Much like 3D-illusions and fluorescent kaleidoscopes, incorrectly applied makeup and haystack hair can have an unsettling effect on the peepers. Unfortunately, unlike riding a bike or doing basic algebra, correctly applying makeup isn’t a skill that most are born with.

Though it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to teach you how to apply mascara with your mouth closed, the highly trained beauty tech in charge of the course can teach you pretty much everything else. An exclusive training facility, Cape Town Beauty Academy prides itself on helping small groups of students to develop their own personal hair and makeup style, and learn to beautify themselves the right way; because they know that the more you know, the less you need. Led by an international makeup artist, you’ll be guided through a complete and simple system of styling that you’ll be able to mix and match with your own personal brand of panache.Snacks and a glass of bubbly will get you in the right mood for a bit of hard-core learning, and if you plan on hitting the metaphorical books for the full-day course, you’ll be provided with lunch to ensure you’ve got sufficient sustenance to take everything in. After the full-day course, you’ll also be able to kick back and give yourself a relaxing pat on the back while you enjoy the facilities that the Academy has to offer, whether it’s in the Jacuzzi or out on the deck. Once you’re boned up on your beauty basics, you’ll walk away with a certificate to frame, stick on the fridge or just use as boasting material.
