I'm not, or at least wasn't a makeup kind of girl. I'd always had clear skin growing up and didn't feel makeup was a necessary expense. That was until I got adult acne.

Exploring makeup for the first time in my thirties was a daunting experience, I didn't even know where to begin. After some googling I decided to book myself a makeup lesson with MAC. I was quite apprehensive but the experience was just what I needed.

The lesson lasted an hour and cost £50, the cost of the lesson could then be used as a discount on MAC products. The makeup artist I was assigned turned out to be the store's deputy manager and she was lovely. I explained that I was just after a way to cover up the red pigmentation on my skin and to get a bit of confidence back. Having never really applied makeup before, she showed me step by step from moisturising right through to mascara with great patience.

By the end of the lesson I felt that my fear of looking like a clown was entirely unfounded! There was no hard sell on product, but I went home with a small selection of the basics and a smile on my face. Oh and the boyfriend took me out for dinner, because it would be a shame to waste all that hard work :)
