Your Members Only Makeup Masterclass Series








You're totally fed up with being told that you need to "anti-age" everything. I'm mad about it too. Youth is not the only definition of beauty. We say to hell with the beauty industry's persistent intention to feed on the "fear of ageing", praying on women's insecurities rather than celebrating your amazingness. This is thankfully changing but we have a long way to go. And that my beautiful friends is why you are here. You are here to celebrate the privilege of ageing and looking magnificent at every age. In your Members Only Makeup Masterclass Series, The Shine Sessions, we will cut through the anti-aging BS, demystify the minefield of products, remove the overwhelm and anxiety that can grip you in the beauty departments, simplify the mass of confusion over what you need, what you don't need, and all the marketing fluff to deliver you, the BEST makeup class experience that has ever been for you mature skinned Beauties. Buckle up Beauties, this ground-breaking online makeup course will have you rocking your makeup like a Pro, and empowering you to rock on at every age.

"I can’t believe how much your course has changed my make up life - it was something I had no idea about and no confidence. But since your course, I just love trying new things out and seeing the results. "

Three months ago I was really feeling quite flat about aging and my makeup routine - my saggy crinkly eyes in particular  - but your course has helped me build my confidence again.""





1. What if I'm a bit younger than 40?

We are age inclusive and all are welcome, the tutorials and guides are best suited to women with mature skin.


2. Will I get access to Amanda?

Everyone will have access to Live Tutorials and Q&A sessions hosted by Amanda in a private Facebook Group. Membership to this Private Group is for Shine Sisters only. Amanda pops into the Private Facebook Group regularly to see how you're all going. And you can always schedule a Personal Beauty Consult for just $99 click here. You can remain in the Group for as long as you choose, beyond when your Shine Sessions Membership ends. A

3. I don't know if I have the right makeup and makeup brushes? 

The first tutorial in the online course is all about "Gearing Up". Amanda will run through with you a list of Essentials, much of which you will probably have in your makeup purse or drawers. And if you don't, Amanda will give you a list of recommended products, hand-picked to flatter and enhance mature skin. You can visit the online shop click here.

4. Can I do the course at my own pace, or do you have to attend the classes in synch?

We surveyed our customers to determine what you wanted. The outcome was most of you enjoy going at your own pace. So all of the video tutorials are available immediately on Joining. We recommend you start at Sessions 1.1 and work through each video as the knowledge builds on that learned in the previous video. Practice, take your time, practice some more. The beauty of this online course is that you don't get overwhelmed, you can watch each video as many times as you like, you can also practice along with Amanda. Watch, practice, then gather up your questions for the live Q&A and get live, real-time feedback from Amanda. You will have access to all of the Members Only content for 6 months, so plenty of time to watch, practice ... enjoy and then come back to whenever you need a "refresher".

5. How is this makeup course different to your Free Live Mini Makeup Classes?

The Shine Sessions masterclass series is very different to the live mini makeup classes. It is more focused on techniques, the "how to". Each topic area has several bite-sized video tutorials. Amanda takes more of a deep dive into each topic area, really breaking down the steps, so it's easy for you to follow and DIY. While the videos are short, the step by step approach is broken down slowly, making it easy to practice along, without all the interruptions of the live sessions. Plus everything is housed in one convenient location! No more digging around the interwebs, scrolling for hours looking for relevant, age-appropriate content.

6. I have really sensitive and problematic skin. Will this makeup course be okay for me?

Absolutely. While product recommendations are made, the goal of the course is to arm you with the skills to confidently do your own makeup, using the products you may already have and love. Amanda suggests a fabulous selection of clean makeup and skincare that has a focus on nurturing and nourishing mature skin.

7. Do I have to pay for the Makeup Course upfront or can I go on a Payment Plan?

There are two Payment Plan options. One is an upfront payment and the other is a payment plan, allowing you to "pay off" monthly over a 6 month period. Sorry, there are no refunds or cancellations.

8. I'm feeling nervous about taking an online course.

The benefit of taking the online course is that you don't get overwhelmed. We cover a lot of territory, loads of makeup insider tips and tricks broken down into bite-sized chunks that you can watch and rewatch while you practice. Often in an in-person environment there is a lot to take in, absorb and remember, and we all know we need to practice things several time before they become habitual.

9. I'm not very technologically skilled, so I'm worried the online technology will be too complicated or tricky. 

The videos are housed behind a password-protected area of my website. As long as you can create a password, you can drive the tech with this course! It has been intentionally kept very simple. Click play and you're away. Very simple navigation, clearly labelled "Next Lesson" and "Previous Lesson" buttons guide you through to the next or previous lessons. Easy clickable links to download CheatSheets that you can print, or open up on your device. And we are always here to help you. We have women aged 38 - 75 years old doing the course right now, without any challenges.


9. I think I'd prefer an in-person class with Amanda.

The truth is while COVID-19 is still an issue, it could shut a small business like mine down. It would just take one woman to come, unknowingly have COVID-19, and my whole kit would be condemned. This would be crippling for my small business. The silver-lining with online learning is the videos are filmed so you feel like I am in the room, just talking to you. They are short, simple, clearly explained, fun and easy to follow, and you can re-wind and re-watch while you practice, until you get the hang of that tip or skill. It's not hard, it really is just being shown the way, then practice, practice, practice. The beauty of me not being in the room with you, is the fact, you have to do the work yourself, I can't do it for you. And THAT is where the magic is.

10. Is the Free Shine Sessions Beauty Gift Box available to everyone?

We are sorry, but only those with an Australian residential address will be able to get the FREE Shine Sessions Beauty Gift Box.

11. Will everyone get a COMPLIMENTARY Personal beauty Consult with Amanda?

No, this Bonus was only available to those who purchased an Early Bird Ticket, prior to 18 November 2020.
