Hey !
I don't even wear makeup so I actually don't own any either, so I've been shopping a bit ;)
I'm sorry but I have no idea :(
Do you learn that in unit B ? I haven't started it yet cause I'm waiting on my kit to finish unit A......

Awesome ! I just finished my eyeliner application assigment ( B4 ) :)
Did the tape not work for you ?
Keep practicing, you'll get there, it took me a while and i found it very difficult, but i got there in the end.
Good luck ! :D

The tape definitely helped, thank you for that! I might look at using a pink eyeshadow instead of blush and see if that helps with more pigmentation.... or practice on my boyfriends arm, maybe his skin tone is better :lol:

I did it on someone else with a brown type blush colour, it worked better than pink.
Let me know how it goes !

I found using tape helped control the area I wanted to do the blending of the blush (same as for the eyeshadow blending); so it didn't look so 'smudged' out on the outside area and I used a small blending brush to control the amount of blush that I put down. I also found that doing bit by bit helped with the gradient effect instead of doing a lot at once than blending it out. You can use yourself as a model for your assignments but they do recommend that if your planning on pursuing a career in becoming a pro makeup artist to work on friends/family to get used to working on clients because they have different undertones, eye shapes etc.. :) :)
GOOD LUCK!!

Hi! I’m from VIC! I’m really struggling with trying to understand different skin tones and how I go about finding the right foundations to mix and match to get the right shade to match to model. But can’t start buying foundations if I can’t read skin tones :roll:
