Ready to book?

Sure.  If you don't which class to pick, you can book a free 10 minute consultation and we can discuss which class would be best suited to you and your needs.

Question 4:  I'm still not sure what class I should schedule.  Could you help?

Since each session runs 1 ½ -2 hours and they all build on your skills, I would not recommend combining classes in a day. It is really hard to retain information when a class runs for more than 2 hours. However, there are a few add-ons that could be added onto your session. You can always purchase multiple classes to be held on different days.

Question 3:  Can I combine multiple classes?

At this point all of the virtual classes that are currently offered are customized for you and done 1:1 over Zoom within the privacy of your own home. There may be some group classes offered in the future. If there is a specific class that you think you would like to host, please do not hesitate to reach out so we can have a conversation.

Question 2:  Are the virtual classes 1:1 or group?

Karyn Carlson Makeup Artistry classes are taught with you in mind. They are specifically customized for each individual from setting up your space, your lighting and mirror(s) to using your tools. You will be coached throughout the entire makeup application process. Prior to your first class, you will receive a short questionnaire to fill out so we make the most of your time. 

Question 1:  Why should I book a virtual class instead of watching YouTube?

Frequently Asked Questions

"A makeup lesson with Karyn is, hands down, one of the best investments I have made. She worked with the beauty products that I already owned, eliminating ones that had gone bad, as well as ones that just did not work with my coloring. She recommended only a few key items and I learned application techniques. Also she didn’t try to change me or conform me to some arbitrary standard of beauty, rather she looked at MY face, showing me how to highlight my features."  

"Karyn is not only a very kind and generous person, she is also an amazing professional. She knows everything there is to know on every product on the market. She can justify with detailed explanation what brands to avoid and what brands to buy. She knows about makeup but also anti-aging creams or moisturizers.  She showed me the best way to apply creams and makeup and why it should be done a certain way."

"I was impressed by Karyn's gracious professionalism, her knowledge of makeup products, and her sense of color. She is obviously an artist by nature, and she has enhanced that natural eye for beauty with an excellent education in human anatomy and design principles."

"I really appreciated learning the science and art behind your recommendations, which helped me understand the real benefits of the skincare routine."

"Karyn’s classes are awesome!!  I cannot wait for my next class."

"Karyn’s knowledge, gentle hand and personable informative presentation were excellent. I would say that this is a wonderful thing to do for yourself. Your skin changes as you get older (duh!) and so should the products and techniques you use. Thanks for the information, hands-on help and education Karyn."
