After melting down the basic ingredients (wax and oils), we were each given a ration of the base in a glass with a stir stick. The real fun started as we mixed various mica pigments and flavours to create truly personalized colours!
We all crowded around the mirror testing colours and sharing tips to achieve that perfect match for our skin tone with guidance from Melanie every step of the way. I combined various pigments to create two colours just for me – a bronzed berry shade with chocolate/raspberry flavouring and a soft coral pink with chocolate/mint flavouring – they’re beautiful and DaLish-ious! As a bonus, we each got to choose one of our classmates colours to take home too! A little wax goes a long way and I can wear these on my cheeks too!
Whenever I daydreamed about making my own makeup, I always pictured this big, messy production with unattainable commercial ingredients, but DaLish classes keep it simple, natural, affordable and fun! It was a fabulous Tuesday evening with five great gals and totally worth the $35 price tag considering I’d easily spend more than that on three products at Sephora minus the food and fun! Here are a few more photos:
Sign up for the DaLish Newsletter or follow on Twitter for updates on future events and classes. You can even book DaLish for private occasions like birthdays, bridal showers, bachelorette parties or just as the prelude to a girl’s night out! Imagine making your own hot red lipstick before a night on the town with your best gals – fun! I’m already thinking of events I can bring Melanie to…
Thanks again Melanie and DaLish Cosmetics for hosting such a wonderful evening and for giving me the tools to make that perfect lip colour. I’ve been using these balms religiously ever since…I think it’s time to ditch the dusty lip gloss drawer
It was great meeting you Sarah, Jasmine and Susana – I hope you’re loving your creations as much as I am and I’m sure I’ll be seeing you at future DaLish events! xoxo
