Sonia Kashuk Makeup 101 Class

On July 27th, I was among the 75 beauty bloggers picked to participate in Sonia Kashuk's Makeup 101 Class. The makeup tutorial was the most informative, step-by-step makeup session I have ever attended. Sonia Kashuk lead the tutorial, with attendees engaging in a hands-on experience, applying makeup on themselves and creating their look, with the Eye on Neutral Instructional Eye Shadow Palette (02) or Eye on Fall Instructional Eye Shadow Palette (03).

We first started the class with cleansing our faces with Yes to Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes, $7.99, and removing makeup with Sonia Kashuk's Remove Eye Makeup Remover, $9.99, applying Yes to Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturizer with SPF 30, $19.99, and
Sonia Kashuk's Primer Vitamin Serum, $17.99.

We went through applying foundation and concealer, blush, highlighter, eyeliner, curling lashes, mascara, defining the brows, eye shadow, lip gloss and lip liner. The most important lessons I learned were what different cosmetic brushes to use! It makes such a difference to use the right kind of brushes!

I was very proud of my look, which featured the neutral eye shadow palette and Luxury Lip Color in
Bordeaux and Ultra Shine Sheer Lip Gloss in Luscious. I was getting plenty of compliments at the party I attended afterwards. My friends had thought I had gotten a makeover, not knowing I had done it all myself!

At the end of the session, we were able to take home all the master products and tools at our makeup station! There was a Sonia Kashuk Ultimate Weekender Bag, $24.99, next to my station to carry all my beloved new beauty essentials!

You can find all of Sonia Kashuk's master products and tools at Target stores and at
