Having had my colour analysis with Fiona, which has made shopping so much easier and enjoyable, I decided to join Fiona for her make-up course. Having learnt so much about how to dress to compliment my colouring, I now know what colours and styles suit me, so there is less room for mistakes and wasted spending. I also gave my 14 year old daughter a colour and style gift for Christmas, which she loved, and it has made shopping for her so much easier too.
I have to admit, I am the two-minute make-up applicator, using my fingers to apply foundation, a quick under-eye-liner, mascara and a bit of lippy, usually applied as an afterthought “on the run”. I was therefore a bit sceptical as to whether I would gain much from the class as I am not about to spend hours in front of the mirror in the mornings, but golly was I wrong. Apart from the constant giggles and having to reapply foundation to the tears running down my face, I learnt a lot that I will take advantage of for making the most out of the colours and application of shading which suits my eye shape. I hadn’t appreciated the art form and how subtle techniques can enhance one’s looks.
There were two other lovely ladies on the course and we all allowed Fiona to advise us on colours that she knew would suit us, but which we would never have considered. What we learnt was that the colour in the pallet isn’t how the colour looks on your skin, and building up different colours and blending different shades in different places would change the shape and size of your features.
Fiona showed us how to apply make-up using different brushes, how to apply false eye lashes for those special moments, and gave us all the confidence to try something new.
We all came away from the afternoon having had such a good time, learning how to step out of our boring comfort zones and knowing that we can use our new skills to make us look and feel fabulous.
This really was a treat and a great girly time to share with others. I have signed up to go shopping with Fiona very soon, so I can’t wait to learn more tips and to bring the joy of shopping back into my life.
I would totally recommend everyone to use Fiona’s colour and style services and to let your hair down and have a brilliant time.
