Essential Smoky Eye Sephora Class

Essential Smoky Eye Sephora Class


As basic as it might sound, makeup is one of my favorite things. Don't get it twisted - I have the same look all the time and really only like to wear neutrals, but I love to binge on YouTube makeup tutorial videos. One thing I haven't accomplished. ever. is the smoky eye look. I always end up looking a littles less vampy and a little too trampy. 

Insert Sephora Beauty Insider classes! Anyone who visits or shops online at Sephora knows about their insider program (free rewards program). If you're lucky enough to have a store close by, then they probably have different FREE classes. 

I've taken the 'Cover and Conceal' class and it was such a learning experience. Because I have fair skin with a neutral to cool undertones, I have to find colors that help cover my problem areas of dark under circles or redness.

For the Sephora Essential Smokey Eye class they provide you with all the tools, expertise and makeup you will need. It's a hands-on class with Sephora experts on hand to help you when you need it. 

First, you watch while a Sephora expert provides a tutorial on another Sephora team member. 

Then, you begin to work at your personal makeup station. 

Everyone's station has the brushes you will need, a mirror, a sheet of paper to take notes, and around the stations is makeup you will use in the class. 

The first thing to do was to use eye cream and eyeshadow primer. 

I practiced with the Naked 3 Smokey Pallette because I just bought it a week ago & wasn't sure what to do with it. 

Sephora also has fun crayon pencils that I had never heard of - they even help teach you which brushes to use for each makeup application. 

Seriously. It's such a good learning class for someone who enjoys wearing makeup and needs to update their skill set. 

We ended the look with concealing around the eyes to brighten it up. 

The end result... 

A bold smokey eye. It was a lot of makeup on a Sunday morning, but I learned SO much that I can now practice and apply at home. I also used brushes that I need to purchase. (I have the most pathetic makeup brush collection...) 

If you're close to a Sephora look online for the beauty classes. They are free, fun, and you can learn new techniques if you're a makeup lover!
