This July, Get Sun-Kissed Glam With Makeup Artist Jacqueline Gellner!

by Morgan Evans · July 1, 2015


    Don't let the summer heat keep you from looking great this season! Find out how to apply those shimmering, bronze tones and achieve that dewy, luminous skin with a tutorial by local makeup artist Jacqueline Gellner at her Sun-Kissed Summer Makeup Workshop!

    Ahh, the perfect makeup glow - the thing every girl strives for during the blistering months of summer.  Applying those shimmering bronze and golden hues is what summer makeup is all about! But while we all long to sport that "natural" JLo/Jennifer Aniston-like sun-kissed glow, sometimes it's a little hard to make the makeup magic happen for ourselves. So, why not leave it up to the professional to help us achieve that summertime glam?


    On Sunday, July 12th, learn to achieve the ultimate sun-kissed summer makeup look with Washington, DC makeup artist, Jacqueline Gellner at Bittersweet Creative Studio! As one of the District's top makeup artists, Jacqueline has over eight years of experience working in the industry, beginning with her early days working with global beauty brands such as Sephora and MAC Cosmetics. Since then, Jacqueline’s makeup artistry career has evolved into a blossoming freelancing business with clients ranging from bridal beauties, to DC network television news anchors, to WWE superstar wrestlers. She has collaborated and worked with fellow DC celebrity makeup artist, Nour Kazoun, and has received in-person instruction from global celebrity makeup artists Karen Gonzalez and Kim Kardashian’s personal makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic. While her passion for makeup artistry is ever evolving, it will always stem from the positive and joyful reactions received from helping others to not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful.

    So, now, with DC heat in full swing, what better way to share her wealth of beauty knowledge with an in-person makeup demonstration to not only display the latest summer beauty trends, but to help others with makeup application tips and demonstrations! Jacqueline will host her in-person makeup class to help benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, specifically for Nicole Pettit’s Finest Finale challenge, which will be coming to a close later on this month. Nicole’s sister, Lauren, who is living with Cystic Fibrosis, will participate as the class’s model where Jacqueline will showcase techniques to achieve a perfectly bronzed, glowing summertime look. Students of the class will be able to watch Jacqueline at work, while she completes an entire sun-kissed makeup look from start to finish, while projecting the demonstration live on the studio's projector screen.

    In this class, you’ll learn:

    - how to shape, define, and groom eyebrows to create the perfect arch - how to create a soft smoky, shimmering bronze eye - how to contour, highlight, and sculpt cheekbones - how to create a radiant, glowing finish to your skin - how to apply false lashes, and so much more!


    In addition to the the make tutorial, fresh, summer-time inspired refreshments will be served and following the class, attendees will receive a PDF via email that includes a full list of products used and detailed step-by-step instructions on how to achieve the look from the class!
