Join Nadia Afanaseva for her first-ever MasterClass live stream

Beauty professionals (and aspiring brow professionals) can learn Nadia Afanaseva’s expert techniques without leaving their homes. For the first time ever, Eye Design University will be presenting our Powder Effect MasterClass via live stream! If you are interested in joining us for this exciting event, continue reading.

Eye Design is beyond thrilled to announce that our founder and Master Technician Nadia Afanaseva will be hosting her first-ever MasterClass via live stream! Because it is the most popular semi-permanent eyebrow solution at our studio, Nadia chose Powder Effect as her first technique to teach using an online format. 

In fact, one in three clients is a candidate for this procedure, meaning that brow artists can increase their income by 30 percent (or more!) when they learn it themselves!

If you have ever been interested in our MasterClass workshops, but are not able to make the trip to New York City, our live-stream format is the perfect opportunity for you to learn Eye Design’s life-changing Powder Effect technique! You will get the feel of Eye Design University from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you are.

All of Eye Design’s training programs are open to a wide range of passionate, eager-to-learn students! Whether you are a beauty professional who is already working and simply want to acquire techniques straight from Nadia, or you are someone who is curious about getting started in the semi-permanent makeup industry, you will not want to miss this opportunity. 

Students will watch Nadia at work as she goes through the entire Powder Effect procedure on a real model. She will share with you all the must-know details step-by-step! At the end, she will hold a live question-and-answer session. Students can use this opportunity to ask her anything related to the procedure itself or the business of semi-permanent beauty in general. 

Our in-person MasterClasses always includes information on sanitation, as well as business and marketing. So, Nadia wants to include that in our live-stream class, too!

So, what is Powder Effect?

Known throughout the industry by several names, including shadow effect, ombré brows and micro-shading, Powder Effect is Eye Design’s exclusive take on the technique. Developed by Nadia herself, it is safe for all skin tones and skin types (and it is Nadia’s personal favorite technique).

Powder Effect works best for clients who have medium to full natural brow hair, but frequently use a pencil, pomade or powder to fill in gaps and add definition. It shapes and strengthens the brows using pin-dot pigment application. The most efficient way to do this is with a small machine tool that requires expert training.

Like all of Nadia’s semi-permanent beauty treatments, Powder Effect can be customized to suit each client’s one-of-a-kind facial features and unique personal style! During the live stream, you will watch Nadia use her signature 5-point drawing method to create the best-shaped eyebrows for the model as an individual! With this technique, you will be able to shape any client’s brows.

From the drawing process, Nadia will show students how to numb clients’ brows. Then, the pigment application begins! Before the Q and A session at the end of the class, Nadia demonstrates how to clean-up properly after the procedure and how to talk to your client about aftercare.

Join us September 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Eye Design University’s first MasterClass via live stream!
