1. What can one expect from the master class?

Attendees can expect a fun evening of beauty that will not only arm them with new products, tips and tricks to make them feel more beautiful in their lives, but give them that added boost of confidence that they’ve been looking for. Also with refreshments and snacks, its a going to be a great afterwork event for you and your girlfriends!

2. How will this class differ from others in the beauty market?

To my knowledge, there is no makeup artist that is specifically catering to the beauty needs and concerns of South Asian/Indian women in a masterclass format. So, this class is not only the first of its kind but really an opportunity for me to reach more women with what I have learned being in the industry for more than 15 years.

3. What are some of the tips KC will cover?

This first class is a MAKEUP 101 class. So we’re starting with the basics…Finding the right foundation for your skin and how to apply it. We’re touching on the biggest trend in makeup now, highlighting and contouring. Then we’ll finish off with a professional look to carry you through the day!

4. How important is it for women to learn a few makeup tips to enhance their life/beauty?

VERY! Power…through beauty! It really comes down to confidence. Looking good often translates into feeling good. Beauty can give you that armor to go out into the world and conquer it! And often Indian women have these incredible jobs, all the brain power and business acumen they need to be successful in those jobs, but they don’t look the part. I think there’s a misconception that it’s hard or takes a lot of time to do makeup in the morning. But the reality is that it doesn’t. In five to 10 minutes, women can apply their makeup, be out the door, and have all the confidence they need to get that promotion.

5. Do you need to be a makeup junkie or professional to attend?

Absolutely not! We want this class to serve as an introduction to beauty for beginners, and for the beauty junkies, it’ll still be a great way for them to learn about great products and how to use them to enhance their beauty even more!
