Eco-Glitter Makeup Class with Umber Ghauri

2 June 2019
4:30 pm
6:00 pm

Professional Makeup Activist Umber Ghauri returns to ONCA for a eco-friendly makeup class!

In this makeup demonstration and practice session, Umber Ghauri will be giving you an introduction to their art practice as a makeup artist serving LGBTQ+ people and People of Colour. In this 90 minute session you will learn how to contour, highlight, correct and experiment with eco friendly glitter as Umber gives you answers to all your burning makeup questions and shows you first hand how they create a striking, glittery look.

Umber aims to use makeup as a tool for liberation, safety and creativity for all. ONCA and Umber are teaming up to show you not just how to feel good but how to do so without harming our environment, you can get involved by securing your ticket now!


We are excited to announce that Revolution Beauty & Headblush Glitta will be providing makeup and eco-glitter for you to use and take home with you so your exploration doesn’t end when the class does.



Umber Ghauri is a makeup artist, writer, model and public speaker. With a passion for celebrating marginalised identities, Umber began their journey with a degree from The Courtauld Institute of Art, quickly moving onto a makeup training course. Combining an understanding of historical and current representation within art and media, Umber realised the role of makeup artist was one of great responsibility where LGBTQ people, disabled people and PoC are underserved. Umber believes that we should all experience our beauty in a positive environment, where we have control over how we look and how we are treated.
