Kylie's beauty business encouraging students to perform

BEAUTY school drop outs will be no more at CQUniversity after professional make-up artist Kylie Sefton schooled students on the importance of vocational training.

Kylie, who overcame struggles to follow her passion, shared her experiences in hope students would learn the basic elements of what it means to be a good make-up artist.

The Yeppoon woman, who is passionate about her business PRO Makeup by Kylie, had jumped at the opportunity to give a presentation to the students.

"I wanted the students to know that make-up just isn't painting the face or a vanity thing, it's kind of like you become a councillor for your client," she said.

"I told the students it comes down to technique and passion and to really chase what you're passionate about."

Kylie said she wouldn't have been able to own her own business without a higher education in her field.

"I started out working in a pharmacy, watching the ladies who worked at the make-up counter," she said.

"Now I have my own business with pop up stalls in shopping centres and mini make-up courses".

Kylie said make-up was an emotional transformation for a lot of people and was a powerful thing.

"I hope the students use the methods I shared with them and adapt them so they develop their own unique techniques."
