IMA Co-Founder and Chief Examiner Beryl Barnard was a Guest of Honour at Blossom Kochhar College of Creative Arts and Design in India for an exclusive event. She was also attending as an examiner for the first IMA certified graduates of BKCCAD.
With over 40 years of experience in the industry, Beryl Barnard is one of the matriarchs of make-up in the United Kingdom. She visited BKCCAD late November, where over 200 students graduated successfully. She also presented the diplomas and awards to succeeding students with Dr. Blossom Kochhar, president of BKCCAD, at the graduation ceremony.
Celebrating the association of her academy with the International Make-Up Association, Dr. Blossom Kochhar, chairperson of Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies, hosted an exclusive preview of make-up trends 2020, last month. Welcoming the collaboration, Kochhar said, “We are known to have many other international associations be it for beauty or hair, and now we have tied up for make-up with IMA. This will make the children at BKCCAD ready for the international market in make-up.”
Having been in the industry for long, Beryl Bernard, the Co-founder and Senior Examiner of the International Makeup Association, is focused on just one thing – quality. “I turn on the television, and I see the most horrendous things, make-up artists with brushes in their hair, fingers in the creams and even blowing on the brushes, ignorant of the fact that we have bacteria in our mouth. I hate to imagine what’s in their make-up. So, if what makes a good make-up artist you say, it’s an eye for detail and an eye for colour.”
We congratulate the first graduates of the college and thank Blossom Kochhar College of Creative Arts and Design for their commitment to assuring quality and standards in the make-up industry.
