So i started my course a week ago for 6 days.
I will tell you abit about the course.
Day 1 – Was introduction to the groups, getting to know each others background like where we from, why they chose this course , what makeup skills we have, what we want to learn and what to do after the course is completed. We recieved our brush sets which were in such great quality. We then had been told about keeping hygiene and how to apply makeup.
We then watched our teacher do a demo to one of the students and show us natural makeup and turn it to smokey eyes after and then we had to do the same look on other students by taking turns; this was a great opportunity to see how we do these looks and what the outcome was; the teachers had given us a lot of feedback and help with anything which was great.
Day 2 – We were introduced how to contour and correct your face; this was a great lesson learnt and have been taking notes for all days, We did same step watch the demo and we created the same look on each student. I had no idea how contour is created now i know; understanding the colour correctione was very interesting.
Day 3 – We were introduced the eye brows and how we shape them and fill them in using the products provided; the products we used were all very high brand products had a odd few cheap brands but good quality. This was a great day learning how eye brows should be the length etc. Barbara our teacher provided the best tweezers to add to our kit we had to pay as it was her product; We also did a glam look alongside the brows – having light shimmery looks. We did same step watch the demo and we created the same look on each student.
Day 4 – We had bridal makeup; step by step guide by Loui Dartford the makeup artist on how to do bridal makeup. We did same step watch the demo and we created the same look on each student.
Day 5 – Was a personal shopping day at Covent Gardens; this is were the teachers take the students to makeup stores to buy items for their makeup kit; We went to Charlotte Tillbury, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals and Benefit for great discount we also recieved some discount cards for some of the brands which was awesome: Below is the things i got to add to my kit:
Alot i know but had to take advantage of the discount because makeup isnt cheap.
Once we returned from shopping we then were introduced makeup looks for Runways focusing more on the eyes. We did same step watch the demo and we created the same look on each student.
Day 6 – Last day was based on eye makeup using bright colours and working more on the eye itself rather than whole face. We did same step watch the demo and we created the same look on each student.
Finally graduated as a makeup artist…!
This was a wonderful experience and have learnt so much and meet new friends also!
