I started my makeup course!
I dont start proper classes until tomorrow ( I have ever monday off ) but I am so excited. I was in for 2hours last week for an induction day and so far, so good!
The 3 tutors that I have have all worked in tv, film, and fashion and have loads experience. One of my tutors is one of the makeup artists on The Tudors!!
The course content is brilliant as it covers high fashion makeup, to special effects makeup, to theatre and media makeup to airbrushing etc. This is definately one of the main reasons I chose this, it covers all types of makeup which is useful!
On the first day they showed us a portfolio belonging to one of the girls who did the course the year before! It was HUGE! There was so much work put into it! They warned us that it wasnt going to be easy and I have a feeling they're right! To make a great portfolio, im going to have to put alot of time and effort into it which I am more than willing to do. I just cant wait to get started!
Some of the looks that are required for our portfolio are High fashion, ballet/dancer, oriental/geisha, a certain period eg. 1920's, old age, an animal, and a victim of violence!
Also, they gave us the list of the Mac makeup kit we will be recieving and I could not believe it! There are about 60 products including 6 foundations, 3 concealers, 8 brushes, 16 eyeshadows, 4 lipsticks, powders and lip and eye pencils etc. OOh can't wait to get it!!!
I also have to get a special effects kit which is cool too!
Ill keep updating how I am getting on and what Im learning! So excited!
Until then xxx
