My experience- Illamasqua’s School of Makeup Art !
So as you all have seen- through twitter, instagram & Facebook- the updates on my course in Illamasqua’s School of Makeup Art!
I have enrolled in this amazing course “mastering professional makeup” at Illamasqua’s flagship store – 20 beak street, London!
I must say- i’m impressed! I know a lot about makeup- but this helped in enhancing my professional skills through application.
The course was done in 5 days- taught by educational makeup artists CLAIRE & DANIEL – which I have the upmost respect for. They are super talented & very helpful & great in explaining things!
I do recommend this course if u have a little background in makeup cuz it is quite fast… They show you how to do something- then u have to do it quickly.
They were really helpful in explaining how to enter the makeup industry & how to deal with clients! I also really loved the part where you learn about the proper hygiene with your makeup and tools and how to avoid infections!
As many of you were asking- What did I learn in the course- lemme show you the full experience by pictures!
Arrived at Illamasqua’s flagship store
How amazing is this line? “WE ARE COLOUR- YOU ARE BEAUTY?!”
THE ENDLESS VARIETY OF MAKEUP THAT WE GOT TO PLAY AROUND WITH!
I was literally running around grabbing everything and trying it out!
Their amazing skin base foundations! One of my all time favs
ABOVE- the eyeliner cakes which we used for filling in the eyebrows!
Inside the class
So We have received a lot of free stuff – 11 brushes (full brush kit) & products for our own use!
One of my favorite tasks- LEARNING HOW TO TAKE BLENDING TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
Keep in mind- this is NOT an eye look- it is basically practice on blending. We used a white color and a black color. We had to create GREY.. in between…. so it had to be gradual! I loved how informative this was and the diff techniques you had to hold your brush!
Below: my eye! See how it is blended!
Below- Claire shows us how to create a CATWALK/editorial wet eye look!
Enjoyed working on erica’s eyes- a thick winged liner to suit her eyes!
Claire shows her students how to create a brow- what to do & what NOT to do… and it was great to see her show how to create a brow for the ones who barely have nothing or very little hairs!
Students below working on each other’s eyebrows!
Claire showing her students how to create a SYMMETRICAL lip- using DARK COLORS such as BLACK! It was super great that she used black- so we can see our mistakes clearly- It is all about symmetry!! that is what professional makeup relies on! If i used pinks or nudes I wont be able to see the mistakes!
For our final project- each student had to create a look on another student… It was up to us to do something creative or just beauty- I did a beauty look- smoky eyes and contouring. So below are the products I used.. and the mess I made later on
Beautiful erika above! Im so glad I got to work on a beautiful Japanese doll! It was challenging yet fun to work on mono lids (eyes with no crease) !
And Finally- I received my certificate! YAY!
All i can say is, thank you to Illamasqua for giving me the opportunity to learn makeup with new & unique techniques! I have really enjoyed my time 🙂
I LOVE U ILLAMASQUA
