The Only Way is Essex star Amy Childs met Bracknell and Wokingham College beauty students.
The 24-year-old spoke to level one, two and three learners about her experiences on the ITV2 show and the beauty industry.
Ms Childs, who runs her own beauty products business and a clothing boutique in Brentwood, Essex, also gave them advice on applying beauty treatments.
Level two beauty student Millie Wright, aged 16, said: “It was a great experience. She’s so down to earth and gave us some good advice.”
Ms Childs said: “I wanted to get across to them that the beauty industry may seem all glamorous, but its hard work and you need to work hard to succeed in it.”
The TV star, who came fourth in Celebrity Big Brother in 2011, is reportedly worth £2.4m.
