Prept might be known for all things personal style, but did you know that Prept also provides virtual beauty consultations as well? Prept employs a network of professional makeup artists across the U.S. who are ready to help you put your best face forward. Keep reading to find out 5 signs it might be time for a virtual makeup lesson, and what better time than as we transition into a new season and warmer-weather. As the weather changes your beauty routine should too!
1. "I still have makeup from several years ago" (i.e. the infamous Naked palette)
If you have old makeup products, brushes, beauty blenders, etc. you're not alone! Most of us don't want to admit how long we’ve had our foundation, eyeshadow palette, lipstick bottle, etc. Makeup has an expiration date for a reason. Your older products are not doing your beauty routine or your skin justice, trust us. New, innovative beauty brands are popping up every day and the tried and true brands are coming out with even better products. So why still hold on to the old?
We know walking into Sephora, Ulta, or other makeup stores can be intimidating. There are always so many new products and salespeople trying to sell you things you're not sure you even need. One of the benefits of our Prept virtual makeup lessons is getting matched with a with a makeup artist 1:1 that will evaluate your your makeup bag, beauty routine, complexion, and your other unique preferences to recommend the right products for you. Whether you want to stay on budget for your beauty, switch to cleaner beauty products, or find some new shades for Spring, our Pros will help you meet your unique beauty goals. The focus consultation is providing education first! Your makeup artist will not only recommend specific products for your skin and face shape but will also explain how to use the products. When you learn how to prep your skin and apply your products correctly, you’ll see a major improvement in your overall makeup application skills!
2. "I've never learned how to correctly apply the products I have"
Makeup application is hard! It can be overwhelming to scroll through social media watching makeup tutorials in order to find methods that work for you. And who has the time to do this? At the same time, we all can remember that time we got our makeup done, looked 100%, felt confident, got so many compliments, and looked amazing in photos...which that keeps us wishing we had the techniques of a makeup artist.
Learning key techniques and building an everyday makeup routine that allows you to show up feeling confident is a lifelong skill that women of every age can learn. It’s never too late to hone your makeup skills! Our virtual makeup lessons offer a convenient, enjoyable, affordable, personalized way to learn key skills working 1:1 with a Makeup Artist Pro virtually. Get step-by-step explanation for prepping your skin, applying makeup, and setting it in place. If you’ve already perfected your everyday makeup routine, consider gifting Prept to someone who could use a few makeup pointers! Trust us, they will thank you!
3. "I am not sure if I'm wearing the right shades and what colors work best for me" (i.e. I just have makeup questions!)
One of the main reasons to shop for makeup in person is to get color matched. You may want to switch foundation brands but aren’t sure what shade you should purchase. One of the best things about a Prept makeup lesson is that you can actually get color matched virtually! Just let your artist know the brands and shades of foundation you’ve used in the past and they can recommend similar brands and suggest the right shades to try. Our Prept Pros are professional makeup artists with years of experience in the industry. They can also recommend blush, eyeshadow, and lip colors that will complement your complexion and style!
4. "I want a simple, easy makeup routine" (i.e. 5-minute natural glowy look)
This is what we call #goals. We're all busy and running around in the morning per our kids, jobs, life in general so makeup can become the afterthought. We're here to tell you that you can do it all, including your makeup in quick, simple way that works for you. Working with a professional makeup artist through Prept will give you the confidence to build a simple, foundational makeup routine that you can master in no time. This will save you time, stress, and effort during your morning routine.
5. "I want to try new brands but don't know where to start"
With products and brands launching and going viral on social media outfits daily, it can be hard to keep up! Which ones are worth trying? Which ones work for you? Which ones are worth the splurge vs. have a totally acceptable, affordable dupe? During a Prept virtual makeup lesson you’re bound to discover new products that you’ve never tried before.
