So, a while back I was cordially invited to attend  introductory training course on an international makeup brand - MUD, organised by Roseberry (Valletta).

"For more than 15 years Make-up Designory (MUD) has worked to establish itself as America's premier school of make-up artistry. With schools and stores in Los Angeles, New York, international partners and Studios, MUD continues to build a loyal and dedicated customer-base of students and artists."
"Each year, Make-up Designory (MUD) schools strain hundreds of students from around the globe in a variety of make-up specialities. From day one, students are immersed in the fundamentals of make-up artistry with aspirations of working the fashion, entertainment or retail cosmetic industries."

An introductory training course by the European School Director of Make-up Designory Ms. Elizaveta Kudryashova, who has graduated from MUD Fashion Make-up Artistry programme. She is working as a make-up artist and school director in 3rd MUD branch, Make-up Designory Europe located in Ljubljana, Slovenia. While studying, Elizaveta, originally a Russian citizen, decided to join the MUD team.

During this training course, Elizaveta was discussing with us how the story of MUD began and how people and makeup artists kept wanting specific products which they couldn't find on the market. Having almost no idea (I have heard some mentions of MUD on YouTube) of what MUD consisted of, I was really interested to know more of it. She showed us an endless amount of ways of how you can make up liquid liners from the all the eyeshadows available, so, you do not really need to buy separate eyeliners. Elizaveta also demonstrated how one can make the foundation lighter or heavier. During the course she shared with us some of her amazing tips and tricks and she also shared with us some backstage moments.

In the end we were discussing about the possibility of organising future courses in collaboration with Roseberry Malta. For more information kindly visit the Roseberry Facebook Page. Also, MUD can be purchased from Roseberry in Valletta. I strongly suggest you go and have a look at their products which I might say are a bit pricey, but to be honest it is always best to invest in good and high quality professional makeup.
