If you’re a big fan of makeup, then you’re going to love CHICSTUDIOS! Based in New York, this leading makeup artistry school, provides an array of fashion-forward techniques, practices through course instruction, live video lessons and more.
And here’s something more exciting for you beauty junkies, the brands they use in their makeup studies and makeup kits are: Makeup Forever, NARS, Laura Mercier, BH Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics, Eve Pearl, Graftobian, Cinema Secrets, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox and many others. Drool-worthy brands, huh?
I’m also thrilled to be attending their 5-year anniversary event in the coming weeks (my very first event since I moved here in the US!) and meet the team and my blogger friends Tasha (Belleza Kisses) and Leslie (Bravenezz). So watch out for lots of snaps here and on my Instagram. In the mean time, CHICSTUDIOS is giving us a sneak peek into their studio and what’s it like to be one of their students!
CHICSTUDIOS NYC takes great pride in offering premium, hands-on education in the field of professional makeup artistry. Through either the 4-Week Professional Makeup Course or a 5-Week Master Makeup Course. Upon graduation of one of these courses, each student is prepared and ready to work as a makeup artist in the ever-growing industries of beauty, fashion, retail or television.
How does CHIC do it? Here’s a quick look at a few of the exciting things that go on in the day of the life of A CHICSTUDIOS Student! To learn more about the specifics of CHICSTUDIOS, take a look at the online catalog or request more information here.
Beginning Of The Day:
A CHIC day class begins at around 10:30am with a review of the previous day’s topic and notes. CHIC instructors ensure that any questions are answered and then move on to the topic of the current day. (for example: evening makeup with false lashes, or mature makeup and skin care.)
Demonstrations and Practice!
It’s demo time!! Starting around 11:30am, after reviewing the materials and notes, the students gather around the CHIC Instructor to watch a live demonstration of the pertinent topic.
Around 12:30pm, the students partner up and work on each other to apply makeup like their instructor showcased during the demo.
Each student is provided a workstation, to set up their makeup kits so they can perfect their techniques!
Lunch is a great time to get to know your fellow students, and talk about the fun-facts in class or what to prepare for in the afternoon of makeup application.
End of Day Review!
At 4:00pm, CHIC Instructors begin to wrap up by reviewing all the materials covered in class that day.
