I went to a Sephora Beauty Class… Here are my thoughts

In case didn’t know, Sephora (in the U.S.) offers free beauty classes to its Beauty Insiders (this is a rewards program and it is free to sign up). Depending on your city, there will probably more classes and availability. Even though San Antonio, TX is a big city, it’s kinda a small town too. Finding open classes here is hard. I have to check months in advance hoping to find something and that classes are getting offered in my area. I finally did it! I swear this felt like when I finally able to snatch some of Kylie Jenner’s products when she was still doing the very limited releases and stuff sold out in seconds. Ridiculous.

The first class I attended was on a Wednesday evening, 6:30 p.m. and I went after work. This class took place while the store was open and full of people getting their makeup, browsing the products, and it was busy. They set us up at the front of the store, standing, and a little cramped to be honest. I wasn’t loving it. We were there to learn more about Winged Eyeliner. I suck at Winged Eyeliner. Suck. They had a variety of products available to us (all came from the testers around the store), mirrors, wipes, and also brow products because as I found out that day, you should do your eyebrows before you do your winged eyeliner.

There is a lot of measurement involved in winged eyeliner. From your nose to your eye to your eyebrow and from your eye to your eyebrow, and from your eyebrow to your nose, all to get an even looking line. Once I actually started trying to do my eyeliner, it was frustrating because a lot of the products we were provided with weren’t new, they hadn’t been used over and over again and getting any even color required me going over it multiple times. I think that and the standing are my only cons. The staff is super friendly and supportive, they are encouraging and make you believe that you’re doing amazing even when you have eyeliner way past your eyebrow. In the end, I actually managed a decent looking winged eyeliner and I was really proud of myself.

The second time, I went for Contour & Highlighting. This one was on a Saturday morning before the store opened, so it was a lot more organized, we had chairs, and access to the lighted mirrors, and a lot more people helping us out. I really enjoyed this class, and it was great to get tips for my skin type. Did you know people with dry skin should use more cream products than powder? No? Neither did I!

If you’re a beginner like me, I highly recommend you give these classes a go! You can learn more here.

  • Last weekend I had the chance to visit the @woodenshoefarm and it is one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen 🌷 Nothing better than being surrounded by tulips celebrating my 24th birthday.

  • Thank you @pixibeauty for all the eye goodies!! I am already a fan of their endless silky eye pen formula so can’t wait to try these shades. Today I used the Eye Bright Liner and the Eye Define Waterline to tightline. I really like the nude shade as it is very natural. Have you tried any of these?

  • I had been thinking about getting this @laneige_us lip mask for so long! As someone guilty of picking at her lips (thanks anxiety), they’re always a mess and just a hint of dryness enables me to pick at them. I’ve been using this for the last couple of nights, and I love waking up to hydrated lips πŸ‘„ Have you tried this or anything similar? How do you care for your lips?

Llevaba con muchas ganas de probar esta mascarilla para los labios! La he usado las ΓΊltimas noches y me encanta poderme poner labial sin resequedad. Ya la probaron?

  • N E W | @urbandecaycosmetics Naked Heat vs @tartecosmetics Tartelette Toasted [link in bio]πŸ”₯Since the release of these two palettes, I went back and forth between which one I wanted. I thought they were a lot more similar than they actually are. If you swipe left you’ll be able to see swatches and how the overall color palette is different! Are you a toasted or a heat?
