What you'll do

Who doesn't love to get pampered with Italian wine and aperitivo!?

- We will discover and explore the famous historical wine windows.
- Then, we will head off to my studio and start the party with some local Italian wines and snacks.
- After the wine and snacks, you can choose an easy, quick, and fun session of your choice of “that new year glow,” "glitzy smoky eye," “perfect brows," or “Champaign party lips".
- A fun lipstick colour will be paired with your favourite selection of wine to be applied on at the end of the night.

As a solo traveler it was a perfect way to feel like I had friends in Florence. The group was really great and I honestly wish I could have done this earlier in the trip to meet up with everyone again. I highly recommend this experience!

I've been to plenty of Airbnb Experiences and there are around 4 that I can count with my hands that are PHENOMENAL...one of them would be Layla's "Lipstick and Wine" experience for the following reasons: 1. BEAUTIFUL, SMART AND ENTERTAINING: Layla is a gorgeous person who followed the unimaginable dream of living in a gorgeous city filled and doing what she loves the most : Making people feel beautiful with her expert make up expertise. Due to this, she shows a lot of joy in what she does and this makes all the guests feel special, comfortable and very much a part of her friendship circle. She is laid-back, humorous, generous and at the same time, a professional. She shared wonderful stories about how she started up here in Florence and all the wonderful sites around her studio. 2. MAKING NEW FRIENDS: The group that I joined was phenomenal - all single, driven and well-travelled ladies who had great senses of humour so we all clicked really well. It actually felt just like a friends' night in with wine, snacks and great conversation at Layla's house. For some reason, it felt like I had hung out with these ladies before in another lifetime and so the conversations were a lot of fun. We ended up at a bar with one free cocktail (part of the experience) and continued on so more! 3. LEARNING SOMETHING NEW: I love beauty and fashion but I felt like I learned some new things from Layla. I find her expertise and experience with working with numerous celebrities for 7 years in media, tv and movies made the experience worthwhile in learning something new about beauty.

This was such a fun experience! As a solo traveler, Layla made me feel right at home from the very beginning! She really is an expert with makeup and I learned a ton, while laughing and have fun conversation! She even went WAY out of her way to help me with a lost luggage situation. I would highly recommend this for anyone — friends or solo travelers!

My evening of makeup with Layla was a really nice experience. She welcomed us into her home with snacks and wine. She has a background in the makeup industry and was a good teacher. It was lighthearted and fun to have a professional give you a tutorial and she tailored it to each person. After the makeup session we went to a quaint, local place for a drink. It was a lovely evening!

I loved the experience with Layla! I am and will be using the makeup techniques that she shared with me. She made this delicious snack platter and we had champagne and wine! It was a very unique and fun experience. We went to have Aperol Spritz after our makeup session, looking all pretty and dolled up and I must say, it was a lovely way to wrap up the evening. If you are in Florence, you need to experience this. :) Thank you Layla!!

Had so much fun with the group learning how to glam up with wine before our night out! I love dramatic eyes and Layla showed me how to create the perfect smokey eye based on my eye color, gave some great tips she had me use to recreate my own version so I can repeat it again at home. She also customized the experience for me since I'd like to get better at blushing based on my face structure. We ended the night at this local spot with a refreshing spritz! A great makeup experience would highly recommend!
