Makeup student with cerebral palsy defies odds

GlamCandy student Hannah Pierce is breaking boundaries after successfully completing the ‘Introduction to Makeup Artistry’ course.

At just 18 years old and living with cerebral palsy, Hannah attended the professional creative college based in Scotland to pursue her passion for makeup. She now looks set to become one of a tiny number of professionals in the beauty industry.

Having spent all of her life in a wheelchair, Hannah is on a mission to rid the stereotypes within the industry and prove that regardless of a disability, you can follow your dreams.

Hannah comments: “I’ve been interested in makeup for about eight years. I started teaching myself through online YouTube tutorials. During my time at GlamCandy, I met some incredible people, including my tutors Vicky Cameron and Holly Martin. I also loved how the college gave you so much knowledge of makeup, but it didn’t feel intimidating; it was always such a relaxing, friendly environment.”

The course helps students master the skillset required of a professional artist by studying specialist styles including colour theory, bridal basics, and product knowledge.

She continues: “Glamcandy is one of the best and most unique experiences. Be ready to learn so much about makeup without even realising it. The staff and fellow students are always on hand to support and guide you on your journey to kick-starting a fantastic career.”

GlamCandy students are able to learn from some of the finest technical makeup artists in the UK, as well as benefit from partnerships with leading brands, including Illamasqua, Mac, Kryolan, Doll Beauty and B Perfect.

Hayley Harvey-Smith, director at GlamCandy, said: “It’s been fantastic to welcome Hannah onto our course and showcase her incredible talent from skills that she originally taught herself. GlamCandy is an inclusive college, and we are open to students from all backgrounds, so it’s a pleasure to have worked with Hannah.

“Many students use our pro courses to develop their skills and enhance their makeup knowledge, which then allows them to fast-track into the industry.”

The creative college is busy enrolling for the next cohort of HNC students and various short courses. Those interested in kick-starting their beauty or photography career can do so by visiting the GlamCandy website: https://glamcandy.co.uk/
