Professional Makeup Tips


Here are a few professional make up tips I picked up recently when I was a model for a makeup course:

  • do your eye makeup first to avoid spillage of the colour onto your foundation area under the eye
  • for a flawless eye shadow application that lasts all day apply a reasonable amount of foundation to the lid from lash line to brow, using a brush so that the area is the same colour as the rest of your face covering all the veins ect
  • using your ring finger press the product into the skin to attain a smooth finish
  • always remember to start right at the lash line and to use your brush to ensure this
  • then take an eye shadow brush and apply translucent powder to set the foundation, do not wait too long to do that otherwise the foundation will set and the powder will sit awkwardly on top of the product
  • again use your ring finger to tap the eyelid ensure a natural look
  • next apply your eye shadow colour in contouring motions over the eyelid from lash line to below the brow bone making sure to apply the colour right at the lash line
  • lastly, take your highlighting colour and sweep over the brow bone making sure to blend slightly with the eyelid colour to ensure a seamless finish
  • finish the eyes with mascara making sure to wiggle the brush through the lashes
  • to apply blush, find the beginning of your cheek bone and apply along the bone to the hairline and up to the temple almost like a "nike" tick shape
  • make sure that the blush is blended well and doesn't look like a strip of colour, it might be a good idea to take the blush brush dust it off and make circular motions over the applied blush area to ensure that it is blended well and looks natural
What are your best makeup applications? Have any of you done a professional makeup course?
