Diary of a Make Up Artist Student – Term 3 Week 8

Practical assessment first up on Monday morning on skills learnt over the past couple of weeks including Yasmin Eye, Foundation, Smokey Eye, 3D or regular lip, evening look, lip line.

Probably should have made a bit more effort with the Sexy Resort Wear Photo-shoot brief handed in this week.  We received a little reminder our work (even briefs) can be viewed as a reflection of our professionalism as a makeup artist so it’s best to think about the end user and their expectations when we prepare a brief for review.  Better to learn those tips here then when we are working!

Special Guest Kylie Eustace from Kylie’s Professional spoke to us about fashion (runway) make up – so awesome to have someone with hands on experience in this industry take the time to give us an insight into the madness and mayhem of a fashion event!

On Tuesday we had another special guest from TV come along for a demonstration.  Livio Regano from Channel 7 Sunshine Coast talked about life as a news reader and gave us a couple of tips to consider as a makeup artist such as lighting, angles, hair, etc.  Our teacher then provided a demonstration of applying his makeup ready for today’s weather.  We also spent some time on our Photographic & Hair Workbooks getting them up to date/scratch.

Wednesday we have yet another special guest from Warner Brothers to talk to us about Special Effect Make Up in preparation for our work experience at Aussie World’s Halloween FestEvil!!! Insert spooky sound here…

Finally, we received a Fashion make up demonstration in preparation for our upcoming work experience at the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival.  We then practiced various techniques learnt from the demonstration and previous theory.

What a week…huge!
