It was a good workshop. I thought that the ad was misleading because it originally was set at a very high price of a few hundred dollars but we were getting the service for $50. I had expected as advertised that someone would work on us individually as opposed to in a more lecture style format. However, considering the price and the topics the facilitator covered, it was not too bad of a service for the price.
What a waste of time. The Make up Artist did everything the complete opposite of how it should be done. First thing about make up is hygiene....that was not the case in this class. Even I know that and I have no training. She used her fingers on other peoples face and did not clean her brushes between using it on people and even put it back int he make up after touching faces. HORRIBLE! The make up artisit and the Hair Stylist were not personable people. They didnt even say their names!!! They were actually kind of rude and snobby. What a waste of time and money. I did not learn anything in this course.
Using clean makeup kit would really help
have hand-outs on product information (i.e. what is a foundation primer? benefits? recommended brands that are affordable, etc.). otherwise, very helpful.
The hairstylist wasn't professional at all. She didn't introduce herself at the beginning of her part of the class. Somebody actually had to ask her what her name was; she also didn't go through her qualifications or give any background on herself. She was chewing gum the whole time and didn't really explain what she was doing. It was more like a demonstration instead of teaching. As for the makeup artist, she like the hairstylist was also very nice, however she got a little defensive a couple times when someone asked her a question. She also left the workshop around 5 min early while there were still people in the classroom.
The make-up artist (Syra) was fabulous :) Was very attentive, always explained things to us, she was a great teacher, learned alot from her. My make-up looks fabulous today! The hair portion was good but teacher seemed in a hurry, wish we had of had more time with her and maybe learned some braiding etc.
Better location required where we sit at tables with missors to follow along.
It was not good value for the money. Expect more service did not learn anything new.
I would NOT recommend this I would say this would be worth only $20 not $50
From Our Editors
Before the makeup artists of Makeup Pro begin selecting colours for their application services, they start by prepping their canvas, softening each client’s skin with a complimentary cleansing and mask. Once skin is clear, the certified pros begin designing a look customized to each woman’s complexion, features, and type of event they are attending. A team of hairstylists also helps prep patrons, fancifying locks with blowouts, updos, or confetti for each individual strand.
In addition to makeup applications, they host instructional classes that equip students with the skills needed to create day or evening looks with cosmetics and hairstyling. They regularly update the curriculum to keep pace with current trends, and include both practical application and specialized skills, such as how to make a sleepy third eye look more awake. Students can ensure their at-home attempts look expertly applied by investing in professional goat- and pony-hair makeup brushes. They also recieve a seven-piece makeup brush set with a case when they take the class.
