I took my first Pro class from Mac last Sunday in Wash, DC. Mac offers pro classes to their pro members in a variety of topics on makeup and application. I took the Bridal makeup class. It was amazing! This particular class was for 2 hours and the price was $100 (that was fully redeemable in products). The instructor was one of Mac's Senior Pro Artists, Tiffany Johnston.
Tiffany was a great instructor. She has been a makeup artist for over 20 years! The first part of the class she put us at ease and asked us what we wanted to learn out of the class and she answered all of our questions from contracts, kit essentials, bridal consultations, rates, to our professionalism. The second half of the class she did a full bridal look on one of the Mac employees.
After the learning part of our class was over we were able to purchase our products! The $100 that we paid for the class is a actually a gift certificate reserved for us once we get to the class. We had the choice of using the gift certificate there or using it at another time. I chose to use my gift certificate there. I needed and wanted a lot of items. I picked up a couple of lip glasses, lip stick, concealer, foundation, paint pots, blush, brush cleanser, a few eye shadows and some mascara.
Overall the class was EXCELLENT! I love to learn about perfecting my craft in makeup so I'm always looking for opportunities to learn and it was just great being in a class with other makeup artists from all ages, races and both genders. It was eye opening to talk with them and see that no matter how long they've been in the business or how much clientele they have- they're still eager to learn and have the same desire to polish their skills. I will be taking more classes in the future :)
