Make Up Therapy

During Covid-19 I had the pleasure of holding makeup lessons for the participants at Sunnyhaven.

Ensuring we were being COVID safe at all times, we held these lesson’s via SKYPE. Each participant had a dedicated one on one 30mins sessions with myself to learn all about makeup.

These beautiful ladies where provided with their very own personal makeup bag lled with products and brushes for them to learn how to apply makeup on themselves.

Each week we would focus on something new to keep these lessons fresh and entertaining. I would introduce new techniques and showcase new eye shadow colour combinations for the ladies to express their creativity.

The clients absolutely blew me away! Some ladies were already VERY makeup savvy, they knew how to use a makeup brush (some even eyeliner). Others were completely new to the makeup world and they improved their skills each week.

Not only did I love seeing the participants makeup application evolve, I also loved the chatter we shared in between the makeup steps. Some ladies came with jokes,
others would share their favourite breakfast and Netix series with me.

Being able to bond with these clients and to provide a creative escape during a dicult time is something I will always cherish and I look forward to them in the future.
