I bought a one day intensive makeup course with Make Up For Ever on a Groupon/City Deal for €79 which was a massive discount off their ‘voucher value price’ of €255. I attended this course on Tuesday 30th August and thought I would do a review of it.
The one-day intensive course, which should in reality be entitled a 4-hour course kicked off at 10:00 a.m. in MUFE store, which is located on Clarendon Street in Dublin 2. The training room is set up at the back of the store behind black velvet curtains, which incidentally don’t block out the sound of the hoover going or staff shouting in the store over said hoover. There were 12 of us on the course, all booked with a Groupon voucher from what I could ascertain and it was a mixed group aged between 20 and 50. Some were there with friends; there was a mum and daughter duo (what a lovely thing to do with your mum!!) and a few Billy-no-mates, like myself. We were set up 2 to a station and I ended up beside a lovely lady from Wexford. It was a friendly room, and Lauren who took the class was very competent and sweet. I had a few gripes, and yeah okay I’ll admit that I’m a fussy tart about details of comfort but it did annoy me that there were 2 different height chairs for students, I ended up on one of the really high ones, which meant I had to bend down into the mirror set up on the counter to see myself in it. We are talking the kind of high that means you are looking into your own crotch all day!! Read the rest of this entry »
