Course Description

Flawless makeup for real women

I believe make up should fit into every lifestyle, and you shouldn't need years of training and a bottomless wallet to look and feel amazing. This course will empower you to take control of the vast sea of makeup options out there, and look your best every day.

After taking this course you will:

  • Understand how to create a flawless base
  • Take your makeup quickly from day to evening to night
  • Fit different makeup options into a limited time frame
  • Learn which bargain products beat the designer ones
  • Pick up my tips and tricks for time saving and avoiding makeup mistakes
  • Understand the difference between types of brushes and application techniques
  • Tailor complex techniques (like contouring and false lashes) to a realistic lifestyle

I'm not a professional makeup artist - I am a normal woman just like you, and I need a makeup routine that will fit in with my busy lifestyle. I am passionate about makeup, getting bargains, and have spent years trawling Youtube and blogs for the best recommendations. I'm so excited to teach you all my tips and tricks for looking flawless!

Take this course today, and get control of your makeup drawer!
