Makeup Workshops for every woman

Is it time to learn how to apply your makeup?

Now is your chance to learn straight from a professional makeup artist.

What to expect. My intention when I run a workshop is to break down the art of makeup into simple and effective techniques so you can feel confident applying as much or as little as you wish. Whatever your level, or age, you can enjoy makeup without having it zap your confidence. Plus I intend to arm you with the knowledge to buy makeup that works. I’ve always been an open book and am enthusiastic about giving honest advice. I’ve never held back on telling the truth and cutting through the marketing hype.  No buzz words here. No repeating ineffective click-bait tips that just don’t work for the everyday woman; and no selling one specific brand. Just honest practical advice straight from a currently working professional makeup artist (that’s me!) on how to apply your makeup.

My workshops are hands-on and full of personalised advice that you can’t get online. Step-up your makeup game. Put down the cotton tips and wet wipes and pick-up the makeup-up brushes. Say goodbye to smudged eye liner, patchy foundation and panda eyes. Time to learn how to bring out your features without getting in a mess!

All our workshops build on each other so you can choose to do one or many.
