Individual Master Class

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 I'll go through your own current go-to makeup items that you bring along.  I'll share with you what I feel needs to go and what can stay based on if it's right for your skin-tone, longevity of product, etc.  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.

****Please note, for any class or appointment of 2 hours or more, a deposit may be required to hold the the slot since it's a larger duration of time being booked. Thank you!
