Preparing Work Area and the Client for the Application of Make up


Prep Skin for Makeup Application

Professional makeup application is fundamentally different from the everyday at-home type.  As a beauty therapist, you will often be required to not only apply makeup, but offer comprehensive support and recommendations on the selection and application of various products.  In a salon setting, makeup application begins with a strict and regimented process of planning and preparation. This means ensuring you know how to set up and prepare the working environment and adequately prep skin for makeup application. Both the work area and the skin must be appropriately prepared, to allow for the safe and hygienic application of the products.  If you want to learn how to work with makeup like a pro, it all begins with thorough preparation.

This targeted tutorial focuses specifically on work area preparation and how to prep skin for makeup application. Explore effective equipment cleaning techniques, along with the importance of cleansing to prevent cross-infection and the use of hypoallergenic products.  Learn how to apply a variety of cosmetics confidently and professionally, including foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, face powder and everyday lip cosmetics.
