If you want to better utilise your impulse purchases, here are 7 makeup courses in Singapore to help you make the most out of the products you own.
1. Bloom By Roseanne Tang
This makeup school is run by beauty blogger and makeup artist Roseanne Tang. She packs years of experience behind her and has been featured in several media outlets such as The Straits Times, Channel NewsAsia, and Her World magazine.
In the Bloom Revolution Course, you can pick and mix from a selection of classes to create lessons tailored to your interests and needs.
All makeup and brushes will be provided. Each class is a one-to-one session with 12 sessions in total. When you purchase the package, you can schedule a class at your convenience over a period of 6 months.
2. M.A.C Cosmetics
M.A.C Cosmetics is synonymous with quality formulas and wide shade ranges, but did you know they also provide complimentary makeup services and one-on-one lessons?
The brand’s walk-in demos are in-store product demonstrations you can request for, but it’s subject to the artist’s availability. Learn makeup techniques for a particular facial feature, or have a makeup look customised to your skin tone.
If you prefer something more comprehensive, M.A.C also provides one-on-one classes with a professional M.A.C makeup artist. Choose from 7 lessons to create work-appropriate looks, theatrical makeup for Halloween, or bridal for your own wedding day.
3. Shu Uemura
Makeup artists have long relied on Shu Uemura’s lightweight, longwear formulas, which is why we’re thrilled to be able to learn from a brand that’s respected by professionals.
With their Learning Atelier class, you will have a 1-on-1 class with Shu Uemura makeup artists who will touch on both skin care and makeup. The course fee of $200 is fully redeemable for products, and Shu Uemura members get special prices for each class too.
4. Cleo Chang
Born in Taiwan, Cleo Chang is a Singapore-based makeup artist who specialises in bridal makeup, but also loves to impart her knowledge and experience through makeup courses. You’ll find high quality makeup brands in her kit, such as Cle de Peau, Chanel Beauty, and Bobbi Brown.
The first part of her one-to-one Basic Personal Makeup Class is dedicated to the basics of skin care, a necessary basis before makeup. Cleo will then assist you in choosing the right foundation for your skin tone, followed by techniques in makeup application.
Next, Cleo will touch on work-appropriate and everyday makeup. She’ll help you find the most flattering eyeshadow colours for your face and style before teaching you to apply eyeliner, blusher and lip colour.
