I have hosted a few makeup workshops in the past few years. Workshops hosting as many as 150 ladies. I hosted for FNB last year, a Women’s Day initiative for their staff. MediaNova, Sandton magazine was another. I also did a workshop for some consultants from Discovery Health, the ladies wanted to know how to do their makeup for work and for after hours. Some of my favourite workshops have been for Morrells, where I have hosted with other service providers from the wedding industry. The workshop is for future brides where we help you plan your perfect wedding day. Just this past Sunday I hosted at Morrells.
On the 23rd June this year I finally hosted my very own workshop at Crabtree & Evelyn, Design Quarter. There were eight of us, including Linzelle our photographer who photographed the workshop. It was a cloudy day for June and was perfect to spend it in the warm Tea Room at Crabtree. As we all arrived we ordered a hot cup of tea and nibbled on cucumber sandwiches and we then began.
I originally wanted to chat about new fashion and makeup ideas. The more I prepared the more I realised that I wanted the workshop to focus on colour. The difference between cool and warm colours and why it is essential to always keep this in mind when dressing and applying makeup. When you start applying these simple rules, suddenly you become sharper when buying clothes, jewellery, makeup and even when dying your hair
Scrumptious scones were served with clotted cream, strawberry jam and cheddar cheese, heavenly! While the ladies were munching and chatting I was able to do quick one-on-ones with each person. We all have different concerns and I now had the time with each person and show how to correct or adjust their techniques.
A huge thanks to Crabree for hosting us, Hip Hop for lending us clothing and for the generous vouches. Metropolitain Cosmetics for the goodie bags and Linzelle for the beautiful photographs she had taken. Linzelle was a fly on the wall and worked wonders with the light she was given as it was tricky!
