    For absolutely anyone who wants to learn about makeup! We will go over foundation, eyeshadows, eyeliner, and hopefully false lashes! We will also cover key products like primer, setting spray, and colour correctors. You don’t have to own any makeup to take this course, as you will get some useful tips and suggestions to build up your collection. If you already have makeup, you can pull it out and follow along with the tutorials! 

    This program is taught by cosplayer Jessica Harkonnen.
