Yesterday Joanne had her Make Up lesson with Rozlyne Vidal. A lesson is a little more involved than just a makeover. Rozlyne, Make Up Artist, did Joanne's right hand side of her face and Joanne did the left hand side to practice the techniques of blushing, highlighting, contouring, blushing, eyes and lips. A lesson usually takes 2 hours and you bring your make up bag with you so Rozlyne can use what you have and pick out the gaps so you don't end up with a Make up graveyard of products you don't use.
This is what Joanne said about Rozlyne Vidal's Make Up Lesson
"I only ever wore make-up for special occasions, and always
applied it using guess work. When Rozlyne told me I would me making up
half of my face like a professional (she showed me on the other side),
I didn’t believe her. She was a great teacher. I especially loved
learning about contouring and highlighting- 2 things I never knew about
applying make-up, and yet make such a difference! The great thing was,
she used my make-up where possible, and advised what I should buy to
fill my gaps. A little more practice, with the help of my notes, and
I’ll be able to have a professional look for those special occasions,
and a natural look each day. Thanks for such a fun and educational
experience Rozlyne. It was a great day!”

a special treat, I have asked Rozlyne to share some of her secrets with
us. I highly recommend a one-on-one Make Up lesson, which I did last
year, and I feel so much confident in applying make up, experimenting
with colours, using the right tools etc. All thanks to Rozlyne's
1. Always use a
Primer before you apply your foundation. It will make the foundation
last and look more even (Armani primer and MAC Primer are great and
Clarins also has a great product to prepare the base of your make up
called “Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch”).
2. The best way to
test your foundation colour is to apply it to your jawline if you can't
see the colour, it is the right one for you. If the colour stands out
for being too light or dark it is not the correct shade, keep looking!
The inside of the wrist is not necessarily a great match to the skin
tone of your face. Always apply your make-up in a well lit room with
3. Use light shimmery colours when you want to
make an area bigger or where light hits your face; like the top of your
cheekbones (this is called highlighting), the centre of the nose, the
cupid's bow of your lips, the centre of your chin and inner corner of
your eyes (MAC has a great Pigment that works well called vanilla).
Use Dark and matte shades when you want to draw less attention to an
area (this is called contouring); like the bottom of the cheekbones,
the bridge of the nose and also the sides of the nose, the temples of
your forehead up to the hair line, your neck muscles on either side and
for extra cleavage a v-shape in the décolletage (The secret is to use
to an angle brush MAC do a great one it is number no 169).
5. Only apply blush to the "apples" of your face that appear when you have a big smile.
When it comes to applying eye colours the secret is use a combination
of lighter (near inner corner and underneath eye brow) to darker
colours towards the edge of the eye. Then Blend, Blend, Blend with a
blending brush (MAC no 239) or your fingers to make the edges smooth
and the overall look is amazing.
7. Apply a cream or white
pencil to the inner part of the lower lid to make your eyes appear
larger (newsreaders have been using this trick for years!)
To prevent lips from bleeding, apply a lip pencil in a colour matching
to your lip colour and fill in the whole lip to make your lipstick
last. Apply a little gloss for some extra glamour.
your brushes a regular wash with hot water, shampoo and conditioner to
clean out all the excess oils. Dry them off with a towel and let them
air-dry really well before the next use. You will be amazed how nice
and soft they turn out.
10. Remember to allow enough time to apply your make-up and practice makes perfect!
