Pixiwoo Makeup Course...


Last month I travelled down to Norwich to spend a week with Pixiwoo! I have wanted to do a makeup course for a long time so when the opportunity came up to do a course with Nic & Sam, I jumped at the chance. On Monday 15th April I walked into the studio, a little late as I did get lost, and was surrounded by loads of girls from all around the world to do the course. First of all I was stunned by how beautiful Sam & Nic actually are, I know they look amazing on You Tube but they really are stunning in real life. Sam was like a walking super model! So we all introduced ourselves and then got straight into the makeup. It was like being in a sweet shop, the amount of makeup is UNBELIEVABLE! 

Throughout the week Sam & Nic went through so many different makeup looks. From weddings, to smokey eyes, to red lips, to drag queen, to blocking out brows & then my favourite, going through the history of makeup. You can really tell that Sam has such a passion for all the different eras and it was really interesting to look through the 20's style all the way through to today.

We looked at different eye & face shapes, how to contour & highlight & how to apply eye liner & lip liner. We also got the chance to be really creative with some of the looks. I loved using eyeshadow pigments on a lip to create a really cool effect. I also really enjoyed turning Barbara into a Drag Queen!

So my week came to an end but I met some truly lovely people, Barbara from Switzerland, Maren from Germany, Christina from New York, Becky & Maddie from Norwich, Laura from Rhode Island & Emma from Southampton. All the girls were amazing and to travel from such a distance really showed how people really respect Pixiwoo as make-up artists!

I hope you enjoy the pictures above and please check out Pixiwoo's channel on You Tube www.youtube.com/channel. If Sam, Nic & Stacey ever read this post then I just want to say thank you for such a great week and for all the amazing things you taught us.

Love Becca...X
