One on One Makeup Lessons Sydney

Are you overwhelmed and have no idea where to start when doing your own makeup?

Are you a beauty enthusiast who would like more in depth learning than You-tube allows?

Then a one on one makeup lesson with Gemma is for you.

From essential skincare routines to colour matching foundation, blush and contouring, product choices and much more – you will walk away feeling confident applying your own makeup and understanding which products and colours are right for you.

The Experience

One-on-one makeup lessons with Gemma are held at her home studio in Potts Point, Sydney.

Together with Gem, you complete your makeup look from start to finish. She teaches you what products to use and how best to apply them. Gem does half your face whilst you do the other half so you can practice and replicate the techniques to master your application.

We do not represent specific brands and so your lesson is not sales or brand focused. You can trust that Gem will give you unbiased advice when it comes to the right products for you.

You leave the studio with a five-page document of notes, to help you refresh your knowledge at home. You also receive a digital face chart which breaks down your makeup look and includes a list of products used. Gemma encourages you to bring along your own makeup bag so that she can build on your current routine and suggest improvements or tips.


Our two hour private makeup lessons include the completion of a natural, polished look designed to compliment your features.


Our three hour private makeup lessons are for those wanting to master both a day and evening look. It’s gives you more time to play around with makeup and ask lots of questions.


One on one makeup lessons in Sydney are available Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 9am-6pm.

These lessons are strictly for one person to give Gemma the opportunity to pay individual attention to each persons needs. If you would like a group lesson then please scroll down the page for more information.

A makeup lesson is a great gift idea for a friend or loved one – get in contact with us to secure a gift voucher today.

Group makeup lessons Sydney

Master the tricks of the trade and have an experience to remember, book in for a group lesson with Gemma Nichols Hair and Makeup Artistry. The perfect girls day out, hen’s party or indulgence for friends, our lessons give you insiders knowledge to the world of makeup.


Our group makeup lessons are held in your own home (Sydney only) and hosted by our senior makeup artist, Jen. She not only ensures that everyone walks away more confident in their skills, but also that everyone in the group has a great day.

The group makeup class begins with a presentation about general tips, our favourite products and tools of the trade. Jen does a demonstration on one of the students in the group and then everyone gets the chance to practice on themselves. Plenty of feedback and question time is incorporated into each lesson.

When you leave, everyone in the group receives a document to assist them in applying the skills learnt in their everyday routine. You are encouraged to bring along your own makeup bags so that Jen can give specific tips for day-to-day makeup application.

What our clients say:

“Thank you so much for all your help with teaching my sister and me to apply makeup.  We now feel so much more confident with the different products to use and how to apply them.  It was great how you tailored the makeup for each of us and didn’t have a standard look that had to be applied to us both.”


Group classes are available on Friday’s and Saturday’s.

Group classes run for three hours, in your home. Ensure that the location chosen has a large dining table and plenty of comfortable chairs. Jen provides the mirrors and the makeup.


A group class is priced at $400 and there is a maximum of six people to ensure individual feedback can be given. Larger groups can be catered for at a cost of $70pp as additional time is needed to ensure everyone gets time for questions and feedback. Travel fees apply, contact us for details.
