My Beauty Bootcamp Experience

Just over a week ago I was lucky enough to attend the All Ages Beauty & Hair course at Beauty Bootcamp on Upper Fitzwilliam St. When I left my house at 9 o'clock that morning I didn't really know what to expect from the day, but I ended up having such an amazing time. I like the idea of seeing how a certain look/style is done and trying to recreate it yourself, I really think it's the best way to learn. The Georgian building that Beauty Bootcamp is held in is absolutely beautiful and the rooms where the course takes place are big and spacious. On arrival I met the lovely Emma Jane who walked the group (10 in total) through different hair looks. My hair is a disaster at the moment after years of using the straightener so it was quite hard to get the styles to say put. During the 3 hours before lunch, we all learned the basics in blowdrying, curling and how to achieve a glamourous up do (I enjoyed this the most!). I also have my eye on the Remington Volumiser Hot Brush, come payday next week this will be mine. I could see myself using this alot instead of straightening my hair, as it adds that bit of volume and bounce which I really need. I decided on going for a fancy french twist, which the lovely Emma Jane kindly helped me with, I couldn't be happier at the way my hair turned out. All in all I really enjoyed learning a few tips on different hair styles. I don't tend to do too much with my hair in general but I found this super interesting. After lunch it was time for makeup, my favourite part. I know I do have a beauty blog but you can never have to many tips and tricks when it comes to makeup. All the beauty products were provided, all I needed to bring was my mascara and foundation which was optional as there was a great selection of foundations there. The super talented makeup artist, Leonard Daly showed us how to achieve a flawless foundation with a smokey eye, step by step which I found great. I always apply my foundation with a brush and after listening to Leonard for the three hours, I may be converted to using my fingers. It may not be the quickest compared to brush application, but you end up using so much less product in the process which is a plus if you own a rather expensive foundation. My favourite part was when we learned how to contour as it wouldn't be something I do enough. Another product I must buy is the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate, I love everything about it including the packaging. I may be waiting a while though as this stuff isn't wallet friendly, but it's amazing for contouring and may indeed be a makeup bag must and these claims come after I tried it once. I don't contour enough and the different it makes is quite extraordinary, it looks like I have amazing cheekbones which I didn't think was possibly by just using one product. I loved the look I achieved at the end using minimal makeup but still getting a flawless finish, I kept my eyes quite simple with some browns and purples. I finished the look with my new favourite mascara Giorgio Armani Eye to Kill mascara*. My lashes look so long and full of volume after I use this, it doesn't clump or leave me with spidery lashes. I'm going to do a full review on this soon. At the course you also get given a booklet which shows easy step by steps to creating a makeup look which I found ever so helpful and it's great that I can refer back to it if I need to.

Here are some before and after pictures, I'm half asleep in the no makeup picture, along with my extremely frizzy hair that is almost impossible to work with in the mornings. Being the first no makeup picture on my blog, I wasn't sure if to put it up but I think it's a must with this post.

I really enjoyed my day at Beauty Bootcamp, I learnt so much in the space of a day. I'd love to book a course for my Mom and I before Christmas. It's something I know she'd really like to do herself as she loves learning new tips and tricks. If you want to check out some of the courses Beauty Bootcamp have to offer you can check out them out. The day course itself would be great for before a hens or even someones birthday party as you'd be all glammed up for the night ahead

Myself and my friend Clodagh attended the course recently and were very impressed with the course content, the teachers and the overall practicality of the course. We also loved the little treats and the glass of champagne .... a nice touch! I'd highly recommend the course to anyone interested in looking their best or stuck in a hair and make-up rut!! Tara.

Many, many thanks to your team for the most enjoyable day I have had in a very long time. Martina and Nicki started our day off, Martina related everything.

Really well, the techniques shown were really well explained and demonstrations was brill.

And needless to say the 3 hours learning about makeup passed much too quickly ( such an enjoyable time had) but regardless everything needed to get the perfect

Face with makeup was passed on. The tips and advice was excellent.

I was so o impressed with the camp, it was so well organized and the girls were lovely, friendly and the atmosphere was delightful.

Thank you so much for giving me a great day out.

Many, Many thanks.

Regards claire

Myself and 8 friends attended the course on April the 10th for a girlie college reunion.Have to say beauty boot camp exceeded all our expectations. It was such a professional set up and we all really benefited from the expertise at the hair and make up classes. I'd like to say a big thanks to Liz,Martina, Jill and Nicola for a fantastic girlie day of fun.Everyone looked fab and camera ready for a night out on the town plus we all learned loads of tips and tricks that are manageable to do at home without any help!I'v been telling all my other friends and showing them the proof in pictures!For anyone thinking about going or organising a get together amongst friends, beauty boot camp is a must!!Thanks again.

My sister and I recently attended your course. We both loved it and picked up so many handy hints and tips. My sister is a real toyboy but since she did your course she has been making a real effort and looks fabulous! I have never seen her so confident and that's all down to you guys. I have recommended the course to all my friends, it really was great and such good value for money! Thanks for everything, Jen

Hi Liz,

Was just going to e-mail you when I noticed your message. We had an absolutely fantastic w/end. Every single girl in the group (including myself) were so impressed with Beauty Bootcamp. I just dont know where to begin! We found the venue no problem. The map on the website is really good. It was a bit of a struggle to get everyone there on time! But when we arrived, Nicola and the girls were so nice to us and we'd tea & coffee before it all took off. We had such good fun. It was educational but yet enjoyable at the same time. The photos of the hair lessons are so funny, especially the lesson in backcombing! I would have never in my whole life have backcombed my own hair but after last Sat I would be fairly confident in doing so! I was so happy with the way my own hair turned out. Martina did a fantastic upstyle for me in FIVE MINUTES. She is a genius! Lunch was fantastic. There was loads of food & champagne of course! The girls did a great job organising it for us. The make-up class was so interesting. We all learned loads! My make-up will be flawless from now on!

Everybody looked fantastic leaving Beauty Bootcamp. One of the girls has very fine hair, just to below her ears. Wow, did her hair look amazing! Martina did such a wonderful upstyle which made her hair look so full of body.

I will definitely be recommending Beauty Bootcamp to everyone I can think of. It was such a good day & the price is so reasonable considering all we got from the day.

Thanks again, I would have e-mailed you on Monday but I've a terrible flu. Must be all of the partying over the w/end!!

Great course and lots of craic, well worthwhile. Martina and Jill really know their stuff!
Might have just been our group, but an additional professional on-hand while we were putting the demonstrated techniques into practise, would have helped us a lot. One professional for a group of 8-10 was a bit stretched.
Thanks for all the great tips. I feel more confident about trying out new styles and looks.

Thanks for a fab day on Saturday, really enjoyable, great fun! I went with three other friends (we made a day and night of it!) Learnt loads! Would be great to have one expert per group of four, rather than one group of eight. Also might be an idea to consider providing some samples of the products recommended? Overall a fantastic day - now to try and put into practice what I learnt!!

Thanks a million girls for a great day. We went to beauty bootcamp for hens party and to get some ideas for my wedding in Spain. We all learnt so much about how to apply our make-up, a big thanks to Clare for sharing her expertise with us in such a pleasant and easy to follow manner. Martina then took over for the hair session in the afternoon, we all emerged with the know how to create the styles that we've admired in magazines but had no idea how to go about ourselves! Thanks to Liz for all her tips and the personal attention - we loved the hair pieces! We would highly recommend Boot camp to all our friends. Best regards, Louise & Hens!

It's Niamh Maloney here. We met at beauty bootcamp yesterday. Thank you for an very inspiring and fun class. I enjoyed it immensely, I'm in the process of dumping all my current make-up and replacing it based on your advise yesterday! The day in general was really excellent.

Hi I meant to email you ages ago to say that I got a lot out of the course last year. My make up routine had really gone down the tubes and your course really kick started me. What I liked was that you weren't trying to sell me anything but recommended everything from mass market cosmetics to the more expensive brands. I've invested in some great products but haven't spent a fortune and I really got some excellent tips from you. I've developed a lot more confidence in my make up routine since doing the course. I really enjoy putting on my make up every day now!!
Kind regards,

A top class girlie day out!! Liz and all the team are professionals who really know their stuff and you'll pick up some really useful tips & tricks. This isn't a personal make-over but a class where you learn how to do it yourself. I fully recommend this as a unique bonding fun day out ! Enjoy

Course content very good, make up was well worth doing, got loads of tips and guidance, have to agree lighting was not great, hair good too, better for people with long hair though, found girl in charge of overall very abrupt, but would still recommend the day out

Comment by: Nadia Mc Sorley

14 March 2008 - 09:45:30

I attended on 08th March - I thought the makeup was very good but the lighting in the room was very poor and it affected the results you were getting when applying make-up on yourself. The hair session was also good and we were given plenty of tips!!
We did have a fun day as a group maybe one other thing that could be changed is getting lunch brought in so you can chill out with your friends for an hour as where we where sent was closed and we ended up wasting 15mins or so of our hour looking for somewhere to eat!!
