Careful consideration of the client’s face / skin type and texture is important before applying any makeup to the skin whether the skin is normal, dry, or oily. There are five basic eyebrow shapes (High Arch, Low forehead, Round Face, Long face and Square Face) that can be used to accentuate or modify facial features.
Choosing the right eyebrow arch for facial shape is very important because choosing the wrong shape can be quite unflattering. For example, a highly arched, angled brow can make a round face appear more oval but the same brow will make a longer look even longer.
Want fresh, dazzling-looking eyes without all the cakey makeup? Eyebrows give expression to the face, so frame the eyes with a classic and becoming eyebrow shape.
An eyelash curler might look like a torture device, but once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder how you lived without it. A curler can open up the eyes in a way that plain mascara never will, leaving you a bit more wide-eyed and awake.
We want it all when it comes to mascara. We want eyelashes that are long, thick and have extreme volume. For Thicker Eyelashes holding your mascara in a horizontal position, apply your mascara at the base of the eyelash line and "wiggle" your brush all the way up to the top of the lashes. For Longer Eyelashes Hold your brush in a vertical position, apply your mascara pulling the brush up, this will feel odd at first but it definitely works.
Lining your lips is important for creating plump, noticeable lips. The application of lip liner helps the lipstick application to stay on the lips giving longevity to your makeup application. We'll share our lip lining technique that's as easy as 1-2-3! Learn about how to put on lipstick.

Why Airbrush Makeup?
High Definition (HD) technology creates challenges for makeup artists to create flawless skin while looking completely natural on camera. Traditional makeup application that is rubbed on can be highly noticeable under HD technology, while makeup that is “airbrushed” onto the skin lands in small micro droplets. This sheer, almost invisible type of application is what creates the appearance of perfect skin. With each airbrush layer applied, makeup coverage is increased and imperfections disappear.
Airbrush makeup represents the easiest way to neutralize unwanted discoloration, balance skin tones, and hide imperfections. Airbrushing makeup is faster than traditional makeup application and uses a minimum amount of product to achieve maximum results. Airbrushing is safe, reducing the risk of infection or cross contamination and you don’t have to disinfect the gun like you would brushes and sponges.
