English: Do you have what it takes? The makeup artistry business is really booming and many creative enthusiasts want to jump on board. I often get the question “will you teach me how to do makeup?”While this is a great industry it’s also one with high demands. It’s a personal service industry therefore those paying for it require great service. Wouldn’t you?Learning to apply makeup is not learned quickly. When it’s for personal application it’s easier to learn but when it involves applying it on others, it’s much more difficult.Besides the application of the actual makeup, you have to take into accountability the shape of the person’s face, their skin texture, and skin tone. For example, you can’t apply the same type of foundation to oily skin that you would to dry skin.You also must look at the person’s overall imperfections, eyelid structure, bone structure, and many other things. For example, a person with droopy eyelids requires a special technique in order to hide their droopiness.Contouring is another big one. Not everyone gets contoured in the same areas. You need to be able to look at the face with a fine eye and determine where exactly to contour.Overall, the art of makeup is not learned quickly. It takes a lot of practice on many different canvases in order to perfect it.When deciding to jump on the band wagon just make sure you have years of experience or even better a natural talent to go with it.
