Makeover here we come! Amanda is back with not just 1 but 2 amazing workshops to bring you from DRAB to FAB!

You have the choice of attending either or both of these workshops – the first is Makeup 101 then moving onto Contouring for the second session.

WORKSHOP 1 – Makeup 101 from 2-4pm

Applying make-up is a multi faceted skill that let’s be honest, we kind of just pick up along the way. From your first lip gloss your Aunt gifted to you, to your now (slightly more expensive) favourite shade of MAC red lipstick, it’s an ever expanding and rather exciting makeup collection. But do you really know how to use them???

There is no single right way to apply make-up. It all comes down to the individual’s colouring, shape and features that determine how we can best recommend and implement products.

In this workshop, Amanda Wyllie (Former owner of Insignia Hair and Day Spa / Professional Make-up Artist) will be teaching you the best ways, colours and products to use for your personal features and benefit.

First things first... to achieve a flawless finish on your makeup, you have to take the proper steps in preparation! Amanda will begin by explaining how to look after your skin and prepare your face to be able to apply your makeup with a flawless look and allowing your makeup to last longer.

You will then be shown how to apply your makeup giving you a ‘natural day’ look for everyday life, and then moving into colours and slightly heavier makeup that you would wear say to the races.

Bring along your own make-up (even those you have no idea how to use!) and Amanda will give you guidance on what to use and how best to apply it to emphasis and express your own special features. As well as a PORTABLE MIRROR on a stand to see what you’re doing!

Here is a list of the basics that you will need for this workshop:

  • Foundation that matches your skin tone
  • A small eye shadow palette with natural tones and preferably 4 different shades from light to darker
  • Eyeliner- preferably pencil eyeliner for beginners
  • Blush
  • Mascara
  • Lip liner
  • Lipstick
  • Makeup brushes
This workshop will then progress through to how to apply a slightly heavier everyday makeup, concentrating more on the eyes as well as how to go from day makeup to a sexy night time look easily and how to choose a series of eyeshadow colours that will enhance your eye colour and bring out the fun loving side of you.
You will also get the chance to experiment with liquid eyeliners and master the flick under the guidance of Amanda.

BUT IT DOESN’T END HERE – FOLLOWING THIS WORKSHOP AMANDA WILL BE RUNNING A CONTOURING WORKSHOP – COMBO TICKETS AVAILABLE.

WORKSHOP 2 – Contouring from 4-6pm

What is contouring and why do we do it?

It’s simple… contouring is giving shape to an area of the face and enhancing the facial structure through makeup. It’s mainly used to give an illusion of a thinner face and more pronounced bone structure as well.

Learn to highlight areas you want to emphasise and shape areas you want to hide.

Contouring is not meant to be noticeable, just a subtle definition and Amanda will show you how it’s done well.
