Welcome to Part 2 of my recap of the Make Up For Ever Pro Artistry Class that was held in March 2014. To see part 1, click here. This is my 2nd post of the “Way Back When” Series. The 2nd class I took was Editorial Dark Beauty facilitated by Regional Artist Amber Lynn. As a warning, my battery was running low, so I missed some of the look being created. So, to recap what I didn’t get in pictures, she began by priming the skin with HD Primer. She used MUFE Face and Body 20 and let it sit a while to get a bit tacky, then blended to get just the right texture.
She used Aqua Brow to shape the brows with Pro Waterproof liner for the wing. She instructed us to never pull up the eye and to make sure that the inner corners are just as sharp as the outer wing. Also it’s very helpful step back frequently to check symmetry. Here’s Amber Lynn working on her model’s eyes.She used MUFE eyeshadows and blended them really well (even on the lower lash line), as well as the Aqua Eyeshadow Stick in 22E in the water water line to create the look.Then she did the lips. She mentioned that she understands how it can be difficult to get that perfect lip, so she showed us how she sometimes holds the lips to get a straight line. Great idea! Amber used Aqua Lip 19C with Lab Shine Gloss on top. For the cheeks, she used the very popular #92 eyeshadow with a touch (very lightly) of the fuchsia from the Flash Color Palette.
Amber Lynn did a great job with her makeup application and educating the class on the techniques she uses for editorial jobs. I hate that my battery ran out before I was able to get the total completed look.
Stay tuned for Part 3 of my recap of the Make Up Forever Pro Artistry Classes.
