want to (finally) learn how to wear makeup?


you're in the right place!

Learn Makeup in 5 Days is the ultimate makeup for beginners course. It will teach you everything you need to know to master a natural, everyday makeup look.

yes, teach me how!

as seen in:

When it comes to makeup, you don't know if you're doing it "right" or "wrong" and you're tired of wasting time and money trying to figure it out.

does this sound like you?

have you ever thought of hiring a professional makeup artist & educator teach you?

There are so many makeup tutorials and influencers out there who will show you how they do their makeup... in a room blasted with artificial lights and sponsored products. Entertaining? Sure. Educational? Not so much. 

If you're interested in learning how to wear makeup, keep reading!

this is Real-life, practical, inclusive makeup education

Give yourself permission to feel confident in your skin by learning how to shop for and apply everyday makeup that works for YOU. 

Stop watching makeup tutorials, following beauty "gurus" and scouring the reviews.

there is a better way...

Unlike so many other educational offerings floating around the internet, this course (and my entire brand) has been a trusted source since 2014. Why? Because I'm not financially compensated with free products or sponsorships in exchange for content.

Rather than chasing trends, I teach people how to shop smart for products that will work for them. Instead of creating a makeup formula, I teach people how to create a look that suits their skin type, facial features, and lifestyle.

because when you're confident in your image, you show up more.

Yes, makeup is just one of the many confidence-building tools we have access to. But when done well, makeup can give us that extra boost we need to raise our hand, to show up, and to say "yes" to our lives. It's not about hiding your face behind products. It's about feeling comfortable in our skin and in the world as our true authentic selves!


Sure, you can keep watching generic (and biased) makeup tutorials by
so-called beauty gurus or you can learn from a professional makeup artist how to shop for and apply makeup that suits your specific features and lifestyle... in just 5 days.

yes! this is exactly what i need!

Learn makeup in 5 days

makeup for beginners

imagine confidently applying your makeup each day in just a few minutes

Stop second guessing whether or not certain products are going to "work" or whether you can "pull off" certain makeup shades. Instead, learn what works best for YOU so you can feel like your best self every day.

Let me ask you a few questions:

Do you know your skin type and which products your skin prefers? 

Do you know your skin undertone and which colors work best on you and why? 

Do you know how to play up your eyes based on their unique shape and color? 

Do you know where to apply your products to achieve the look you want?

nobody is born knowing the answers to these questions

but I know that

makeup is a skill worth learning

After years of working as a professional makeup artist, I realized there is lack of inclusive makeup education at the most basic level, without strings attached (i.e. someone trying to sell you something). So I began offering makeup lessons, workshops, and classes teaching my clients how to prep their skin for makeup.

In these lessons, instead of teaching cut creases and elaborate winged liner (trends), I would teach the basics. How to prep your skin for makeup and determine your undertones. How to identify the unique shapes that define your face, eye, lips, and brows. How to approach color. How to hold your brushes and move them on your face and eye. You get the idea.

In 2019, I published Be Your Own Makeup Artist, a book with all of my favorite makeup tips and tricks. Little did I know that BYOMUA would be sold in dozens of countries, translated in German, and picked up as cosmetology school curriculum! Learn Makeup in 5 Days is based on this book, and it has taken nearly 5 years to develop and I know you're going to love it!

“Makeup has the power to help us show up confidently, it's our most intimate accessory.”

Natalie Setareh

makeup is not skin deep... it's so much more

Makeup has always had a special place in my heart. As a child and teenager, makeup was the glue between my mother and me when my parents divorced. As a young adult, makeup gave me the confidence I needed when I was battling severe acne. Makeup artistry gave me a career when I felt lost in my life. 

There's no one-size-fits-all makeup application and unfortunately, there's lots of well-meaning generic advice floating around the internet that has done more harm than good.

The beauty industry, like most consumer-facing industries, capitalizes on our insecurities with makeup. That's why there 

But don't take my word for it ...

is always a new product launch, or another celebrity getting in on the action. Everyone wants their piece of the pie, aka the beauty consumer. You deserve to know the truth!

Here's the thing, when you know your skin type and what types of products and colors work for you, you'll know right off-the-bat whether or not a new product is going to be right for you, saving you time, money, and energy. No more fomo!

Now, I can't guarantee that in 5 days you'll learn everything about makeup. You won't. You will however, learn everything you need to know to confidently apply an everyday makeup that you can build off of.

Natalie took the time to explain my skin tone to me and what the meant for makeup and which colors would look best on me. She went through everything that would work best for my skin type to include moisturizer and a skincare regime.

Natalie is up on all the things popular with teenagers, but also able to speak to what's appropriate for forty-somethings. It was super fun to play with colors, products, techniques, and brushes. At her suggestion, I've added a couple of techniques and products into my routine that make a huge difference. She had a couple of "you must always" points that I've taken to heart. Now I think of her every time I put on makeup.

You’d be so proud of me today, Natalie! I finally got the right makeup for me. I did everything you said and I’m really proud of how it came out. And I feel more confident on shopping for the RIGHT makeup now.

I did my makeup this morning before the photoshoot and it took less than 5 minutes and I’m super happy with the result! Thank you so much again. This was the first time in my life I was confident about what I was doing!

A woman stopped me at school today and said, “You always look nice, Susan, but today you look especially nice. What is different?” I told her about you!!

You are great at listening to what people want and transforming their idea/vision into reality. You are also honest with managing expectation vs. practicality of time.

Learn Makeup in 5 Days is not designed or intended to teach you elaborate, fanciful, full-face makeup. There are enough of those types of courses, books, and makeup tutorials out there doing that.

Learn Makeup in 5 Days is designed to give you a basic, yet foundational understanding of how to shop for apply makeup in a way that works specifically for you. By the end of the 5 days, you will know what products and colors work best for you and how to apply them for an everyday, classic makeup look. 


Because I've condensed so much makeup education into 5 days, every single day is jam-packed with knowledge and downloads and for these reasons, refunds are not possible.

The welcome module itself is like a mini course in and of itself! 

If you have doubts about what you will get out of the course or what to expect, I encourage you to please reach out to me. I can help you decide if this is the course you need right now.

I'd also encourage you to check out my Instagram and Podcast to get a taste of what my teaching flavor is like. 


Put simply... forever! Call me crazy but I believe that if you pay to learn how to wear makeup in 5 days, I shouldn't put an expiration date on that! 

I do advise downloading the resources to your device and save them so that you have access to them offline. 


I do not teach contouring and baking in this course. I do, however, outline why/when/who may want to consider contouring and baking and what exactly it is so that you can make an educated decision as to whether or not these theatrical makeup techniques suit your everyday makeup style.

While I don't deep dive specifically into how to achieve a winged eyeliner (this requires more than 5 days of practice if you're a beginner), I do go over different eyeliner techniques that pair nicely with your eye shape. You might discover that winged liner is not even right for you! 


Instead of logging into a third party website, creating an account with a complex password, remembering said password, and logging in with an email reminder --  I decided to simply send you an email each day with your course materials.

All the course materials I send you over the five days are considered my intellectual property and are protected by copyright laws. Sharing the content and materials or using them for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. 

But I know you aren't going to do that so I'm not super worried. 


Lucky for you, there is 24/7 email access to me during the course! Not only do I expect questions, but I encourage them. 

All emails will be directed straight to my inbox at natalie@nataliesetareh.com and I answer questions during business hours. 


Every day, there will be a video embedded in the email that you can watch and refer as well as a link(s) to all of the pdf downloads.

Once you download the content, it's yours to keep forever. 

Again, one of the reasons I opted for an email course vs. a traditional online course is because you can easily search your inbox or make a folder to store the course materials for easy access, without having to remember another login or website.


If you are a budding makeup artist who doesn't know anything about makeup and want to learn the basics, yes -- this course is the perfect launchpad.

You do not need to spend thousands of dollars to learn basic makeup from makeup schools.

If you are a pro and want to hone and refine your skills, check out my pro shop here >


Because this is an email course, you are in the driver's seat. If you have the time to do the lessons each day, great. If you don't, file the emails away in a folder until you have time to dive in. You get to decide!

Important: if you want to participate in the optional photo critique that's included with this course, you will have to go through all of the lessons before the last day. 


This course does not include 1:1 coaching. If you are looking for high-touch, 1:1 makeup coaching, please check out Create Your Signature Look.

You do however have 24/7 email access to me to ask questions.

In addition, there is a voluntary option to request a personalized makeup critique. Here's how it works: on day 1, you'll submit your before photo and after day 5, you'll submit your photo with your everyday makeup look. I'll deliver a personalized makeup critique within 5 business days to you with my tips, recommendations, and feedback!

Important to know: this makeup critique is complimentary if you are willing to let me share your before & after in future course marketing. You can, however, request a strictly makeup critique at an additional cost.

There is also an upgraded option that includes group coaching if you're looking for something a little deeper from this course!


Unlike other makeup classes that are blatantly or subtly promoting their own brands or services, I am not sponsored by any outside brands, and have remained brand-agnostic since starting my business in 2014.

There's absolutely no way I would feel comfortable teaching you makeup if I was sponsored by a brand or receiving free product, because I would feel obliged to use those products and promote the use of those products in my educational offerings.

I work with products at all price points. I do not want you to go into debt buying makeup and nor do I want you to use sub-par products. 

The lessons for days 2-5 include a PDF download with my fave products in those categories, none of which are sponsored in any way. You can rest easy knowing that I'm not here to sell you anything except makeup knowledge. 

After years of just being a makeup artist, blogging about makeup, creating {embarrassing} makeup tutorials (read, I am not a YouTuber), and answering makeup-related questions 24/7, I realized there's a big problem.

There's a clear void of real-life, practical, accessible, inclusive, and unbiased makeup education in the $532B beauty industry.

I'm here to change that!

I teach people how to shop for, apply, and wear makeup in a way that works for your life. I truly believe that makeup, when applied well, can transform us in so many ways. 

Come learn with me!

so nice to meet you!


yes, i'm ready to make it happen! Sign me up!

you deserve to love the way you look everyday!

Let's discover your four-step everyday makeup routine together! See you inside!
