Yesterday I went back to the Iver Makeup Academy to do some more makeup modelling for some of their students. During the day the students had to do two different makeup looks on two different models.
The workshop for the day was creating looks using individual lashes one glam look and a look with a good base to the skin.
The Glam Look
In the morning for the first look I worked with a MUA student called Mary. She created this pink and red toned makeup look on me. She used a mixture of different pink, red and purple based eyeshadows on my eyes and then add a very light pinky red toned lipstick to my lips. To begin with the lips were too red so she stripped the colour back by taking some of the lipstick colour off so it wasn’t over powering and distracting from my eye makeup. Then she worked on blending my eyeshadow to create a more smokey eye. She gave me a more defined eye by using a black eyeliner and adding some individual lashes. Then applying mascara to my lashes.
Good Base To The Skin Look
In the afternoon I worked with a student called Amy. She created a different look by focusing on getting a good look and coverage to my skin but also adding some glam to the look as well.When doing my foundation Amy used a variety of different shades using MAC products. To help make my foundation look less “cakey” she used different beauty blenders to work the product into my skin as well as using just some slightly damp beauty blenders too. For my eyes she used green and brown tones of eyeshadow and also added a sparkly green eye shadow into the eye as well. She worked different mascaras on top of all my lashes to make them stand out. For the lips she used a pale skin pink toned lipliner and a natural coloured lip stick.
I really enjoyed my day and can’t wait to go back and model agin very soon!
Recently I was a makeup model for students studying at Iver Makeup Academy. I thought I would share with you my experience of the day. The workshop for the day was makeup for different skin tones. For the day I was modelling for a student called Tillie, during the day the students had to complete two makeup looks assignment briefs.
The first look the students had to do in the morning was a very natural makeup look more suitable for the daytime.
I found it really interesting to see how Tillie did my foundation as I find looking for the right foundation in shops such as Boots or Superdrug really difficult as most foundations are either to dark or light for my skin tone. I learnt a lot about how I can create a more flawless foundation look by using different coloured and different tones of foundations in different areas on my face. For example I need to put a more orange tone foundation under my eyes so I don’t look too grey or shiny under my eyes.
In this photo I have a more natural foundation lightly applied to my face. Tillie also applied a pink toned blusher to the apples of my cheeks, a little bit of mascara to my eyelashes to give them a bit more volume and a lip balm to my lips.
Finished look for the more natural makeup look.
In the afternoon the students had a brief to do more glam evening makeup look. The looks they needed to create had to feature a smokey eye. They had to work with the first look they created and turn it into an evening makeup look.
Tillie decided to give me a gold and purple smokey eye I was so pleased as gold and purple are my favourite colours and I like the way the two colours work together. She then gave me fake lashes then added a thine line of eyeliner to give the look more of a glam feel but also to help give my eyes more definition.
