A successful makeup artist at Urban Decay shared her top tips for making it with North Lindsey College students

The branch manager of a sought-after makeup brand has paid a visit to her former college to demonstrate professional techniques to its current crop of beauty students.

Imogen Culbert (pictured right), once a beauty therapy student at North Lindsey College, now manages the local branch of cosmetics company Urban Decay in Scunthorpe, and spoke to students about employer expectations as well as demonstrating makeup application techniques.

“Make-up is my passion; I love being creative and making a difference to people,” she said.

“I always wanted to work in sales and with makeup when I was at college. There is scope for progression with Urban Decay; I love the products and they are more of an artistry brand as well as being cruelty-free.”

Twenty-year-old Morgan Faulkner (pictured left), who is enrolled on the level three beauty therapy course, had her makeup applied by Culbert as part of the demonstration.

“I believe it’s really important to see demonstrations from people who are out in industry,” she said. “I remember last year someone came in from Benefit too and spoke to us about professionalism in industry and what employers are looking for.”
