First Masterclass of 2019! Join us in Guelph on Sunday, January 27th for a full day of cosmetic science, all about color cosmetic products! In this session, we’ll explore all the basics you’ll need to know to make your own make-up. Topics will include a review of color additives in cosmetics, regulations for colors, and how to effectively use colorants, plus other important considerations such as preservation. Throughout the session, you’ll get to make the following products (made by you, custom to you and take home): eyeshadow, lipstick, mascara, and liquid foundation. We’ll be working with EcoCert approved natural and vegan ingredients, as well as Iron Oxides and Mica (optional), although we’ll cover the full spectrum of ingredients you can work with for these product types.
