Sephora offers beauty classes and mini makeover in their stores all throughout the year; makeovers happen everyday, but the beauty classes are rare. So I was thrilled to find a class that: 1. was available, 2. at a nearby mall, and 3. that wasn't happening on a Sunday morning, which cuts into church. But today, the opportunity finally came to attend my first Beauty Insider class, in which I learned how to apply false lashes.
This makeup step has always scared me. I don't wear eyeliner and eyelashes are only for special occasions because my eyes twitch so much, so I just stayed away from it all. To get over it, I've had friends show me, watched YouTube videos, and even bought some Ardell lashes from Ulta hoping to get over this hurdle, but never seemed to get it done. But that all changes today!
The false lash class was taught by Lucy, one of the Somerset Collection's Sephora Beauty employee, and included two other students. Tools and products were provided and sanitized for us, but lashes had to be purchased as you can only use Sephora branded lashes. I purchased the Sephora Collection Celebrity #23 lash - they are short, lightweight, natural, and full volume.
I learned a lot of things from the class. She provided a worksheet with steps and walked me through each one. The entire class was HANDS-ON, which I appreciated. I learn better when I actually do it and can ask for help when needed, in which she did provide useful feedback.
So here's how we did it:
And that was it! While I could've learned all of this on YouTube for free and in the comfort of my own home or bed, physically learning from a professional/experienced individual in person helped me dramatically. This simple application also taught me there is still so much information in the world that I don't know. Not that I have to learn all of it, but I want to constantly find what I like and improve my current skills and build new ones.
Everything doesn't have to make money. Do some things for the enjoyment and enhancing your mental, physical, and social skills. Makeup has always been something I've been interested in and is very fascinating. It can definitely be intimidating, but I am going to keep learning and taking as many classes as I can to keep pushing my makeup skills above and beyond.
If you are interested in enhancing your makeup with no, I suggest heading over to Sephora and do a beauty makeover. They offer a lot of help and tips.
I’m forever learning to leave fear and being scared behind and follow what makes me happy.
