I went for a Mac one and was really disappointed. The girl who did it didn't seem t know what she was doing and my "natural" makeover made me look like a street performer. I had to pay and the fee was redeemable against products I have booked a Bobbi Brown for Friday - it's free
I had a Bobbi Brown one a little while ago and found I just looked the same as I do normally. I wanted to come away with make up that looked like the make up artists but I just looked like me. She also said there wasn't really a lipstick I could wear because my lips are small (they're not that small. I'm no Angelina but seriously, I have lips!). It put me off a bit. I want something that I wouldn't do myself but yes, totally not aiming for the street performer look!
Hmmm...thanks for posting Clem I might have a google and see what other options I have.
I had a £50 MAC lesson and it was really good - I think it depends on which person you get on the day.
The end result was a bit OTT for me but some of the techniques she explained I have been able to use in real life and got a couple of brilliant new prods - eyeliner pencil that actually stays put and an eyebrow pencil. Oooo also a paint that stops eyeshadow creasing. Well worth it IMO
