After Phase 2 you are given the opportunity to strengthen your skills before Phase 3 which involves working with real models. During this time you are given 30 days to work and practice the techniques you have learned this far. Practicing from home will show your dedication and passion for permanent makeup and set you up for success in Phase 3.

Phase 3 brings all of your hard work together. Over this three day training you will move away from operating on fake skin and begin working with real models and enhancing their beauty.
