Make-up Lessons

Join Andrea in the Make-up and Beauty Bar for a one-on-one make-up training session, which is completely customisable to your needs, skill level and budget.

The make-up lessons are hands on. This means that while Andrea explains and demonstrates a make-up technique to you, you will be required to try it on yourself also. This allows you to become familiar with the products, tools and techniques involved, which is more beneficial to you, in learning how to apply make-up to yourself like a professional. All lessons include a full individual colour analysis.

Sometimes these lessons can be an information overload, as Andrea tries to pass on as much information to you as possible in the given timeframe. Therefore you will also receive a handbook on the day that includes the topics covered during the lesson, so you have something to refer back to you in the future.

The average personal make-up skills training session, in general can take up to three (3) hours. With all three hour sessions booked, you are welcome to come back once the products you have ordered are available for collection, for another session with Andrea. These follow up sessions are FREE of charge, and allow you to ask any questions you may have, and for Andrea to go through your new products with you.

Andrea asks that you bring along all your existing make-up and brushes to the lesson, so that she can help you to fill in the gaps in your current make-up collection.

Specialised Airbrush Make-up Training

Andrea is also available for airbrush make-up training for those either with an existing airbrush make-up kit, or those wanting to purchase one.
