Tammerly's First Ever Makeup Master Class

My gorgeous friend Lisa - before and after.

First can I tell you that I am proud of Pink Diva Makeup Artistry - for five years it has been my business, a long term dream and it gives me so much pleasure making women of all ages and shapes feel beautiful for special occasions. The joy of teaching women about what I love so much has always been a dream of mine. Back in 2006 when I picked up my very first brush roll I wanted to become just like my makeup teacher Debbie Muller and teach the art of makeup.

So it gives me great pleasure to announce that school is back... and you are invited to Pink Diva's Makeup Master Class. Our first class was officially held on Sunday 24th July 2011. Each class hosts 12 women of all ages and I take them through a makeup journey. Every woman walks out knowing how to complete your makeup from start right through to finish. They will walk out feeling confident about their application, knowing how to use every single product that they have accumulated over the years, and simply feeling more beautiful using the tricks and techniques that I share.

The first time in Lisa's life she has ever worn red... or this much makeup!

The three hour class is held at Your Special Day Showroom. My good friend Natasha started running Your Special Day as a wedding planning business but now the word has spread, she is doing everything from weddings to wedding expos, birthday parties and evening christenings! I thank her for having us in her beautiful store. The morning started with setting up the tables for my 12 beautiful students - some who came with friends and others who came alone. Each woman was treated to a fantastic beauty bag containing goodies supplied by Dr Lewinn's, Benefit, Furless Brushes, Harlotte Cosmetics, MOR and Vani-T to name a few.

My friend Lisa was kind enough to be the model for the day and I transformed her from a tired (and slightly hungover) beauty into an even more beautiful beauty!!!!! As I completed the steps on Lisa, the students also followed the steps and if need be they borrowed the right products and tools from me to ensure their finish was superior. I supported the girls with each step by keeping an eye on their progress and making suggestions as they went along to give them all the confidence that they deserve.

After creating our perfect base, we had a little mingle and morning tea break - we wished one student Michelle a happy birthday and sung to her before enjoying mini cupcakes. Then we got stuck in to the tricky sections such as blush and bronzer... and the eyes (gulp!!!)

As you can see from the photos, every woman walked away looking so beautiful, feeling confident and learning a lot. I have popped a few of the wonderful testimonials here to show you just how much fin Pink Diva's Makeup Master Class can be. We have booked the next event for Sunday 23rd October 2011 - I hope you can make the next one!!

“Just wanted to drop by and say a very big thank you for the service you provided yesterday at the makeup tutorial. It was great that you were able to make us "fall in love" AGAIN with our existing goodies in our makeup bag as well as recommend some great new ones. I am loving primer.....I have always loved face primer, but found the BENEFIT eyelid primer absolutely fabulous. My eye makeup had not moved when I had my shower later that night. I also loved the eyebrow gel.....I felt very well groomed....it makes sense to spend a little time on our brows especially when we spend so much time ensuring our hair on our head is perfect. I am at work today with very glamorous eyes and feel fabulous... thanks again for all your help.”

"Just came on to write a thank you and you beat me to it. It was a great class today and great to finally put a face to the name! I wish I could do my makeup as great as you do, but now I have some skills so will keep on trying!"
