For those of you who follow my twitter, you may have seen me tweeting about a "Makeup Course". I completed a Pro Makeup Course last week Thursday (2 week Harriet Ellis course), allowing me to officially call myself a Makeup Artist =D
The first day we covered cleansing, toning & moisturising and foundations and concealers, the second day we used blushers and bronzers, third day eyeliner & mascara and natural eye makeup. The second week: lesson 4 we covered smokey eyes, day 5 false eyelashes and day 6 we had a test using everything we'd learnt starting from day 1!
It was a good intense course and we got to practice on a different partner each day, so I got acqainted with a lot of skin types and colours. Prior to this course I wasn't 100% on choosing a foundation and I'd never applied falsies to anyone other than myself, but now I'm super confident and ready to do anyone!
I was really pleased with my test on day 6, I had a lovely girl who was quite conscious about coverage of skin flaws and knew her makeup well, so I was a bit worried about whether I could please her (cos makeup artistry is all about pleasing your clients!)
I managed to outdo myself though, as she was really pleased and kept gushing about how good it looked, so all in all I think that was even better than the certificate we got!!
I couldn't get a before picture as she was very conscious, but I managed to get afters, so here's how it looked!
All in all, I had a great time at the course, learnt some new tips and tricks and now feel even more confident to do any skin type!
I've just started a new job today (Tuesday) so I'm super knackered from travelling (cos its even further than my last job!) but I'll try and blog about a makeup look I did on my cousin on Monday night, lashes and all! =)
Hope you liked this look, I'll try getting round to doing some makeup looks on myself again ;)
