The Art Of Makeup Designs

There are some interesting makeup designs created by the artists. These designs amazes me in a good way and of course when required an artists would create designs on model’s face relating to similar events like fashion shows, and some applied to auditions to promote certain arts to fit in whatever industry they wish to get accredited. As you can recall there are some pictures online are promoted by the artists – who designed best art on the model’s face. I have seen some of the most fabulous design ever. If I could have the money to travel and interview those artists from all over the world. They do have the amazing talents that inspire me so much. If you want to have that kind of art as a makeup artist you would have to attend some makeup courses from a certain modelling agency that offer that art course or the community college. The cost can be very pricy but it is worth it at the end. You will appreciate your art when you create one!

This design is just glamorous plus if I could design like this I’d definitely get more practice.

In my experience in the past, I have had only applied makeup on models for mother/daughter fashion show – I find it very inspiring and challenging. I believe an artists can have as much amount of fun working with models as they can. As an makeup artist, I don’t even consider makeup as my job but as the most glamorous and interesting hobby I will ever have.

Pink Like A Rose Eye Makeup

Hi Everyone,

Image

Image

 

 

I just wanted to share this beautiful picture of “Pink Like A Rose” eyeshadow because I thought you may want to try this on your own — most importantly to be elegant and creative. It is very challenging for me because there are no instructions for this type of eyeshadow, I always try to determine proper brush to use and yes there are few different eyeshadow brushes that you can use to create most refreshing look to match the makeup photo. I would suggest you to google “makeup” and look whatever comes up on there and you just have to determine if this look will match on you then go from there. The more practice you do the more you succeed in make up artistry and it had helped me practice and now I’m more expert in makeup artistry. Remember to get yourself better quality brushes because the proper brushes will help create same look as models but high quality can be expensive and I’d like to include Shany Cosmetics has the most high quality and well-pigmented makeup products anyone can ask for. I use Shany Cosmetics and I really love how well colours turned out for my eyes and I am a big fan of Shany Cosmetics so you can check them out at http://www.shanycosmetics.com and prices are very reasonable!

You can find Shany Cosmetics on twitter as well @ShanyCosmetics and they are awesome peeps!
