Event Overview

Do you feel like a clown when you put on makeup?

Can't get that perfect no makeup, makeup look? 

Do you stand in the cosmetic aisle paralyzed by all the choices?

Are you interested in learning how to use makeup and what matters when making selection choices in an environment where no question is dumb, every question is welcome, and we're all in this "I don't know what I'm doing!" together?

I Can't: Put On Makeup is for you.

I Can't: Put On Makeup is part of Mac & Cheese ProductionsI Can't series, where adults state they're unable to do something, they try it/learn about it with a bunch of other adults who also "can't," and everyone proves themselves wrong and not only does the thing, but enjoys it and says, "That wasn't so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What's next?!" Past I Can'ts have included yoga, improv, drawing, having a dog, financial planning, and buying a home.

For this edition, Mac & Cheese is partnering with Glowout Salon and the infectiously lovely, savvy, and big-hearted owner Jenn Dieas. Your local girl gang at Glowout Salon will teach you the basics you need and help you find your inner makeup artist in this hands-on experience. With Jenn and Saya at the helm, come for the makeup lesson, enjoy the additional laughter, camaraderie, and feel goodness.

Cheese-It Perk: any booking made at the event for future services -- blowouts, updos, makeup, tanning, manicure, brows, braids, drystyles -- will get a 20% discount.

No need to bring anything but yourself. Open to anyone and everyone. Good for all skin types.

Space is very limited due to the hands-on nature of the event.

Minimum age

All ages welcome
