My Experience: The NADIA ZAID Professional Makeup Course

I have attended the Nadia Zaid professional makeup course last week- not that I’m clueless about makeup, but because I felt the urge to become more and more professional.

Nadia Zaid’s course was absolutely amazing: it was fun, it was active, the students (whom I call friends and future MUA’s) where creative and kind… the course I must say was very very beneficial… I didn’t want it to end to be honest (Feeling depressed today) 😦

Nadia Zaid is a well known makeup artist in Bahrain- and what I love about her- is her kindness and how she is very down to earth. She will answer anything you want, she will motivate you, she will inspire you, she will tell you how to deal with clients, she will tell you her mistakes to avoid them, she will guide you further into your career. It’s very very very hard to find such makeup artist with such a personality like hers. She will make time for her students, even after the course.

Below are random photos of the makeup and tools provided which we have used

I would say that this course is more focused on people who want to go pro with their makeup and start applying for photo shoots  brides, clients. It is also good for people who want to learn professionally to apply on themselves. You learn the great techniques after Nadia showing you everything on a model/student and then you have to do the same. So there was a lot of practice- which makes it great so you will learn and get better by time!

The last day was a sad day for me because it was the last- but the content was great- We visited the talented Ahmed Zayer studio (he’s a photographer) and Nadia works with him a lot.

They had a beautiful model waiting for us in the studio “SHEEZA”.. and Nadia applied full bridal makeup for her infront of us (It was fantastic to witness and see how it is done)! She then wore a wedding dress & a veil and Ahmed took photos of her modeling.

Ahmed wanted to show us how makeup is shown in the camera & the makeup mistakes to avoid when it comes to photography! It was super informative!

When taking photographs you have  to apply stronger makeup so that it will show!

She has inspired me to do more. I now have more confidence in what I do! Nadia is very professional and I really wish that those who want to go pro to join the course- it is 7 days (21 hours) total!
