Charity makeup extravaganza coming to Welwyn Garden City

THE “ultimate makeup experience” is being offered at a WGC college with makeovers, photo shoots, haircuts and makeup lessons ongoing to raise funds for charity this Friday (May 21).

The Makeup Extravaganza at Oaklands College, on The Campus, will help raise funds for Cancer Research UK Relay For Life.

A luxury skin preparation supplied by the John Lewis Clarins team will be on offer, alongside fantasy face painting, haircuts for gents and even a special effects makeup table for people how would like to get a TV casualty makeover.

Oaklands makeup lecturer, Matt Johnson, believes the majority of women, with a little effort and some tips on application techniques can look fabulous.

He said: “There is a common misconception that fashionable makeup is for the young and beautiful, - anyone can look fantastic with the right makeup and all ladies attending the day can be assured that we adhere to the highest health and safety standards as we have recently installed crack proof glass in all our mirrors!
