How many people are there in the class?
Classes are limited to 8 people or 10 for parties and group bookings.
How often are the workshops held?
Every 3rd or 4th weekend, usually on Saturday afternoons, sometimes Sundays.
How long does a workshop last?
One afternoon, approx 5 hours.
What are the workshops you have?
We have Eye makeup, Nail Care & Style, Hair Care & Style workshops.
Where does it take place?
At Pro Makeup Academy in Nugegoda. There is a spacious makeup room there with lots of natural light. There is plenty of parking, and we have a changing room and washroom on the premises.
If I book out the whole session, can you do the class at a different venue, one of our choice?
I am happy to do this, but certain conditions need to be provided. Above all, we need plenty of good natural light.
Who is the class suitable for?
It is suitable both for women who want to update their look and for those who are learning to apply makeup for the first time.
Is this class suitable for those wanting a career in makeup?
The workshops/Classes are designed for personal makeup needs. Young makeup artists could benefit from it, but it is not designed with makeup artists in mind.
Is it mostly young women attending the workshop?
No, it is actually mostly women between 30 and 70, although I had some young girls (the youngest so far was 13). The oldest person to join us was 62!
Do you do private tutorials?
Sometime we do.. But certain conditions need to be provided.. The demand for workshops has been high so it is hard to find time for one on one sessions. However, everybody gets some individual time during the workshops/Classes, whilst some of what we cover is general and concerns everyone. It is also beneficial being in a group as questions get asked that you might find interesting but hadn’t thought to ask. The groups are small enough to allow very personal approach.
Do you do Workshops/Classes for teenage girls?
Yes there are workshops/Classes specifically aimed at teenagers.
Can I book out the whole session for a party?
Yes, absolutely. We have had a 50th Birthday party, a 40th, a 60th, a couple of hens parties. We usually get the champagne going for those!
Is it cheaper per person to do group bookings?
Yes, there are discounts for booking for five or more.
Do you sell products?
I have a basic range of products that I use in the class, but the workshop is not about selling, but education. I do provide references of what I use and where it is available. Products you can buy in the class are the ones not available elsewhere in Sri Lanka.
Are the products available for purchase on the day of the workshop?
Yes, what I have is available on the day.
Do you require a deposit for the class?
Yes, a deposit is required to secure your place.
How can I pay the deposit?
Bank transfer or cheque.
Do you do corporate functions?
Yes, I organize these on request and can do them at various locations.
In your workshop, do you teach us to work specifically with one product, or can we take away what we have learnt and use it with the cosmetics we already have?
You can use any products you like. I teach techniques that should work with a wide range of products.
My skin is allergic to a lot of makeup, do you have products I might be able to use?
I use gentle and natural products where I can, without synthetics, petrochemicals, parabens or other nasties. These products are suitable even for sensitive skin.
