Client: Susan Padgham
Occupation: Senior GP Partner
Service utilised: Make-up lesson
As a full-time working mother and wife, Susie’s time is in short supply and as many of my clients, in a similar situation, have experienced, finding the time to focus on herself and the changing needs of her skin and make-up requirements (now that she was in her 40’s) was proving difficult.
Susie felt that she could do with a “… breath of fresh air for my now mummy look!!!” So a one-to-one make-up lesson was arranged, taking place at my studio in East Sussex.
AIM OF THE MAKE-UP LESSON
The aim of the make-up lesson was to find an elegant, enhancing day-time make-up look that was easy and fairly quick for Susie to apply in the mornings. Obviously the look needed to complement Susie’s skin tone and eye colour, but Susie also needed to feel comfortable with her new make-up look, knowing that it was embellishing her personal brand and, in turn, giving her new found confidence in the image that she is portraying.
DURING THE MAKE-UP LESSON…
we initially chatted about Susie’s (then) current skincare and make-up routine, whilst taking a look at the products in her make-up bag. For me this is a really interesting part of the lesson, it helps me to understand why clients choose the make-up products that they do; what’s currently working and not working for them; and I gain an insight into how I can be most effective in delivering a make-up lesson tailored to their requirements.
We then moved onto the practical part of the session and I started off by applying the make-up look to one-side of Susie’s face and she practised on the other-side. This allowed Susie to see which make-up brushes were best for a particular application, gave her the opportunity to receive direct feedback as to how best to create the look we were aiming for and introduced her to some gorgeous new products.
AFTER THE SESSION
One week after the session Susie then received a full write-up of everything we discussed, including brushes, products and the most appropriate application techniques to use.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with Susie and I believe Susie’s lovely review is testimony to how valuable she found the lesson
