When you don’t need a full face of foundation, you can use a tinted moisturizer instead. Demonstrating on a medium skin tone, Bobbi applies tinted moisturizer and shows how you can then use your foundation and concealer for touch-ups, creating a spotless look with a healthy glow.

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

It was an interesting class with some good videos especally at the end but as someone who has been a makeup enthusiast for years... not much new info and very basic feeling

Wonderful class, I really learned a lot. I just wish that along with different shades of skin being represented, a broader age range would have been represented. Older woman over the age of 60 have completely different needs and yet there was nothing about older skin and the challenges it presents. That was disappointing.

Confidence! I have been a face painter for over 12 years, taught myself special effects makeup and beauty makeup. I am also a licensed esthetician trained with some makeup knowledge, but I have yet to actually apply beauty makeup professionally. I do plan to rewatch this class and practice. I want to gain the confidence needed to help those wanting to hire a makeup artist (me). Thank you. ~Brecky

LOVE! As a new makeup artist, this really helped fill in some knowledge gaps -- there was so much that I needed to hear in this! 10/10!

I found this very helpful. I made my own foundation/moisturizer mix and it's perfect and I can make it as heavy or light as I need it, depending on the day. I put a dab of each on the back of my hand and apply it with a foundation brush. For someone who's never worn foundation, I feel like a pro!


This lesson was revolutionary for me. I will be making my own tinted moisturizer from now on. I think foundation looks and feels heavy and I can never get it to look natural in areas where I have larger pores. Mixing my liquid foundation with my moisturizer provides a lovely natural look. LOVE it!


I like Bobbi and her philosophy that makeup should look natural and enhance a person's beauty in a subtle way. I wish there was more information about how to choose a color. She talks a lot about choosing the right color for tinted moisturizer and concealers, but does not explain how to figure out what color is best for your skin tone. How do I know what skin tone I have? What should I be looking for to figure out the best color for me? The color a foundation is in the bottle is not the same as when it's put on your skin. Other than wanting more on that subject, I enjoyed this class and learned much from Bobbi.

Excellent lesson on tinted moisturizer; just right for me as an older, Chinese woman who doesn't like foundation and has to look professional everyday at work.
