What an amazing line up of Makeup Artists, I enjoyed every minute of it.

I loved last years Masterclass (Click to read blog post about Kryolan Masterclass 2016) Is a must attend event for any Make-up lover and young people who want to take their game to the next level.

Kryolan is the best place to learn. They hold many Masterclasses and Workshops at their store in Covent Garden.

Visit their website and check out what they have lined up. You can pick and choose what workshops to take. They have leading Makeup Artists who come and teach.

I was excited to meet Mimi Choi, an amazing MUA  from Canada. Mimi creates incredible illusion makeup looks.

I loved watching Sharon Dowsett such an inspiring artist. She gets to know her models and every look she creates has a story.  She gets inspiration from most mundane objects and creates a high fashion look from that.

Loved hearing the wonderful stories from Karin Darnell and all the celebrities she has worked with. Sanatan Dinda the current World Bodypainting Champion was such an inspiration, with such an amazing technique.  He did a beautiful job on his Bodypainting Demo.

Stuart Bray is a master of Prosthetics, I love everything he does, check the images and see his incredible work.

Jordan Plath came all the way from USA Kryolan team and showcased his talents with some amazing SFX makeup.

The Kryolan team created some beautiful make-up looks showing us trends for 2018-2019. I was happy to hear that this year we might see the death of contouring. Back to basics and earth tones are in.

The event was super inspirational. No matter how much you know, there is always more to learn. I would highly recommend you attend next years masterclass and see for yourself. It is well worth it. Thank you Kryolan for having me. I look forward to Kryolan Masterclass 2018.
