ABOUT YOUR TUTOR
Michelle has been making her own cosmetics for many years, born out of frustration in seeking a safe, all natural and affordable option. Having allergies to many commercial preparations, making her own became the best solution, and a lot of fun! She now makes all her own products for home use and is due to launch her own brand of cosmetics in 2017!
