Makeup Artistry Classes

Review of the Makeup Artistry 101 Class

By Rylee Spencer, Lead Stylist and Manager of Sorrida Salon

"Taking Kim’s Makeup Artistry 101 Class really set the foundation for my career. Not only did the class focus on makeup skills, we went over how to give your client the best consultation, bridal trials, sanitation, and email and booking etiquette. There’s so much more to freelancing than just doing makeup and Kim really helps set you up for success! I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to get into the industry! I was also given the opportunity to work with Kim at The Makeup Studio for a year, and it was such an awesome experience. I felt like I wasn’t just working alongside her, I was working with her and learning every step of the way. She is so knowledgeable about makeup trends, working with different face shapes, eye shapes and skin tones and so willing to teach and help you grow in your skills! I could not be more thankful for everything she taught me. I am now manager and lead stylist in a bridal salon in Seattle, and I feel that Kim gave me the knowledge I needed to get there! Thanks Kim!"
