    Here's A Bunch Of Virtual Events You Can Attend From Your Couch

    Take a makeup master class, attend a wine tasting, tour Machu Picchu — all from your living room.

    1. Become a master chef with NYC-based Haven's Kitchen. They're hosting online cooking classes in partnership with Farm to the People, an online farmers market that will deliver all necessary ingredients to your door.

    2. Ipsy, *the* beauty subscription service, is throwing a week-long party on their Instagram Live. With master makeup classes, concerts, and giveaways on the line-up, expect guest appearances from Iggy Azalea, Nikita Dragun, Madelaine Petsch, Patrick Ta, and more.

    The ~events~ take place from Monday, April 20 to Sunday, April 26 on Instagram Live starting at 8 p.m. EDT. Plus, every view will result in Ipsy donating $1 (up to $15,000) to the American Nurses Foundation.

    3. Support local New Orleans businesses *and* listen to live music! A ton of NOLA bars and artists (including The Bayou Boogaloo, SideBar NOLA, and Luna Libre Live) will be streaming some truly impressive sets.

    4. Walk through The Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar with Google Arts & Culture — this 360-degree tour will bring you just steps away (well, virtually) from masterpieces that span 1,400 years.

    This waterfront museum houses jewelry, textiles, paintings, and more that are truly a feast for the culture-craving eye.
