This week the mobile network Three visited The Illamasqua School of Make-Up Art, inviting with them six beauty bloggers for our Eye Brow Effects Course (click here for more info on our courses). Each blogger was given a Samsung Galaxy Alpha to use throughout the 2 hour session where they took photos, (on a 12 MP camera, which to those who are not so tech savvy means high quality definition!) posted Tweets and Instagrammed their fun using #SamsungMobileMakeover to share their experiences!

Who was there?

Here, to kick off the class the bevvy of bloggers are being taught how to shape a natural brow by our Senior Educator Nilofar. They watch with eager eyes and have their Samsung Galaxy Alphas at the ready to snapshot important moments:

Nilofar gave each blogger a turn at modelling for each Brow Effect she taught. Here Hafsai sits patiently whilst everyone learns the art of the natural brow. The class then go on to practice and learn the look on themselves.

One of the fun features of our Brow Effects course is working with our highly pigmented colours and how to ombré your brows with them.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha catches the colours beautifully:

Going from blue to purple really makes blue/green eyes POP!
