Being a Professional Makeup Artist is not an easy job. Well at first I thought it was, but you really need to be focused on what you're doing. Mixing colours and palettes are fun but when you apply it to other people, you have to be really careful and make sure the application is clean and always on fleek.
I've shared recently about my plan of joining a Professional Makeup Workshop with MissDi Marasigan to be held in TCMI Fashion Academy, Marikina City. And this is it! It's a 3 day workshop where MissDi discussed about professional makeup artistry, do's and don'ts, the right makeup corrector to use for the right skin tone, the importance of using a mirror and many more. MissDi also discussed about the right products to use for an indoor photoshoot versus the ones that need to be used for an outdoor shoot.
I invited a friend of mine to be my model for the day. Her name is Arianne and we've known each other since grade school. If you're reading this Arianne, thank you for joining me on my 1st day in class. I did the daytime makeup on the first hour. Just fresh makeup that will help enhance her facial assets. And I'm glad she really liked it!

Here's our quick indoor photoshoot...
After the daytime makeup, we also did the night time makeup that is suitable for night parties and clubbing. Smokey eyes are always perfect for night parties, so here's how we switched over from daytime to night time. Makeup application steps are the same, we just applied darker shade eyeshadows to create smokey eyes, thicker winged eyeliners, used false lashes, smudged the lower eyeliners with the eyeshadow, and retouched her with a darker shade lipstick.
