Beautiful You: Color & Clothing (2 hrs)
What colors bring out the best in you?  Look healthier and more vibrant by learning how to select clothing colors that flatter your skin, hair and eye coloring! In this virtual class, you’ll provide a photo of your face to the instructor prior to class which will be used to determine if you’re warmer or cooler in coloring. During class, you’ll be able to watch your appearance change as the instructor virtually “drapes” your photo in different colors. You’ll also receive general recommendations for eye shadow, blush and lipstick colors based on your features.

IN-PERSON CLASS: No photos are needed in advance for the in-person version of the class. Instead, students will be draped in different color fabrics to see how color changes appearance.
