On Sunday September 11th, I attended AJ Crimson's Beauty Basics class in DC. If you do not know who this awesome Makeup Artist is, you can read more about him on his site (www.ajcrimson.com) and see his work on Instagram. I have been a fan for some time and was excited to attend the class. In addition to demonstrating his skills, he had a very special co-host, Mr. Reggie Wells. Between the both of them, there was a wealth of knowledge shared!
The class was a hands on interactive course and everyone used products that they brought from home. Working on his model, he walked us all through the steps he takes to complete his makeup looks. In addition to makeup beginners, there were quite a few Makeup Artists, including myself, in attendance as well. Although the class was marketed as a "basics" course, I learned new techniques that I will use on my clients. One being the concept of highlight, contour, and flesh tone makeup application and blending. I loved the idea!
The drive to DC, the fee, and the time spent was more than worth it and I look forward to future classes with AJ. In the meantime, I plan to purchase some of his products including the new liquid lipsticks that will launch soon. He previewed them during the class and they were amazing!
