What you'll do

I'm so excited to have you join me in this experience of minimal beauty.
My class is different from the YouTube tutorials and experiences at cosmetic counters with sales people trying to sell you a million products which you will never use!

In our 90 minute class we will:

* 30 min Class Introduction + Storytelling.
* 30 min Step by step instructions of simple everyday makeup application.
* 10 min Step by step instructions of smoky eye makeup application (or day to evening look)
* 20 min Q&A to answer your questions.

My goal is to teach you to do 5-10 minute everyday makeup and minimize the amount of products you use. The instruction is simple, practical, with easy to replicate techniques. I will also teach you how to buy cosmetics at department stores and not feel intimidated by sales people.

Plus interesting stories about my makeup artistry journey!

Join me online, have all your makeup and brushes ready, and bring a cocktail!

I’ve been a Makeup Artist for 25 years in San Francisco. I’ve trained with incredible artists such as Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier and worked for prestigious companies such as Neiman Marcus and French companies Guerlain and Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ve been published in magazines and work as a creative director in photo shoots around the world. But my real passion is working with the everyday woman that’s looking for a simple and easy beauty routine.

The Minimalist Makeup Artist! My style of artistry is minimal and natural. I focus on authenticity and realness. For me, makeup is about enhancing, not masking, or trying to become someone you’re not. Be real!

I'm a storyteller and I can't wait to tell you my own personal story as an immigrant child from Nicaragua who overcame poverty to dedicate my life to beauty. IG:@mariacalderon.art

Maria provided a safe and comfortable environment for me, my mom, and aunties to bond over learning about skincare and makeup. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about what she does. She answered our questions and provided helpful info tailored to our own personal needs. I took away a lot on how to take care of my skin and use makeup to bring out my natural beauty in healthy and more efficient way. Looking forward to future sessions with her. Thanks Maria.

Thanks for this wonderful experience. It was a nice way for my sisters, niece, and I to bond together and learn about makeup.

I’m really glad we got together for this experience. Thank you! I liked the format—fluid, lots of time for dialog, questions and learning. I’ll be sure to follow up with another session after we’ve had some time to practice what we learned.

The experience with Maria was inspiring! She gave great tips and knowledge about how to implement a minimalist skincare and makeup routine. I definitely advise this course if you have no idea of how to get started.

This was a great experience! Maria took a lot of the mystery out of make-up application and she provided lots of helpful suggestions and reasonably priced product recommendations. I learned a lot and enjoyed the discussion with Maria and the other guests.

Maria was knowledgeable and had good energy. She did not push any products, but did give recommendations. She answered everyone's questions satisfactorily, so I felt that there was enough individual attention in a group class. I learned a lot from the class. Also, I found Maria's story and mission to empower women made this experience that much better :)
