Many make-up counters offer tutorials, but few offer these for free without any pressure to buy. We love Bare Minerals make overs, they will do a full face of makeup and even apply your false lashes if you bring them with you. And the best bit is that their mineral make-up stays on for hours so you can party, and pose the night away and still look picture perfect.
