Student Testimonials

  • As a busy mom, it's been nice to go at my own pace with the training and to fit it in when it works with our schedules. I like the personal touch with Trena Laine's training platform as it feels I'm getting one on one training. This program is assisting as a great reminder for myself of how things work directly with clients in person and has brought me up to speed on current situations, including new products out there to help with some skin conditions. I mostly work with clients through video chat so it's nice to know I have those options to offer them if those skin conditions ever come up. I am feeling confident in the knowledge and skills I am training with in this program!

    T. Rhondel
  • I found this program to be a really nice refresher and add onto my certification. I have been working as a professional MUA for almost three years now but still found the little reminders I got from the course like re adding cold sore bandaids to my kit or reinstalling the skills that I had but may have forgotten due to not seeing it often like peeling sunburns or that I can apply makeup adequately and gently on a bride who didn't give a heads up about her raw, fresh and sore acne breakout.

    M. Lefebvre
  • I understand the makeup applications so much more now. The online courses are very straight forward and easy to train with. Thank you!

    F. Oram
  • The program is very easy to follow, with the value far exceeding the posted cost. Her and her team’s approach in encompassing all facets of learning, including but not limited to, the artistic approach, basic to advanced understanding of all aspects of colour theory, to starting and maintaining a business is absolutely ground breaking in approach. This is where other programs lack, that this course picks up. The mix of artistic, and real-life application of your new skills.

    C. Smith
  • I felt that Trena Laine brings fun and humour. Taking this course was not at all what i expected, it was better!  I like the fact that Trena could teach all from past experience and is not reading to us directly from a book. Very hands on.

    S. Flores
  • I loved it all, I loved that I learned so many new techniques. I’m so thankful (now) that Trena covers in depth how to work with skin conditions. I had no idea these things existed.  I also really liked the business and marketing portion as well, I learned more a lot through that. Gave me confidence!

    S. Rushforth
  • I am proud to say I own and operate my own makeup business. I was able to leave nearly 9 years of working for Shoppers Drug Mart, in the Beauty Boutique to pursue my passion in an official compacity. I support my family on my own terms. My successes now include, full publication, international recognition, as well as national and international travel. All due to the excellent teachings, and course outline of Trena Olfert.
