Davinia's divine make-up school

You may not know the name Davinia Fermi (lovely and unusual as it is) - but we think you should.  For a time, Davinia was based near Jo in Hastings, where she not only did our make-up FAH-BU-LOUSLY for shoots (and we are very, very picky - been known to scrub it off again, in fact).  Davinia also taught make-up skills to small groups there at her Make-up Masterclasses - but she's now moved on to much grander things, and we're delighted to tell you about her new Make-up Academy for professionals, based in a sensational Georgian house - Stanmer House - near Brighton.  She's a super-experienced make-up pro who's worked on films, magazine shoots (think:  Tatler, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar etc.), music tours and more - and she's now represented by uberagent Joy Goodman, which tells you everything.  These courses really are for professionals and those who are looking to make-up as a career - for instance, Fashion, Media and TV Make-up and Hair (a 5-week course), or Evening High Fashion Make-up - for full info, we suggest you visit Davinia's website, below.  (That's her in the middle, above, by the way.)

The only annoying thing?  Now Davinia's so successful, we're not sure she'll have time to do our faces, any more...!

PS  If you'd be interested in a Beauty Bible Make-up Masterclass with Davinia, click here and send us an e-mail.  If enough of you think this is a good idea, we'll look at setting one up with her.
