Ladies, question for you: who taught you how to do your makeup? Did you figure it out as you went along? When was the last time you were taught any techniques by an expert? Deborah Williams is a Toronto-based makeup artist who is filling a huge gap in the market: makeup tips, instruction, and products made specifically for women over 50. (Because we all know that the products and techniques we used at 20 are not working at 50.) We are in love with Deborah's ethos of simple beauty that's all about bringing out your inner confidence and making you feel happy. Deborah recently published a book of makeup tips and instruction, and if your recipient is based in Toronto, you can arrange for a makeup lesson (which includes colour advice, brow analysis, product recommendations, full make-up application and step-by-step instructions) with Deborah at her Beaches studio.
