5 Mistakes everyone makes before going to Makeup School
#1 Choosing the right foundation shade
For makeup artists this is the easiest part of their job; however it’s surprising how many people don’t know how to match the right shade of foundation to their skin tone. Our makeup master training programme will not only teach you the ins and outs of skin imperfections, you’ll also become familiar with how to properly test foundation colour.
#2 Choosing the right concealer shade
Trying to cover up under-eye circles with a shade that’s too light will accentuate your dark patches just as much as a dark shadow. Also avoid green-based products, which will bring out shadows. Instead, pick a colour with a peachy or yellow tone to neutralize the purple tones of under-eye circles. Be sure you’re not making these makeup mistakes also.
#3 Not changing with the seasons
Just as your wardrobe changes from winter to spring, and summer to fall, so should your makeup routine. You may not think it necessary to use a different moisturiser or lipstick shade during the winter than you do in the summer, but we’ll let you in on a little secret – it is absolutely necessary!
As a makeup artist you’ll need to know when it’s time to switch to a more hydrating moisturiser to prevent dry skin, and when to switch from rich, dark shades to softer, lighter ones. With our makeup master training programme, you’ll have an overall understanding of fashion seasons, colours and trends as well as seasonal changes affecting makeup.
#4 Applying makeup in the wrong lighting
When you need to decide what works for you and what doesn’t with regard to makeup, you need to test it on your skin in natural lighting. When you try on makeup in unnatural lighting, you will notice that it doesn’t look as flattering as you hoped. Pick what suits you best in the best lighting possible.
#5 Bronzer Blunders
A bronzer is not meant to be swept all over the canvas of your face. The idea of a bronzer is to use it exactly where the sun would naturally hit your face. Make sure you apply your bronzer only on your cheekbones, the top of your forehead, and the jawline. If you are doing it right, you will notice that you are actually drawing the number 3 on both the sides of your face.
