It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I am constantly asked my friends, family, and STRANGERS about helping them to do their makeup. Whether it's basic skills for every day looks, or more difficult and complex techniques for more dramatic looks, I'm your gal!

I've completed 3 lessons with Emily, which were a gift from my husband. At 40+, I haven't used make-up in my life much and needed every help I could get. Emily has been wonderful throughout the process. She walked me step by step through applying 3 different make-up looks, while providing information on various techniques, tools and cosmetics. She was responsive to my needs and answered all my questions. Plus, she is super nice. I would recommend lessons with Emily to everybody who is looking to learn or improve their make-up application skills. I am certainly looking forward to wearing make-up more frequently now that I know what I'm doing, thanks to Emily.

I learned SO much in 45 min. It was even better than I expected! I had been learning how to braid from YouTube but having Emily give me advice on what I was specifically doing was very benificial!

This class can be done in two different ways.
1) day to day make up
2) stage makeup

In my first version of the class I will teach you different make up designs/looks that you can wear on different occasions. Some people are never taught how to do their make up, some it comes naturally. I have shown many people how to apply makeup and I would love to help you too!

In the second version of this class I will teach you how to apply makeup for theatrical purposes. Example: old age makeup, injury makeup, intense realistic animal makeup, mystical makeup. I took classes in college on this and will be happy to spread the fun of theatre makeup!

Open to everyone! I do not and will not discriminate nor will I tolerate discrimination. Makeup lessons with me will be fun, informing and rewarding. I am very experienced with makeup, but not only with makeup, with skincare as well, so you will not only be learning how to apply makeup, the best and the worst type of makeup brands and what enhances your make up, you will also be learning how to take care of your skin as well. You will not be disappointed with my classes and I will make sure the class is worth it! I will make sure you learned everything you needed to and wanted to learn about the beauty of makeup and also make sure your goals with learning certain things with makeup are met.

The best Mac and cheese I have ever made was taught by Ms. Essence. I love how fun and how much she taught me about food and how to clean foods correctly. All the recipes I learned from here I used for Thanksgiving this year it was the best

Hi! My name is Stephanie and I have been experimenting with makeup since I was in middle school. Yes, I was that girl who would come to school with bright green eye shadow one day and a black smokey eye the next! I just love expressing myself through makeup especially colorful makeup! I love glitter and a beaming highlight. I especially know of a lot of amazing brands that I use and trust to help advise you on what to purchase with your hard earned money so it isn't a waste, especially as a beginner or whatever stage you're at! If you just need help with a night out or even want to get ready together for a special date, I'm all here for it! I can do anything from a natural face to full glam and even some Halloween looks! I use makeup to express myself and I'd love to help you with doing that as well or just looking nice and presentable whether its for a job interview, party, wedding, homecoming, prom, cheer competition, etc! Looking forward to getting glam together!
