I was invited to attend the opening of the newly newly updated Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy in Hollywood, and what a wonderful experience it was. Upon arrival I mingled with the guests and munched on delicious (and low-carb!) appetizers, before it was my turn to get the glam treatment. Rebecca Prior, the chief of makeup services, gave me a bold pink lip and talked me through creating the look on my own.

I had the chance to chat with Napoleon, who was a wonderful host. He told me that at the academy education is their key focus. This is why all of the products are complete with pro-tips and an empowering message.
