Last Sunday I had the pleasure of being invited to a Celebrity MUA Masterclass arranged by Debenhams with Amy's Makeup Box
Having never been to a makeup masterclass before, especially with a Youtube blogger with over 400,000 followers, I was more than a little nervous and unsure what to expect.
The event started with an introduction at 10.30 and we were greeted with muffins (always a good start!) and refreshments. Amy was immediately lovely. Friendly, chatty and open to any questions that we had throughout the day, she immediately put everyone at ease. Amy was also more than happy to share her experiences of how she became an MUA and gave some great tips and advice of how to progress/start your career as a MUA and what you could expect.
We were shown how to do 2 looks over the course of the day, a bridal look and a glam look. Amy told us what product and brush that she was using at each step, also suggesting alternatives and giving lots of tips along the way.
I definately learned some great tips throughout the day, including a fool proof way of how to keep your eyebrows perfect all day with a great tip when applying pomade. Check out Amy's Youtube channel (link above) to find out how!
I particularly loved the bridal look and thought that the model looked beautiful. Gorgeous makeup without being overdone and was definately a look that I would re-create.
We broke for a lovely lunch of sandwiches and an array of cakes before getting into the second look, full on glamour.
I would not hesitate to recommend attending an future celebrity MUA masterclass. The whole day was wonderfully organised and we were made to feel very welcome. I have started using some of the tips and tricks I picked up on the day in my makeup routine, particularly in terms of preparation and longevity.
We were also gifted a wonderful goody bag of products supplied by Debenhams featuring Benefit, Dolls Beauty and Urban Decay which was a real treat.
If you see another event organised, particularly with the lovely Amy, go! I would definately repeat the experience and pick up even more tips!
