Today our Module 2 students learned how to do a mature makeup look at The Makeup Crew. They were given the chance to create their own looks and then presented them to the class.
Our tutor Sharleen Collins talked the girls through the mature client and the do’s and don’ts when doing their makeup. She taught the girls how to analyse their face shape, skin type, how to understand their desired look and execute it perfectly.
She gave the girls 30 minutes to create a look based on the pointers given, eg. certain colours and tones to stay clear of and her recommendations on what products to use. The students paired up and created their looks on each other before preparing a short presentation for the rest of the group.
The students presented each of their creations in a television interview format in preparation for jobs like Xposé. They spoke about their look, the products and equipment used to achieve it and why they used certain techniques.
Before and after photos were taken of each of the girls for their portfolios which will be used after the course to display their collection of work when applying for jobs.
Each week, a new topic is covered whether it be a classic smokey eye, a look from the 60’s or a skincare lesson so it’s always busy at The Makeup Crew!
