About this pro

Hello everyone,  I offer 1 on 1 private in home make up lessons. I also offer group lessons from 7 up to 15 per class.  It's fun to learn along with friends and/or family.  I like working with your product that you already have, in your also be able to make of lists of items that you will need to purchase for later use.

 I pride myself on being able to offer hands on make up instruction. Having a master make a bardas watch you execute make up looks starting with natural all the way to dramatic. The strategy has been proven to work well with having a artist standing next to you guiding you through the execution of your looks.

I love giving people the opportunity to change their outlook on themselves by teaching them Make up skills that will last a lifetime.

My favorite part about teaching make up classes is watching that Ahha moment, when a student connects to what I'm teaching them.

    I can't say enough good things about working with Dawn. I first met Dawn more than five years ago when she did my makeup for my wedding. Over the years I have used her for all of my important events and special occasions to do my makeup. Finally, I decided to ask Dawn to give me some makeup lessons with the hopes of becoming more confident in being able to put together both an everyday look for work as well as do my makeup to go out in the evenings. Dawn is patient and an all around excellent teacher. I have had several lessons with Dawn which included buying new makeup and tools that I needed and then helping me organize everything that I have in a way that it was easy for me to apply what I learned during my lessons. During my lesson, Dawn really paid attention to my learning style and adapted her teaching method in such a way that I could understand. After my lessons, she followed up to ensure that I didn't have any questions and encouraged me to send her photos of myself made up to see my progress. While I will certainly never be as good as Dawn, since doing lessons with Dawn I have gotten so many compliments on my how good my makeup looks. I feel comfortable purchasing makeup either from the drugstore or a more expensive brand because Dawn gave me a good foundation on how to apply the makeup and make it look good. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who wants to learn how or improve their makeup applying skills.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My 1st class usually consist of an assessment of their skill level. This means I will watch you apply your make up from start to finnish. Once you are done I will them put together a curriculum that fits your level of skill.
