I have never felt like I knew how to apply makeup well. It’s one of those things I feel I didn’t learn in the “Becoming a Woman” classes of life. Putting on Pantyhose was another, but luckily, I’ve decided there’s no reason to do that anymore…
Enter Skilloop, the website that connects you with local experts who are ready and willing to teach just about anything you can think of. When the nice people from Skilloop asked me if I’d like to get a makeup lesson and have a video crew document it, you can bet I said Yes instantly.
I met up with Carsen LaBella, an adorable and amazing makeup artist – and great teacher! She and I spent a lovely afternoon applying makeup and I not only learned some new application skills, I also got some great insider tips on what products to buy and where. (Hint: Sephora really does carry most of the stuff you’ll need – and Ladies, you must start using a brush for eyeshadow.)
Skilloop’s website is very easy to navigate and super intuitive to use, something I really appreciate. You can search by the type of thing you want to learn, like Samba Dance Lessons or a Private Fire Breathing Lesson (because those group classes are filled with nutjobs), or something as crazy as makeup lessons, like I did. You can see if the Expert Teacher is available the days you are and if they’re geographically desirable or not – and then you just book through Skilloop.com. Easy Peasy.
I highly recommend trying it out! As Moms, we need to promote Lifelong Learning to our kids. Besides, who among couldn’t learn something new? Go for it!
Or why not sign up as an Expert? We all know something that other people wish they knew, too. The best diaper changing method, how to get out those tough laundry stains, or how to rock some SEO – these are things you probably know how to teach, and I can promise there are people who want to know. Give it a try!
And check out the video – I’m pretty excited for you to see it!
