Sam Fine in London: Part 1 of 3 The Masterclass

OMG! OMG! OMG! I met Sam Fine!!! (OK pull it together Stella we need share story)
Here goes…
If you have been reading this blog, you probably already know that I’m a huge Sam Fine fan. You know how Usher says Michael Jackson was his inspiration? Well, Sam is my inspiration and I aspire to be as good as he is  😉 so watch this space!
The event tagged “The beauty of Make up Experience with Sam Fine” was organized by Mink and sponsored by Illamasqua, Ellis Faas and Iman. They put together a master class and seminar on the 3rd and 4th of December with Sam Fine and I was fortunate enough to attend both events.
The Master Class:
The master class took place on the 3rd of December at the Illumasqua store on Beak Street in London. It was an intimate group of about 14 make up artists and artists in training. Sam (yes Sam, we are on first name bases now LOL) was there with his friend/model Marie (you should recognize her from his book). 
Marie and I
The class started with Sam doing a demo on Marie, tweezing and bleaching brows, matching foundation, contour, highlight… the works. We got to ask and were asked questions all the way through and that made for fun, educative discussions. 
The class, or at least some us 🙂
After a brief lunch break, it was time to practice our new skills on models. We had an hour to do this and Sam went round the class correcting us and making suggestions for improvement. After the exercise he gave us  feed back on what he’d noticed we did right or wrong and how we could improve. At the end of the class we all got certificates signed by Sam Fine and took tons of pictures with him.

Just when I though things could’t get any better, he announced that he would be giving a gift to the person that came the farthest to see him…ME! Coming from Paris I had come the farthest so he gave me a copy of  his DVD Basics of beauty and he signed it too!!! I know you are probably wondering “doesn’t she already have one?” Yes I do, but this one was signed specially for me!

Needless to say I had an awesome time.
