I started the MMAP course in November. I'm really enjoying it. My only problem is the time of year, and finding people who have time in their busy holiday schedule to be a model for me. I've been practicing different looks on my "mature" skin, and am liking some of the effects. Looking forward to trying on others!
Have fun with it. I've been watching various tutorials on YouTube as well - lots of excellent techniques and looks for all seasons.
Happy New Year.
