“The best makeup looks great, but doesn’t allude to how it was achieved.”
That’s why I called my business Creative Illusions Make-up Design. Skilfully applied makeup is all about creating illusions, and that’s what I’ll teach you to do, customised for your specific features and colourings.
My aim for you with makeup is to…
…”Have fun, look great and feel confident!”
All lessons are taught in my beautiful and serene, Art Nouveau inspired makeup studio. Come and relax in my luxuriously comfy leather stools, while you learn in peace and sip a cup of tea! The studio is complete with professional Viva-Lite® full spectrum daylight lighting to make colour analysis and makeup application easy and accurate. Lessons can be taught individually or in groups of 2 (subject to lesson type).
What sets my makeup lessons apart from others is what you get to take home!! Depending on the lesson you choose, you go home with various face shape, eye shape, eye design and colour charts, PLUS the Creative Illusions Makeup Masterclass e-Book, ensuring that you can re-create your new look at home! The take-home manual is filled with an abundance of professional tips and it eases the burden of trying to remember everything on the day.
My lessons are hands on and are completely tailored to what YOU want to learn! All makeup is supplied. The best products from various brands are used.
Why choose a personal lesson over learning from magazines or the internet? Because they do not analyse your skin, eye and hair colouring and do not examine your face shape and eye shape or how they work together! I can teach you eye makeup not just for your eye shape, but for how your eyes are set (e.g. close set, deep set) and how that relates to your individual face shape. I can teach you which colours suit you best and other handy tips like which colours make you look younger and which colours make your eyes ‘pop’.
Before You Come
I will contact you so I can gain some basic information about you and ask for some images to be emailed to me. This will help me tailor the lesson to your exact needs, features and colourings.
