Summer Masterclasses

This summer our Principal, celebrity Make-up Artist, Elaine Myers-Jones will be teaching workshops for the every day woman.

She will be revealing the secrets of how the stars achieve their beautiful flawless looks. This is a the first time Elaine has shared her knowledge with the general public, normally teaching those wanting to become Make-up Artists themselves.

Please bring your own personal skin care products, to remove your make-up and moisturise/ prepare your skin for make-up practice.

A note book, pen and camera (phone cameras are fine) will be also needed.
