Makeup is not just for the young Kylie Jenner types but also for us more mature women, who don’t wish to be ‘mutton looking like lambs’; let alone looking like a night for Halloween. We still wish to enhance our beauty but might be, more shy about trying those wide range of palettes in public.
This new app BEYOU is a functional app that allows you to have your own personal makeup artist come to your home, work place or anywhere within the UK, to help you create either the model look, natural look, or the I just stepped out on to the red carpet look. It also allows you to try out, those more outrageous colours in privacy, where you’re not being gawped at.
Charlotte Green, founder and CEO of BEYOU launched in London 2018. BEYOU is now being rolled out across the UK and also Ibiza too, going international.
The beauty of this app, it allows you to select a make-up artist that best suits you, according to their filter tips: by price range, ratings, closest to you or county.
You create a personal profile, giving your basic details and any skin issues you may have, so the makeup artist can know in advance and can discuss this further with you, once you’ve made your booking.
Once you have registered you have a few choices as to how you can proceed. You can request a quote by completing the scheduled appointment card. A personalised makeup session lasts approximately 60 minutes. Ensure you provide the date, time choice of inspiration; BEYOU Beautiful (that’s a natural look) right through to the ravishing revenge look. You can opt to include eyelashes, as well as book for a small or large group of you and your friends. Note, if having a group session, you will be charged per person, according to your set budget. Budgets can start from as little as £35 ranging through to £125. The second way to book is to view the selection of artists on the app via their ratings and bio which will include their level of experience. Once you’ve found someone that fits your bill, you’ll be taken to ‘request a booking’, here you go into more detail as to what it is you require. All bookings and payments are made through BEYOU, who are the booking agent for the makeup artists.
All the BEYOU artists either come through recommendations or through ones they have personally scouted during visits to department/ makeup stores. The BEYOU team ensure their artists all have insurance and adhere to the BEYOU terms and conditions.
Having tried the app myself, it’s very easy to use and the BEYOU team are constantly keeping you up to date once you’ve made a booking.
I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with the level of service provided by the BEYOU makeup artist Holly G. She was highly professional bringing her own equipment but happy to use my own makeup if I preferred. She kept to the brief I gave, which was to try and keep the look as natural as possible but make it transferable from day to a night time look. Holly G was very good at explaining her exact process, whilst applying to make me feel comfortable, as well as providing makeup tips, because I’m useless LOL.
What I like about the app, is that you can have a make-over in the comfort of your home, at a price you can afford, on a day that is convenient to you and you can have multiple friends join you. BEYOU makeup artists also cater to all different skin types and tones, which is essential if you have any allergies or differing shades. For I was made aware by Holly G (makeup artist) that I have 3 different skin tones, so one shade was not suitable for the entire coverage, to give me that natural look, it had to be blended with other palettes.
This is definitely a service I would recommend and use again, especially to have an evening with the girls or to have a makeup tutorial.
Thanks to the BEYOU team for helping me to accentuate my natural beauty.
