Class 1: Assembling Your Arsenal
This class will be part discussion and history of makeup, and how stage makeup differs from our day to day looks. In this first class we will not be applying makeup, but will discuss how to create your dream look - how to come up with a concept for your stage look and what products will be needed to achieve it. Class will cover topics like where to shop, what products work best for different skin types, and making a face plot. Bring your makeup and tools!
Class 2: Solid Foundations
Sometimes the hardest part of doing stage makeup is knowing where to start. Luckily, most looks can have a similar starting base that can then be altered for your specific act. This class will focus on the base of your look, and the products needed to make it last! We will start with skincare, then cover priming, foundation, concealing, baking, highlighting and contouring the face. We will be creating a neutral look, but will discuss tricks that can be used to alter our features for stage.
Class 3: The Eyes Have it
If looks could kill, this class will help you slay em! Your eyes are one of the most expressive parts of the face, so let them shine! In class, well discuss brows (including how to cover them), creating color combinations with eye shadow and pigments, applying liner, lashesand glitter! Well be applying makeup so bring your tools!
