In Hollywood, close-ups are reserved for actors with either striking good looks or rectangular heads with a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Boost your screen worthiness with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a private one-hour makeup lesson at Shara Makeup Studio, valid at the studio's East 61st Street location (a $125 value).

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. Customers may purchase Shara's own line of brushes and products used at the end of the session, though they are not included with today's Groupon.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Shara Makeup Studio a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.

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.

Customer Reviews

Shara studio is located in a small and cozy well lit studio in a hotel. The lady who taught me was very nice and encouraging. I liked the fact that she let me do half my face and helped me with my mistakes. I also like that they give you a written sheet of what they did so you can remember. I enjoyed my time. They also sell makeup.

For my make up lesson, I felt welcome and completely at ease right away. Shara has a warm spirit, and is very encouraging, patient and precise. I radiated with confidence at the end! Also, her products are superb. Thank you, Shara Katherine H.

I had the most wonderful experience. It was learning made simple. For my first attempt I left there with knowledge of how to apply make up. If I can do this and remember anyone can. Thank you thank you.
