Amanda Abram

Makeup Arist

Terri is an amazing makeup educator! I have taken several classes with her from color theory to hair styling for makeup artist to airbrushing. I cannot express how patient she is with students.

If you have been thinking of taking a class with her…DO IT! You will not regret it. She keeps her classes small and personable. Terri gives so much valuable information you cannot find anywhere else.
