Bauer encourages every student to try the looks they learn by themselves; in the last three months will involve working with professional models with his student as well. Bauer said, ‘

“Expect to learn a several of complete looks each month as their per their own choices, rather than just focusing on the subject and areas, so you can practice every aspect of putting together a great look, every time you work on it”.

He’s not a fan of intensive training courses as he says they don’t give students the time to practice and what they should know; this is what prompted him to launch his academy in India only.
