If you’ve been following me on my Instagram you would have seen that I just recently attended the infamous Masterclass by Mario Dedivanovic in London.
I have waited for this day to come for what feels like a lifetime!
So I got ready, packed all my stuff and headed to the location. (in the most posh UBER ever – thanks Sorin! ) When I arrived, I tought there were quite a few people waiting in line – until I saw how long the queue actually was.
That’s when I said to myself ‘well, you will not get a great seat after all’ since it was first come first serve. BUT: Everything was fine in the end! We were actually the luckier ones, since there were people who, for whatever reason, seemed to not find any seats. They might have overbooked the class or so, I don’t know.
When Mario came on stage everyone went crazy! Oh, how we waited for this moment to finally happen! He seemed very relaxed and excited to start his Masterclass.
The model he chose for his demo was undoubtably gorgeous and beautiful.
Before he started with the actual class he asked us to not film the entire thing and spoil all of his secrets shared during the class. Which of course makes sense. Nonetheless we were allowed to take pictures now and then or do a couple of snaps. So everything you see here is 100% legal!
Mario decided to show us his famous ‘Natural Red Carpet Glam’ makeup look.
Of course I’m not going to tell all his techniques since that’s the point of going to one of his materclasses, BUT I can say this much:
LAYERING IS KEY
During his demo he shared alot of insider tips not only on how he applies makeup but also how to be a successful makeup artist in general. I really appreciated his openness and the fact that he shared some of his story as well. His advice were merely on the technical/professional side, which I really liked and he really did take his time to answer all of our questions. (not that I would actually speak up, but you know what I mean…)
After a rather short lunch break the class continued and he finished the look. The model looked absolutely stunning! I mean look at her!Now for the juicy part…
Once the class was over they asked us to stay seated as they were setting up for the pictures. But because they were kind of behind schedule alot of people were getting stressed and hectic.
Long story short, we obviously could not all wait in line to take a picture and they tried to split us into groups which of course did not work as planned. It was getting a bit annoying as I felt like it was kind of unorganised. It would have been better if they just set up the ‘photo studio’ somewhere on your way out and you could take your picture right before you left the building.
Nonetheless, I managed to get my photo with Mario! (Please ignore the fact that I look like a total moron in this pic!)
When we left the building we received our certificate and the infamous GOODIE BAG! (Which was surprisingly heavy, and yes there will be a video where I reveal all the goodies in detail!)
The only thing I was disappointed about was that the certificate did not have my name on it. Please correct me if I’m wrong but I thought it said that a certificate of completion with your name on it is included in the price. Without it I feel like it is just a piece of paper anyone can have.
Of course its printed on a paper of good quality and has his signature on it but still. For me, I will now have to go to get my name printed on it which I think is a bit a bummer since you pay a good amount of money to participate the Masterclass.
Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience meeting Mario and learning his techniques. I met some beautiful ladies and it was awsometo be surrounded by people who love the same things as you do. I left London super inspired and motivated to keep on doing what I love most.
