A few weeks back
I was given the opportunity by the lovelies at Beauty Crowd (thanks guys!) to
attend my first ever make-up course.

The course was
run by The House of Glamdolls which was set up by David Horne and Chinyee Chu.

I decided to do
my research before I arrived and found out that David created the legendary
Illamasqua Skin Base and Hydra/Matte Veils – this, in itself, had me excited!
Chinyee had worked at MAC and Illasmaqua so I knew I was in good hands!

This being my
first make-up course I was a little bit nervous but shouldn’t have been. The
House of Glamdolls offers a really friendly and comfortable experience from the
amazing interior (homely meets eclectic meets make-up) to the personal approach
throughout the course. 

David and Chinyee took the time to really talk to us and
discuss with us as well as demonstrate and teach – all in a really comfortable
way which I enjoyed.

During the class
we recreated a Foxy Vamp look using products from Freedom Makeup which is a
make-up line run under the same company as Makeup Revolution which is aimed
mostly at pro MUAs.

I was surprisingly
impressed by the quality of the Freedom Makeup products. The Pro Conceal Palettes and the ultra-affordable Decadence Rock & Roll eyeshadow palette
were my favourite products on the day – both had amazing colour payoff and were
great in texture.

I also loved the
Glamdolls Glam Base Wheel 2 (also created by David) which I have now added to
my make-up wishlist!

At the course I
had the opportunity to meet and speak with Adam Minto the creator of Makeup
Revolution/Freedom Makeup. It was great to speak to the man himself but I did
have to stress the importance of expanding the shade range of the base products
for PoC. I had to use Skin Base as my foundation as the Freedom Makeup bases
did not cover deeper skin tones which I have to admit was a bit disappointing
but not surprising.

All in all I had
an amazing day and learnt a lot! 

I felt very privileged to able able to meet
David and Chinyee and to be taught by David.

If you wish to
book a course at The House of Glamdolls whether you’re a beginner or pro you

Many thanks to all at Beauty Crowd for this opportunity!
