Beauty courses & Makeup Courses

beauty courses irelandThe scale of the beauty industry is just astonishing - globally it is worth a €235bn per year. In the United States, beauty and cosmetics is the third most profitable industry (behind Pharmaceuticals and Software) and what is particularly interesting, is the beauty industries seeming ability to negate the impacts of economic meltdowns and even wars. An industry, essentially built on extracts from plants, herbs and flowers combined with cultural and religious beliefs and sold by celebrities, has seen over 100 years of consecutive growth.
