Private Make-Up Lessons

I suppose that I would be called a veteran make-up designer now, with decades of experience under my belt working in fashion, theatre, and advertising.


However, throughout my career, I have always been interested in personal make-up and have helped many women in the public eye as well as people just like you and me.


What really interests me now is helping what I call the invisible women, those like me who will never see sixty again.


Fashion editors either ignore us, add the occasional older model [ usually aged 45 -55 ], or lump us all together in advice for 60+ women as if there were no difference between someone aged 65 and 85.


This made me decide enough!


So as someone who knows from personal experience how an older face works I wanted to offer make-up advice for other older women.


As hair is equally important I can cover that as well as ideas and tips on your wardrobe if requested.


It is a curious thing that despite the millions of words in magazines and online I know that many women find it difficult to relate this to themselves, sometimes of course the advice is just incorrect.


Personal tuition in your own home gives you the chance to discuss what you would like to achieve with your make-up but more importantly how you wish to be SEEN.
Wardrobe advice can also be given,

I am not interested in clever make-up, my aim is to boost your confidence by showing you what is great about your face and then enhancing it.
I am not aligned to any cosmetic company and do not sell products.


When You Book

I will ask you to email or text me a photo of yourself wearing your usual makeup.

On The Day

I bring my make-up kit and if necessary a mirror. We discuss your skincare routine and look at what make-up you usually wear. Then having chosen and applied a foundation I take a “before “ photo of your face. After that we work step by step through a new routine, me demonstrating, then you copying, using your own products where suitable. I prefer clients to try the new ideas whilst I am there but some women just like to watch - your choice. When the make-up in finished I discuss your hair shape and colour and suggest ideas you may not have thought of, a good make-up requires a flattering hair style. We then take a photo of your new look. The lesson will take around an hour and a half

After The Lesson

You will receive via email the before and after photos, a make-up chart and a bespoke, detailed make-up routine with helpful tips and hints.

I Also Offer

Group Sessions
(For Up To 4 Women)

A group of friends can book a session together where I look at their own make-up and kits, make suggestions and show them how to enhance their features with the correct routine. In these sessions we concentrate particularly on the eyes and everyone gets a chance to try a new eye make-up.

Zoom Advice
(For Business Women)

This is an unforgiving medium and with my long experience in photography and commercials I can advise on make-up, hair, wardrobe and lighting for the perfect Zoom session

"This is all so helpful and interesting and I can see what a lovely brightening it can give."
