In February Gary Cockerill launched his first ever trade competition on Twitter! Following the successful launch of his Daytime to Playtime Pro lashes, Gary decided to give something back with a 3 hour one on one make-up master class in London!
To win, salon owners were required to purchase a Gary Cockerill professional lash stand and 40 packs of lashes to go with it, they would then be automatically entered into a prize draw.
The lucky winner Kerry Hayston owner of Solo Beauty in Whitehaven enjoyed a fantastic afternoon on the 11th April at Charles Fox in Covent Garden with Gary, learning the latest make-up tips and tricks! And doesn’t she look great after Gary did her make-up!
Here is a sneak peak in to how her day went:
“Hi Lara. I travelled down by train to London from Cumbria on the morning of the master class. I really didn’t know what to expect so the journey was full of excitement mixed with nerves as I was aware of Gary’s celebrity portfolio, which is quite extensive! Along with my friend who I brought along for moral support, I hot footed it across to Covent Garden and had some breakfast before heading over to Charles Fox!
I arrived around 10am and Gary arrived shortly after, we then went to one of the rooms to start the master class.
I was overwhelmed at how at ease Gary put me and how genuinely lovely he was, he took time to discuss the look he was going to do and suggested we do a day to night look going through the stages of foundation and contouring to the face and eyes, he also showed me his way of lash application. He gave me some invaluable tips along the way which I will be taking into my own salons and passing onto my own staff. (Once my make up was finished my friend and I went for lunch at Belgos in Covent Garden followed by a few wine bars – couldn’t miss the chance to show that amazing make-up off!!) The make-up was totally different to what I would normally go for but it has opened me up to using different colours on myself and my clients. It was a fantastic experience I didn’t want the day to end. I travelled back to Cumbria that evening and although a little tired it was the best experience ever, would love to do it all over again!
We are glad you had a fab time Kerry!
