Covid – 19 Update

Thank you all for your continued support through this difficult time. We have made some adjustments to our classes and we hope this will make everyone feel a little more at ease while the state continues the reopening process.

MAKEUP CLASSES will be one on one and the student MUST provide a model for all the days. This model must be comfortable with not wearing a mask for part of the lesson (i.e. when you apply foundation). It is wise to choose someone you live with or someone you have spent time with during the state shut down.

EYELASH EXTENSION class will be 2 students to a class. No model is required for this class as students will be working on a mannequin. This will allow us to still wear our masks and keep a safe 6 foot distance from one another.

Please know that we are/will do everything to make sure our classrooms and tools are thoroughly sanitized. Although this is something we have always done throughout the years, we will take this even more serious now. If you have any questions please feel free to call or text us!

Another 5 Star Review *****

First of all, where is the 10 star on here!
I don’t even know where to start I can’t thank Gia enough!  I would take this course over and over it was worth every penny, I highly recommend this course, if you don’t take it you will regret it.  Gia is an incredibly talented instructor, I was taught everything and more than I expected in such a short amount of time, but it’s absolutely perfect! Everything is about this course is amazing, (don’t do this) but I, unfortunately, had to contact Gia after 11 pm a couple of times And she would literally text back in 6 seconds she is all about her students! The kit I received I was speechless! Products we used in class are high quality and she let us use as much as needed! A very very honest and patient instructor, I would redo whatever I had to until it came out perfect. When you’re done with the course you can retake it as many times as needed within a year to practice with no extra charge. It’s not only a great career even better for personal use

Bridal Makeup and Airbrush

When deciding to join the Bridal Industry as a Makeup Artist the question of airbrush always arises. Should you as a Professional Makeup Artist add the skill of airbrush?

Airbrush makeup is a favorite-on the right skin type of course.  Not every style of foundation is flattering or appropriate for every skin type, but airbrush makeup is one of the most flawless looks. For bridal this is a must have as an option. It’s flawless, water resistant and will last all day!

I have tried many types of airbrush makeup and my personal preference is Temptu.  They are innovative and are always looking to improve their formula.  I am 55 years old and their original SB formula is very drying to my skin and I feel like it cracks by the end of the day. The new Hydrolock formula is absolutely amazing and my skin stays glowy and fresh looking throughout the day.

If you’re eager to learn Bridal Airbrush Makeup and get a Temptu Kit included, take our Airbrush Class.  If you are starting from the beginning and need complete makeup training take our Bridal Master Makeup Program which includes a professional makeup kit as well as the Temptu Airbrush kit.
