who want a more in-depth look at the fundamentals of makeup that are essential when working in film, TV, fashion, print, or bridal. What exactly are the fundamentals of makeup? They are the artistic elements (knowledge, skills and tools) that are
imperative to understand when one is doing make up application and/or special effects. This class covers color, skin tones, texture, contouring, color matching,
contrast, shading and anatomy. When one is just learning, the very first thing to understand is the fundamentals of art and how they translate to the art of makeup application. This class provides a more in-depth look at the fundamentals such as: facial
anatomy, color (skin tones, overtones and undertones) texture, skin care, and lighting transitions from
stage to HD including the secrets of the trade and makeup product lines. The class will also demonstrate proper makeup-station set-up, sanitation and business etiquette. Since these classes are taught in the Atelier method, we not only welcome class
participation, we encourage it. This intensive 'hands- on' instruction. As you begin to understand the fundamental, you will also begin to better understand the importance of how the makeup you're using, translates to the camera, because HD is unforgiving
