Though clowns are born with the instinctual ability to apply makeup, as they must perform to survive, human babies must be taught how to properly accentuate their mammalian faces. Watch and learn from the masters with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a two-hour makeup application workshop (a $250 value) at Form Academy in Silverlake. The Self Application Makeup Workshop will teach participants professional techniques so they can apply their own makeup for everyday use and special events. Experienced professionals guide face-enhancing enthusiasts as they learn about professional tools, gain product knowledge, and practice application on balloons filled with jelly before being set loose to define invisible cheekbones and reshape undulating eyebrows.
