'Let me teach you the tricks of the trade' 

Make up is all about accentuating and transforming your best feature's, making you feel a more wonderful version of yourself. I love how make up can be such a confidence booster and have the power to make you feel great. There is no doubt that it feels fabulous to get your make up done professionally and the most often quote said by my clients is 'I wish I could do this myself'- well you certainly can. Let me pass a few little tips and tricks, that will be unique for you and can give your make up that extra something, most importantly it'll be fun too!

These lessons will give you that extra knowledge and confidence with your makeup. They will be simple and easy techniques that have high impact. You will look forward to every make up opportunity! 

All lessons can also be made into a group package! Perhaps you have a group getting ready for a party or big event or you just fancy getting the girls round with a bottle of bubbly to have a day or evening of pampering and indulging.  

Make up Lessons: 

*All make up lessons include detailed face charts of the make up placement and a step by step guide on how to re create it. This will be emailed to you or posted after the lesson. 

''Beautiful Bride''- 2.5 hours Hours £150

This is an ideal option for the 'Bride to be' that would like to do her make up herself on the day but feel's they may need that little extra confidence in knowing exactly what products to use and how to use them to get the best look that will last all day and look great on camera! Using my own kit and bits from your own make up bag, we will create the perfect look and I will teach you step by step how to achieve the look in an easy, do-able style. 

You will receive a face chart explaining what we have done, what products we used and where to use them with the correct make up brush so that you can refer back to practice and re-create on the day! 

It's a great option if you are getting married abroad or simply enjoy the process of doing your make up but would like a helping hand in the lead up. You will also learn exactly what products to add to your make up bag and these you can carry on using knowing they are perfect for you!!

''Organising a wedding in 11 weeks meant I struggled to find a makeup artist that wasn't already booked. Had a trial with somebody and quite frankly it was awful, I looked like a clown. I met Christine at a venue event evening and showed her a picture. unfortunately she was fully booked but offered a makeup lesson as she said she couldn't allow me to go to my wedding not feeling confident. It was brilliant, I learnt what I was doing wrong and how I could improve and what products to buy. I think I did a great job on the day and I have been using the techniques I've learnt to other parties. Couldn't recommend highly enough''- Rebecca Goff 22nd July 2017

Why not book the lesson for when you have a plan to go out after. 

Teenage Beauty Lesson £70 p/p- £60 p/p for groups of 3 or more

In this lesson I will teach you everything you need to know going into the world of beauty and make up. We will go through skincare that is correct for you and your skin type, the right make up for your skin tones and I will teach you a few make up looks that you can use for different occasions. With this you will learn all the basic's, the 'do's and dont's' and the perfect make up and tools for your make up bag.

My nearly-teen daughter is already experimenting with make-up and I was really keen for her to learn the basics of good skincare and to be confident when using beauty products, but finding my way through the myriad of make-up trends was proving to be a nightmare. Thankfully, Christine's 'First Make-Up Lesson' was the perfect solution!

My daughter was guided through a step-by-step process, as Christine applied make-up that beautifully matched Molly's skin tone. Christine carefully and clearly explained each part and Molly felt happy and confident enough to make up half of her face herself. The results were beautiful and my daughter was absolutely delighted.

We left with a complete list of all the products used, that Molly will be able to assuredly use at home. Christine's patience and enthusiasm made it a magical experience, one which my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend. -
