Here is a list of a few things you will need to ensure you get the most out of your virtual makeup class.
Makeup is simply a play on lighting. We add color to our skin which reflects in the light to make the eye see what we want it to see, BEAUTY! Having a good light set up will ensure the artist can see the details of your skin clearly which makes it easier to walk you through proper makeup application. Good lighting also helps the artist assist you with choosing colors which complement your skin. Natural white light is best. Avoid warm lights which may change the color of your skin and undertone.
A QUIET SPACE
After all, you are paying for a private makeup lesson with a professional artist who is assisting you in customizing a look and helping you develop a new makeup routine. Having a space where you are free of distractions and interruptions is a must.
FULLY CHARGED ELECTRONICS
If you are using your iPhone, Tablet or Laptop, make sure you have the charger nearby and a full battery. The class may be 90 minutes or more and you do not want your device to call it quits while you are in the middle of learning proper eyeliner placement.
CLEAN FRESH SKIN
Be sure to wash off old makeup. Yes, that means the mascara as well. Freshly washed and moisturized skin is the first step in all makeup applications.
YOUR MAKEUP BAG
You can’t have a class without your makeup bag. Bring all of the items you will use to achieve your desired look so you can learn how to apply them professionally. Be sure your tools and disposable items are clean and laid out within arm’s reach.
You can use the vanity in the bathroom, a personal standing mirror, or a wall mounted mirror. You will need to set up your electronic device in front of the mirror and facing you so you can look in the mirror as you apply the makeup and the makeup artist can watch and coach you along virtually.
Proper hydration makes your skin happy but you may also need to take a few sips here and there while we are knee-deep in the lesson. There will be lots of girl-chat going on and your throat may get dry so bring a bottle of water and sit it to the side. Don’t forget the straw.
