Jennifer - Beginner Makeup Workshop


Jessica did a 1-1 make up workshop with me. I was a bit nervous as I haven’t done a lot of make up before but she made me feel at ease. She showed me some great techniques and gave helpful product recommendations - I feel much more confident in what products to buy and how to use them. Thanks Jessica!

Donna - 1 on 1 Masterclass


Great workshop with easy to follow techniques. The girls were very helpful, I learned so much!
