Your ad­vice to up­com­ing make-up artists…

Hair - - In The Spotlight -

Blend­ing is the most im­por­tant thing you can do when it comes to eyes and face, too. The more blended, the smoother make-up looks.

Stay on top of cur­rent trends and what prod­ucts artists are us­ing to get that look. Know your decades! If you show up to a photo shoot and the pho­tog­ra­pher says, “We are go­ing with a 60s Twiggy vibe with lots of mas­cara”, you need to know what that means, and re-cre­ate it!

When do­ing make-up, re­mem­ber to start slowly, and add tex­tures and pig­ment as you go along. It’s much eas­ier to add than to take away.

It is im­per­a­tive to know colour tones and what looks good with dif­fer­ent skin un­der­tones. Just as a painter who knows how to mix colours, the same goes for make-up. The more you know your colour scale, the more cre­ative and con­fi­dent you’ll be.

The most im­por­tant les­son I have learned in my ca­reer is to al­ways have a good at­ti­tude! Even if you have worked with the best clients, a pos­i­tive, pro­fes­sional at­ti­tude is what’s really im­por­tant. Of­fer to get peo­ple cof­fee, of­fer to clean brushes, check your ego at the door and have fun with it!
