How I Prepare For Your Makeup Class

Hey beauties! Welcome back to Creative Contour By Carla™! Today's blog is all about preparation for your makeup class. I like to show you all behind the scenes of how I get things together for each of your makeup experiences! On today's makeup blog, I am going to discuss the steps I take to prepare for your Makeup Lesson Experience with Creative Contour By Carla, so let's get into it!

So before I even started teaching makeup lessons to every day people, I had to research on the best ways to even host makeup classes! It may sound silly, but this is something that I didn't even know how to do at first. Remember, I'm a makeup artist by trade, not a teacher, so this was a learning experience for sure.

I also research the latest makeup trends online, makeup products, and other things that I feel may be relevant to my clients when they are ready to learn how to apply their own makeup. Sometimes, it is even related to topics like psychology and self image.

Selecting Items & Methods

Now this one seems a little technical for teaching your how to apply your own makeup, but I promise you, it's so relevant to preparing for your makeup class. I want to make sure that the items I have on-hand in case needed are the best ones for you. I also want to make sure that I am hosting your makeup class in a way that helps you learn the best. Remember that these steps are necessary for you to have the best session possible. I want you to leave your makeup class with your cup full of knowledge and feeling at ease and confident.

Physical Setup

This is a really important aspect on my end as your makeup teacher. I want to setup a space for you that is private, clean, comfortable, and appropriate for your makeup class. This is your time, and I want to help you easily settle into learning mode, whatever that may look like for you. We also need room to spread your makeup collection out so we can go through each item, and select the best products to create your makeup look.


Yes beauties, in addition to research, I do take classes myself! I learn from those who have paved the way before me in the world of makeup artistry. I take classes to brush up on all areas of makeup artistry: makeup application, teaching, color theory, makeup for photography, etc.! These classes help me stay up to date, and also to pass my knowledge onto you all, should you need it in class!

Overall Experience

So this one is probably the most obvious, but experience really matters, especially when you are learning. I try my best to create a great experience for each one of you. This is one of the biggest reasons why I insist on you booking a phone consult with me when you are considering any makeup experience with Creative Contour By Carla. When we can chat and I can learn about what you need, it gives me the opportunity to show up for you! I want you to tell me all the things you are looking for, all the things you don't like about your makeup routine, and to ask me questions! I take notes during our call, and during class as well. These methods help me create the experience you deserve during class!

Beauties, that's really it! These are the ways in which I prepare for your Makeup Lesson Experience here at Creative Contour By Carla! If you have any questions, or are ready to book your class, let's chat! Book your phone consult with me today!

Lots of love, lipstick, and makeup knowledge,
