But then there are those days when my liner refuses to go on straight, my bronzer makes me look like an Asian Snookie, or my lashes refuse to curl. I had one of those days last week, and after walking into work wearing two very different winged tips on my eyes, my editor assigned me a new story: Go to makeup school and write about it. Even if she was not-so-subtly telling me that I suck at applying my own makeup, I eagerly took the assignment. Each school has different types of classes, from special effects courses that teach you how to make realistic-looking zombies and vampires, to high fashion-focused programs that show you daring techniques seen on the runway and in magazine spreads. After spending my mornings learning about color theory and how to (properly) hold a makeup brush, I can say I'm now totally confident in my makeup artistry skills. Step 2: Using a white eyeliner pencil, very softly feather the pencil over the natural contour of the lip.
Step 5: Apply a light shade of base foundation around the new lip line, blending to a soft edge with a lip brush. Remember, light colors reflect light, so using lighter lip colors will give a fuller appearance. I wanted to get these out to you so you could use them to create and document all of your pretty makeup looks for yourself.


If you click on the individual face chart, you should get a full sized image you can print out.
There is another face chart that mac has where the face isnt so boney do you have a link or a website to go to for that chart. You can try the office section of stores like Target, but specialty stores like Office Max will carry card stock paper. Some days I enjoy playing with all the different colors and get excited when my smoky eye turns out perfectly. Want to see the best techniques I picked up without spending the thousands of dollars (and crazy amount of time) it takes to go to makeup school yourself? 8: Get Angelina Jolie's lips without injections Before makeup school, I had no idea there was an ideal lip shape. Not only does this help remove the natural pigments of your lips for truer lipstick colors, but it can also help you realize where your liplines actually are. Or use the pencil to make lips fuller or thinner by drawing it past your natural lipline or within it. So, from your cupid's bow to each outer corner, then from your outer corner to the center of your lower lip.


Often makeup artists use face charts so that multiple artists can have a reference to one look, for events like fashion shows.
If you opt for that route, you might want to opt to avoid using cream products or anything that doesn’t dry on them, and possibly save them with some sort of protector over them, such as plastic or parchment paper when storing them to avoid transferring product onto other papers or objects.
Apparently, your lips are most balanced when the upper and lower lips are equal in size, or thickness, says Prior.
Finally, try this popular trick used on Victoria's Secret Angels to give the illusion of a fuller pout: Apply a dab of gloss to the top part of your Cupid's bow and to the center of the bottom of your lip. What you'll find here is what I'm now referring to as The Cliffs' Notes Guide to Being a Pro Makeup Artist.
