Following on from my Makeup Tips and Tricks Party ………
I have been in the makeup industry now for over 8 years and I love to pass on my knowledge to anyone that will listen! Alongside my freelance work I have been teaching makeup now for 4 years to groups of female and male aspiring makeup artists at The Australian Academy of Cinemagraphic Makeup. I love training large groups of students at the academy and in my makeup workshops and parties but I also love to offer my clients one on one makeup tuition.
Not everyone can afford to spend thousands on studying a full makeup certificate or even find the time to hold a makeup workshop or party with their friends so one on one makeup tuition is the perfect solution.
A lot of woman really struggle and have no idea how to apply their own makeup. It can be very intimidating to walk into department stores and get bamboozled by hundreds of different lotions and potions and not have a clue what to buy and then leave after spending $$$ sold to them by a target driven sales lady on a cosmetics counter they have never heard of!
One on One tuition is for women who may be stuck in a rut and wish to learn some new techniques to brighten up their own makeup from day to day / work and basic looks to techniques on how to achieve a quick and simple smoky eye for going out.
These sessions are for women of any age and any skill level in makeup. I do not just work on youngsters in their 20’s with perfect skin but love to meet women in their 50’s and 60’s to help them feel revived and glamorous again.
I generally request 2 – 3 sessions of around 3 hours to talk through what is right for them and take them through easy application techniques on how to apply makeup themselves.
Two of my recent lovely clients were nice enough to write me the following testimonials on our one on one tuition's:
The following week I had two one on one makeup sessions with Jacqui. For the first session Jacqui asked me to do my own day time makeup look (no pressure at all!), she came to my house, had a look at my products and talked about what was missing or needed upgrading. I took lots of notes throughout the lesson and Jacqui was incredibly patient, she talked about all the products and the purpose for them, I have got pages and pages of notes to look back over! She also let me hold some of the brushes to apply the product myself, so she could help correct if required.
The second session was to complete an evening look, we did this session at Jacqui's house. I arrived to her makeup kit being spread all over the table, still amazing to see! We went over some of the information from the first session and I had some questions which Jacqui answered very patiently. During this lesson there was more opportunity for trying yourself, mainly because there are more products and blending darker eyes is such an art!
After both lessons and all my notes, I had put together quite a shopping list. Prior to the lessons I was very loyal to one particular brand so didn't know anything about other wonderful products that are available. Jacqui took me on a personal shopping trip to a makeup store in the city, it was a lot of fun - and less daunting because I with someone who knew all the products and could recommend the best ones. I totally love all my new products and my makeup bag now looks a little more varied!
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and the glamour makeover prior to the lessons. I learnt some wonderful tips and tricks during the lessons and as a result particularly my day time make up is completely different now and many of my friends are telling me how much younger I'm looking. I can only say a huge thank you to Jacqui for sharing her knowledge and skills with me and for being so super patient.

Thanks Jacq for an amazing 'all about me' experience. As you know I was desperately in need of a pick me up and our session did the trick. I have already had three good friends (the ones you can trust to tell it like it is) tell me I look great. They are genuinely amazed for as you know I have had more than my fair share of life's challenges thrown at me recently. I know it is the products you chose for me that have given me that glow.
You saved me time and money and I am so genuinely pleased with my products. So many times I have bought make-up because the assistant told me it was right for my skin type and colour only to get it home and find it wasn't right for me. I ended up giving it away or worse throwing it away. As I have aged I find I need fewer products but they must be right for my sensitive skin. In five minutes you had located exactly what I needed - immediately knew if it worked for me and when the lipstick colour wasn't quite right you found the one that was. It would have taken me all day and I still would have got it wrong!
Your expertise and skill meant that buying my make up was worry free. I got the best result at the right price as I didn't buy unnecessary products. I look and feel so much better. Thanks for the great tips and I will be spreading the word about how clever you are to all of my friends.
These sessions are great gift ideas so ……. spread the word to friends and family ;)
