Do you ever feel behind on current beauty trends, ready for a product change but too overwhelmed by the number of brands and products on the market, can’t quite master the smokey eye or those pesky false lashes? If you said yes to any of those questions or any other makeup related questions then a Teach.Me Makeup class might be perfect for you!
Makeup, can we just agree that we have a bit of a love hate relationship with it? It can make us feel so beautiful but even as a trained makeup artist some days I could just throw every eye shadow, lipstick, and highlighter right out the window. There is no reason to be ashamed that your kit may only include three essential products or that you have no clue what some products do. Or, even that you have locked yourself in your bathroom, spent a chunk of valuable time trying something new, ended up looking like a clown, and washed it all off in a fit of frustration. So, you (and by you I definitely mean me) just put on your sweatpants, poured a big glass of wine and stayed in for the night in defeat. Well that’s okay, but, there’s also no reason to settle with your everyday look when you are craving something new or working for your products instead of them working for you. You deserve better!

The world of makeup is ever changing and ever growing. And no one expects you to have time for a full glam face everyday or to fill your makeup bag with thirty different products. We took our first beauty lessons from moms, sisters, friends, or magazines when we were a teen and applying it for the first time and haven’t taken another class since. But, now I’m here to ask you, why not? Too busy? Too expensive? Too intimidating? It doesn’t have to be! I designed my class with all those factors in mind. I wanted to offer a class that is an hour, sixty dollars, and has no intimidating factors to it as well as you feel incredible leaving it.

There is nothing wrong with scheduling an hour to benefit ourselves. We all deserve some time to step away and feel pampered. The hour costs sixty dollars and you leave with a full face of makeup as well as a bunch of new tips and tricks. I ask you to bring your current makeup kit, and that’s not because I want to judge it. It’s because I don’t want you to feel the pressure that afterward you need to go out and buy all the products I used in order to achieve the same results. This way you can try some of my favourites and compare them to yours. This way you can achieve what you want to with what’s in your own kit. I will give you helpful recommendations and suggestions in case you decide a product in your kit just isn’t the right fit anymore or you feel like you’re missing something. People look at my kit and feel embarrassed of their own, don’t, before I started doing makeup professionally I had a very small and basic kit. The reason I have such a large kit is because it’s my job, I see lots of people with very different skin types and tones. I need to be prepared for lots of faces, you only need to be prepared for one. I would never expect your kit to look anything like mine. Also, I might have a mild beauty product shopping problem…

Something else we can all commonly struggle with is skincare. If that’s something you feel you are struggling with and are looking for help with then we can chat about that in a class too. There are just as many skin care products as there is makeup products so it’s another beauty category that is easy to get lost in. But, our skin is so important and I always say a great face of makeup starts with great skincare.

I also adapt every class to every person, based on your current routine, lifestyle, struggles and goals. If you have no problem with your foundation routine but are wanting to learn a couple new techniques for eye shadow applications, then that is what we’ll focus on. So, together let’s find you a routine and products that suit you.

I’m not saying everyday will be a perfect flawless makeup day (if anyone has figured that out though let me know) but let’s make it more of a love then a hate relationship. Let’s make it one of those easy relationships where you just get each other and can coexist in perfect harmony. Makeup can be an incredible tool in expressing our style and making us feel fabulous and I want to help you achieve your every makeup goal!
