Festive Faces

With the Christmas season approaching, we took our students for a glamourous makeover at a local department store.

Festive Faces. Bobbi Brown Workshop.
Festive Faces. Bobbi Brown Workshop.

Tis the season to be MERRY and GLAM! A great excuse to get down to our well-loved local John Lewis department store for some seasonal sparkle. This is exactly what students did in the run up to Christmas. Met with the welcoming smiles of the friendly girls at the Bobbi Brown beauty counter in the shop, they were in for a real festive treat.

As they took their seats around the shimmering goodies and glamourous girls, the students seemed full of excitement. Our host introduced herself before seeking a volunteer for a full, free facial make over. Our most prompt student took up the position and was soon showered with Bobbi Brown products, tips and advice.

As the session went on, students tested a lot of their chosen Bobbi Brown lip, skin and eye products. Students also asked relevant questions in perfect, polite English as well as learning lots of make-up vocabulary. A fun and festive time was had by all and a few goodies were even given and sold to students attending the invigorating workshop.
