About This Class

In this class I want to show you how you can make artwork with your makeup and draw a beautiful face chart. If you think you can’t draw, no worries, I will teach you all the tips and tricks I learned from years of makeup artistry and drawing combined!

With this new knowledge I’m hoping you will feel more confident to design and illustrate makeup looks and be proud of the work that you can create. You could frame it to decorate your walls or add text to it and make an inspirational poster.

Follow my lead to have fun with your makeup and discover new expressive ways to create artwork!


So gather your makeup and let’s get started!

Anyone can take this class. No prior knowledge of makeup is required.

See my class on Eyebrow Makeup for more in depth talk about the shape of the eyebrow and learn more about pairing eyeshadows with Color Theory for Makeup: Eyeshadow Magic. Don't forget to Clean Your Brushes when you're done, too.
