I went to Michael Moore (the owner of the boutique) for a one-on-one makeup lesson yesterday. One word, UNBELIEVEABLE! I was there for two hours, going over everything from skincare to tips and tools and everything else under the sun regarding make-up application. I look like a new person. I was doing everything wrong, but he didn't make me feel like an idiot. They have you bring in all of your make-up, skin care, and tools and then Michael goes through them with you and tosses what you don't need and tries to incorporate what you do have to work with your skin. He was the nicest, most genuine person I have ever met. Not to mention that he assisted Bobby Brown (make-up artist) in New York, has done make up for Julia Roberts, runway models, and the list goes on and on. My skin looks flawless. He does one half of your face and you do the other. Don't be worried about this, though, he walks you through it. It is on the expensive side, but SO WORTH IT!!! I would do it again today. Highly recommended! Tell them that Laura Towne sent you, and e-mail me if you go and tell me about your experience! I LOVED IT!
