For several years Dr. Gray worked with high-risk youth who were dealing with teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and significant health issues, among other challenges at an alternative high school. Dr. Gray also taught wellness in public school at the middle school level. She is trained in nonviolent communication, mindfulness, and comprehensive sexuality education at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. She also runs an ongoing LGBTQA+ fandom group called Multi-verse Travelers, encouraging empowerment and discussing the challenges of various pop culture fandoms. She earned her PhD in theatre, taking many makeup classes along the way, and her makeup classes are some of her most beloved here on Outschool. This class is a beautiful blend of story, artistic expression, and social emotional learning.  
Students should have access to their own makeup because they will be doing their own while I do the demonstration. I tried to put together a comprehensive list (prices vary), but we will work with whatever you have: 1) Eyeshadow in as many shades as possible -- I'm currently a fan of the James Charles pallette, the Morphe Such a Gem Pallette, Urban Decay *especially for anyone who needs hypoallergenic makeup* Elemental and Electric palletes, 2) Loose glitter in a variety of colors depending on the painting 3) Clear lip balm 4) Setting spray 5) Makeup wipes (I still love Neutrogena night-time cleansing wipes the best - they are the softest and most gentle) 6) at least one small eyeshadow brush about the size of a paintbrush, one powder or blush brush, and at least one very small, thin eyeliner brush (This link shows the different types: You can buy a whole brush set for $10-12 or you can buy them individually. 7) Eyeliner - I prefer eyeliner fine-tip markers or liquid rather than pencils 8) If possible, water-based pancake face and body paint like Mehron's in a variety of colors (I got Basic, Brilliant, and Pastel)... but they are expensive, so if you were only going to get one, I’d suggest the Basic: 9) Primers - full face primer (like ELF spray primer - $5 at Target, or I'm currently using Hello Fab Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer ($18) and eye primer (tattoo junkee is still my favorite - $6.99) 10) Foundation in a shade to match your skin tone 11) A Mirror For the Gore: Premade scarwax (kept cold) or the following ingredients: Jar of Vaseline - about 3.75 oz or so - and it works best if it's kept cool - even in the fridge All purpose flour - 3x as much as the vaseline A bowl plastic gloves Black liquid eyeliner Red eyeshadow For Bruises: Eyeshadow palette with red, blue, purple, browns, yellow, green Fake blood: Either purchase legitimate stage fake blood from amazon (I recommend OR Something cheaper, not necessarily Kool-Aid brand... you can use red liquid drink mix drops (like The flavor and brand don't matter as long as they are red. Liquid Latex can also take the gore makeup up one step further.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
On an emotional level, we will be talking about sensitive topics, but this is NOT group therapy. In addition to being a trained artist, Dr. Gray has more than fifteen years experience working with adolescents in sensitive social emotional subjects. The goal of this class is to break the limited views girls might have of these stories and to empower and uplift beyond the stereotypes. If an individual student is struggling and needs personal attention in a more therapeutic setting, I will contact the parent. 

On the physical side, kids with sensitive skin should be careful about makeup content, but we aren’t putting anything on faces that isn’t supposed to be there.  I wrote the following in response to a question about brands for makeup for sensitive skin:

Some of my favorite brands claim to be good for sensitive skin in general. Urban Decay is my go to brand, and it claims to be hypoallergenic. But that doesn't mean it would work for everyone (nothing does). And different colors are more abrasive than others. The Nude pallettes are generally softer and safer, but as you said, not the bright and fun colors. Reds, purples (because they contain reds), and metallics are going to be the most abrasive. Green used to be the worst color. I actually talk in my Wizard of Oz class about why it was so dangerous for them to choose green makeup for Margaret Hamilton. Burts Bees and MAC are also really good.  I found this article when I was looking for some more info to answer your question:  For foundation and my makeup wipes, honestly,  Neutrogena actually does a really good job. It's inexpensive and drugstore brand, but it has worked better than a lot of the more expensive brands.
