Friday saw the long-anticipated celebrity masterclass hosted by the fantastically talented Sean Maloney and Fern Howe-Shepherd, arguably two of the most sought after Make Up Artists. I have literally been so excited for this event ever since Sean sent me my invite over, I’ve seen the masterpieces that Sean creates on a daily basis, and I’ve followed Fern and was so excited to see her statement glam look created!
When we arrived at Aurora House of Beauty, the beaut location for this star-filled event, we were greeted with a champagne arrival and the most gorgeous cupcakes; they were seriously to die for!! There was a red carpet that really gave the venue an initial extra glam and exclusive feel, and then at the back of the room was the most gorgeous luxury pink blush flower wall from Starlight Venue that made some amazing picture opportunities. It also made me question whether it was acceptable to ask them to make me one for my bedroom, could you imagine the photos you could get!?
After some time mingling with people downstairs, we headed upstairs to the Sean Maloney makeup Academy, where the room had been transformed into the perfect demonstration room for Sean and Fern to demonstrate their looks, both of which were a soft glam look. Sean was up first, with his model, actress Chelsee Healey and then Fern demonstrated after on her model Holly Peers. The finished looks on both models looked incredible and is a look that I would certainly recommend for one of your nights out! Dressed in InTheStyle and with makeup from the demonstrations, the girls looked incredible!
Unlike other makeup masterclasses, this wasn’t just watching the two babes work their magic, Sean and Fern both took to the stage and shared their extensive industry knowledge, letting us in on tips and tricks. I learnt some fab tricks to take away with me, for example, my personal favourite: when putting on lip liner work from the outer lip up rather than starting at the top!
What I particularly liked about this master class is that Sean and Fern were so approachable after the event for guests to ask them questions. Sometimes in a situation where a demonstration is taking place, people don’t necessarily feel comfortable just shouting out a question there and then. That is why I thought it was so lovely that after the demonstrations there was plenty of time for chatting with Sean and Fern to ask them any questions, and of course, they were both completely up for chatting!
When Sean first invited me to this event I was excited to watch the demonstrations and hear the tricks, but we all know that I love a goody, and when he hinted to me what was in the goody bags, I never would have thought it would be as good as it was on the night! Every goody bag had different things inside, and I thought, you know what, why not show you all exactly what I got, including a beautiful eyeshadow palette from Sample Beauty, brushes from Spectrum Beauty, gift vouchers, lipsticks, lipbalms and lots more!
Sean and Fern both smashed their masterclass, and I really hope there are more of these in the future!! Thanks for the invite guys, I loved every second!
