Natalie took the time to explain my skin tone to me and what the meant for makeup and which colors would look best on me. She went through everything that would work best for my skin type to include moisturizer and a skincare regime.

Natalie is up on all the things popular with teenagers, but also able to speak to what's appropriate for forty-somethings. It was super fun to play with colors, products, techniques, and brushes. At her suggestion, I've added a couple of techniques and products into my routine that make a huge difference. She had a couple of "you must always" points that I've taken to heart. Now I think of her every time I put on makeup.

You’d be so proud of me today, Natalie! I finally got the right makeup for me. I did everything you said and I’m really proud of how it came out. And I feel more confident on shopping for the RIGHT makeup now.

I did my makeup this morning before the photoshoot and it took less than 5 minutes and I’m super happy with the result! Thank you so much again. This was the first time in my life I was confident about what I was doing!

what's next

Day 1

defining your makeup style

How can you learn how to do makeup if you haven't actually defined your preferred look and style?

This module teaches you how to pinpoint an everyday makeup style that you will use as the basis for the course (and well beyond the course). 

Day 2

unlock your skincare routine

Artists don't apply paint to a raw canvas, and we shouldn't apply makeup to a bare face. In day 2, we're going over skin prep for makeup and undertones.

When you know your skin type and undertone, you'll know exactly what products (and formulations) to avoid and/or use.

Module 2 is foundational sans foundation.

Day 3

master your complexion 

In this module, I outline the five elements that make up the "complexion" makeup category: foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, and highlighter.

By the end of this lesson, you'll know how to mix and match these elements to create an everyday makeup look that works for you, your face shape, and your lifestyle.

Day 4

All About the Eyes

Did you know that too much eyeliner can make your eyes appear smaller? Or that our eyes are asymmetric, which means we might have to do both eyes differently?

In this module, we'll identify your eye shape and talk about why certain types of eye makeup will work for you (or not work for you), and we'll analyze which colors to use on the eye using basic color theory.

Day 5

creating your Perfect Lip look

So many lipsticks, so little time. But finding your "perfect" lipstick shade isn't really as hard as it seems. 

In this module, I'll walk you through all of the different lipstick formulations out there and share why you might want to use one over the other. I'll also help you identify your perfect nude, everyday, and bold lip shades!

frequently asked questions


Learn Makeup in 5 Days is not designed or intended to teach you elaborate, fanciful, full-face makeup. There are enough of those types of courses, books, and makeup tutorials out there doing that.

Learn Makeup in 5 Days is designed to give you a basic, yet foundational understanding of how to shop for and apply makeup in a way that works specifically for you. By the end of the 5 days, you will know what products and colors work best for you and how to apply them for an everyday, classic makeup look. 


Because I've condensed so much makeup education into 5 days, every single day is jam-packed with knowledge and downloads.

The welcome module itself is like a mini course!

Because of this, refunds are not possible.

If you have questions about what you will get out of the course or want to know more, please reach out to me. I can help you decide if this is the course you need right now.

I'd also encourage you to check out my Instagram, Blog, and Podcast to get a taste of what my teaching style is like. 


You will have 24/7 access to the course for one calendar year from the date you purchase it.

Call me crazy, but I believe that if you pay to learn how to wear makeup in 5 days, you shouldn't have to rush through it or lose access after you go through the lessons one time.

I do suggest downloading the resources to your device so that you have access to them offline. 


I do not teach contouring and baking in this course. Those are theatrical makeup effects and they aren't good habits for the makeup beginner.

I do however, outline in my book why/when/who may want to consider contouring and baking and what exactly it is so that you can make an educated decision as to whether or not these theatrical makeup techniques suit your everyday makeup style.

While I don't deep dive specifically into how to achieve a winged eyeliner (this requires more than 5 days of practice if you're a beginner), I do go over different eyeliner techniques that pair nicely with your eye shape. You might discover that winged liner is not even right for you! 


I've enabled discussions in the course, which I monitor and respond to regularly.
You're also welcome to email me your course-specific questions at which I will answer during business hours. 


Once you sign up, you will be prompted to create a login for the course. As soon as you log in, you'll have access to all of the course materials: all of the video modules, downloadable workbooks, and bonus items! 

This is a self-paced course that is designed to be done in 5 days. But, of course, the timing and pacing is totally up to you. If you'd rather do it all in one day, you can do that. If you want to go through one module per week, you can do that, too. Whatever suits you and your schedule!


If you are a budding makeup artist who doesn't know anything about makeup and want to learn the basics, yes — this course is the perfect launchpad.

You do not need to spend thousands of dollars to learn basic makeup from makeup schools.

If you are a pro and want to hone and refine your skills, check out my pro shop here.


Because this is a self-paced course, you are in the driver's seat. If you have the time to do the lessons each day, great. If you don't, feel free to dive in whenever you have time to do so. You get to decide!

However, this course is intentionally designed to cover the basics in a way that will not overwhelm beginners. I promise, even if you have very little experiences shopping for or applying makeup, you aren't going to get left behind. 


This course does not include 1:1 coaching. If you are looking for high-touch, 1:1 makeup coaching, please check out Create Your Signature Look.

You can, however, ask me questions as you go through the course. I will be monitoring my email inbox and personally responding to all questions during my regular business hours!


Unlike other makeup classes that are subtly (or blatantly) promoting their own brands or services, I am not sponsored by any outside brands and have remained brand-agnostic since starting my business in 2014.

There's absolutely no way I would feel comfortable teaching you makeup if I was sponsored by a brand or receiving free product because I would feel obliged to use those products or promote them in my educational offerings.

I work with products at all price points. I do not want you to go into debt buying makeup, nor do I want you to use sub-par products. 

The lessons for days 2-5 include a PDF download that lists my favorite products in those categories, none of which are sponsored in any way. You can rest easy knowing that I'm not here to sell you anything except makeup knowledge. It's just what I believe is right!

Makeup is a deeply personal journey.  I have worked tirelessly over the years to put together an easy-to-understand course that effectively teaches you everything you need to know about the basics of makeup and skincare.

Each lesson in the course, including the introduction module, contains a lot of valuable content. Therefore, even if you only participate for one day, you'll have access to tons of value, as well as the entire framework for the course.

For this reason, I do not offer refunds, exchanges, or transfers. Please review the course syllabus above to make sure this is a good fit for where you are in your makeup journey and what you want to learn.

Oh Natalie! Thank you a 1000 times! I thought I reached an age where I know what I am doing but Ha! I learned SO MUCH! Can’t wait to get some products that actually are what I need and to use them. Your heart is beautiful and so is your talent!
