The Lillybeth Makeup School is a social enterprise through which I offer young women hands-on makeup training, job experience and basic business skills related to the makeup industry. It's my usual team training, but opened up to include a few other individual young women each year.
The school solves a business problem for me in that it provides me with talent who are trained in my style and values to potentially include in my business, and at the same time offers local young women the chance to develop self-confidence through our makeup-focussed community.
Most members of the school are under age 25, have an interest in makeup, want to create or supplement their income by working as a professional makeup artist and may also be in need of direction, confidence and encouragement.
What the school offers:
• Quarterly training sessions alongside real, working makeup artists
• Hands-on, real-life makeup experience working as a team for local fundraising fashion shows and charity events
• The potential to be offered paid makeup work as part of the Lillybeth team
There is no qualification to be gained, except the experience of learning from and working alongside myself and each other and being part of a dynamic makeup artist support community.
CUSTOMERS: You help support this initiative when you book myself or my Lillybeth artists/team. This social enterprise is sustainable as long as I have a supportive income from my paid work. Not only will you be supporting a small, local business, you'll be part of this investing into the lives and futures of young women right here in Tauranga, New Zealand.
CHARITIES: Are you a charity planning an event or fundraising fashion show? We will take care of all the makeup for your models and/or guests speakers at a discounted rate or work out a deal with payment in kind, with your event as real-world experience for our dynamic team.
PHOTOGRAPHERS: Are you a photographerwho works on beauty, lifestyle, fashion or bridal photoshoots? I usually have at least one of my team or school needing professional images for her portfolio. We are open to 'TFP' (paid in images) collaborative shoots where we supply the makeup, you supply the model/s and photography. The more models/faces, the better! Contact me to see if your project's a good fit.
