Armani makeup artist at Neiman Marcus

Tim Quinn, a national makeup artist for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics, will conduct a Beauty Master Class at Neiman Marcus at SouthPark mall from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 21. On May 22, he'll conduct individual beauty appointments from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Quinn's credentials are impressive. He trained in Milan alongside possibly the most famous makeup artist on the planet now, Pat McGrath. He's worked in TV, print and film and has a roster of celebrities he's worked with including Uma Thurman, January Jones, Kerry Washington, Victoria Beckham, Kim Cattrall, Gwen Stefani, Kate Bosworth, Amber Heard and Brooke Shields.

He joined the Giorgio Armani Beauty team when the brand was launched in 2001. As the U.S. front-man for Giorgio Armani Beauty, he's been featured in Harper's Bazaar, W, Elle, Glamour, More, Lucky, InStyle and Cosmopolitan. He also works backstage at fashion shows in Milan, Paris, Hong Kong and Beijing as well as award shows including the Academy Awards.

At the May 21 Beauty Master Class, he'll pull a "model" from the audience and apply makeup to demonstrate the products and his technique. Women will also have a chance to apply makeup on their own. Champagne, wine, hors d'oeuvres and cookies will be served.
