The professional makeup artists at Rouge Cosmetics furbish faces with expert makeup applications and demonstrate helpful maquillage maneuvers in a friendly, award-winning cosmetics boutique. Customized to the individual lifestyle, number of mouths, and fashion taste of each student, a private makeup lesson employs the experience of a professional makeup artist to equip students with knowledge of the proper tools, products, and techniques. Each student leaves the lesson with a personalized makeup guide with cosmetic tips, which works as a cheat sheet when buying products, applying makeup, or engaging in a presidential primary debate with Max Factor.
Alternatively, groups of gals can schedule a makeup party to take in savvy cosmetics cues from a pro while snacking on complimentary cheese and crackers and sipping on libations toted from home. The instructor teaches attendees how to apply three unique evening looks, provides tutelage in false lash application, and demonstrates how makeup—when applied correctly—can make an everyday housecat pass for Wilford Brimley. Partiers that purchase $100 or more worth of products at the event also receive a special gift to go along with the purchase.
