Meet Tisha. She booked in with Paul for a full face makeup lesson. Tisha wanted to learn how to create a perfect winged out eyeliner along with a half cut crease eye look.
Introducing Jamie who wanted to learn a bold drag style of makeup. Here is what Jamie had to say after the lesson.
I went for a make up lesson at Born. The lesson was well structured, planned and organised logically. Paul was very professional and patient. The lesson allowed me to focus and spend more time on areas which were more problematic for me whilst still completing an overall look.
His explanations were very clear as are the very useful guide notes following the lesson. It has given me a greater understanding of what I’m doing and why opposed to just applying make up – I-d highly recommend it – has changed my confidence and was money well spent. Thank you Paul.
