Third and Final Day of Mika’s Make-up Advanced Lessons

This post is a little delayed considering it’s now Sunday and the course was on wednesday but hey, better late than never!

Karin and Elizabeth showed us how to do airbrush make-up :-) We airbrushed the foundation and blush and then made up the eyes the traditional way. I have to admit I wasn’t too keen on the airbrush at first try. I felt as though I didn’t have as much control over what was happening as I do when using brushes and other tools. I was finished with my model quicker than the other two ladies were so I got to try it a second time, putting the blush on first and the foundation on second (the first time I did foundation first and blush on top) and that went a lot smoother than my first attempt! I got to try MAC Face and Body Foundation which we thinned down a little so that it would go throught the airbrush properly and not clog it up as the formula is a little bit too thick, then I got to try the Face Atelier. I think I prefered the Face Atilier although I don’t have a clue why! I guess people just get the feel of some products a lot quicker than others.

The thing with the airbrush is it’s very subtle when you’re putting on the foundation and a bit too easy to do too many layers. Definately takes a few goes to get the knack of it. Kudos to all the Airbrush MUA’s out there :-)!

Sadly, that was my last lesson for now but I may go back in the future for some more intense training on particular things but for now the course has ended. On the very bright side I got to learn soooo much from both trainers! I’m also getting to help out on a real life production due to meeting Elizabeth which is just amazing! Thank you to Karin at Mika’s for putting together a great personalised course for us, and thankyou to Karin and Elizabeth for being such fantastic teachers! X
