We’ve all heard the old adage: “Practice makes perfect!” And as anyone who has tried to pick up a new sport, hobby or started a new line of work knows things take time and doing is part of being.  Make-up artistry is no different, and just as a professional baseball player goes to practice five days a week and works on their fast pitch and pop-ups the make-up artist or makeup lover needs to condition and practice their craft. But how does the avid makeup enthusiast practice the art of make-up? One advantage the professional make-up artist and student have over the millions of beauty addicted people of the world are willing participants, face upon face waiting to be painted and adorned with our skills. But, one secret weapon and used from novice to pro is the Face Chart.

The face chart is an artists map to unleash new and inspiring looks, practice the tried and true and really get a feel for placement and color combination.  Just as a painter or sketcher uses paper or a canvas to create their art makeup artists can use a face chart to document and execute any look or style.  As a working professional makeup artist I love to use face charts to come up with new and inspiring looks and really to just let my creativity flow, (my clients don’t always want to be used as my genie pig.) An amazing person and artist the  talented New York city based makeup artist and skincare specialist Rudy Miles has the face chart that I live by and recommend to all my colleagues and friends. squareup.com/market/beautybyrudy/makeup-face-charts .

The 50 sheet special textured “skin like” double sided paper pad is ideal for any makeup artist from beginner to pro. If you want to develop your talents, practice the always popular smoky eye, or just let your creativity flow have the tools to do so. There is no limit to your creativity and remember there are no rules, it’s make-up make it FUN!!!!!

Nick Barose, once again shares his magic with us!  Recently, he glammed up the gorgeous Sarah Shahi, from the show Fairly Legal. The look was from premiere in NYC for her new film Bullet to the Head with Stallone.

” We went with mauvy, cool tone pinks on eyes and lips instead of the usual fresh girly pinks because we wanted a more sophisticated sexy look of cool pinks as opposed to girly, fresh faced which regular bright pink make up would create”

GET THE LOOK:

Look for icy pink with a hint of blue, cool tones in it so you can wear pink and look more grown up as opposed to overly sweet and girly.
