John Lewis and MAC Cosmetics have cancelled a ‘back-to-school’ make-up masterclass aimed at 12-year-olds.
The event, which was advertised on Facebook and set to take place at Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent, was slammed on social media with some calling it “harmful” and “damaging”.
The ‘mini masterclass’ reportedly cost £30 and offered children lessons on how to “make the best of skin and brows” as the new school year approaches.
One customer wrote: “[I] just want to know why you think it is morally OK to run a back to school makeup event for 12 year olds? Very disappointed.”
