After a break for lunch, the graduates were back for the second half of our day of beauty experts and this time we were joined by the director of beauty for Cosmopolitan magazine, a huge job title with a fair amount of power in our industry! Cosmopolitan is one of the most recognisable brands in the UK & the world, seeing its magazines have an outreach to 1 in 4 millennials making it the number 1 magazine in the United Kingdom! So, as you can imagine wit that said, this was one powerful woman! She gave the AOFM graduates an indepth look at her history, how she got to where she is and how she works with her team of beauty editors and a massive amount of industry professionals, includding many, many makeup artists. Once she had given our grads the full run down it was time for a big Q&A session which provided them with even further inspiration for what heir futures might have in store for them!
The day was finished with a classically AOFM style champagne and canape evening, giving the grads the chance to catch up and reflect on the new level of industry knowledge that they had just gained. One day they could be work for or alongside women just like the ones we met today. Very inspirational indeed!
It is AOFM’s absolute pleasure to provide ongoing unlimited aftercare in all different forms to our graduates!
