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!

About Sarah
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Sarah and I am honored you have chosen to look at my profile. Finding the right teacher is so important! I always try to make sure that I accommodate what is best for each individual student when I approach teaching. Before we get into my teach methods, let me tell you a bit about myself and my background.
I graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with a BFA in musical theater and a minor in art and design. I know at a glance it may be overwhelming how many classes I teach. You see, as Musical Theatre Major I had to learn a VAST amount of topics. I studied many forms of dance, took advance makeup courses, vocal training, acting, along with all of the sub categories that go with it; not to mention with my minor in art and design I know my way around with a paint brush/camera/computer. Art, in all form
s are has always been my way of expressing, feeling, and embracing life.
When I had my internship at the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre and I had to learn ALL aspects of theatre and I had the pleasure to work with kids every day.

I was training American Sign Language at Northern Virginia Community College back in 2012. In 2015 I studied under an ASL master from Gallaudet University. I have continued to further my knowledge of ASL every day. I was recently the ASL captain at work who helped make sure all signs were done correctly and expressed properly.

My goal is to help you learn what you are craving to know! I try to not charge too high for lessons, I know that this is something that is for fun and is not always a possibility so I try to keep it at a lowish price so that everyone has a chance to learn. I am very flexible to schedules. I am willing to have a regular time or switching it up weekly; I have students who travel for a living so they are always on a different time zone; no matter the obstacle I will make it work for you!
Something that is great to know about me is that I never stop training, pursuing growth and knowledge. I read books in these various fields to learn more and more, take master classes, and train with my own vocal coaches. I think art - on any platform, is a great way to get out of your head, free your mind, and open up yourself. So this can be for professional training, a hobby you always wanted to pursue, or a dream you wanted to chase after.

In my class with you, or you child, I will make an individualized lesson plan that focus around what skills you already have, what skills you aim to improve/gain, and how you learn. I am very familiar with the fact that we are ALL different, which means we will all learn DIFFERENTLY. I am willing to explain something in as many ways as one needs in order to understand. I like to think of my lessons as a “safe place” to explore, have fun, grow, and be okay with making mistakes. We will always start with the basics, understand the core of the craft - for example in singing that would be our vocal anatomy and how it all connects together. I use props to help make the concept more visual and graspable as well as diagrams. This is not something someone will pick up in one lesson, so don’t come in saying “I can’t”, you can, you just have to learn HOW. I will show you the how. Remember, this is a learning process, we must embrace each step of our growth.
-----
Some background of how I came to do what I do:
I have been working professionally for theatres for five years now; which has had me living in various towns in NC, OH, AR, and traveling nationwide for tours. I have a lot of experience under my belt for my years. I began taking performance classes as young as age 2 when I started ballet, then I began singing in choir in third grade. I started being in awe of sign language when I saw an interpreter working her magic around age ten and I asked my mom for a sign language book. Expanding my knowledge is what I do for fun, so when you pick me you pick someone who is constantly growing and learning more which will ultimately benefit the student.

I teach a variety of classes that, for the most part, circle around the arts! Some of my classes include, but are not limited to: Acting, Child Acting, Improv Audition Prep, Various styles of “Singing” classes, Ear Training, Musical Theatre, Music Performance, Various “Art” classes, Facial Exercises (Which is great for singers, and those who speak a lot day to day to help relieve tension in the face), and more!
For an explanation on each class, I will be recording a video that describes them and posting that on here soon! There is a video trailer of me singing and dancing that is currently available. If you want to know anything more at all please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can!

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!

About Stephanie
Hi! My name is Stephanie and I've been experimenting with wearing makeup since I was in middle school. Yes, I was that girl that would show up to school with green eye shadow on the lower lash line one day and a black smokey eye the next. I love to express myself through makeup and the way it makes me feel when I put it on especially when I get to play with different colors. I love glitter and a beaming highlight, If you need help with just a night out and want to get ready together, I'm all for it! I can do anything from a natural face to full-glam! I also can suggest specific brands, I mostly shop at Sephora and Ulta but I know of a lot of brands that I love and trust and wear on a weekly basis. If you need help with what to wear on a daily basis, interview, homecoming, prom, date night, wedding, cheer competition, etc I'm here to help!
I just want to share what I've been able to teach myself over the years with trial and error to others to save time and to learn how to express yourself in a beautiful, artistic way! Looking forward to getting glam!
