looked great on my resume. And, Allure is awesome! One of the top magazines I grew up reading. I also love their reader-friendly layout, which caters to all demographics. I dream of starting my career in beauty journalism, and this program helped me realize that.
ON BEING A YELLOWBRICK STUDENT —
My favorite instructor from Beauty Industry Essentials was Bobbi Brown. I grew up wearing her makeup. My biggest takeaway from Bobbi Brown is “less is more.”
ON REAL-LIFE APPLICATION —
The program gave me valuable knowledge of each division of the beauty industry. So whether I want to have a brand or become a writer, I’m well aware of what goes behind the creation of that gorgeous color palette or why they chose a specific model to represent a brand. I also learned that it’s possible to become an elite influencer in the beauty industry — just like some of the faculty members that taught the course.
ON THE PAST & WHAT’S NEXT —
This online course gave me great insight into what division of the beauty industry is my favorite and what I’d want to pursue. I’m deciding between journalism and brand marketing.
