Frequently Asked Questions
How much makeup should I be wearing when I arrive?
It’s really up to you how much makeup you want to have on when you arrive. You are welcome to dare to go bare or arrive with your basic foundation in place, or even more if you prefer. Each event is labeled with our suggestion of how much makeup to wear upon arrival.
How will I know which event is right for me?
We offer quite an array of different makeup themes. Some ladies are looking to learn specific techniques such as contouring or that elusive smoky eye. Others want to know how to transform from day to night with ease - and others are simply looking for different looks to add to the repertoire.
Do I bring my own makeup?
Yes. Please do bring your basics - items that you use everyday and carry in your makeup bag. The best part of our events is that you get to learn how to use your own makeup and not just experience makeup that you may never use again or be able to find on your own. Your instructor will also have her full professional kit of makeup for any tips and touch-ups that she can add onto your look.
Do I bring my own Brushes and Applicators?
Each event has a description of the items we suggest you bring with you and the essentials we provide and gift to you. Not all events require brushes - if brushes are required for the particular event you have chosen we will provide brand new brushes for your use throughout the evening and are yours to keep. For the "Flawless Foundation" event we provide a brand new, full size BEAUTY BLENDER - the results are amazing and far superior to any brush.
How will I see my face at the bar or restaurant?
No need to worry. The table settings will have lit mirrors on them, provided by your Instructor - these mirrors are portable and adjustable.
Can I drink during the event?
Blush with your blush? Of course! Part of the fun of Makeup Tonight is the opportunity to mix and mingle with other great ladies and enjoy a drink in the process.
Can I come with friends?
Definitely! Makeup Tonight is a super fun experience whether you are alone or with friends. If you go alone we certainly encourage mingling with the other ladies in attendance and networking is fun in groups too - you never know who you might meet!
What if I am running late or can’t make the event, how can I reschedule?
If you are running late, simply call or email us and we will let your Instructor know. If you need to reschedule let us know, preferably within 24 hours of your scheduled event.
Will I be asked to register for anything at the event or pressured into buying makeup?
Absolutely not! There is nothing for sale at our events, no sales pressure, just learning and fun!
What if I make a mistake with my makeup and need to correct it?
No need to worry. Practice makes perfect! There will be plenty of cotton balls, makeup remover and tissues on hand. You can take care of removal yourself or ask your Instructor to help you with this.
How long does each event last?
Typically each event lasts about two hours from check in time to finish. Attendees check in at 7:30pm and we generally finish up by about 9:00pm.
Will I be photographed or filmed for any print or promo editorials?
Absolutely not. No one will be filmed or photographed at any time. You are welcome of course to take selfies of your fabulous new looks!
How do I pay or register for my event and are there any membership fees?
There are no membership fees. Simply select your city and scroll down for available events and themes. When you see an event you would like to attend - select 'Order Now'. Payment is not accepted at the venue - all registrations must be done online through our website.
How many ladies typically attend?
We find smaller groups to be the most beneficial. Whilst we want you to meet lots of potential new friends, we still want everyone to be able to maximize time with their Instructor and limit the size of our events to 20 ladies.
What time should I arrive for the event?
Published start times are on our website and will also be given to you in your email confirmation. We aim to wait for everyone to arrive, but we don’t want to keep the whole group waiting. If you are running late, that is fine - we will get you set up as soon as you arrive.
How do I reserve my space/register for an event?
Registering is quick and easy! Simply select your city and scroll down for the list of events. The website will guide you through registering for yourself. If you want to register to go with friends also, simply change the number in the “quantity” box to reflect how many seats you need.
