WATERPROOF BEAUTY FORMULA


Great Day! my wonderful readers. Summer is coming to a close in few weeks. Of course that's not good news. But, here's some food for the eyes lol... If you are susceptible to allergies that make your eyes water, you might not want to use a waterproof mascara because it's harder to remove and can damage delicate lashes. Women with sensitive eyes try to stay away from waterproof mascara because it is the most irritating of all formulas. I recommend MK Ultimate Mascara check it out TODAY!

Much luv, let's keep our makeup tight. Have an awesome day!

MODEL'S MAKEUP FOR ELECTRONIC MEDIA

Hello my wonderful readers! My goal is to blog at least twice a week, I've been very busy working on my new Virtual Makeover Portfolio which is going well. I'm so excited about this project, so don't forget to contact me to be featured. OK models, like I stated before knowledge is power so let's talk about makeup for Electronic Media.

Usually a makeup artist is employed for television and film work, but in cases in which you must do your own makeup, keep the following in mind.

Television image is less than life size. Also, the TV picture is quite grainy (not possessing a high number of lines of resolution). These two factors mean that the TV image does not capture great detail, and it is not as critical in what it registers as other media. Therefore, applying more makeup to emphasize the lips and eyes is necessary. Attractive skintones and texture are also important so use good foundation.

The types of lighting used in video and film productions are basically the same as those used in still photography. As in most photography situations, using a lipliner and eyeliner to define the lips and eyes is important, particularly when a flat lighting is present. Flat lighting is used in many video productions.

Understanding how certain makeups appear on videotape is important. Greasy makeups make the skin appear oily or sweaty. Certain bright-color or highly frosted makeups can "bloom" (appear distractingly bright or obvious) in video, so it is best to avoid them.

Lighting used in video and film productions can get quite hot, bringing oils and sweat to the surface of the skin, so frequent powder application or use a clay-based makeup to absorb oil or sweat is necessary.

HOW TO BECOME A MAKEUP ARTIST

Before considering a career as a makeup artist, you must do field research. Is there room in your geographical area for another makeup artist? What is the competition like? Are you willing to travel for, say, a wedding? How far? Is your car dependable? If you don't want to travel, is your city big enough for you to get the client base you need?

Also get the scoop on pay in your area. It will vary, even in one town, depending on your clientele. Working for a wedding planner, you will make more than working for a mall photography shop. Find out what the highest and lowest income opportunities are.

I started out as a MK Beauty Consultant that's where 90% of training came from. You can begin to build a makeover portfolio, read books by well known makeup artist like Sam Fine he's one of my favorites. Also, attend beauty shows and check out other Makeup Artist's website.

Here are just a few of the opportunities for Makeup Artists.
Weddings
Magazines
Movies
Runway Shows
Television
Until next time...
Have a wonderful day!

MODEL'S MAKEUP FOR STILL PHOTOGRAPHY

Great Day! Readers...I know you have been waiting for this "Model Makeup for Still Photography". As I said before knowledge is power, so let's started. Oh, by the way let me know if the information on my blog is helpful to you.

A model must know to apply makeup for five basic types of modeling situations:
1. Face-to-face meetings
2. Still photography
3. Electronic media
4. Fashion show or stage
5. Promotional modeling assignments

Here's the second makeup topic is Model Makeup for Still Photography.

We often see ourselves through our emotions and in movement. The camera is not emotional and captures only one instant in time with no regard to what motion preceded or followed that moment. Photography is a mechanical process and therefore it catches all the flaws. Makeup for photography must be very carefully applied. The slightest imperfection or poorly applied color is defined or exaggerated in a photograph. In addition, there camera lens tends to coarsen everything it sees, such as the skin and features. It also adds weight.

A model or makeup artist must be able to understand how makeup can be used to enhance the appearance of the skin and features in various photographic situations. Lighting controls makeup to a high degree. A good makeup application can be ruined or its effectiveness lessened by unattractive lighting. A good model knows how to adjust her makeup movements to make the light flatter himself or herself and the item being shown. The directions the light is coming from, the quality of the light (hard and direct or diffused and non directional), the color of light(warm or cool), and the amount of contrast between the highlights and the shadows are factors that must be taken into consideration when makeup is applied for photography.

MODEL'S MAKEUP FOR VARIOUS MEDIA

For the next few weeks my blog will include information on Glamour tips/applications for women in the modeling field. My goal is to share my knowledge on makeup applications by help women to succeed in their modeling career. So let's get started...

A model must know to apply makeup for five basic types of modeling situations:

1. Face-to-face meetings
2. Still photography
3. Electronic media
4. Fashion show or stage
5. Promotional modeling assignments

The first makeup topic is Face-to-Face Meetings.

A model almost always does her own makeup when interviewing for modeling assignments. The model’s objectives in these situations should be to allow the client to see that she has all the necessary requisites for modeling (good complexion, bright eyes, etc.) as well as the ability to apply her own makeup. In most cases, it is best to strive for the natural look. Covering trouble spots with concealer; applying a light coat of foundation that lets the skin show through; enhancing the contours on the eyes, cheeks, and lips; and grooming the lashes and brows are all that are necessary. Using a touch of subtle pink, peach, or tawny glosses to color and condition the lips is also important. Extreme makeup colors that are the latest fashion often look too harsh for street wear. However, using touch of such colors as an accent can work well.

The Blushing Bride


Want to be the cheek blushing bride? One of the most important things to think about, is making sure your color lasts. Here's an easy way to layer your cheek color and make it last from the ceremony to the reception, photo after photo:
  • After applying your foundation, apply a creme blush to the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones.

  • Dust your face with loose or pressed powder.

  • Apply a powder blush (similar in color to the creme blush) to the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones.

Using this application method will give you a bit more intense color, and everything will last throughout the evening. Don't forgot to bronze your cheeks: It will keep your skin looking warm and glowing throughout your entire wedding day. You will just have to bronze after you apply your blush with application technique, because you need to apply the creme after you foundation and before you powder.

close-set eyes


TIP: To open up your eyes and create the illusion of larger eyes, you can apply white or beige eyeliner round the inside "wet tissue" of the eyes ( the inside rim).
APPLICATION:
1. Highlight shade: Apply to lid and browbone. Apply to the inside corner at the bottom lashline.

2. Midtone shade: Starting at the outer corner of the crease, bring the color in toward the inside corner to the brow but not all the way over to your nose.

3.Contour shade: Sweep it across the base of the upper lash line and up into the outer area of the crease. Sweep it underneath the lower lash line for definition, except for the inside corners. Apply you highlight shade to the inside corners of the eye to help your eyes appear father apart.
