Private Makeup Teacher

Hello! My name is Maria and I love teaching makeup. I have been doing makeup on clients for three years now. I teach makeup at all skill levels. For beginner students, I make sure to start with the basics. You don’t need a lot of makeup, and I can help u apply the makeup you have on hand. If you want, I can recommend some good items to start off with. I will thoroughly explain the function of each item, where to apply it, and the best way to blend it. For intermediate to advanced students, I can show you how to create any look you want. You can send me a picture, and we can create it step by step. I am really flexible and I am willing to help you create anything you like.

I teach correct and enhancing makeup techniques according to clients skin tone, facial shape, and facial features. I use the Seasonal Color Analysis approach to determine what skin tone the client is, either cool or warm. I have an extensive beauty field background. Early in my adulthood, I became a licensed cosmetologist in Minnesota. I have also been active as a Beauty Consultant almost all of my adult years with two different cosmetic companies. I love working with women and encouraging them to look and feel their very best, which boosts their self-esteem and self-confidence.

Krista M.
I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!
