Day 2 of the Make Up For Ever Pro Road Show was just as good as day one. The first class of the day was Red Carpet Beauty facilitated by Celebrity Makeup Artist Patrick Eichler. He was introduced by Mariel Guay of Make Up Forever.
The 2nd class of the day was HD For All facilitated by Joy Hom.
Joy stressed the importance of prepping the skin and keeping in mind that less is more when working in HD. You have to go softer with colors and texture because it will be amplified with the HD lens Stay away from frosty textures and dark colors if possible because they will be extremely dramatic. She also said it’s important to pay attention to your application. Be ware of the strokes and finger prints that may be left on the skin.
Above is Michael DeVellis introducing Lija Stewart who taught the 3rd class of the day titled The Beauty and Business of Bridal. The class served two purposes. Lijah had a Q&A portion at the beginning then she did an application towards the end. The Q& A portion was extremely helpful. She did a terrific job in answering questions about how to deal with issues when working with brides and their bridal parties. I’m very happy I attended this class.
Then she applied concealer under the eyes to highlight the area.Next she contoured the model’s cheeks to bring more dimension to her faceLijah believes in taking care of the skin first, so she did all of the face work before the eyes. In the above picture she’s working to give the bride a soft smokey eye.
Below are Lijah and I. I know I’ve already talked about how awesome Lijah is in my 1st post about my MUFE Pro Road Show Dallas experience, however I just wanted to reiterate just how amazing she really is as both an artist as well as a facilitator She teaches the type of class that keeps you wanting more. When you get to the end, you’re like “awww man, it’s over”. I’m thrilled that she’ll be facilitating a couple of classes at The Makeup Show Orlando. :-)
As I mentioned in the Day One experience of the Pro Road Show, Michael DeVellis stated there were 3 goals of this weekend. At the end of day 2, we completed the 3rd goal which was to network. Because Make Up For Ever is so totally awesome, they had a special Meet and Greet Social Cocktail event for all of the attendees at the MUFE Store in Dallas North Park Mall. It was after hours and pretty much open exclusively for us. How cool is that??? We had the opportunity to not only network with one another, but also MUFE staff.
