When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing I love more than having the girls over for drinks, nibbles and chatter (often accompanied by a cheesy 90s film and/or soundtrack). I’d much rather slather on a face pack than stick on my heels, and I truly believe I know more than any DJ when it comes to female R’n’B artists from 1998-2001 (Sweet Female Attitude, anyone? Mary Mary? Brandy and Monica?!).
When Clothing at Tesco asked if I’d like to host a Jemma Kidd masterclass @HOME party, I was initially dubious. I’ve been to my fair share of Ann Summers, Avon and Body Shop parties to know that these things are usually just a hard sell for the products, often with a lukewarm glass of Chardonnay and a limp sausage roll. A bit of research, however, soon had me interested…
“Be your own makeup artist and learn how to apply perfect, glamorous evening makeup, acquiring the professional skills to create three stunning looks – all in the comfort of your own home. Starting with the basic principles in achieving a flawless canvas, you’ll learn all the backstage techniques and tricks to create a hi-impact red lip and structured eye line, a smouldering smoky eye and full-on glamour using touches of shimmer and glitter.”
Sounds good! I like to think I’m pretty good at doing my makeup – after all, I’ve had 10 years to hone my technique – but I am rubbish at doing anything ‘special’, like straight liquid liner or lipstick that doesn’t look like it was applied by a 3 year-old. And because it’s hosted ‘@HOME’, I can get the girls round, wear my slippers and play all the En Vogue I want.
The lovely people at Jemma Kidd have invited me to host a makeup masterclass at Little Bird Towers (cue lots of frantic texting trying to locate a table to seat 9), and they’d like one of you to host one too!
