I first got into makeup kind of by accident. I, ah, was going to attend a friend's wedding and she asked me to do the makeup. And I mentioned to her, I'm not a makeup artist. And she said, Oh, you do your own makeup so nice. And some people saw it and said, Hope, who did your makeup? And that was eight years ago. My name is Christine Cho, and I'm a professional, full time, freelance Makeup Artist. I have a company called Cho Beauty, and I graduated from George Brown College at the School of Makeup and Aesthetics in 2008. I always felt that it's beneficial to have, you know, that kind of professional certification, and it gives you credibility in. I settled on George Brown for a few different reasons, one of which is because the schedule was very flexible. So I had a choice of doing evening classes, or weekend classes, or daytime classes, which was very helpful when, ah, you're working full time, or, let's say, you have a family, other obligations.... The other thing was I liked that the instructors were all working in the fields. So they were either working Makeup Artists or Hairstylists on set, or ran their own businesses as well, which was very helpful when getting advice,  um, during and after, ah, graduating school. And, um, also the location is very convenient in downtown Toronto. I didn't expect to learn so much, as somebody who was already working as a Makeup Artist, um, that I did. And I found that it was really great to get back to the fundamentals, and to have both the lecture and the practical aspect, which was very important to me to actually be able to do the makeup on each other and on models. The School of Makeup and Aesthetics offer you placements or opportunities for students to gain experience, whether it's to do a photo shoot to build your portfolio, or help out a TV show or a talk show. An opportunity I got at the school that has benefitted me, even to this day, is the opportunity to take part in L'OrŽal Fashion Week in Toronto. I never would have expected that while I was a student at the School of Makeup and Aesthetics, that I would get to, you know, rub shoulders with Jeanne Beker, Coco Rocha, and you know, all the great Canadian designers. We do a photo shoot as part of the curriculum, which is really important, to go through the professional process, and have a professional model. And that helped me build my book. And I made a lot of good contacts through opportunities that were offered through the school, whether it was keeping in touch with photographers, or designers, or models, and other clients, and I found that my client base really grew quickly after graduation. I feel very fortunate to do what I do and to be able to get paid to do what I do because I feel like that's a bonus, and, to this day I continue to apply the lessons that I learned at the school, and I'm very thankful that I made the decision to do so. It was just a really positive experience. I would definitely recommend it to other Makeup Artists out there.
