Day 1 at London Muse

So for those of you who don't know what London Muse I'll tell you now, it is a make up school, in London. It is run by a make up artist called Nicci Jackson, who has amazing credentials, and her team of selected make up artists, including those of YouTube fame, Pixiwoo.

I want to do a three week make up course, but at over £3000, I thought it would be best to try out one of the shorter courses to make sure the make up school was for me so I went for the catwalk trends bootcamp which is a 2 day weekend course.

Today was the first day of the course and I loved it. We was taught by Francesco Lo Cascio who was lovely and friendly and wanted us all to think of him as our dad.

The morning was theory, which suited me fine as I had a very early morning and would have been useless if I was handed a make up brush. We was first shown how to do 80's make up, and was told about how important is to know about make up in different periods. After the 80's he moved onto iconic make up and finally showed up how to block out brows and how to create different brow styles.

The afternoon was the practical part. We had to take one of the themes we was shown in the morning and run with it. I decided to pick the 80's theme as I am fairly comfortable with a smokey eye and wanted to practise something different. Here is how the make up I did turned out:
There was only 8 of us in the class so it was nice and intimate and we got lots of personal attention from Francesco who was very encouraging and always very willing to help. I had a lovely day and I can't wait until tomorrow!
