‘Time for Two’ is one of the Illamasqua School of Make-Up Art’s most self-indulgent courses. A personal experience tailored to your needs, inner-desires, and abilities, the course is set in a relaxed yet stimulating environment with a talented Illamasqua Educator. The perfect 2-hour bonding session for a Mother and Daughter or Son, two best-friends, or any combination you can think of, this course is a bespoke offering at the School.
I took a back seat during our PR and Press Assistant Melanie’s course with her Mother (Carol) to see what Illamasqua’s SOMUA had in store.
Illamasqua’s Professional Educator Clare began the session by explaining “If there is anything you struggle with in particular, then let me know and we can tailor this session to your needs and focus on any problem areas you have… that’s the beauty of this course!”
Products were chosen to best suit Melanie and Carol’s skin types and tones, as Clare shared insights to priceless industry secrets. Carol was eager to learn how to make her eyes look wider and as Clare offered a step-by-step guide on skin sketching and how to achieve this. Carol stated “Already it has made my eyes look more open and brighter, you’ve knocked about 20 years off me so far … a wonder bra for your eyes!” To create this look the products used were Medium Pencil in Vow, Interrogate, and Hex, completing with False Eye Lashes in No.19.
They then focused on the eyebrows; an area Melanie had always felt unsure how to tackle. Powder Eye Shadow in Heroine was used to define the eyebrows, Melanie exclaimed “This course has given me a lot of confidence to do things I felt nervous about before, this is the first time I have had eyebrows in 20 years!” A fabulous atmosphere and an ideal start to an evening out for drinks or dinner.
