I googled for hours and hours looking for a great makeup lesson. I'm SO glad I found Shara. She was well worth all of my research. Some background on me: I'm in my 30s, not exactly a makeup junkie (but love all things beauty), and a NYer for 17 years. I've been to what seems like every counter in Bloomingdales, Saks, Lord and Taylor, Sephora to learn some pro tips for applying makeup. I ended up with no real knowledge and a plethora of makeup I never even touched :(
All that is different now since I finally had an amazing makeup lesson with Shara. She analyzed exactly what I really wanted to learn, and really understood me. We went over skincare, makeup colors, and then finally, technique. She was incredibly patient and just a beautiful artist. I don't think I'll be doing my makeup as perfect as Shara in the near future, so for major events, I'll still book her..but, I feel confident that I will be doing my makeup at least 70% better than I used to-on a daily basis. I am glad I brought my makeup case with the products I use most, because Shara also gave me an idea of what I should be using and what I could be throwing away.
I also LOVE the products and brushes I purchased from Shara after my lesson. The brushes were awesome quality and MUCH cheaper than I could find in Sephora. The makeup looked like it was made for me, and again, was relatively inexpensive. I got the most amazing colors!
Oh, and I went out the night of the makeup lesson with a girlfriend who couldn't believe how amazing my skin and eyes looked. I think a true test of great makeup is the girlfriend test! Shara passed with flying colors!
