The cost includes the price of the class, and a beginners professional brush kit. Upon completion of the class you will receive a certificate of completion that can be used for professional discounts or industry needs.


Make- up 101  make up class is suggested for make up artist who are just starting out, make up artist new to the make up field,  students interested in the industry of make up or make up artist who want to refresh there knowledge on the new industry standards.  This class is not limited to aspiring make- up artist only ; it is also for the person who wanted to learn how to apply their own make- up or create different make- up “looks”.


Class Description: This course, which is a full day hands-on course, was designed to emphasize the techniques and necessity to detail that are required today in the realm of feature film, TV (HD), print photography, advertising, high fashion, beauty, and bridal industries as well as medical esthetics and special effects.

The course is for those who want a more in-depth look at the fundamentals of makeup that are essential when working in film, TV, fashion, print, or bridal.

What exactly are the fundamentals of makeup? They are the artistic elements (knowledge, skills and tools) that are imperative to understand when one is doing make up 
by Text-Enhance">by Text-Enhance" href="">applicationand/or special effects. This class covers color, skin tones, texture, contouring, color matching, contrast, shading and anatomy.

When one is just learning, the very first thing to understand is the fundamentals of art and how they translate to the art of makeup application. This class provides a more in-depth look at the fundamentals such as: facial anatomy, color (skin tones, overtones and undertones) texture,  by Text-Enhance">by Text-Enhance" href="">skin care, and lighting transitions from stage to HD including the secrets of the trade (yes, I will share some) and makeup product lines. The class will also demonstrate proper makeup-station set-up, sanitation and (very important) business etiquette. Since these classes are taught in the Atelier method, we not only welcome class participation, we encourage it. This course is 'hands- on' instruction.

Once one understands and continues to practice the fundamentals that 
by Text-Enhance">by Text-Enhance" href="">apply to the world of makeup, the imagination can expand with greater insight to achieve a “look from inception to perfection”.

As you begin to understand the fundamental, you will also begin to better understand the importance of how the makeup you're using, translates to the camera, because HD is unforgiving in terms of showing everything (including pores). Understanding the skin’s texture will serve you greatly when applying makeup. Whether you are applying a prosthetic mask or doing bridal make up, the overall goal is perfection.


The first half of the class will be curriculum based , while the second half of the class will be hands on make up application.


Shannon  ask all students to bring a pen and paper, any make up you may own/ your make up kit ( even if it is little or none) The class will be hands on the second half of the day and although we will have make up for students to use from our personal make up kits we also ask you  to bring in what you have so you can ask any question or get familiar with your make up and find other uses for make up and products that you may already have.


Price: $250.00 ( no refundable or transferable)

 Price of the class must be paid in full before the date of the class
