How to become a Make-Up Artist

Becoming a make-up artist especially in the world of fashion and media can be a tough job. We have put together a check list of industry tips to help you kick start your make up artist career.

  • Start a kit of beauty must-haves – hairbrushes, clips and extentions for hairstylists; brushes, makeup, and skin care for makeup artists.

  • Keep supplies organised. You’ll need to know exactly how to arrange everything at a shoot, which is a high pressured enviroment.

  • Work at a makeup counter or a salon while you’re in high school or college. You’ll get to practice on people with different skin tones or hair textures.

  • Move to a major fashion city like Milan, Paris, London or New York. Then contact someone you admire through his or her agency (do the research online) and offer to assist at a show or a shoot.

  • Watch movies from different eras so that you amass a wide range of beauty references and inspirations.

  • Make friends with fellow assitants – they’ll have the best job leads, and as you advance in your career, they will too.

  • At interviews and while on the job, wear clean, natural makeup and keep your hair simple. Your look should appear effortless, to keep the focus on the work you do.

  • Mistakes are inevitable, and tastes constantly change. Take time to review your work and become stronger.

Here is a video tutorial which has all the necessary information you need in regards to becoming a makeup artist. Hope you find this useful.

Fashion Research Institute Collaborates with Intel Labs to Bring Premium Digital Content to Science Sim

“Content is King” has long been the mantra of the gurus of the Internet.  And now, Fashion Research Institute has teamed up with Intel Labs to provide users with a myriad of choices in premium digital content to help give those users a solid start to their Science Sim efforts.

Fashion Research Institute has been collaborating with Intel Labs since 2009, helping to push the limits of content development.

“Compelling content will drive the growth of virtual world grids; performance is essential to sustain that growth. But compelling content must be there first for the platform to host the business models to follow, including ours,” says FRI CEO Shenlei Winkler. “In particular, our research, which is supported by studying more than 65,000 new users to virtual worlds, shows that premium avatar customization content in particular aids in user uptake and deeper immersion to the platform”

FRI provided Science Sim with six full avatars in various skin tones for male and females with multiple facial hair and makeup options, as well as a range of clothing, jewelry, shoes, and hairstyles. Additionally, FRI has provided landscaping, texture packs and buildings of various sorts.

“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to collaborate with Intel Labs to bring over 800 items of inventory to the Science Sim project,” says Winkler.

Along with recent performance enhancements, we are laying a foundation for further exploration of new problem solving methodologies. Fashion Research Institute is collaborating in this effort through their recent content contribution,” says Dr. Mic Bowman, Principal Engineer, Intel Labs.

Hair and make-up trends for 2011 from ‘Down Under’

What will be the big hair and make-up trends this year?

FACING FACTS:

Perth make-up artist Yvette Gray says bright colours should be your beauty staple for 2011.

“Looking at what was on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, there is a lot of citrus and coral on the eyes,” she says.

“Those colours need to be paired with nude lips and cheeks, otherwise the look is way too much.

“There were also a lot of pale white or soft nude eyes, generally teamed up with cantaloupe and watermelon tones on the lips.”

We will also see a new take on the classic smoky eye this year.

“It is always a strong look that never dates but it will be modernised for 2011 by adding a metallic finish to the eye,” Ms Gray says.

“It’s a great evening look.”

Napoleon Perdis national creative team leader Kate Squires says green is also emerging as a key trend.

“The arresting shade evokes so many things – from money to Mother Nature – but, for us, green shadow and liner on the eyes is also undeniably glamorous, especially when paired with glowing skin, contoured cheeks and pinkish lips,” Ms Squires says.

Ms Squires says it is important not to get so caught up with colour that you forget the basics.

“No make-up technique or look is complete without the perfect base and a lot of women still find this hard to achieve,” she says.

“It’s all in the priming. As Napoleon would say ‘not to prime is a crime’.”

MAC senior artist Nicole Thompson says glossy skin texture will be pivotal in the coming seasons.

“We are seeing much less of a heavy foundation look,” she says.

“It is becoming more and more popular – and generally looks much more flattering – when you can actually see your skin through your make-up. This is especially true if you want to play with the bright colour trend.

“Keep the rest of your make-up really pared back and natural to keep the look modern and not trashy.”

Ms Thompson suggests wiping make-up off your eyelids and cheekbones to reveal your natural skin colour and adding gloss accents to the high points of the face.

HAIR TODAY:

Toni & Guy national educator and Subiaco salon owner Tracey Laing says the hottest hair trend for 2011 is the bold, graphic cut.

“Those shapes have got a bit of a power chic attitude, and they’re a bit edgy,” she says.

Ms Laing says classic shapes like the bob will be modernised with bold fringes, a lot of texture and layers.

“Rather than thinking Courtney Love, though, this look will be a lot more finished,” she says.

“It’s a lot more glamorous and high fashion while still being a bit more disordered and textured.”

2011 Hairstyles ImageBalayage was a big trend last year but Ms Laing says 2011 will be all about colour to complement the cut.

“There won’t be one dominant colour,” she says. “The key will be fresh, expensive and glamorous-looking colour that has good tone to it.

“The look we’re seeing is moving towards glossy, healthy colours.”

We’ll be seeing more voluminous hair on the streets and she predicts the topknot will definitely carry into the new year.

“It does suit most face shapes and ages,” she says.

NAILING IT:

Celebrity manicurist Ali Veras, who has shaped the nails of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman and Kylie Minogue, says nails will be bright and playful in 2011.

“Bright and bold shades of turquoise, tomato red, fuchsia and coral are all the rage this season and will make fingers and toes pop,” she says.

“I am really loving Zoya’s new Flash summer collection, which includes the perfect turquoise cream, a vivid tangerine and a cherry red.”

You don’t necessarily have to use the same polish on your toes and fingers, she says.

“Many of my clients like a more neutral or pale shade on their nails and take a more anything goes approach to their toes.”

Graffiti Nails, Coolest 2011 Trend

Create your own nail art!

Written by Susann Byman Ruud for Fashionmarketinglessons.

That the Swedes have always been on the fast lane of  creating and following trends is not news, however, for Christmas during my family Holidays, I discovered (in a gift from my sweet sister) a Swedish product by Isadora Cosmetics, that was both innovative as it was trendy and fashionable, but the best thing about it is that nobody will be able to recreate your look, not even you, as each time it is used it gives very different results!
What I am referencing to is Isadora’s Graffiti Nail Art line, an invention that can in matters of minutes transform your look into a unique, cool, fashionable and fabulously trendy and glam style, just by applying a bit of grafitti nail varnish on top of your already existing polish! And the best yet, it can cover up nail with chipping colour! Talk about express beauty treatment 🙂
Apply one of five differently coloured topcoats over your mani and then wait a few seconds – it begins to contract and crack, leaving you with a nail art-effect finish that doesn’t look like it was achieved by a mere swish of a polish brush. Six shades are available (black, white, blue, yellow, pink and green), giving you tons of possibilities for making fab contrasts.

 

Not convinced? Watch the video below using the black version over a blue base.

 

 

A tip though is to try it out with different under colours, as well as top graffiti colours and brush strokes, as the art / design differ quite much.

So go ahead and play around, and get ready to look like you just got out of Hollywood’s finest Nail Salon!!
Good Luck!

 

Graffiti pattern in just one stroke. Be trendy, have fun and express your nails – save time and money by doing it yourself with IsaDora Graffiti Nails!
