Discover the Best Makeup Classes in NYC

Makeup is more popular than ever as an art form and a mode of self-expression. Even so, people have used makeup for thousands of years, for religious rituals, cultural traditions, and beauty enhancement. 

The ancient Egyptians lined their eyes with kohl to create a smoky effect, the Greeks applied lead-based makeup for a pale complexion, and Renaissance women used egg whites for a matte complexion and colored their lips and cheeks with natural pigments.

People use makeup to express their personality and individuality, inspired by new trends and styles they see from makeup tutorials and beauty influencers. Makeup can enhance your features, conceal imperfections, or create a unique style, whether it’s subtle and natural-looking or a bold, dramatic look that makes a statement. 

You can create a complete look using multiple types of makeup – like foundation, concealer, blush, eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick – or select just a few. Keep your skin healthy with high-quality, safe, and certified makeup. Quality makeup is easier to apply and gives you better-looking results.
