I had the pleasure of attending one of my best friend's first ever Beauty Atelier this past weekend. I'm sure you're wondering what a Beauty Atelier entails. Well, this particular atelier was where Elizabeth, our makeup professional, used two models to teach a room full of ladies two simple makeup looks. Guests were treated to snacks, gift bags and a few hours of makeup fun. (Details about the delicious treats and event setup at the end of the post)
Before getting into the event itself, a little about our makeup artist. Elizabeth has been in the makeup industry for over 10 years. She started out her career working with MAC and has since gone off on her own. She has been involved in many beauty shoots throughout the city of Montreal and also offers bridal and day to day makeup from her studio or even better, she'll come right to you! Don't have time to head over to her or you want to create some of her looks on your own? Check out her online tutorials to get step by steps on how to replicate her looks!
Now, onto the good stuff. Attendees of the atelier were taught two different makeup looks, a 5 minute morning routine, and a full on glam look. Elizabeth made it easy for the attendees to follow along, take notes and ask tons of questions. As someone who is not super makeup savvy (I have one look and I stick to it) her tutorials gave me a ton of new tips and tricks to try out at home. I'm not fully there yet, but I may even try a full contouring look after having watched a step by step at the event.

Don't fret, if you missed the first atelier, there may be more in the future. Head over to Elizabeth's social pages so that you don't miss the next one!
