Comprehensive Makeup Classes for All Skill Levels!

I have really enjoyed teaching the Makeup 101 classes and find that they are helpful at providing women with a better understanding of makeup in general.  This class is a great introduction to makeup.  A few women told me the following after attending the class:


  • Mary Thorne, a mother of three and a talented photographer, said, “I love how knowledgeable you are and how fun!”
  • Maria Christensen, a vivacious, funny, and active woman said, “I loved your fun stories and your tips specific to me.  Lot of recommendations of products too.  Just made me want to learn more. Next class please.”
  • Sheri Denton, a kind makeup lover, with a passion for hiking said, “It was so great to finally get a professional unbiased opinion on what products are the best for my skin type.  I loved learning about highlighting, contouring, and concealing.  I’ve been doing it wrong for years and I didn’t even know it.  You took time to answer my questions about my skin issues and taught me what I need to do to resolve them.  It was such a fun and informative class.  The two hours just flew by.”
  • Brittnie Gillespie, a funny, kind hearted, dirty diet coke drinking mother of two said, “You’re so sweet and knowledgeable.  Full of great tips and tricks!  You make it personable and easy to understand. The celebrity stories are a plus too!”


When I teach a Makeup 101 class, you receive a great overview of makeup.  However, the class is not as comprehensive.  I do not have the time to provide everyone with one-on-one training or application instruction.  For this reason, I have added low-cost comprehensive makeup classes in AZ.  Learn more about them below.
Complexion 101
This class offers a hands-on guide to complexion (primer, foundation, concealer, powder).  Class members come with a clean face and the the products and tools (brushes, sponges, etc.) they normally use to apply their complexion each day.  During the class we do the following:
  • Evaluate what you are currently using to see if it is right for your skin in terms of coverage, color, and product type.
  • Learn about the different products available for complexion (i.e. bb creams, HD foundations, illuminating foundations, tinted moisturizers, powders, concealers)
  • Experiment with other options for products
  • Learn how to match foundations and concealers
  • Select the right products for your skin based on your lifestyle, needs, and desires
  • Practice application for foundation, congealer, and powder
  • Test out different foundation brushes or sponges.
This class is hands-on and interactive.  You will leave with a better understanding of what products to choose for your skin.  You will also feel confident on how to apply them.  I will supply all the additional makeup that you do not have, so you can experiment in a comfortable environment.  You will be able to ask questions to learn how to best perfect your foundation.

Eyes and Brows 101
The eyes and brows class is also a hands-on approach to help you understand how to better do your eye makeup.  It begins with an introduction to shaping your brows and finishes with eye makeup tutorials.  During this class, I will help you be the artist so you leave feeling more confident that you can recreate the look on your own.  We will cover the following:
  • Evaluate your current products to determine if they are right for you
  • Shaping of the brows
  • Brow products to use
  • Choosing the best colors for your eyes
  • How to do a smoky eye
  • How to do a cat eye
  • How to take your makeup from day to night
  • What kind of lashes to choose for your eyes and where to apply them (if you are interested)
  • Application techniques
  • What brushes to use
  • Enhancing your own eye shape
  • Getting rid of discoloration in the eye area
  • Mascara options to consider
For this class, I ask people to come with no eye makeup.  I also recommend them to bring the eye products and tools they like to use.  The class will be very interactive, and each person will leave feeling more empowered about doing their own makeup.

Lips and Cheeks 101
The lips and cheeks class is one of my favorite classes that will help you bring life to your features.  I recommend people to come with minimal makeup to this class.  They can also bring the lip and cheek products they use normally.  In the class, we will cover the following:
  • Review the products you are currently using to determine if they work for you
  • Receive an in depth review of contouring so you feel confident about enhancing your own features
  • Learn how to highlight 
  • Learn about choosing the right blush and lip colors
  • Help you to feel more confident when it comes to wearing lip color (i will teach you how to step your lip color up a notch)
  • Go over how to make your lips look larger without making them look unnatural
  • Review blush application techniques
  • Experiment with different types of blush to determine what looks best on your skin
  • Learn how to apply lip liner appropriately
  • Go over the different lip products available to help you find something you are comfortable using
I am a firm believer that what we put on our lips and cheeks can make the biggest difference with our makeup.  With this class, you can learn how to truly take your makeup up to the next level.  This class is also interactive.  Therefore, you will leave confident that you can apply what you learn in your bathroom at home.
Pricing:
  • For parties of 8 people or more, the class fee is $10 per person. (comprehensive classes are limited to 12 people)
  • For parties of less than 8 people, the class fee is $80.
  • For parties that are not at my house, I charge a $25 traveling fee.  
*I live in Gilbert and typically have classes at 7:30pm.  They last approximately 2 hours.  I will travel anywhere in the East Valley, to Ahwatukee, some areas of Scottsdale, and some areas of Phoenix.  Any travel over 25 miles costs an extra $1 per mile.
