Here's how the course runs
Are you ready? Grab your spot before it sells out!
How long are the classes?
Class last between an hour to an hour and a half, plus any additional time needed for Q and A.
What if I can’t attend classes live or if I miss a class?
Not a problem at all! Every single one of our classes will be recorded, so you can watch (and re-watch!) them at any time.
Will you be teaching how to feminize my features?
Although I do teach how to cover a 5 O'clock shadow, I do not go into contouring or other advanced feminizing makeup techniques in this course. To get the absolute best results when you are newly learning makeup, you need to build up your skills gradually and not overwhelm yourself. I promise it's in your best interest to master these basics first. The good news is: doing a full-faced makeup routine like the one you learn in the course is already inherently feminizing! You'll see a big difference just from implementing this routine.
What will I need to own or buy in order to do this course?
During the course I teach you how to do a full-face look that you can easily customize for any occasion, so after week 2 (our 'buy week'), I'd advise you to purchase the products you need for this look. This involves foundation, concealer, color corrector (if you need to cover a 5 O’clock shadow), powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, brow pencil, mascara, blush, lipstick, and the tools to apply these. Don't stress--I actually make this super easy for you! Not only do I send you a 'product checklist' so you know exactly which products you need, I also send you my exclusive 'buying guide' with all of my pro recommendations so you know which products and brands I think are the best! Also, you can feel free to incorporate what you already own—no need to buy completely new makeup if you have things you already like!
What if I have zero makeup knowledge and experience?
This course was designed for people just like you! You can come in knowing absolutely nothing—I’m here to teach you makeup from the ground up! The only thing you need is the ability to buy your first set of products to practice with.
What if I’ve been doing my makeup for a while already?
You might be shocked to know this…but almost NOBODY is ever directly taught makeup. Just like you, most people are stuck learning bits and pieces through social media, books, and asking around for advice. This is a terrible way to learn everything! Because this course teaches you makeup in-depth, it fills in all the knowledge gaps that are throwing your current routine off. Plus, I’ve been doing makeup for over 17 years, which means what you learn from me will be the most professional techniques you’ll find anywhere—period. I guarantee even if you’ve got some parts of your routine down, you’re going to see big improvements and feel way more confident moving forward.
Is this class for transgender people only?
I do want to be clear that I myself am cis-gendered, however, this course is designed to be an environment where everyone feels 100% safe, comfortable, and private. Because of this, everyone who takes the course should fall under the trans* umbrella. If you do not identify this way, please feel free to take one of my free classes or book a one-on-one session with me instead! I'm still happy to help you.
I don’t want to be seen on camera during class. Is that OK?
Absolutely! This class is designed to keep everyone feeling as safe as humanly possible! Just so you know--most folx who take this course are not fully out yet, and I am 100% committed to maintaining your privacy and meeting you exactly where you're at right now. Always feel free to change your name, hide your video, etc during the course. You can also watch the recordings instead of attending live if that makes you feel even more comfortable.
