With all of these amazing new techniques Madeline decided to start teaching her own makeup class. Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending her makeup class called Makeup Essentials by Madeline Dupuis at Joie de Vivre. Upon arriving to the class you are provided with everything you need to take notes. She goes very in depth of each and every product she uses and why she uses it. She also asks the group what specific things we were interested in learning which was great because everyones needs were met. We were allowed to get up close and personal with the model to see exactly what she was doing and what products were used. After finishing up we were encouraged to check out the products and take pictures of anything we were interested in. She also provides refreshments and goody bags! Overall this class is amazing for beginners up to professional makeup artists because she will touch base with each individual person.

Lastly, if you have 5 or more people interested in taking her class you can even book a private class with you and all of your friends.
