Makeup artist Shara Strand wields 10 years of experience gilding guises for television, print, and celebrity events as she teaches her students in one-on-one sessions how to enhance their own façades. Shara will first discuss clients' cosmetic goals and mine their current cosmetics stashes for suitable materials or evidence of sentient mascara brushes. Then Shara adorns each feature on one side of the face, proceeding step by step so that students can easily mimic her movements on the other half of their visage. Finally, application apprentices learn how to choose different brushes and shades for everyday wear, special events, or infiltrating clown fraternities. Though not included with today's Groupon, products or brushes used can be purchased at the end of the session.

Shara Makeup Studio

Calling on skills she honed at Nars and Estée Lauder, Shara Strand has gilded faces for television, print, and celebrity events for the last 15 years. At her elegant and welcoming studio on the Upper East Side, she highlights facial features for weddings and special events with fashion-forward cosmetics and artistic precision, tapping her deft color-matching skills to select the most flattering shades for any skin tone. The makeup expert also leads one-on-one makeup lessons that teach students how to enhance their façades in a manner that will match their personal style and take full advantage of their current cosmetics stashes. Patrons learn how to choose different brushes and shades for everyday wear, special events, or infiltrating clown fraternities, and they can upgrade their makeup collections with Shara's own line of brushes and products.
