    SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! NO REAL PRO DISCOUNTS COURSE IS NOT APPROVED FOR ANYTHING!! You would learn just as much in a 1 day course as you would with Lyllie. The majority of the time in class is spent practicing after watching a demo not on actually being taught fundamentals. We didn't learn to apply lashes, and we didn't even learn how to custom make foundation which is vital to makeup artistry. The website says you MUST purchase all products for your kit prior to class, so I did just to see that was not really a requirement. I have a $200+ airbrush machine that I do not use and some students never got one at all. Lyllie told us that all of those things the site says it requires are really just "kit recommendations" when asked about it.The BIGGEST upset is that Lyllie is very misleading advertising the course saying you will be able to get pro discounts but the school IS NOT approved for MOST pro discounts, but only student discounts. YOU WILL NOT GET A MAC PRO CARD WITH THIS CERTIFICATION!!!!! Very misleading just to learn a little product info AND the "textbook" is mostly the Marinello makeup textbook info combined with things she gathered offline and Kevyn Aucoin prinicples. Don't spend over $1000 on this course and the products to be disappointed. I just saw that Glam Lab had a 1 day course teaching all she "taught" for $200 and you actually get oro discounts. Can't begin to tell you how much I regret believing the instagram hype behind Lyllie. I recently saw work she did on a bride and realized I never should have judged her sklill off the work she shows on her own face. AND get this, one girl didn't even pass the test to be certified and received her certificate anyway. Let's me know the whole course was a total joke! This course is for people who don't know any better who believe they're really learning she knows that. She's horrible. This certification doesn't count anywhere.

    I'm a former student of Lyllie's of Next.Level.Artist.Makeup.Studio. I was very interested in makeup. I came across Lyllie's YouTube page where I became so impressed with her work. I was excited to learn that she actually taught a class in my town of Long Beach! I came in knowing absolutely nothing about makeup. I was so nervous and intimidated coming into it, but determined and driven, I dove in and experienced a whole new concept of makeup! I gave her a call and set up an appointment to talk about class,pricing,scheduling etc... and was blown away! She is the sweetest person and so is Chris! We all clicked right away and I felt right at home. I worked full time, so I was hesitant of the scheduling, surprising enough she had weekend classes available which was perfect! On top of that, the pricing for the class was unbeatable! It is so affordable and for what she taught me, I don't think anywhere else can compare. That's not the best part! ;] The intimate setting of her class was what I needed! She taught me personally, showed me step by step the tricks of the trade. I learned so much with her! Btw, The kit that is available is so worth it! I still have the majority of the products and fell in love with the brow and blush/bronzer pallet! Since completing my class successfully, I've received a MAC PRO card, attended many MAC PRO events, had offers for shows,events, and get complimented on my makeup almost everyday! I've been networking with celebrity makeup artists and the best part. I have more confidence than I ever had before thanks to this class. (I rock Lyllie's signature "Perfect Brows" look every day) and I can't thank her enough because my brows were a hot mess before! haha This class is so well worth it, you will not be disappointed or discouraged.

    Pros*
    -Affordable
    -Convenient schedule/times
    -Great atmosphere
    -Friendly instructors
    -Amazing products (KIT provided if purchased)
    -Short hours
    -Lyllie keeps up with her students

    Cons*
    -That I had to leave so soon =*( I love that class! Wish i could've stayed longer. ;]

    MY EXPERIENCE WITH NEXT LEVEL STUDIO WAS AMAZING, I LEARNED ALOT ABOUT MAKEUP, WORKING AS A FREELANCE ARTIST, AND BUSINESS WOMAN. LYLLIE IS A WONDERFUL INSTRUCTOR AND A VERY PLEASENT PERSON WITH A HUMBLE SPIRIT. SHE HAS SUCH A STRONG PASSION FOR MAKEUP, AND SHE WILL BE THERE TO HELP AND ANSWER QUESTIONS AS WELL AS MOTIVATE YOU ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE COURSE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NEXT LEVEL MAKEUP STUDIO, IT'S INEXPENSIVE,VERY PROFESSIONAL ATMOSPHERE AND YOU WILL WALK AWAY AS A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST.

    Hello all, well first off the class was very good, lilly is such a sweet person,kind and humble, when i first started the class i new a little about makeup, but as i finished the class i even knew more things that i didnt know, one of the best things that i love about the class was the togetherness we all had, when one person make a mistake we all come together and fix it, or what can we do to enchance it, it was just the togetherness we all had for each other, and lilly made us fell so free and comfortable. I've learned so much from this class.....OMG I can assure you that you will enjoy and learn a lot from lilly she is the Best...

A. Makeup was going to help me go to college full time by giving me the option to only work on weekends but providing enough income to pay my bills, and school. I am no a graduated Architectural Drafter and am continuing to go to school to further my education in hopes to fulfill my ultimate dream, that of a successful Architect.
