Volunteers needed! The New York Makeup Academy of Japan has been bringing students to take a class with me since 2002 and they are bringing once again 6 students to take my advanced makeup course from the 23rd to the 25th of June. Volunteer for either a demonstration by me, or a makeup by one of the Artists from Japan. It is always a great learning experience for the models as well as the artists, so come enjoy yourself and try something new.
Sunday 23rd is a fun day. Take a demonstration slot and I will take you back to the 20â€™s, 50â€™s. 60â€™s or even the 70â€™s or 80â€™s depending on where your face inspires me to go. This day when the students do your makeup I let them be a creative , although the makeup is mostly fairly conservative with some really beautiful touches like the petals on Orianne the very pretty young woman in the pink dress. I do this to discover their creativity but we do match you up with a makeup that will work on you. If you chose Sunday make sure you plan to see friends afterwards or even bring your friends.
A slot on Monday 24th morning is for the more classic makeup lover who wants to learn about chosing foundation and to try out a smokey eye the focus is on foundation choice and on very beautiful eye makeup. You can learn alot sitting in my chair at 9am or 10am or in that of one of the artists at 11.30am.
To discover how you will look with contouring, blush and a variety of different lip colors take a slot in Monday afternoon as those are the focus of that class. Either at 2.30pm or 3.30pm with me or 4.30pm with one of the Artists.
Tuesday 25th morning is the editorial and wedding class combined. So if you would like to get tips on the best wedding makeup for yourself or how to do your makeup for magazine shoots. Then sit in my chair at 9am or 10am although beware as you may get painted with my Freestyle method in the last 15mins if I feel the Artists are advanced enough or I just get bored and want some fun. If you are not an early bird then write your name down for a slot at 11.30 to be beautified by one of the Japanese makeup artists.
This year we are holding the classes in a great place in Brooklyn . Brooklyn Beauty and Fashion Labo (BBFL) 300 7th street. easy to get to on the F or the R train.
If you are interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reserve a slot for you. The top photo is of a volunteer for the Monday afternoon class together with her makeup artist. The pretty girl in pink came on a Sunday.
