[MUSIC PLAYING] - What I've learned by teaching this class is that, yes, I'm a makeup artist, yes, I like to teach technique, but I've also learned how much I really care about sharing stories and telling you my journey so it will encourage you on your own. My advice to all you guys out there, whether you're a future makeup artist or passionate about what you're doing, with a little bit of-- know that anything is possible. - That's a wrap. - You have to work hard, and you have to just keep at it. I'm running on fumes. - I bet. - And just realize, you have to be nice to people. If you're not nice, no one's going to want to be around you. And if you are not the first one jumping up to say, I got this, I could do it, you're not going to get rehired. Even when you're on a set, if you are just sitting there on your phone, and no one's doing anything, guess what-- you should not just be sitting there. Someone might need some help. You know, the models should have maybe a glass of water. The photographer might need some help. Maybe there's a dog sitting around the set. Ask if you could take the dog out. Like, just get out of your own way, and just be the best person you could be in your life and at work. What I hope you do after you watch this class is watch it again and again because guess what-- it takes practice, it takes time to learn the techniques. Go back, look in the mirror, practice, grab someone, do their makeup. Practice. And I hope that what I've taught you, you'll be able to take and just become a better version of yourself through health and wellness, through careers, through makeup, through everything. Thank you so much for watching. [MUSIC PLAYING]

I love how real she is and that her goal is to help every woman feel beautiful in her own skin. So natural. Loved it!

Loved the class. Loved the looks, the tips, the simplicity of it all. Loved, specially, the good person and extremely competent and focused professional-woman-entrepenour-mother-human being. Congratulations! You have a big fan in Brasil!

I loved this class! I tried some of the techniques already and I will continue to look back at lessons for reminds and practice.

I love Bobbi's story. I look at make up the way she does, and during this time of Instagram style, heavy layered makeup, it's nice to know that I am not alone in my make up style. Thank you

Thank you Bobbi. I am in my 50's and I wish I had seen this when I was younger. I love the use of bronzer and bought some oil today to wear while not wearing make-up. My kids noticed my glow.

A good course if you don't know much about makeup, but if you already know the basics, there's no need to do this course.

A fellow student

This was a fun class. I have never paid much attention to makeup until I got older. It does enhance. Still, I have always loved Bobbi’s vibe about beauty, her personality and skin care products. Got some great tips on this masterclass I will use and share. Only thing... I would have liked to know how to find those thin foundation sticks and foundation oil. Thanks for the class Bobbi!

Thank you, Bobbi, for your honesty, for caring, for sharing your story, and for encouraging each person to be a mensch.

Loved this course, which I'd watched 20 years ago! My big take away - avoid the trends and chose what looks pretty.

As a young lady in her mid-twenties, I am embarrassed to say this but I had no idea how to do make-up! I always kind of wanted to learn, so I figured this was the best time to try and get it done! Loved the class, the way she describes everything, and the demonstrations on all types of women! I also loved how she kept emphasizing the value of the natural beauty. Great class, I learned. bunch! Thank you!!!

This is really a good one! I have learnt a lot during this class and hope I can be someone that can inspire others too. Thanks Bobbi!

Bobbi is a stand-up person, hard worker, ingenue with the make-up brush and I so enjoyed this class. Will apply to my daily and night-out (when they return) routines!

A fellow student

I thought Bobby's class was really great. I respect the way she thinks about make-up -- just wish I had her hand.
