My make-up classes – Dedicated to my father

The inspiration for starting this blog came from my spur-of-the-moment decision last April to enrol in a makeup academy which is within walking distance from my place of work. As I have mentioned before, I've always been fascinated by make up and colours and spent a lot of money in products so I thought that taking… Continue reading My make-up classes – Dedicated to my father

Eyebrows, etc

On this cold afternoon in Greater Manchester, whilst sipping my coffee, I am wondering what the 3rd lesson of my makeup class will cover this evening.
