Check out the feedback from our latest students!:

“I recently completed a 4 day one-on-one Professional Make Up Course at Belles & Brides. I found both the course and the tutors to be excellent. They were knowledgeable, friendly and definitely made sure I was confident and capable at the completion of the course. I was able to ask questions, try the prescribed looks (daytime, bridal, evening, smokey eye as well as red lip) and explore my own style with their beautiful make up – The Indee Cosmetics Range. I would definitely recommend anyone thinking of entering the world of Professional Make Up or wanting to learn how to apply their own make up to try a Belles and Brides course.” Debbie Eaton. (Private one-on-one 4 day makeup workshop).

“(The tutor was) totally amazeballs – very good with the explanations of each detailed process, spoke at a great pace, and was very approachable. Indee cosmetics is out the gate with the final finish and how it feels on skin. Fab facilites! It was a cram packed, fun 4 days and it was great for what it covered. The workshop went “over and beyond” my expectations overall. Don’t procrastinate, just do it – you won’t regret it!” Danielle Bell (4 Day Hamilton Professional Group Makeup Workshop, Hamilton, April 2019).

“I attended the recent Hamilton 4 Day Group Makeup Workshop. I am so pleased I enrolled. I learnt so much and really enjoyed it aswell. The tutors were fabulous and the course content covered everything I wanted to learn. The tutors were really friendly, easy going and they made me feel comfortable. I loved the products. I would highly recommend Belles & Brides! Enrol now :).” Amber Hutchison (4 Day Hamilton Professional Group Makeup Workshop, Hamilton April 2019).

“Completed the 4 Day Bridal/Special occasion makeup course at Belles and Brides. The course & the Tutor Levarna was excellent. Very Professional & Knowledgeable. I feel so much more confident and capable after completion and had so much fun! Absolutely in love with the Makeup Range – Indee cosmetics. Would absolutely recommend anyone who wants to become a Professional makeup artist, learn how to apply their own makeup or up-skill (like me) to enrol with Belles & Brides!!!” Michelle Olwagen (4 Day Professional Group Makeup Workshop, Tauranga, September 2019).

“Attended the Master your own make up 4 lesson course and LOVED it! Even as someone who was fairly confident with my make up before hand I still walked away with a wealth of knowledge and can honestly say it was worth every cent. Really easy to follow and understand what Levarna was teaching as she clearly demonstrated her extensive knowledge. We received a set of amazing Brushes and pages of notes to refer back to couldn’t be happier with how this went. Very sad when it was over.” Sammy Johnson (4 Week Master Your Own Makeup Evening Course, September 2019).

I recently attended the 4 day bridal make up course in Tauranga and I absolutely loved it! I loved the setting in the historic village and the theory and practical was very well organized. Also really nice to have the option of a payment plan so I was able to the do the course sooner than I had planned. Also the instructor Levarna was super helpful and friendly and was overall a fun course! Chelsea Burrows (4 Day Professional Group Makeup Workshop, Tauranga, September 2019).

“Thank you Belles & Brides for the awesome Monday course on doing your own makeup. I have picked up really valuable advice and enjoyed getting hands on to practice. Would recommend to all ladies to improve their make up skills. Many thanks to Levarna!” Korene Quigley (4 Week Master Your Own Makeup Day Course, Hamilton, September, 2019).

“So last week was a lot of fun. I participated in the 4-day bridal/special occasion make up workshop facilitated by the amazing Levarna who has a great wealth of knowledge in the industry. I highly recommend you take part in this course even if you are just a beginner or already doing make up professionally to learn the latest techniques.” Laarni Mercado (4 Day Hamilton Professional Group Makeup Workshop, Hamilton, October 2019).
