The beauty of having professional make up applied is that you don't have to spend the day/night nipping to the loo and re-touching your make up. You can get on with having a great time. The makeup will last until you go to bed, some even report it lasting for a second day.

Lessons are completely tailored to suit your needs, be it the absolute basics in makeup techniques or more advanced artistry, where you might want to perfect a glamorous evening look, complete with contouring and lashes.

Laura is also a fully qualified and insured cosmetic tattooist specialising in brow tattooing. SPMU is an incredible technique to give frame and lift to the eyes which you do not have to wash off. Permanent because the pigment fades very gradually over time. This is important to allow scope to tweak slightly as we age. The process takes approximately 90 mins and can last from 1-5 years depending on skin type. Laura uses a digital tattoo machine rather than a Micro blade as it can achieve various brow effects to suit each individual.
