Whether you’re a makeup beginner or an old hand at makeup, there will always be areas that you’re not clear about, or are too scared to try. What better way to rectify this than taking makeup classes from professionals who do makeup on a daily basis for a living?

Thankfully, there are makeup classes and courses in Singapore for you to pick up the required skills for personal makeup or even professional makeup.

Whether it is to better utilise the eyeshadow palette you’ve bought on impulse, or to up your makeup game, a makeup artist can answer all of these questions and more.

There’s a reason, after all, why most brides choose to hire a makeup artist to help them feel their prettiest on their wedding day.

We’ve put together a list of makeup classes available in Singapore that will help you make the most out of the products you already own (some of these lessons are free of charge too!)

M.A.C Cosmetics

Makeup Classes Singapore Mac

We don’t need a blurb here to tell you what M.A.C Cosmetics is all about. They’re so well-known for their makeup that their foundation shades and brush numbers are used as the benchmark standard that most people compare every other brand against. Who knew that they actually provided free makeup demonstrations as well as longer, paid classes?

M.A.C’s walk-in demos are in-store product demonstrations that you can request for on the spot, depending on their artists’ availability. Learn the makeup techniques that you can use on a specific facial feature, or how to use those tricky contouring products – it’s up to you!

M.A.C has a total of 11 types of complimentary makeup services that their M.A.C artists can provide for you in-store. Check out their website to see a complete list of in-store services that they provide.

If you’d like something a little more in-depth than walk-in demos, M.A.C also provides classes with a M.A.C Pro. These classes will teach you how to create a full face make-up look that ranges from work-appropriate, to theatrical, to bridal. Besides the “M.A.C Technique” class, all other classes are not redeemable for M.A.C products.

Only 1-to-1 classes are available.

Course fees: Free for demos and S$50 to S$180 for in-depth makeup lessons
Duration: Varies from 30 – 90 minutes
How to book: Enquire or make an appointment at any M.A.C store. Get more information on their website
