Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

I learned essentials about simple but effective make-up and I heard the story of an inspiring woman and artist.

she is a great teacher, very well spoken, clear and engaging.

I used to be overwhelmed and intimidated by makeup - I wouldn’t even know where to start - but now I feel relaxed and excited about putting on makeup!

Loved the approach, no speaking mistakes, clear graphics, and focus on easy, but i also would have loved a focus on the harder things and why about them.

I don't like that you changed the parameters of the pictures which show the model "before" and "after" . The "After" picture of the first model [18:06] is darker (more contrasted?), eyes, hair, lips are darker, eyebrows are different. To see the difference and compare the results we should have the same parameters of the picture.

Please tell me where is can get a complexion pencil at used in the video? I don'f find it in the Bobbi Brown website,


I'm surprised she didn't sealed the makeup with spray with the first model, specially for a long wear. I also wished she would have picked people with hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation since it's a masterclass, although I loved her tips, I think it's more of an ideal skin versus most people who either suffer of discoloration, big pores, etc. I hope future masterclasses include more complex skins.

I have a lot of black spots (melasma) on my skin because of hormonal and sun issues. This class was an important step to understand how to cover them without turning my face into a mask. But it would be really great to have a make up class specialised on hyper pigmentation issues like melasma (unfortunately, very common among latin women).

The principles are great but I wish she had chosen some models that aren't so perfect!! I'd love to have seen what Bobbi can do for wrinkled skin, blotchy red skin, spotty skin - the ones that really need make-up help!!

Sophie C.

As she was applying the makeup to Molly, I couldn't see the difference at first but wow! She looked stunning and so simple! (And yes she did look stunning before)


my only criticism is - one use disposable sponges. We need to have tools that are long lasting not more plastic waste xx

Hi! I can't download the workbook of any of her lessons. Where can I find it?

Weird, you can still see the pencil lines on her chin after she blended it in? Also, it would have been so much better if she had a model with more realistic skin, not a model with perfect skin. It’s hard to relate to this.

Will there be a recommended products list? I would love to know what brand those pencils are.
