As you may or may not know, I recently started a course to train to become a professional makeup artist and hair stylist for TV, film and theatre. I say recently but I'm now 5 weeks in and I can't believe how fast the time is going! I promised I would take you along with me as much as possible so I'm going to whizz through weeks 1-5 this week and then I will be back on track for updating you each weekend about the previous week.
Week 1 was all about basic makeup. Some people on the course had done a fair amount of makeup before and others had barely done any so this week was about seeing what everyone could do and trying to get us all onto a similar level.
First up - meet Melissa. Time to practice colour correction and a very simple, natural makeup.
My next model was the lovely Claudia. Our aim for this look was a full face with a subtle day time eye. This could also be used as an idea for wedding makeup.
Finally my last pictured model of the week was Sophie. For this look we were told to experiment with colour and black shadow to create a bold evening look. I chose to pair my black shadow with purple and I love the end result!
These faces will be popping up in more posts to come so you'll become very familiar with Melly, Claud and Soph! The next Delamar post will be all about Period Makeup week, which will guarantee you a few laughs at some of the hilarious looks we created! If you have any questions about these looks or any of the makeup used please leave me a comment or tweet me!
What do you think of my first few makeup looks?
