FREE Online Make Up For Ever Class

I was informed that MUFE offered a FREE online course on how to do makeup inspired by the 1920's. I thought it was a gimmick but it wasn't and I left the class with a few great tips. The class is held on a website called Skillshare which allows people and businesses to create classes that can be offered both free or paid. You do however have to create an account and it can be created using your email account or by linking it to Facebook or Twitter. The best part is that you are able to upload your "project" or homework from the class which is a great way to get feedback on your technique. 


The class was given by "JESSIE POWERS, she is the Managing Educator for North America. A veteran of MAKE UP FOR EVER since 2000, Jessie Powers brings her passion for artistry and transformation to her work.  Drawing inspiration from atmosphere, art direction and music, she loves to play with color and texture and enjoys blurring the lines between traditional and avant-garde takes on beauty.  Jessie’s make up philosophy is simple: “Do what makes you happy and keep your mind open to all possibilities. If you want to wear red glitter at age 80 – you should. Make up is transformative and powerful but it can also be frivolous and fun.”

I really enjoyed her demo and the fact that she did it on herself. I know that not many women are comfortable with being makeup free on camera, especially MUAs. I'm used to seeing a demo on a model applied by the MUA. She was straight forward, friendly, and full of great tidbits that are guaranteed to make your life easier.
Here is a Class Overview:
"Learn how you can incorporate beauty from a bygone era into your make up without it looking costume like.  In this course, we’ll teach you how to create a strong smoky eye, defined brows, and apply faux lashes reminiscent of the makeup style from the 1920s.   The look will be completed with a modern lip technique and texture.
In this class you will learn how to:
  • Create a 20s inspired look using a smoky eye variation and sculpted brow
  • Apply and shape faux lashes in a way that will be most flattering to your eye make up
