Mum and I headed to Meggie’s in Stow-on-the-wold for a special Summer/Spring Makeup Masterclass held by Maddie from Wedding Paint. Since we actually attended this workshop, I’ve had soo many computer issues that you wouldn’t believe me if I told you! But I am pleased to finally get this post up. 🙂
What hadn’t quite clicked into place was the fact I had indeed visited Meggie’s before, but when Meg was based in Painswick. We visited the Falcon for a Sunday Roast last year and dropped by her shop. Meg is one-half of the excellent Cotswold blog, Millie and Meg and whilst Meg is the powerhouse behind Meggie’s and Mini Meggie’s, Millie recently opened the Coach Coffee House just a few doors down – we’ll be back to Stow to check that out soon. Meg’s shop has loads to discover, including a whole raft of very instagrammable stationery.
With a glass of fizz in hand, we settled down for Maddie’s demonstration. The Little Cotswold Kitchen also provided some delicious vanilla rose cupcakes for the occasion and Sarah, fellow blogger from Lewis Loves, volunteered to be our model.
Quite frankly, Maddie has so much sass it’s infectious. She honed her craft as a Bobbie Brown makeup artist and was a regular artist at London Fashion Week and catwalk shows. Maddie has alopecia and she knows how war paint can make the difference in our self-belief and believes in helping her clients be the best version of themselves – discovering their individual glow – something I am totally up for.
With the big W-day in mind this December, brushing up my makeup routine has been at the top of the list. And what was the one piece of key advice that I left with – moisturise! Maddie’s a true believer in disregarding those fads – don’t rely on these faddy primers, a great skincare regime is a foundation to any good makeup routine, moisturised skin will help keep foundation in place all day. With that in mind, I invested in the Móa range that Meg sells and swears by as the answer to all your skin woes. It’s my new cleansing resolution – moisturise heavily and drink more water.
