Hey hey so this is my 1st post! (How exciting)
When I was 6yrs old my mum asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I told her I wanted to be a Make up artist. Shortly after that conversation my mum let me do her make up I and I made her look like a very glamorous chimney sweep!=D  so I have always had the passion to be a make up artist! I can happily say that none of my clients have ever looked like chimney sweeps since!
In august 2011 I attended the Pixiwoo intensive course and am now a qualified Make up artist! YAY!! So my 1st post is going to be a review on the Pixiwoo course!
The night before the course I was soo nervous I had butterflies. I felt like a kid on Christmas eve and couldn’t get to sleep due to nerves excitement BUT I had nothing to worry about. The moment I walked in to the Pixiwoo studio I was greeted with a huge hug  from a very heavily pregnant Nik and her sister Sam. They were both so welcoming and put us all at ease within seconds.

The good thing about this course is that you don’t need any previous experience so there is a  good mix of people. I liked that there was a small group so it made a very intimate setting and we could all have a bit of one on one time with the sisters.
I learnt soooo much .We got taught all kind of things and picked up so many tips. We learnt Natural make up , Smokey eyes , period make up from all eras , high fashion, contouring , transvestite , icons... you name it we did it and it wasn’t like ok quick quick lets move on to the next thing it was very in-depth. On the last day we got to concentrate on what we thought we needed to work on and I did some bridal. It was my favourite day cos Nic and I worked together. She did one eye and I did the other! It was like a one on one personal lesson. I loved it and would recommend the course to anyone! They train us with high end designer products and let us use what we want. I was like a kid in a candy shop, I felt so spoilt I didn’t know what to use first!

Not only do you get an amazing learning experience but you gain friends for life. All the girls on the course I have kept in touch with! You get close because you all have the same interests! Sam and Nic are just the loveliest ladies and they will always be my friends and ICONS.
The Pixiwoo course is well worth doing. I don’t have anything negative to say, the only bad thing was having to go home at the end!
