This week I attended the Bridal and Beyond course at Illamasqua School of Make Up at their flagship store on Beak St, London. It was FANTASTIC. I learnt about recognising eye shapes, looking after your bride, wedding kit prep, creating a themed look, colour correcting, oh there was just so much! The first day we had a morning of theory, and then in the afternoon we watched our trainer Ben Edlin create a neutral round cut crease smokey eye on one of the girls, Rachael, and then we paired up and re-created the look on each other (stupidly I didn't take a picture of my work!)
Day two was all about asian bridal makeup, firstly Ben did a demo of a bright asian inspired look on me!
We then got to design our own look from a few different themes, in our Illamasqua face chart books-
I decided to do a purple and gold Asian bridal look on Shobana-
I had such an amazing time, I felt so creative and inspired, it was a great atmosphere to be in with everyone ready to learn, and everyone at the Beak St store was so friendly and knowledgeable. LOVED it. Now I just need to get a job there ;)
So I came away with my lil certificate and a bag full of goodies (and a couple of things from the MAC Pro store round the corner ;) ) and a fire in my belly to get things moving :)
