ReThink Fashion 2023

Make the Most of Your Makeup Bag

23 April 2023, 10:00pm - 12:00pm

Alice Ellen Cooper Dean Community Space
Have you got a bag full of make-up that you don’t use? Do you keep buying new bits with no idea what to do with them? Local make-up artist Kirsten Sare is an expert in natural make-up and has years of experience working in TV, film, and with private clients. She will share hints, tips, and demos to help you learn new skills and make the most of the makeup you already have!
Kirsten’s lessons and workshops have always been on the premise of ‘bring your own makeup’ so you can repurpose…why buy more when you could possibly use what you already have/need.
