What Makes Sandra’s Training Exclusive? Sandra offers an exclusive training program, not available in any make-up school. Her program is intense, one-on-one, hands-on training. Most make-up schools cannot offer this luxury because there are too many students and, in most cases, the budget only allows for one instructor teaching many students at one time. Many schools use videos for training and students work on each other. This causes frustration, anxiety and a lack of attention to detail.
