The efficiency of the products was quite a revelation for professionals and their customers. It brought about a revolution in the professional makeup industry. The improved results meant improved business for salons. At the same time, the innovative products warranted improved knowledge levels among the professionals. To help them, we started conducting training sessions for them. That is how the idea of a training school germinated and MSTC was born. Apart from courses and classes, we keep conducting seminars, workshops and shows all across country to train the new and practicing professionals. MORPH is a part of the same process. Such occasions allow us to discover the undiscovered. MSTC provides hands-on training in all areas of professional makeup. Our training programmes have been immaculately designed to prepare the novices to become fully trained experts in the field, the maverick! Moreover, the internationally recognized certification helps them to get global recognition. The training programmes will help students to enhance their portfolios and highlight their ability to recognize and meet the industry’s ever-changing demands.”
Echoing similar sentiments, Mr. Rienk Koopman, founder MSTC, added in his welcome address, “When we launched Make-Up studio in India, we were not sure how it would be taken by the professional market here. It was an untested and virgin territory for us. But the way the market welcomed our products was overwhelming. We were pleasantly surprised. It was as if India was just waiting for us. It took to the brand like a fish takes to water. But we soon realized that to keep up with our constant innovations, the professionals would require constant training and knowledge upgradations. We started doing so informally, which later got formalized with Make-Up Studio Training Center. It’s hard to believe that it is already 9 years old. It has created experts in the field. What makes me proud is that it has created a community of makeup artists united by MSTC as their alma mater, a trendsetting community that keeps in touch and discusses the craft and the latest techniques of makeup.”
