Intro to Makeup for Teens (5 hours, $150)

  • Paint School of Makeup 4100 Main Street, Suite 401 Philadelphia United States (map)

Paint is excited to present a one-day learning event for teens ages 12-17.   The schedule combines color theory, make-up tutorials and hands-on practice with an enriching side dish of real life/real world perspective on the pursuit of beauty ideals, and how it effects the way young people see themselves and others.

Teens have developed a passionate interest in the art of makeup as evidenced through the meteoric rise of content related to makeup in social media and in retail outlets.  Beke Beau, headmistress and founder of Paint, has created a unique opportunity for teens to learn about and play with color products in a realistic and healthy way.  This workshop, in addition to being super fun, is an experience that will set your teen on a healthy path to becoming a more knowledgeable and realistic user and consumer of beauty products.

Special topics include:

  • Is makeup good for you? Ingredients and more …

  • Simple, healthy skin care for teens.

  • Social media and makeup – is it for real?

In the Color Play section, campers will learn about color theory, how and why certain makeup colors are chosen, and what will work for them as teens. Makeup Learning Labs cover all the components of basic, age-appropriate makeup application, including eyes, cheeks, lips and skin. 

The day will end with an hour of supervised free makeup play, using products supplied by the Paint School.  Students can use the school’s photo booth to capture their looks – photos can be e-mailed or texted, uploaded to social media, and/or printed as a keepsake of their experience.

In addition to photos, students will receive a gift bag of makeup tools and products to take home.

The workshop is limited to twelve students. The day begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m., with a 30 minute lunch break. Students are asked to bring their lunch. Snacks and water will be provided by the school.
