Make-Up Lesson Outline

We start with a skin assessment, facial cleanse, tone and prime, to refresh and prep the skin, and make tailored recommendations for keeping skin its glowing best in the long haul.

We advise the best base for your skin type and tone – looking at which texture, shade and undertone will suit you best. We also colour match you to the perfect fit in our own range, with bespoke blending as needed.

We develop a bespoke day time look together that enhances your natural features. We take it step by step through base, brows, cheeks, lips and eyes, consulting as we go to find the perfect colour choices and textures for you.

We develop a bespoke evening look together, building on the base of the day look so you can see how you can easily go from one to the other. We focus on eye makeup (will you choose a smoky eye or feline flick?) natural contouring and highlighting, and lip colour (statement and neutral). We can also teach you how to apply false lashes.

By the end of the lesson you will be wearing a full makeup look, so it’s the perfect treat before an outing with friends or family.

Our Unique Method

At each step our makeup artist will illustrate the technique on one side of your face, and you complete the step on the other side of your face with their support and guidance, and in your own time.

We tailor the support to your skill level so, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned makeup maven, you’ll learn something new and useful. We’ll record everything in a personalised makeup summary for you to take away and refer to at home.

We’ll also draw on our unique perspective as makeup creators to recommend the best formulas of skincare and makeup for your skin’s specific needs that will feel comfortable, care for your skin and look effortlessly natural.
