Our Treatment Guide


Clients book a make-up session with a beauty therapist for a number of different reasons. These include:

  • learning how to apply make-up for the first time
  • learning how to use make-up to disguise facial scars, blemishes or birthmarks
  • wanting to look their best for a special occasion such as, for example, a wedding or an important job interview
  • simply wanting to pamper themselves, have a wonderfully relaxing experience and learn how to improve their appearance through the use of cosmetics.

A make-up session allows the client to learn about the range of cosmetics best suited to their skin type and the colour palette to use for the best effect. A makeup consultation will involve talking through, with the beauty therapist, the ‘look’ that the client wants to achieve; deciding on the types of products and colours most suitable for the client; facial cleansing, toning and moisturising and, finally, the application of the cosmetics themselves.

These normally include foundation (plus concealer or any other corrective make-up necessary), powder, blusher, eyeshadow, mascara, eyebrow pencil and lipstick.
