75 minutes. £150

Starting with a skin assessment, facial cleanse, tone and prime, to ensure your skin is looking its glowing best, your dedicated makeup artist develops a bespoke look together with you that enhances your natural features. We take it step by step through base, brows, cheeks, lips and eyes, consulting with you as we go to find the colour choices and textures that suit you best.

We focus on a day look and the few simple steps to take it up a notch for the evening. There’s time to practise each of the techniques you learn with professional beauty tools and expert guidance and we record everything in a makeup chart to take away, so you can recreate your look at home with ease. Leave wearing your lovely new look, having mastered new skills you will use again and again.

Choose The Refresh if your usual routine doesn't seem to be working any more, or if you’ve just never got around to learning how to apply makeup. We’ll tailor the lesson to your experience level and taste so you learn what is most relevant and helpful.

What People Say

"I have enjoyed learning so much about make up and what really does work for me from Cosmetics a la Carte...It is make up with a really fun and intelligent sparkle about it! They have helped me to weather my professional life, my wedding and life as a mother too - truly!" - Mrs V M

Before I came across Cosmetics à la Carte the purchasing of make-up was a costly and wasteful exercise. So many bottles of base tint, as well as lipsticks, blushers and pots of eye colour were thrown away because they were the wrong colour. Fortunately, that is a thing of the past... Life is so much easier, for nowadays I need only one set of make-up that I know suits me perfectly. The range of colours across all products is extensive and the quality is consistently high. Of special note are the custom-mixed tints and foundations that ensure the perfect tone is achieved for my complexion. More importantly, I have received instruction on the application of make-up, as well as advice on how to add ‘drama’ for evenings... I have no need to look elsewhere, as Cosmetics à la Carte offers a total package.” - Mrs A W
