“Every face has something beautiful about it, and makeup should enhance what that something is.” – Terri TomlinsonTerri Tomlinson Makeup Training Academy in Addison, a row of neat stations are each professionally lighted and equipped with essential tools. Just like those you’d find behind doors marked with stars on Hollywood sound stages, the set-ups are suited for celebs, by design. On a Saturday afternoon earlier this month, they awaited Tomlinson’s latest class of eager students. CNN and The Style Network, plus sports stars, models (hello, Chrissy Teigen!), major magazines, and more. Making Tomlinson’s point, the camera-ready culture of today’s world has sparked a boom in interest in professional makeup instruction. From around every mall corner, it seems, springs another caped – or apron’d – crusader, eager to demo the latest trend. Not to mention, YouTube births another makeup vlogging sensation every other day. But not all instructors are created equal. As Tomlinson’s class files in, the first of many advantages to her style is noted. She greets each client by name or introduction, and makes sure all are seated and comfortable at their individual stations. Wine is offered, or espresso, brewed with care by the proprietress herself and served in china demitasse cups. Talk about star treatment. Each student is then presented with a silver palette and fresh set of brushes, as well as a take-home study sheet to mark along the way. Class then begins, focused on contouring techniques, a hot button phrase in makeup right now. A wide range of topics are covered in Tomlinson’s class schedule, or a focus may be customized to a client’s interests and needs.
