COSMO BeautyClass Masterclass 2014

So this week I will be telling you about the Cosmo BeautyClass Masterclass that I attended with my friends last month. It was held at the Protea Fire and Ice Hotel in Melrose Arch and the tickets were R250pp.

We arrived at 9am and were greeted by a light breakfast of canapés and drinks whilst intermingling with the other attendees. We were then ushered to our workstations which had a goodie bag for each person to take home, a double sided mirror and a pile of makeup on the table to share between three people for use in the masterclass.

We waited forever for someone to come around to dispense foundations in little mini pots, one to match our skin colour and a shade darker to contour. The ladies dispensing the foundations were so clueless and gave us all incorrect shades (maybe it was the lighting in the room) so we asked them for all the shades and we swapped between us.

The remainder of the two hours was an instructional lesson done by makeup artist, Vuyo Varoy up on stage that we could follow watching the screens closest to us and using the makeup items on the table. I was disappointed with the concealer and setting powder they provided as the colour was way too light for my skin tone and I had to blend it to death. One lucky lady also got an extra prize for her overall makeup look which was judged by Revlon Ambassador, Bonang Matheba who made a guest appearance on the day.

Upon departure each lady also received a Toni and Guy shampoo and an energy drink. I am happy that I attended the event, not only because I got to spend a day out with the girls but because the goodie bags we received was way over the R250 we forked out and it gets you a 6-month print subscription to Cosmopolitan magazine delivered straight to your door. Can’t wait for next year’s event!
