The Mini Company ran a ‘make up’ seminar, run by the celebrity artist ‘Make-up by Hazel’. She is a Leaving Cert pupil, who came up from Limerick for the 2-hour demonstration. She is a very popular social media lady and provides great entertainment during her shows. The gig was attended by 30 pupils and broke even financially, as it lacked the publicity required to make it a ‘sell out’.
