So its a style of its own right! Well according to the numbers that attended this weeks Plouise Masterclasses at our Temple bar Training Academy its defiantly a trend from an artistry point of view that so many makeup enthusiasts & makeup artists alike want to know how to do Plouise’s methods and they are by no means conventional and do break some traditional makeup ideas that we have come to think of as a must do’s in our makeup application routine. For example she will not set the liquids with a powder on the eyes or face before she starts with a more deeper colour. She directly goes on with the powder colour now most of us know that in theory that the powder will stick, not blend and become mucky? Right ? Well not so with Plouise’s trick. She uses a flat MAC concealer brush and continuously taps,taps,taps until the base concealer has set to a blendable finish and it really works. Her chosen concealer to use was MAC Select NW15 and she uses this on most of her looks regardless of skin colouring and then will do the same with MAC Studio fix liquid – the foundation is literally slapped on with her tapping and slapping technique and it leaves a wonderful full coverage on the skin and also with the continuous motion of the brush she sets the foundation for her then powder contour/highligters etc.
This was a truly wonderful day to see some very non typical application of products, her charming and witty personality get everyone in the class involved and such a large audience take away with so many new tips and tricks.
Plouise will be back at our Dublin academy this 2017 with dates yet to be confirmed.
