Inglot opened the doors of its very first pro store here in Ireland on the 28th of September. A queue of over a hundred people were eagerly awaiting their first glimpse inside the gorgeous new store.
I finally got to pop in this week for their VIP evening and got to see what all the fuss was about!
The store is laid out immaculately with amazing make up displays everywhere you turn. There is also an upstairs where they will be holding master classes and make up lessons. The staff are all talented artists who are there to help guide you through the Inglot Freedom System if you are an Inglot newbie and also available for makeovers and make up lessons. i have always found that the make up artists working for Inglot are always extremely talented and passionate about makeup.
To celebrate the launch of the Pro Store, top International Make Up Artist Jon Hennessey has been flown in from Vancouver Canada to meet customers and M.U.A's at a number of masterclasses. Jon Hennessey is regarded as one of the best international make up artists and educators. His work has been seen in the pages of Elle, In Style and Marie Claire to name but a few. Clients have included Alicia Keyes, Helena Christensen, Kim Catrall and Lily Allen. He has also collaborated with top design houses such as Alexander Mc Queen, Vivienne Westwood, Vera Wang and Matthew Williamson.
Can you imagine my excitement when I was asked to be his model for his masterclass.
Jon did an amazing cranberry eye on my and started with a nude lip then built it up to a full strong eye and lip. I learnt so much from him in such a short space of time and felt so inspired after the masterclass. If I could pass on anything I learnt it would be to use your canvas to its full potential and work with what you have. Be as light handed as you can and avoid using too much product.
Here is a before and after shot of me wearing no make up and then after Jon worked his make up magic on me.
The amazing Pro Store will also has products exclusive to South Anne St. such as Inglot’s exciting new range of Sport/ Studio Powders, Professional Zuca Make Up Case, Portable Lighted Make Up Station, Facial Toners and 42 Piece Brush Set.
The Upstairs studio will be used for courses, masterclasses and as private area for makeovers.
