MAKEUP LESSONS

Ever felt you needed a 'GPS' just to navigate the beauty counters?!

Visiting the beauty counters in a department store or chemist is like stepping into a land of opportunity.  There’s the promise of an exotic, new look...the hope of an uplifting, enriching experience...a better, more elegant you.  Yet, when shopping for new makeup, do you find yourself filled with confusion? 

There are too many cosmetics brands and choices!

With so many brands claiming unbelievable results and ‘miracle’ ingredients, it’s easy to become ‘paralysed by choice’ and leave empty-handed, or worse, with yet another mistake-purchase in your handbag.

If this sounds like you, you are not the only one - it’s so easy to get confused!  Most beauty departments are a kaleidoscope of colours, textures, formulas, foreign words, competing brands, designer labels, celebrity endorsements...and then there’s the (often pushy) sales people!  

So how can you choose?

With skin and beauty, ‘one size fits all’ just isn’t true - one size fits only one!  So the answer to ‘How can I choose?”  or, “What should I buy”? starts with you.   

To make your dream of looking consistently gorgeous come to life with makeup, you’ll need to consider your natural colourings, skin type, lifestyle, personal fashion style, sense of aesthetic (what you think looks beautiful), skill level and budget - whew!

You don’t know what you don’t know:

Do you regularly follow tips from the beauty section of your favourite women’s magazine?  If so, I understand if you’re confused!  Beauty editors have a habit of publishing advice that is too general or simply unwearable in real life, and too brand-biased to be of any use. 

Are you easy prey for the beauty counter ladies at the chemist or department store?  It can be tempting to throw money at the latest beauty ‘innovations’ or trends in order to update your look, but wasting money is never pretty.  And following the fickle, ever-changing, world of fashion can be draining.

Or, like many women, are you wearing your makeup the same today as when you first learnt to apply it?  And decades later, you have changed but your makeup hasn’t?

Fact:  no beauty product or brand is ‘foolproof’

The next time you’re in the beauty aisles there’s a good chance you’ll be wasting time trying on products that, for a variety of reasons, will never work for you.  Believe it or not, despite the advertising claims, there are products that are unsuitable for you and doomed to fail your unique needs.  Even an expensive, ‘cult fave’ or popular product can be a disaster.

And using a makeup, or a certain prestige brand, does not automatically make you more attractive!  In fact, it can do the opposite.  Have you ever been put off someone or distracted by their badly applied makeup?

SYSTEM = Save Your Self Time, Energy, Money

Every disappointing beauty purchase costs you time, energy and money.  Save yourself these precious resources - and avoid the regret of another failed beauty purchase - by giving yourself ‘a beautiful education’.    

A personal consultation is THE way to learn what suits you in the world of makeup and beauty.  The principles, tips and tricks you’ll learn are exactly what you need to enhance your best features - with your own hands - using colours that look stunning on you.  And to discover the pro blending techniques (made simple) that will take your look from good, to great, to gorgeous! 

What you get in all lessons with Lillybeth

Unbiased Advice

While my team and I all have our favourite products, our services are not exclusively loyal to one brand. We use what works best for our clients. In your lesson you'll receive advice that works across brands. If you'd like to explore different brand options from my kit, you can.

Hands-on Experience

Unlike most 'makeup consultations', in a lesson with Lillybeth you'll apply your own makeup with the brushes and tools in your hands, because this is how one learns! Learn as you go with patient guidance, and have control of how much or little you apply.

No Pressure

Have you ever been pressured to buy product after a service? At paid Lillybeth appointments, while we might offer solutions, you're never 'expected' to buy anything extra. If you really don't want to change what you're using, you're free to do the lesson with your own products. That's our No-Pressure Promise.

Colours That Suit You

The 'Colour Seasons' system informs my recommendations so you get colours that suit you - not just trends! If you know your colour season I'll help you make sense of it so your makeup harmonises with your personal palette.

Privacy

Unlike in stores, your lesson is private. In your home or my venue there are no people walking past so you can relax. You won't appear on my website, instagram etc unless you want to. All your photos are kept private unless you give me express permission to share.

Authentic Beauty

The 'Dressing Your Truth' system by Carol Tuttle helps me make the best recommendations for you based on your own expression of self. So instead of just assessing your physical features, you will be guided towards results that support your natural energy and personality.

What Previous Lesson Customers Are Saying

  • Jude van den Broek

    I dreaded going into a pharmacy or department store to buy makeup as I felt I that was pounced upon on my arrival and had to purchase that particular sales person's brand rather than look at everything that was available and find the best (unbiased opinion) product for me. Lillybeth introduced me to a fantastic skin care range and a different makeup brand, both that I was unfamiliar with, that I love. My skin has never looked better. So I am very grateful for this.

    Wonderful result I would say! I'm really impressed with the before and after photos. I just look so much more vibrant and animated in the after photo!

  • Megan Simon

    At the age of 34 I found myself in a position where I needed to look more professional, with no previous experience of having to do my makeup on a daily basis. Lillybeth was so patient and helpful. I found her instructions easy to follow. I was inspired to make the effort, when I had previously found the idea of it all quite daunting. I am so grateful for her help! (Full Makeup Consultation)

    I am now in my fifties and wish I had found someone like Lillybeth years ago! I have never had professional advice before on how to apply makeup. I would certainly recommend having a session with Lillybeth to anyone that wears makeup - the younger the better - you may as well get it right from the beginning! (Full Makeup Consultation)

You need a consultation with Lillybeth if:

• You don’t wear much makeup because you are hesitant about what colours and products suit you

• You wish you knew how to use eye makeup to enhance your natural eye colour

• You know you ‘should’ change up your makeup routine but don’t know what to change to

• You’re stuck on how to overcome a particular skin type, challenge or facial feature (Eg. scar, redness, small eyes, sparse brows etc

• You’re sick of reading ‘advice’ from beauty ‘experts’ and they all say something different! Or seeing adverts from cosmetic companies and not knowing what or who to believe!

...Or, if you love makeup but are not sure you’re doing it ‘right’ and would love a fresh, honest opinion and to sit down with a dedicated makeup artist for in-person guidance.

'A beautiful education' with Lillybeth is unique in that, unlike beauty stores and salons, our time together is private, convenient, unhurried and in natural light.  All services take place in your Tauranga area home, office or my private room near Bayfair Shopping Centre, in the sunny beach town of Mount Maunganui.  

Make a morning or day of it:  After their lesson, many women say "I feel like going out and dancing"!  Book a lunch date or dinner out afterwards, family photos, new portrait photos or SOMETHING, anything, to get the full value from your lesson while wearing your beautiful, self-applied makeup.  

Not sure which of the below services is the best fit for you? Tell me about yourself!  I'd love to know why you're on my website today, what stage of life you're in, who you want to impress...or let’s talk about your latest project or new business, and the image you want to project to your customers. Let's talk!
