    This webinar has made so much difference to when i now shop for lights even just for my home in general. Ive been able to help my mum select the best light for her bathroom,not to mention the guy in the store in the light section. He must have seen me reading the packaging so asked my advice.He went with my suggestion.It made me feel pretty good that i could help someone. Had I of not watched this, I would have been the one searching for someone to help me. Thank you Donna Xx

    Great information and insightful for all Makeup Artist & full of visuals. You spoke about lighting that was understandable to me rather than a sales man who just speaks a bout light physics and has no idea what i need as an Artist. Don’t hope for the best and just buy what’s on trend what is cheap or what is good. I recommend watching this webinar so you are empowered to make the best investment & decision with regards to “Lighting” for your career and clients.

    Great class – thank you for breaking down the different ways of measuring light intensity and warmth and giving us specific numbers to look for when we purchase lighting. Thanks to this class, I understand I can make my existing lighting setups work even better for me. And thank you for the advice about lighting your personal makeup area with the correct color temperature – never thought of that!

    This was my first class with Donna and I learned so much. Some things I was doing right but some wrong! I learned some new lighting tips that I really needed to know and will help me with future work.

    I admit I’ve done makeup applications in poorly lit rooms and now knowing what I know my work could have been so much better!!!! As artists we are only hurting ourselves without this knowledge and could easily improve our application in an instant by changing this one simple thing in our set ups. I love how Donna breaks down lighting and gives an option for EVERY budget. I’ve invested in a new light based on Donna’s recommendations and I see a huge difference in my quality of work. I’m currently remodeling a studio as well and the lightening advice could not have come at a better time. A must watch for all artists from newbie to experienced.

    I’ve purchased Donna’s previous class on lighting and also watched this one live. She breaks lighting down in very simple terms and tells you exactly what you need to know to have the best lighting while doing makeup. It is possible to have great lighting no matter what your budget is! Wish I had had these classes before I spent a couple thousand dollars of dollars on what I thought was professionally the best!

    A great webinar on understanding what the most ideal lighting is for makeup application. Thanks to this webinar I now understand what to look for in a light bulb and it has given me the insight to even pay attention to the colour of the lighting around me. I also have a different view on proper ring lights after watching this.

    A very enlightening class! Never seen any class like this one before and lighting is sooooo important, not just for makeup artists. Most know the basics but this class is a whole new level of detail!

    Yet again another in depth teaching from Donna about lighting, one if the not the most important component when doing makeup. Donna gave us some pretty amazing tips that I feel will not only set us apart as professionals but will also make our work better by just adjusting light! She shows detailed picture for those who are a more visual learning (like myself) and it really helped me understand what she was talking about. This is a must see webinar for sure.

    SOOOOOO much information on lighting. This is such an important topic and sadly it’s one that I don’t ever see taught in much details at all… and the few blogs/classes I’ve seen on lighting are sharing whatever information creates sales for their lights, wther its accurate and/or relevant or not. Donna, I sincerely appreciate that you only teach the truth, and go into so much detail. You talk about all the technical stuff we need to know, but make it so simplistic to understand, as well as suggestions for lighting at any budget. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!

    Hi Donna just finished watching your makeup lighting video , all I can say is just brilliant due to your recommendation I bought the Wyze photo lights few weeks ago and love it mind you if I didn’t have the lesson you taught I might have been a little lost as it didn’t have any instructions but a fantastic light. Looking forward to next Wednesday and if I don’t see it I will definitely purchase it to watch, Lauri💄
