How much time do you have for doing your makeup?

It's that simple. Just book your lesson based on how much time you have for doing your makeup when getting ready. We'll figure the rest out with you during the lesson and help you to create a routine that fits you and your lifestyle. 


If time is not an obstacle for you, you may ask yourself how much time do you want to dedicate to makeup each day. Do you like leisurely prepping in the mirror, or do you prefer sleeping in?

Included In Every Lesson...

The goal of each lesson is to create an easy practical routine that fits your lifestyle, and leave you with the knowledge to change things up.

You will learn...

  • Awesome + Easy Application Techniques

  • YOUR Skin Tone + Undertone

  • YOUR Face Shape + Structure

  • How to Enhance YOUR Eyes + Highlight YOUR Strengths

  • What Works For YOU Don't get shown things just one way, work with a teacher who will help you find the method that works best for you.

  • Making Makeup Last All Day

  • Color Theory So you can confidently make correct color choices in makeup, such as choosing eye shadow colors for your eyes and making sure all colors in your makeup application go together.

  • Product Recommendations What product types are best for YOUR skin/the look you're trying to achieve.

  • Brush/Makeup Sanitation + Care

  • Choosing Brushes

  • To Utilize Makeup You Have Together, we go through the makeup and brushes you already have to find what can be used in your routine and what doesn't serve your purpose. We never throw your things away!

  • How to actually learn from YouTube videos Be able to watch a video and apply it to yourself without wondering why it's not working for you.

All lessons are done in your home, so we can work in the space and light that you'll actually be using. We bring everything that may be needed. All you have to do is have your face clean, makeup you own (if any) out, and spend a little time thinking about what you want your makeup to say about you. Then we'll teach you how to say it.

How do I book a lesson?

Where are lessons conducted?

All of our services are on-location, meaning we come to you! It can be your home, a friend or family member's home, hotel, or any location within Brooklyn or Manhattan. Lessons are best held where you will be getting ready everyday, so you may learn and practice in the actual space and light.


Are products used gluten-free?

Gluten in makeup is mostly a concern when it comes to lip products, as products placed on the lips could be ingested. The amount ingested is very small, but if you are sensitive then you could experience adverse effects. Eyes, also containing mucous membrane, could be irritated but is even less likely. Reactions to skin products (like foundation or powder) are more likely linked to a wheat/gluten allergy than celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Please alert your artist to any allergies you are aware of.
Simple+Sultry offers a full range of gluten-free options for those who are sensitive to gluten.

Are your products safe for sensitive skin?

Simple+Sultry has never had a complaint of adverse reaction, Talia has meticulously researched and cultivated her kit.

Will you use my own makeup, if I prefer?

Of course! We come fully stocked but are happy to use any of your personal products that you are comfortable with.

Are your products cruelty-free?

Yes, absolutely!


What's your teaching method?

Talia will demonstrate on one side of your face, and you will replicate on the other side. It also includes repetition to engrain new skills. Talia will make sure you're comfortable with each step before moving on to the next.

Do I need to have my own makeup products and/or tools for the lesson?

Simple+Sultry lessons include everything needed, but if you do have items of your own, Talia is more than happy to instruct you with the makeup and/or tools you'll actually be using. She'll first go through your cosmetic bag with you to discern your best items, and what may not actually suit you. If you have brushes or tools, she'll also demonstrate how to clean and care for them.

How long do lessons last?

Since the lessons are catered to individuals, lesson times vary. However, for scheduling purposes, the maximum time allotted per lesson goes as follows: Lessons for Quick- 1.5 hours Lessons for Comfortable - 2 hours Lessons for Leisurely - 3 hours

What if we haven't completed my face within the lesson time?

Maximum lesson times allotted are generous, so this doesn't really happen. If so though, Talia would stay to help, given there were no conflicting appointments following. If there were another appointment Talia must leave for, another lesson must be booked and scheduled to continue.

What if I forget something from my lesson?

Talia will give you detailed notes following your lesson, and we really drill things in during the lesson. If you do forget something, as we're all human, you can always email us at with questions.

Are your lessons diverse enough to cover any ethnicity?

Absolutely. We use products with a global skin tone range and know how to enhance faces and eyes of all shapes.
