Learn how to make natural mineral makeup

Come and learn how to make your own mineral makeup,  using all natural ingredients. Let Jan show you healthy alternatives to the toxic chemicals that are present in most mainstream cosmetics. Why risk long term health problems or allow these chemicals to dry and damage your skin? In comparison, mineral makeup nourishes your skin whilst   enhancing your looks.

There are two workshops; natural makeup and mineral makeup. In the mineral makeup workshop you'll learn how to make your own natural foundation, blushers and eye shadows. In the natural makeup workshop you’ll learn how to make your own mascara, lipsticks, lip gloss, eye and lip  pencils.

Imagine the pleasure of wearing makeup crafted specifically to enhance your features. Imagine the satisfaction of making cosmetics. Imagine the security of knowing you’re applying healthy substances onto your skin.

Turn these skills into an enjoyable hobby, as you create   cosmetics for family and business, giving them unique and treasured gifts. This could even be the start of a business  opportunity if you want to turn craft into cash.
