Make Up For Ever has done an incredible job in creating learning opportunities for both professional makeup artists as well as makeup lovers for years. This is the reason that I am a loyal fan of the brand. I love their commitment to education and building networks within the makeup community.

This post will be one of the first of my “Way Back When” series due to this event happening in March of this year. 😉
I’ve attended these Make Up For Ever classes since 2011. In 2011 and 2012, the classes were for 3 days and were scheduled every 1hr 1/2. This year all of the classes were still 1hr 1/2 but they were condensed to only one day. You can check out my recap of the 2011 and 2012 classes I attended here and here. I always walk away with a greater knowledge about the brand, new makeup techniques, and a bigger connection with other makeup artists. Oh, and did I mention that these classes are absolutely FREE!!! 🙂
The first class that I attended was on the Infamous Flash Color Palette, which was taught by MUFE Pro and Media Educator Jessie Powers. She showed the class how to do a full face of makeup using this one amazing palette.
Next she blended the foundation colorsSorry that the pic above and below are a bit blurry. I tried to catch these pictures as she was using her hands.
Jessie created a contour color as well.Next she blended a couple colors from the Flash Color Palette to do the model’s eyes and lips.Jessie created two different eye looks to give the class some variation on how to use the palette for any occasion. This was the 1st look.
This is the 2nd look. She did a softer combo.
Also check out the pretty contour she created. It’s not too over the top, but enough to notice.
After class the class, I took a picture with Jessie and Dallas MUFE Artist Natalia.
