"Hugs" are designed to help you choose Serenity + Scott cosmetics and other products to purchase, in a focused, relaxed environment. Consider it a mini-lesson where we create a look to help you streamline and make great purchasing decisions. Purchase 200.00 or more and the consult is just 25.00. Lightweight, breathable products. A pop of glamour, a touch of polish for your every day best.

Private lessons are a  more in-depth way to focus on exactly what you want to learn. Our time together will leave you with a new confidence in your skills, and the ability to be comfortable playing and experimenting more. You will receive a face chart to take home with you, outlining any products and basic instructions so that you can practice what is taught. Please bring your makeup and tools so I can teach you how to utilize them better. 

My clients tell me how much they love coming to a private studio where all the attention is on them, and the atmosphere is comfortable and cozy. Your questions are always important to me, and giving information that is easy to assimilate into your routine is my goal. I want to take away the intimidation surrounding cosmetics and makeup application!

You will receive a list of recommended products for your kit, but the class experience is available to you with or without those products.

Students will experience a variety of classes each day, ranging from demonstration style, classroom instruction to hands-on workshops in which they will each be working on their own model(s). Classes will include time in the photography studio learning how to adjust your makeup techniques and getting immediate feedback through photo shoots both in studio and on location.
Select students will also be invited to observe/assist behind-the-scenes for client work booked through our studio.

Very low teacher to student ratio ensures that you will receive one-on-one attention and training throughout the entire course. Guest teachers will occasionally be invited to teach as well, to give you a variety of experiences. Field trips to relevant sites may also be part of the curriculum, depending on availability.

Full day mentorship: 450.00

Spend a full day with me, in the studio and on-location to learn more about a typical day of work. There really is no such thing as typical, so we will choose a day that best suits your needs and what you want to learn.

You can choose to spend your full day at the studio learning techniques and focused on education, or we can spend part of the day in-studio, and a portion with you coming on a "ride-along" as I work for clients outside the studio. I construct these full days of learning around student needs, so get in touch and we will talk about how to customize this for your needs. This can also be split into two half-days of education if that works better for your schedule.
