Make Up For Ever Recording Studio

Best Makeup Lesson, August 2012

Whether you can’t figure out how to use bronzer or want to brush up on your contouring skills,Make Up For Ever Recording Studiowill show you how. A $40 product or gift card purchase earns you 20 minutes of complimentary instruction; for another 35 bucks you’re upgraded to a full-hour session in the private recording booth. A pro makeup artist teaches you a trick of the trade (your choice), while the step-by-step lesson is captured by a video camera embedded in the mirror. A lipstick-shaped USB flash drive of the process is sent home with you so that you can practice smudging and blending on your own. Compared with a one-hour lesson at West Hollywood’s Blushington for $100 and the hourlong $500 group class with Scott Barnes (he’s responsible for J.Lo’s famous glow), Make Up For Ever is a deal at $75, most of which is spent on products. » 132 S.
