Join us for this incredible workshop for all things COLOR. Do you wonder why your images and clients don’t look like what you see in the magazines? Maybe you are not getting the looks that are in your mind on to the face you are working on and need the guidance to achieve it. When you are trained like a painter and have the skills of editing your own work, you can have those dreamy images come to life! Jessie Powers is the MASTER of color theory and will share with you a whole new way of approaching every makeup you design and execute. Stephen Dimmick pulls away all intimidation and gracefully guides you to the direction you need to feel confident in beauty and fashion editorials.
MARCH 20 & 21 – JESSIE POWERS
THEORY – As makeup artists we often have an instinctive grasp of color. We may be drawn to particular color themes but not know why, we may be able to match skin tone exactly but fail to know how foundation is made. We may have talent but we may not a have the roadmap that will lead us to more insightful work and the evolution of our skill.
In this class you will learn about the fundamentals of Global skin tones as it is seen through the eyes of fine artists and painters. You will learn how to make your own foundation or adjust any foundations in your kit. You will leave with an understanding of how to do more with less and you will find inspiration in fine art, not just what your peers are posting on Instagram.
In addition, this class will cover how color themes are used in different types of makeup work – when to use your brights and when to keep things monochromatic. You will have an opportunity to see how lighting and color temperature impact your color choices and how to use intense color in creative makeup with confidence and precision.
Drawing her inspiration from art direction, music and the world around her, she loves to play with color and texture and enjoys blurring the lines between traditional and avant-garde takes on beauty. Her specialty is that clean skin or the ‘no-makeup’ look.
Jessie was drawn to beauty at a young age and used to mix her own makeup concoctions using a chemistry set she received as a gift. Having grown up with feminine style icons of the late 70’s and early 80’s, including women like Linda Carter, Joan Collins, Linda Evans, Grace Jones, and Cyndi Lauper, she developed a sense of beauty and style that was anything but subtle. Her teaching style is very interactive and she works one on one with students so they leave confident and full of new tips and tricks.

Stephen grew up in a narrow minded Air Force coal mining town by the name of Ipswich in Queensland, Australia. He ran away from home at the age of 15 and moved to Brisbane to be with his fellow freaks. He took up hairdressing in the midst of a crazy night life. Being heavily influenced by the likes of Visage & Culture Club, makeup took a main role in his identity although it took several years before he actually realized that makeup could actually be a career.
After many years of traveling around the world Stephen took home in New York at the age of 28 in 1997. And it has been a long and slow rise to his current place in the world of makeup artistry working for the likes of Italian Vogue and Numero. He is heavily influenced by the likes of Richard Sharah, Maria Belt, Val Garland, Way Bandy, Regis Kevyn Aucoin and Heidi Morawetz.
