    Great class! I felt very fortunate to get such valuable information and what felt like “insider secrets”. KJB gave us tiny details to help with our business that may otherwise be overlooked. He always knows how to keep a classes attention and make us laugh! I appreciate that he allows us to play along and get our hands on the products in his kit. I have not done a lot of bridal work so this class was just what I needed. I left this class with so much motivation and excitement!

    I am so grateful that I got to go to the bridal beauty seminar in Dallas this past weekend! Kevin provided us with so much valuable information for how to improve and really rock our bridal businesses. I was specifically intrigued by the more logistical practical information we received about branding, organization, and networking. During the practical portion of the seminar Kevin allowed us to touch and feel certain products to really understand how they work, which was especially helpful for me since I am a kinesthetic learner! I would have like to see more visuals implemented to really give us a concrete visual for some of the topics we covered outside of the demo portion, but overall I was SO impressed (not surprised, impressed) with every step throughout the day. I will definitely be a returning attendee, and hopefully I can get one going in SoCal! Thank you so much Kevin, I am so excited to implement everything I learned!

    This was such a fantastic class! I crave classes like this! Kevin went above and beyond in sharing tips, tricks, and knowledge with us. I left feeling empowered. I love how he explained WHY they does the things he does in great detail, even down to the last ingredients. The BulletProof Bride techniques truly work! I was able to apply these techniques to a bride recently that still looked flawless after jumping into water. I will definitely be back for more classes! Thank you Kevin, for putting this class together for us!

    You will absolutely get what you paid for here!! Kevin shared real, honest, invaluable information. You will learn an INCREDIBLE amount from the business side- be prepared with a pen and notebook because these guys share a ton of info. Not a lot of professionals share their secrets, so I think it’s absolutely amazing that he is taking the time to educate those who are hungry for success!! Kevin taught us how to consolidate your kit and use products for multipurpose! I definitely walked away with a notebook full of knowledge that I can’t wait to apply to my business!

    How amazing was this opportunity??? For the price paid (Earlybird Special) I was pleasantly surprised to see we had a very intimate group that enabled us to have a more personal experience. I didn’t feel like I was clamoring for attention and I was able to glean all the information I could within the time period given. The course materials are presented in a clear/concise way without boring you to sleep. If you want an opportunity to say you’ve had your makeup done by an Emmy Award winning artist, be the first to volunteer if KJB is looking for a model to demo on. If you’d like to see what items can condense your kit and how, look no further. By the time you leave, your head will be filled with enough tips and tricks to make you a “Makeup McGuyver” in most settings if you pack your kit and head with the ideas presented. The language used to communicate all concepts were professional and elevates your personal business style if you can adapt it to your own. This isn’t YT OR IG vocabulary… it’s real-world concepts presented to you by individuals with artistry, product development, business marketing and event experience. It doesn’t hurt that there is a LOT of humor and fun while presenting these ideas to you – KJB knows what’s up and I have to say, I am so humbled to have had the experience for such a great value! There was no cattiness or ego from attendees or the instructor, just pure love for one’s craft and sharing it with others… I am honored to have had the experience and I look forward to more in the future! Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

    What a learning experience! I took home so much knowledge, new connections, and a totally different perspective of this beautiful industry we are in! I would HIGHLY recommend it for every artist out there looking to better them self both professionally and artistically. As was mentioned many times throughout the day: “Never stop learning, never stop growing, improve always!”

    I couldn’t recommend this course more! Do yourself, and your clients, a favor and spend a day with Kevin. The knowledge and expert advice you’ll receive is incredible, his hilarious and charming personality is a bonus 🙂

    OMG I loved this class!!! I have pages and pages of notes. Kevin is a wellspring of knowledge. I came to this class needing some inspiration because I felt like my business and skills had kind of hit a wall. I left the class more than inspired. From the business side to the makeup side of bridal beauty I am challenged and excited for the future. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this class together and for sharing your knowledge and skills with us.
