The Blush School of Makeup - Hair & Makeup Lessons

Makeup tips from the trade will show you how to create a flawless look for any occasion.

Blush offers makeup lessons in your own home or office or at the studio with tips from the trade, colour analysis and a guide to application.

Makeup lessons come in two stages, beginners and advanced, however we recommend that if you are new to Blush you start with the beginners lesson to ensure you're on the right track.

Beginners makeup lesson

This lesson is suitable for those who wear very little makeup already and need to learn the basics of makeup application, or are new to Blush.

Advanced makeup lesson

This lesson goes into greater detail and shows you how to take day wear makeup into evening wear and covers the different techniques of shading, colour choices and if you wish, false eyelash application.

  • Tips from the top on makeup application and colour analysis.
  • Advice on skincare and makeup tips from the top.
  • Question and answer session when you get to voice all your needs and concerns with ways to target problem areas.

Personal makeup lessons:

Your Blush makeup artist will work on one half of your face whilst you work on the other under close supervision.

Here you will learn much about the beginners class with a simpler, younger element to it, looking at trends of the time, fun colours as well as natural looking makeup, and more importantly what not to wear!

The Beginner 16 + yrs

We do recommend anyone new to Blush starts with a beginners class, as much of the basics of makeup application will be learnt here, along with getting the right foundation and day wear makeup. Evening wear makeup is only lightly covered in this class if requested

The Advanced Class
