Who hasn’t looked at the perfect beauty of a model on the cover of a magazine or seen the flawless beauty of movie star on the red carpet and wished that they too could possess such ultimate beauty? When looking for hair, beauty and makeup artists don’t always go with the lowest price. A picture can last many, many years and looking your best on that special is really important to you. It just might be worth spending that extra money to get a top makeup artist.
Beauty tip number two is that before you apply any makeup, you must first wash your face and your hands. This gets rid of dirt and bacteria which may have accumulated on the skin. You can then apply a thin layer of moisturizer and allow it to soak into the skin for a while. The moisturizer will help make your face smoother. Afterwards, rinse in warm water and pat the face dry with a towel. Make sure your towel is always clean. A dirty towel is likely to spread bacteria on your skin leading to skin problems like pimples, especially if you have an oily skin. If you wish, you may apply a primer; this improves the texture of the skin making the foundation last longer. They are available in most cosmetic shops.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-ZMFbLxzpA
Being a makeup artist you may presume that this is all to it so why does it need a special sub heading. Well, you would learn better of it later in the article. As for now, these are the people you recognize, idealize and think off as makeup artists. These are the aestheticians working at your salons and the sales facilitators at departmental stores, exclusive salons and malls. These jobs require formal training and full time hours. The pay varies greatly and can even extend up to 50K per month.
The first is that any working makeup artist will be expected to have their own stock of professional makeup provisions and supplies. Look in any half-decent makeup artist’s makeup bag and you will see something that is crammed full of products running into thousands of pounds. Makeup artists’ provisions certainly don’t come cheap, and they need to have a wide selection available for all sorts of work – beautifying, scars, wounds; the whole gamut of applications.
Airbrushing the foundation, blush and bronzer on takes about 1 minute, clean up, about 1 minute, so all up it is a quick 2.0 minute process to achieve perfection. A good quality airbrush makeup will last 12-15 hours. With water based airbrush makeup you can also waterproof it by adding 1 drop of vodka into the airbrush cup with your foundation and doing this when you are going out on a hot summer’s day will extend the life of your makeup.
One of the most comprehensive courses I have seen for airbrushing is the Dinair makeup class. These have the benefit of over twenty years experience behind them and are well recommended by loads of professional makeup artists, who themselves take the course to learn all there is to know about airbrushing. One of my favorite makeup artists (of YouTube fame) Kandee Johnson did the course, and totally loved it, but the great thing is that it can be hugely beneficial not only for professionals, but for amateurs and personal interest users as well.
