Dean tailored the class to each individual person, picking colours to match our unique complexions and special techniques that enhance our own special features. We brought along our own makeup collections and tools so we could learn how to work better with what we've already got. Sheepishly we emptied our makeup cases to reveal years of bad makeup habits, including my foundation brush which unbeknown to me would be more effective in beating someone than actually applying foundation!
We then bared face for our colleagues, scrubbing off the veil we wear everyday and hydrating our skin. Dean started these classes so he could share his passion and knowledge with everyday women like us, he's not trying to sell us anything so we actually listen when he recommends we purchase a primer. Now our canvas is primed we can begin work on the masterpiece! Starting off with a more natural daytime look, Dean shared product tips and specialised application techniques to ensure flawless skin. We then worked our look into something more bold for night when Dean taught us foolproof steps for the perfect smoky eye.
We all left with radiant skin and a new head turning look, each person different from the rest, with a shopping list in mind and a new outlook on our habitual morning makeup routine. I vow to buy a primer, hydrate my skin, colour match my foundation, clean my brushes, use a splash of colour and thou shalt never sleep in my makeup again – no matter how big a night I've had!
