Here is a bit more information to give you a more in-depth overview of levels of EstherMarie Lessons and Workshops

All EstherMarie lessons and workshops are bespoke and based on the assessed needs of the attendees. As you can imagine some attendees are more competent and have a greater understanding, they can express their needs in a confident manor whilst others may not even own any products and have never applied makeup before.

There are many reasons, revamping you makeup bag to gain new ideas, wedding and special occasion, teenager, prom, 10 years younger allergies and camouflage to name a few.
You might be purchasing for a gift or a surprise for someone.

It is very important that you COME WEARING YOUR NORMAL MAKEUP LOOK and BRING ALL THE MAKEUP PRODUCTS AND TOOLS YOU OWN no matter how old they are, this is not a judgement on you but will  provide essential information very quickly including buying habits and mistakes made. The more prepared you are coming to a lesson and workshop, using photos of what you do and do not like the more you will get out of it.

​​Following pre and post appointment guidelines are essential they are updated on a regular basis and can be found at  https://www.esthermarie.co.uk/services/pre-appointment-and-aftercare-advice

At any event you can be as interactive as you wish .. if you just want to watch and take your time that is not a problem. Some stages are repeated with further appointments until you have the confidence to move on to the next stage. As again everyone has different levels of learning and it’s important that time is given to perfect your skill.

All products are supplied by EstherMarie and are available for retail at the event. However, it is essential that you bring your own makeup for review and where possible most of your products if suitable will be used. Please do not purchase any new products pre-event, you might find you don’t need them !
