Beauty Therapy Skills 

A beauty therapist requires training in these critical areas: 

  • Waxing
  • Tanning
  • Brows and Lashes
  • Facials and skincare
  • Massage

Makeup artists, on the other hand, should focus on critical skills like:

  • Understanding colour, face shape, and tone
  • Having artistic flair and being creative

  • Hair and Lashes

If you’re ready to take your skills, passion, and talent to the next level, it’s time to consider beauty school.
