A makeup lesson is a must-have service for anyone who wears makeup. As an experienced makeup artist, I have noticed that over time, most women stick to the same makeup routine they have done for years. This habit often leads to a feeling of complacency. Every woman wants to feel beautiful! Changing and updating your makeup routine is a great way to keep up with trends, make you feel beautiful and increase your confidence.
During a makeup lesson, your skin is the first thing to be addressed. Your skin is the canvas for your makeup. If it doesn’t look good, your makeup will not look good. Your makeup artist will apply skin care that treats your skin condition and gets your complexion glowing. We will teach you the importance of having a skin care regimen, and recommend a regimen that fits your needs. Next we match your complexion makeup to your skin tone so you have the correct shade for your skin.
Now for the fun part, what colors to wear? As the seasons change, we change the colors in our wardrobe. We also need to change the colors of our makeup seasonally to complement the clothes we wear. In the past, women were told they could only wear certain colors based on if they had “warm” or “cool” skin tones. This is incorrect. The modern woman can truly wear any color. Your makeup artist can show you the best colors for your skin tone and which colors will enhance your features achieving the look you desire.
Once your colors have been selected, we move to the application phase. Your makeup artist will show you how to apply makeup to half of your face, while you apply the other half to learn how to achieve the look at home. Each person has a different face shape, different eye shape, different lip shape and different brow shape so the same makeup application techniques can’t be used for everyone. Not to mention, as your skin ages it changes so your makeup techniques will be a little different than they were years ago.
A lot of people learn new makeup techniques by watching YouTube. This is one way to see what is trending but what you see may not necessarily be a technique that is right for you. The benefit of a makeup lesson is having your makeup artist show you techniques that are best for your individual bone structure and that flatter your features. A makeup lesson is a fun service, and the best part is you look beautiful afterwards!
