 One on One Lessons 

In a one on one personalised makeup or makeup & hair lesson with me we will talk / practice all the things you have the desire to improve on including;

Products, Hygiene, Skin Types, Colours, Product Placement, Hair Types and more!

On the day you will need to bring all your makeup and/or hair products so we can have a look through your personal makeup kit, talk about what should stay and what should go and get an idea of what should be added to the shopping list!

In the lesson we will start by having a chat about what it is specifically you want to learn and together we will create a plan of attack specifically tailored to you.

Using a mixture of your own existing kit and my professional kit we will create your very own killer makeup and/or hair look. I will apply makeup to half of your face and you will recreate it on the other half with my guidance. I will eagerly answer all your questions - like for real... I can talk a lot when it comes to something that I am so passionate about but don't worry, I speak your language and I strive to tailor my teachings to meet all of your requirements. We can go as slow or as fast as you need :)

I have a depth of knowledge built up over many years and as things arise on the day we can address them and you will end up learning things you may not have known were even a question.

You will leave with a new found confidence in your abilities, a shopping list with quality products to up the application game, advice on what can be done for continual improvement and a sense of achievement

 Lessons for the Makeup Artists 

This is a specifically tailored lesson to any makeup and/or hair artists out there who have learnt their own ways into the industry via self teaching and tutorials online or have done a course but still feel absolutely lost on how to start an actual career in the industry and feel like you are drowning in everything you have yet to learn with no one to help you.

 

Does this all sound familiar? Cause yeah, same! 

This industry is a very self led industry, it is big and daunting and you are expected to know it all, but how do you know it all when there are literally endless things to learn?! 

Through this service I am hoping to inspire other artists out there to not give up, I want to help create a supported community and offer my knowledge to others who are trying to figure it out on their own.

This is not a qualified course in any way, and I don't provide you with any product additions to your kits but I have a depth of knowledge on actual real world stuff like;

->  Motivation for leading a self run business 

->  Building your kit in the most money efficient way

->  Product knowledge

->  Invoicing

->  Knowing what to charge

->  How to stand up for yourself and not get used by others in the industry (it happens waaaay to often...)

->  What questions to ask clients during your service

->  How to perform with the highest possible hygiene standards (pesky covid world tings)

->  How to show confidence with your client to elevate your performance

->  How to approach clients when applying product so they feel at ease (minimise the flinchers)

->  Basic hair styling for those interested

... so basically all the little things that often get lost in big makeup courses or don't get noticed when trying to learn on your own.

No I am not in any way the genius who knows it all in the industry, I don't think anyone really is, but after 6 or so years of full time learning via courses, via assisting more experienced MUA's and via doing / not doing (because jobs don't just fall in your laps and it takes years of building yourself in the industry before you start properly seeing things rolling in...) I have picked up many tips and tricks that I think all makeup artists should know and less should have to waste time trying to figure out on their own.

 

So in this lesson I want to leave it open to you, what are you struggling with? What do you really wish you could know without having to do it all alone? Is it business? invoicing? cleaning? growing your kit? confidence? skills?etc. you name it and I am here for you! Maybe you even have something to teach me, with all the differing techniques out there everyone has something new to bring to the table! 

Just having a point of connection in the industry is sooooo valuable. We need to stick together and promote being a kick ass community of MUA's!!
