THE POWER OF CORRECT MAKEUP IS UNDENIABLE
As a national award-winner I feel a responsibility to raise the standard within the makeup world and what more positive way to do that than teach – spreading beauty far and wide!
COMPREHENSIVE LESSONS IN THE ART OF MAKEUP APPLICATION
We provide tailored makeup lessons for individuals or groups for self-application.
“I really enjoyed the session… more than I think I would! You pitched it just right for my very insecure beginner level and I did come out with some confidence. I loved the suggestion of using eye-shadow in the form of a stick, rather than powders that end up everywhere… and I never would have thought of using navy blue as eyeliner shade, but it does really work! Even my partner commented this morning “not sure what you have done, but whatever it is, it works” (and he never notices anything!)” – Amaia
We also specialise in makeup lessons for the over-40s…
Learn how to stay looking youthful – masking the signs of age – with a healthy and radiant glow every day.
The power of makeup can give us a helping hand in looking fabulous with the right colours, products and techniques.
Some of the most common mistakes actually have the opposite effect, so learn how to:
- Choose makeup looks and colours that both suit you and boost your youthful appearance;
- Lift your eyes with clever eye-liner techniques;
- Blend eye-shadow beautifully for your eye-shape;
- Use the best concealer for you and how to apply it;
- Define your eye-brows for an anti-ageing effect – brows play such an important role in our appearance; and
- Choose the most suitable lipstick colours and textures and how to achieve a naturally fuller lip appearance.
You’ll pick up some great tips that will be invaluable for years to come!
WHY SHOULD I BOOK A MAKEUP LESSON?
Have you ever wanted to really understand which makeup styles suit you, which colours light up your face and make you look radiant and healthy?
Have you ever been confused about the vast array of products available to choose from and not knowing where to begin?
Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut with the same makeup routine for years not knowing how to make yourself look younger, effortlessly stylish – as if you woke up looking like this?
Do you use the same makeup style for daytime and evening and don’t know how to turn your daytime look into a more glamorous and sophisticated evening look?
If the the answer to any or all of these is yes, then a makeup lesson is what you need.
Makeup lessons are entirely bespoke and taught on either a one-to-one basis or in groups of two to three people. (Makeup parties for larger groups are also available – the perfect opportunity to update your skills with friends/sister/mum).
The lessons take two hours and the content is completely customised to suit your goals and experience. We also look through your existing makeup kit (please have it with you, no matter how big or small!) to assess which products are suitable and which you might need to get.
As part of the lessons we work out the most flattering colour selections for you according to the theory of “colours by season” and Kristina’s own bespoke colour assessment method. We then go through step-by-step the most flattering makeup styles for you – firstly by watching and then repeating under guidance.
Learn how to look stunning every day and both polished and sophisticated on special nights out. With the basic necessary skills that you’ll pick up during the lesson and a bit of practice you’ll be able to achieve this.
At the end of the lesson you’ll look amazing and wish you’d done this years ago!
WHERE DO THE LESSONS TAKE PLACE?
We work from a beautiful studio in central Richmond, Surrey which has been designed to strict specifications in terms of lighting, furniture, and space to be perfect for makeup lessons. We also provide makeup and hairstyling services from here when not travelling.
Should you, however, prefer to have a lesson from a location of your choosing this can also be arranged.
WHO ARE THE MAKEUP LESSONS SUITABLE FOR?
The makeup lessons are suitable for the following clients:
- Individuals who just want to learn how to apply better makeup on themselves; or
- Brides-to-be who will not have access to the makeup artist of their choice and want to master the application of bridal makeup for themselves.
Private lessons for individuals
Whether you would like to learn a natural and everyday look, a style suitable for the corporate world or a glamorous and sizzling evening look we would be more than happy to guide you through the makeup maze.
We will show you how to make the most of your facial features and how to enhance them with the help of correct application skills, colour matching and of course the right products.
If you are planning on getting married somewhere where the makeup artist of your choice will not be readily available, we can teach you how to apply your own bridal makeup so that you will look simply stunning on the day.
We use products and application techniques that ensure flawless long-lasting makeup from the morning through to the night with just an occasional lipstick touch-up required.
All of our lessons include 2-3 professional portrait photographs of yourself taken at the end of the lesson to have a visual reminder of what you have learned.
