During this uncertain time of lockdown, digital connection has proved to be more important than ever. As we have sadly had to close the doors to the Academy for the time being, we have been looking at how we can continue to provide our top level training without being at Delamar. The message we have received from our community has been clear: provide online classes and live Q&As, open to everyone. As we all learn to adapt to technology in our homes, it seems that Zoom meetings and virtual catch ups with friends will be our new ’normal’ for the foreseeable future.
So we are excited to be providing some live tutorials with our top tutors over the next week, in which they will be bringing their skills and experience to you, completely free of charge, bar the final one on Friday. This will be via Zoom, so if you do not have it yet, you will need to sign up for free. Our special masterclass with Hannah Martin on Friday will be ticketed at an affordable price of £15 and half of ticket sales will be donated to the NHS. The NHS are doing such an incredible job during this pandemic and we wanted to give some support.
Please see the schedule for next week below and let us know if you have any ideas for future masterclasses you would love to see – we will try to make it happen! Either contact us via Instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hannah will show you industry standard application of a classic bridal make-up on herself, for you to do on yourself, during the masterclass. You will need to have a Zoom account to enjoy this masterclass. Please use whatever make-up/tools you have to hand. We ask everyone who participates to upload a selfie to IG with the hashtag #HannahMartinTaughtMe and Hannah will feature her favourite looks on her own platform (as will we, Delamar Academy). This is a fun and educational online masterclass with a good cause. We are donating 50% of ticket sales to the NHS.
Once you have bought your ticket, we will email you a Zoom link shortly before the event.
