I have been searching for a good makeup classes in Bangalore, to be specific in and around whitefield area. I wanted something like makeup workshop from experts to sharpen my skills. I wanted to know few things like contouring, highlighting and few looks of fashion makeup. And also I wanted something which gets completed in a day or two.
Here I will give my opinions on how my search went.
I google searched for makeup classes and through urban clap also I happened to contact many training centers.
I have narrowed down my search to main courses here, leaving the ones that didn’t find appropriate. I hope it might help you if you are searching for makeup classes.
This is something which is very professional from end to end. They provide professional knowledge, exams at the end of course and also a certificate at the end of it. But the price is way too high. There is no makeup kit / brushes provided.
The only thing which I didn’t find appropriate is, the course fee is nowhere mentioned in the website. I always prefer going with the business that has transparent model.
You can check the website for more info. For fees please call them up, since it is not mentioned in website.
I had called up to inquire about the course. The manager said its Rs.30,000/- for 36 hours. Both weekday and weekend classes were available. But the manager insisted me to join at the head branch(Rajajinagar) of Bangalore because the most experienced teacher teaches at head branch. But it takes me 2 hr to reach there, so I skipped it. Moreover, I couldn’t manage 36 hrs of class. Also, the courses has hell lot of bad reviews in mouthshut. So I didn’t want to take a toll on my hard earned money.
It has few set of courses like makeup, hairstyle etc. Cost of makeup course is Rs.28000/- for 30 hours, told by manager. They had mentioned about 100% placement and stuffs in website which I was not interested anyways. The only thing is they provide only weekday classes. Being a working professional, I preferred weekend classes. So I crossed this off my list. Moreover, the site is not updated and maintained. I had to call them up for information.
And there were few freelance makeup artists who were ready to give a makeup workshop for self grooming in a day but It was difficult to get the reviews of them anywhere in internet. So I didn’t go for them.
Somehow, after searching for 2 days, I found out that MAC has few one-on-one with makeup pro.
This is something which is very appealing because you can choose one look and also the amount is redeemable for the products at MAC. I have no doubt in skills of makeup artists at MAC and moreover I am getting a chance to pick up the products that I paying for teaching me the skills. So this is quick workshop kind of class.
MAC has many plans at different cost in this. I chose WEDDING TROUSSEAU SERVICE. In this, I had to pay Rs.12500/- and the MAC pro would teach me three looks that I want and also give me a face chart so that I can create the look later as well. At the end I can pick up the products of MAC worth Rs.12500/- . Also the specialty about this service is, they provide complimentary wedding trousseau box.
So, my experience with MAC was very good and it was worth! I will write a detailed post on my experience with MAC one-on-one with makeup pro.
