At Home Makeup Edit & Lesson

An exclusive service now offered in the comfort of your own home. Pittsburgh Makeup is dedicated in having you look and feel like the best version of yourself. Just like it's important to go through clothing that no longer works for you, it's equally as important to toss out makeup items that are no longer cutting it. We often keep makeup that is past it's expiration date, doesn't look flattering on us and just don’t accentuate our best features like they could. Maybe we are in a new season, you’ve changed your hair color or just need to freshen up your look — I invite you to become a makeup minimalist. Have ONLY items that work for you. This will make mornings less hectic and the "good stuff" doesn't get lost in the shuffle with all the not so good stuff. You will be amazed at how you feel after this process and how much easier it will be to get ready — this is all about you for once and you deserve it!

Cost: $275. This service lasts typically for 2 hours or slightly longer. Includes up to 60 mile radius of driving. If over 60 -- a .56/mile travel fee is added to the mileage exceeding that. **Please note that a deposit of $50 is taken at time of appointment to retain this service.

With this experience you’ll receive:

* A complete makeup edit. Have all your goodies out and ready to go so we can keep only those items that work with your skin-tone & complexion but say bye-bye to what doesn't work. We’ll also toss out old and expired makeup.

* A "wish list" of what you are missing if anything - ideas for what can make your makeup wardrobe more streamlined and complete.

* A 1 hour makeup lesson which shows you a quick 10 minute face and how to bump that up for an evening out or event.

* A face-chart with tips that we discussed that will easily break-down how you can create the look.

* A $30 credit towards a makeup product that we carry -- you'll most likely want or need something after your lesson but you can use this credit at anytime.

Individual Master Class {In Studio}

Let's get down to business.  No stone will be left un-turned in this two hour class and it's designed around your specific beauty needs. We'll start with a thorough consultation to pinpoint what your expectations are with your makeup as well as your skincare routine. Next we'll take a look through your own makeup bag to see what your currently working with and make some suggestions about what to keep and possibly get rid of! We love starting this class with what tools you will need to create a nice classic everyday look, since tools are truly an essential part of a flawless look.  This first look we do will be something you are able to do in 10-15 minutes for a fresh look.  Then you'll learn how you can bump this look up for an evening out, we can even try false lashes if you want! When we're done with the lesson, a complete face-chart and clear instructions will be given to you to help you duplicate the look, along with a detailed list of products that were used in your class. As with all of our lessons and clients, we are always free after the class through a quick email or call when you feel like you have any questions and absolutely love hearing the progress you are making with your new products and skills!

Cost: $175 ... {2 hours} With any $50 or more purchase of skincare or makeup at the studio the class is lowered to $125. Must be purchased day of the class or full price applies.
