Maquillage Professionel Class: Days 2 & 3

And I'm back! Sorry for not posting for more than a week. As some of you may know, I recently went to Cambodia for vacation with 2 friends. Still in awe with all the temples I saw. Anyhoo, I'll save that for another post. Let me just give you a quick overview of my Day 2 & 3 at makeup school.

DAY 2 - Eyebrow Correction and Facial Contouring

On this day we learned about the proper way to shape eyebrows. Like I said in my previous post, eyebrows can help frame your whole face, making it more symmetrical. I found this day exciting since you know how much I love eyebrow shaping. Hihi. Also, it was my first time to use a gel based eyebrow product from MUFE. Challenge accepted!

We also discussed facial contouring and highlighting, another important step to achieve good makeup look. These techniques will help achieve a perfect oval shape. It can also emphasize your good facial assets and hide a few imperfections. There were 2 methods introduced and one of which is dry contouring. This method is what I've been using for the past 2 years. But the next method, which is wet contouring, is something new to me. I've heard of it from other makeup artists but it's my first time to try it out myself. Ms. Mikee encouraged the experienced MUAs to try out wet contouring for the whole face.

I got my pretty friend Leslie to model for me and after my hands-on, here's the result.
