Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Q – Is Class only seminars and lectures?

A – ‘Class – Where the Masters Teach‘ is a first of its kind beauty conference dedicated to all hands on following demonstrations from the top requested professional and celebrity makeup artists around the world. Each class is showing specific techniques that you can practice immediately following the last demonstration.

Q – I don’t think I need the hands on, can I just watch the seminars?

A – We have put together the most requested type of event, all hands on for every attendee. If you don’t plan on doing hands on, we ask that you not purchase a ticket. We want everyone to have the opportunity to have hands on and if you are at the point in your career that you don’t think you need the hands on, our event is not for you. Every artist must continue to practice their craft in order to grow, this is the entire point of our event. Please plan to participate fully prior to commitment.

Q – Do you offer payment plans & how are they set up?

A – You are able to make payments on your class tuition either automatically when you sign up or manually on the website. Just look for the ‘Make Payments‘ tab under the ‘Register Now’ drop down. You MUST write ‘payment towards Class’ in the memo line in order to get credit. If you skip this part, your payment will not be counted towards your total.

PLEASE NOTE: At least 50% of your tuition MUST be paid by August 1, 2017 in order to be accepted for a payment plan. Email us if you have questions.

Q – Once I make my initial deposit, when is the balance due?

A – All balances are due by September 1, 2017, no exceptions.

Q – I want to only attend one specific day of the Class event, is this an option?

A – We have designed this event to offer the best possible hands-on education with the most requested Masters artists on the planet. You don’t have to pick & choose one class over another, we are giving every class to every artist. We want everyone to have the most amazing experience and ask for the 5-day commitment so it’s fair to everyone else attending. We aren’t offering 1-day attendance at this time. Please contact us if you have questions.

Q – Is hotel included in the price of Class?

A – Hotel is not included, however we have a large room block with deeply discounted rates. Every room in the hotel is a suite with separate bedroom, living area and bathroom. CLICK HERE to reserve your room. You don’t pay until you check out, they just hold the room with a credit card.

Q – Can I stay at another hotel instead of the Embassy Suites?

A – We chose this location because of their extra large rooms and the generous room block pricing for the week. While our preference is that you stay on property (to avoid traffic, parking or other things that could make you late), it is up to you.

*Please note that breakfast will not be included for those choosing to stay at other locations & there is a $500.00 up charge to your tuition to accommodate your lunch, snacks and beverages.
