Monday Makeup Tip 18! By DHM

What is a masterclass?

So my first ever Masterclass was launched on 1st October 2016! What a launch it was! From the positive feedback, I have decided to continue with these in the new year! And why stick to the UK! Hint....

However, for the purpose of this blog, I wanted to emphasise the meaning of the term, "Masterclass".  What differentiates a masterclass from a normal weekly lesson?

In my opinion, and from masterclasses attended, a masterclass consists of a tutor who is enthusiastic and demonstrates expertise in that particular field. It is a class filled with great value, tips and great advice.  It also offers the trainee opportunities to create a similar platform for themselves.

Monday Makeup Tip 18 by DHM: Purchase eye-primer, glitter glue, and a bit of eye glitter for the festive season that awaits us.

Monday Makeup Tip 15! by DHM: 

My Skin vs. My Makeup

Skin is affected by: age, medication, weather, hormones, allergies and diet.

3 Factors contributory to skin appearance

1.    Melanin – pigment in skin
2.    Haemoglobin – oxygen/iron base of skin
3.    Carotene – antioxidants in orange/yellow/red fruit

Skin types range from dry/combination to combination/oily skin.  So before being creative know your skin type.
I did a previous blog on highlighting and contouring and came across a similar article in this month’s Skin Inc’s issue by Lisa Shor (The New Age Spa Institute).
Many of us have different face shapes and sizes and this will affect the way in which we highlight and contour our face.
However, contouring and highlighting is done best when we know our skin type.

Monday Makeup Tip 15 by DHM: Use a cream bronzer or highlighter if you have dry/combination skin.
Use a more powdered high definition highlighter and contour if you have combination/oily skin.
