Eye Design’s founder and Master Technician Nadia Afanaseva could not be more excited about our upcoming Permanent Makeup Masterclass — the first of its kind from our team!

The class includes four days of intensive learning and hands-on training, led by Nadia herself. Students enrolled in all four days of the class will learn the following techniques:

  • Powder Effect for brows
  • Permanent lip makeup
  • Permanent eyeliner

Class will take place from

January 13 to January 16

at our headquarters in

Englewood, New Jersey

The best news? There is still time to reserve your seat — but hurry, space is limited!

Eye Design University’s state-of-the-art classroom is fully equipped with everything Nadia and her team need to teach, as well as everything our students need to learn successfully. Tools and supplies are always provided during the class — and we will be sending each student home with a complimentary gift bag with enough tools and supplies for his or her first 20 clients.
