Makeup Artist Series: Color Correction & Shade Matching

Hi Bellas,

It's been a while since I've done a segment in the MUA Series.  After meeting many of you during IMATS and the MUA you always say that I inspired you in your careers especially through my teaching videos.  As you all know, I host monthly makeup meetups where it's pretty much free education/networking/inspiration amongst fellow MUA/Junkies.  I thought I'd do a recap on the class since this is a topic I get a lot of questions about.
