DO YOU ACCEPT BENEFITS FROM BEAUTY COMPANIES?
No! I’m not in cahoots with any beauty brands. I am a totally independent voice and am not paid by any companies or individuals to recommend any particular product. I base all of my recommendations on the products I’ve tried and tested in my decade-plus role as beauty editor and as a trained makeup artist.
Less is more! Your makeup routine should be both efficient and effective and it should enhance the way you look in a natural way. I’ll show you how to make the most of what you were born with. I’m not one to encourage empty-headed consumerism – you don’t need every great product out there, you just need to know what will work best for you. Budget, time constraints, life stage and lifestyle are all taken into consideration when suggesting suitable products during a beauty masterclass.
WHERE DO WE MEET FOR A MASTERCLASS?
Anywhere on the Northern Beaches or North Shore. I come to you, so you don’t need to do anything (other than be home of course!). If you live beyond. Classes outside of these areas will incur a small travel fee ($25 per hour).
I’ll arrive at your home address with my pro kit, and oodles of enthusiasm for talking all things beauty.
Have your makeup bag at-hand so that I can take a peek at what you already have (and give you useful tips on how to best use what’s there) before suggesting any additional products.
Beauty Masterclasses are 90 minutes for private classes ($200) or 2 hours if you bring a friend ($150 per person). If you want to learn additional techniques (like winged eyes and applying falsies), we’ll need to book in extra time, at an additional cost.
If you want to talk skincare too (and I highly recommend it, because healthy skin will make your makeup routine much easier), add on an extra 30 minutes (total cost $220).
Let me know when you book in if you’d like to add on optional extra time.
Decide who will be hosting, then I will meet you and your chosen guests at the host’s residence. The host/guests are responsible for providing refreshments or snacks, as desired.
I’ll bring my pro kit, and boundless enthusiasm for all things beauty. After an intro on basic makeup techniques, each guest will have up to 20 minutes time one-on-one with me to discuss their individual face shape, skin tone, skin type and product requirements. The host is responsible for suggesting a suitable space for this at their residence.
Everyone should bring their everyday makeup bag so that I can take a peek at you already have (and show you how to get the most out of them) before suggesting any additional products.
Group masterclasses are 2 hours (min. 4 people) and cost $100 per person.
This includes a closet cleanse and full beauty masterclass in one 3 hour session.
If you have a larger-than-average closet, we will need to lock in extra time to get through it at an extra cost.
It’s a good idea to have your bed cleared – that gives us space to lay out your clothes. Don’t even think about cleaning up your wardrobe beforehand (I’ll be pulling it all out anyway!).
Have your makeup bag at-hand so I can take a peek at what you already have before I suggest any additional products.
Standard sessions are 3 hours ($295), but time can be added on if you want to talk skincare or hair too ($45 for every 30 minutes).
CAN YOU TAILOR A MASTERCLASS PACKAGE SPECIFICALLY TO MY NEEDS?
Absolutely! If the standard packages don’t suit what you have in mind, contact me and we can arrange a tailor-made solution for you. If you would rather spend less time on makeup and more on skincare, we can do that. If you’d also like to talk about hair, we can fit that in too! We’ll chat about what you would like to get out of the masterclass when you book in a time and date and work out a suitable package.
CAN I ADD EXTRA TIME TO A MASTERCLASS?
If you let me know at the time of booking, of course we can add in some extra time!
Extended sessions are $45 for every additional 30 minutes.
DO YOU DO CORPORATE STYLING SESSIONS?
Yes, absolutely. Contact me directly so we can work out a package that suits you best.
WHAT ABOUT TEENAGER OR MOTHER-DAUGHTER BEAUTY MASTERCLASSES?
That can be arranged. Beauty Masterclasses with teenagers will also incorporate skincare (standard $200/90 min rate applies).
It’s loads of fun learning about makeup with your daughter! We need a little extra time for two, so Mother-Daughter Beauty Masterclasses are 2 hours ($150 per person).
WHAT ABOUT MEN?
I’m happy to tailor a styling or skincare masterclass for men. Send me a message and we’ll chat about what will work best for you.
DO YOU TAKE PEOPLE SHOPPING?
If you want to add a personal shopping trip on to a styling package, that can be arranged. I can take you shopping for beauty products or clothes (or both!), depending on your needs. Shopping trips are $200 for 2 hours.
Privacy is paramount, so everything that is discussed in the session remains between us.
DATE CHANGE POLICY
I reserve the right to change a booking date or time, within reason.
Contact me within 7 days to change the time or date of a scheduled appointment.
Payment must be made in full on arrival for the masterclass or styling session, and then we’ll get cracking!
