What Makeup Artists Can Learn in School
Makeup is more than painting beautiful looks on clients. Some common parts of a makeup artist’s curriculum include:
- Assessing a client’s skin type (coloring, condition, and sensitivity)
- Learning color principles (skin color and undertones of skin)
- Properly preparing the skin before application
- Learning when and what brushes to use
- Practicing applying makeup
- Learning how to do different looks (avant garde, day, night, high fashion, and theatrical)
