This week was focused mainly on the eyes, eye socket, eye lashes, eyeliner etc…
We started the week with learning the Socket Eye Technique, a classic look that involves defining the natural socket of the eye. We learnt the art of Curling Lashes and how a proper curl can make lashes look longer, thicker, fuller, and assists the eyes appear larger and more awake. Other techniques we learned included application of False Lashes (Strip Lash), application of Individual Eyelashes (clusters), and the use of Pencil Eyeliner & Smudging technique.
One of the highlights for me was learning the Classic Eye Technique (Bridal) – focus here is on creating a classic 3 dimensional look to assist the photographer to create awesome images on the big day. This is such an important technique to master especially if you have aspirations of creating looks for photography!
We also had heaps of practical application this week, can’t beat hands on experience to support all the theory we are ploughing through.
I forgot to mention last week we received our ‘Glamazon’ assignment which is due to be delivered next week. This assignment is our opportunity to draw on our creative side by using a Creative Mood Board to pull together a unique look and highlight the elements used to create that look. I’d better get to it!
