Today I was an assistant make up artist in a wedding. I did mainly the base for the other bridesmaids but with this lady I did the whole make up. I have learnt so much today! Will put up some practise looks I do as I still need to practise hair and make up.
Tip of the day
If you are getting a new foundation and want to get the nearest colour to your skin colour, don’t test it on the back of the hand or the forehead as these parts won’t match the rest of your body. To get that continuous colour from your face to body you need to put some onto your cheek leading to your neck. This way you can get the best colour match for your skin.
Something else that I found really helpful was that after I put the concealer under the models eyes the make up artist said to use this brush to buffer under the eyes so that the concealer blends to the skin more. It looked flawless and was a really good tip as sometimes I have this trouble.
These are called Beauty Blenders which the make up artist was using. I was really intrigued so after her explaining I really wanted to test it out. She said that if you add water to it , that it applies easier and is softer on the models skin. I kept mine dry as I couldn’t find any water but used it to buffer the foundation that I put on. It was really good. I would highly recommend this as its nicer on the models skin, its easy to clean and makes the foundation flawless.
The Sunday just passed was my first external work experience which I was assisting a hair and make up artist on a mock wedding. Basically it was to promote the venue for weddings. It was really fun and I learnt quite a lot. I will add a few things on here for you :) Unfortunately I’m not able to post any pictures yet until its on their website. But will put the pictures up when they are available!
Get rid of blackheads in 5 minutes. Half a lemon and 3-4 drops of honey. Rub the lemon on your face, emphasis the blackhead prone area like nose, chin, ect. Leave the lemon and honey mixture on your face for about 5 minutes, then wash it with cold water. You will see the results immediately. Additionally lemon juice will also fade other marks/spots on the face and the honey will moisturise.
Tip of the day
While everyone knows that bangs make your forehead appear a lot smaller, not everyone is willing to cut off their lovely locks. Instead, apply a matte (not sparkling!) bronzer to your forehead using a large brush. The bronzer creates a shadow and gives the illusion of a smaller forehead!

Tip of the day part 2
When creating prosthetic pieces such as flat pieces or big moulds, as a release agent washing up liquid mixed with water is very good and costs hardly anything! Make sure it is dry before you proceed to the next step though.
