PRIVATE LESSONS

Take advantage on one-on-one time with Donna Mee to hone in on exactly the topics and levels that are needed and wanted. Appointments can be done live in person or via webcam from anywhere in the world for artists and aspiring artists that can not make it to one of Donna’s live Training courses or Master Classes.

Private lessons are also a great way to maximize comprehension of a previous training with Donna. Scheduling one-on-one, private time to review any portion of the plethora of information that Donna delivers during her classes is a great idea to ensure the application skills or marketing information was not misunderstood or forgotten.

Donna is aware that everyone learns at different rates, and she is skilled at teaching artists regardless of how high their IQ is and regardless of possible learning disabilities. Therefore private lessons often give artists the major light bulb moments they may have missed in a previous training. Donna’s goal is to do everything possible to allow artists to absorb as much theory, and hands-on skills and confidence as possible.

Artists can design their own private lesson by specifically requesting to cover any of the subjects from the list below that Donna Mee teaches.

“Dear Donna Mee, you have literally blown my mind! I could not sleep last night! I dreamed about makeup and faces and all about what you taught me. You have given me a new vision to think about and a whole new world of makeup that I could not even imagined existed. Donna you are a GENIUS. What they teach overseas and at makeup schools is only the basics but Donna, I truly have not ever come across anyone who has your advanced knowledge. AND FOR ALL THE MAKEUP ARTISTS OUT THERE… IF YOU HAVEN’T LEARNED FROM DONNA you are doing yourself an INJUSTICE. Donna Mee, you are the THE ONLY Guru of the makeup industry.”

– Mrs. Khawar, Sydney, Australia
