SCOTLAND’S biggest makeup college has opened in Dunfermline, securing 14 jobs in the town and representing over £250,000 of investment in the Kingdom.

Edinburgh based firm GlamCandy invested in the premises in the Fife town’s High Street after operating at nearby Bruce Street college for several years.

The new 1600 square foot college can accommodate up to 72 aspiring makeup artists at a time on its SQA approved courses in Fashion Makeup and Makeup Artistry.

GlamCandy is on an ambitious UK wide investment programme after partnering with Julian Kynaston – the man behind cult makeup brand Illamasqua.

After selling the brand for £23 million last year, he has been the driving force behind a major investment in the Edinburgh firm.

He said that the Dunfermline opening was the next step in “making GlamCandy the ‘go-to’ makeup college brand in the UK”.
