Where do these training sessions take place?
I host the training in my home studio in Newmarket. This is about 15 minutes north of Richmond Hill and certainly on a go-train line. For those without a car who decide to come by Go-bus or Go Train, I can send a schedule to help you and pick you up at the station when you arrive.
Do I use my own makeup for this training?
I would like you to bring your makeup. We do review your kit so I can give stocking advice. And I offer access to all of my makeup including my expensive brushes that everyone loves. At $200 for some of these, they are a luxury that has to be tried by any makeup junkie! I do have specific colours & and products that are my “go to” ones for bridal and they always ensure success so I’d like you to see and certainly use them.
Can I bring my own model?
I encourage you to bring your own model. I have found that when the artist brings a model they have worked with, or a friend or family member, they learn the differences in my technque better. That’s because they are working on a face they’ve worked on before. They are also more relaxed in learning and don’t feel the pressure to be perfect. It’s all very casual and having you control your subject means you bring someone who’ll be honest with you and give really useful feedback. This makes the experience truly authentic.
What if I have a friend who also wants to learn?
My home studio is set up to fit 2 full director’s height chairs and I have done training for 2 artists at the same time. That would be my limit. I find it useful for the artists because you bounce ideas off each other and ask questions the other hadn’t thought of. You draw even more learning out that way. We would end up taking more time to deal with the individual guidance of each makeover and steps. This session would be 7-8 hours. We’d take a lunch break. The fee per artist would then be $500 each. You both receive the same handouts and we do take time to talk about each kit. That saves you both $150.
Does this training cover airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup training is not part of this 5 hour power session. It is a highly specialized skill and can’t be included in a full-face training session that is less than a full day. We also focus a lot of time on each area of the face with great detail. That means airbrush training wouldn’t be practical. I can answer any questions and discuss it, as I use it all the time for bridal work. You’ll get the best answers on education for airbrushing that you will need.
How do I book this special training with you?
You can just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-841-5250. (not long distance from Toronto). Let me know you’d like to talk about the training. You can send your phone number to call you. These sessions are highly customized. I can focus on the techniques you feel weakest in and we can spend a lot of time discussing what you’d like. We can pick some general tentative dates. As I mentioned above, I want to find some brides who’ll share this experience with us and who’d like to volunteer to model for you. I would need time to scout them.
