Good evening lovelies,
Can’t believe it’s Sunday night already 😦 My weekend has just gone by so quickly, but hey.. time flies when you are having fun 🙂
As you know, I had the pleasure of attending The Make-Up Mentor’s Masterclass today from 11-3pm. Have to say girls it was sooo good, and I can’t believe I have waited until now to attend a Masterclass! It was my first time to meet Tracy and she is such an amazing girl, and is unbelievably talented!!!
Tracy is a freelance MUA with over 8 years experience in the Make Up Industry! She trained with LA Make up Academy and has worked with Smashbox Cosmetics where she went from a part time sales assistant to full time counter manager with a very large client base, and still to this day has some of those clients still with her! During her time working with Smashbox she was known as ‘The Liner Queen’ and today I learned why she got this name! I have never seen somebody make it look so easy to do winged liner, and show us exactly how it’s done, and it is ALOT easier than we all think!! Tracy has worked along side some top celebrity MUA’s, worked on Miss Universe Ireland, and has had her work featured in Magazines and Newspaper! So it’s safe to say, if you are attending The Make-Up Mentors Masterclass, you are going to learn from one of the best out there today!
Below is the list of demonstrations done by Tracy in today’s Masterclass :
– Contouring / Highlighting
– Quick & Easy Day time look
– Going from a day look to a night look without having start from scratch
– Use of glitter
– Lip Liner & lips
– Applying Lashes
– Dupes for lots of products
The first look created I loved, it’s something that you can apply really quickly first thing in the morning, and if you apply it the way Tracy demonstrated, you’re guaranteed it will last you the day…
Following this look Tracey showed us how we can make this into a night look without having to take it all off and start from scratch, which makes sense considering the base is there with this natural look. Everyone in the class was interested in learning how to create the perfect smokey eye so this was the night look Tracy showed us how to create! Seriously, she makes it look so easy, and with her brilliant tips and techniques you’ll not be afraid to give even the smokiest of smokey eyes a try! I absolutely loved this look and was so happy to finally learn how to create this look without looking like a panda 🙂
As the Christmas season is fast approaching, Tracy included a glitter eye look in today’s class. We all love a bit of sparkle during the festive season 🙂 I love a nice glitter look myself but anytime I’ve tried it myself it’s ended up on my entire face, so it was great to finally learn the tricks on how to stop this happening…
See… I told you she was amazing!
Following the demos, we had the chance to try out our favourite look from the class on ourselves with one to one guidance from Tracy. I went with the smokey eye because it’s the one thing that I can never correctly create myself. So i gave it a go and got to work on my eyes, going over the eye make up I applied myself earlier, so was going from a day to night look without the need to start over… Here’s how I got on… not bad for my first time eh?
Obviously it’s nowhere near as amazing as what Tracy can do, but practice makes perfect and with the tips and techniques shoes today, I’ll hopefully be a pro in no time 😊
Overall, Tracy’s Masterclass is must do for anybody out there looking to get out of the rut they have found themselves in, applying the same look day in day out, for aspiring Makeup artists looking for excellent tips on popular make up looks, and even for a make up beginner. Tracy covers all the essentials and more in her classes and teaches them in a way that is easy to interpret. You have the added bonus of her being a lovely approachable girl that makes you feel so welcome and encourages you to ask any questions you might have throughout her class!
I thoroughly enjoyed my day and have come away with excellent tips on how to look fab, and also how to save myself a few bob with all the amazing dupes out there 🙂
If you would be interested in attending one of Tracy’s classes, head over to her Facebook page here and give her a message and she will be happy to give you all the details of price ect… Trust me, you will love it!
