MUD Studio in SOUTH AFRICA launching in April

Being a huge MUD supporter and having first being acquainted with the brand at IMATS 2 years ago, I know that the MUD brand has so much to offer in terms of not only makeup BUT education too. The fact that showrooms rolled out across the country throughout last few years, is great for professionals and consumers alike to have products with not only the best quality but great prices and multiple uses available which easily rival some of the other brand names that have dominated the South African shores for long. MUD is not just about a product that you buy and use though, they are about understanding, education and techniques of how to effectively use their products for the best results from the products you buy from them. NEW-MUD-STUDIO

This is because when MUD was founded in 1997 in North Hollywood, California their main focus was not just amazing products, it was about the education and world class training facilities. The MUD curriculum and teaching style is being made available locally in order to improve the quality of our professional makeup services, beauty salons, image consultants and training institutions and not to forget the end user consumer who will receive the best results from using the products correctly. Brenda Botha is the owner of the MUD South Africa brand and she has made it her mission to make sure that South Africa is not left behind in the dust with the renowned MUD standards of training. Hence the MUD Studio concept is launching in April and it something for everyone to get excited about. Continue reading

MAKEUP FACE CHARTS – Make Use Of It!

Hey there.  Me again!

Ok, so let me say it like it is.

I guess the reason why I am quite good at makeup applications (Yes, I admit it), could be due to the fact that I am quite artistic.  Since a very young age I could draw well.  Blending the pencil lines.  Learning where and how to shade was no mission for me.  I used to have friends who couldn’t even draw stick men.  I’m not bragging, but in general makeup artists have some level of being artistic in one way or another.

(haha, so someone just told me I sound UBER VAIN with what I said above.  Look, all I’m saying is that if you’re creative (naturally) it’s easier to catch on the makeup groove.  Those people who could only draw stickmen, couldn’t apply makeup either! haha.  All I’m saying is that whether you’re naturally artistic or not, face charts is a good way to practice the art of makeup!)

I would look at a photo and sketch it.  It would almost look the same.  So what am I saying here?  Makeup FACE CHARTS   “trained” me in a sense.  I downloaded the chart.  Looked at the picture and pretty much did the same  on my face.

Do you have trouble applying makeup?  As in which colours to use?  Have you made use of FACE CHARTS?

Check out these complete FACE CHARTS.  Try to apply the same on your face.  It really helped me.  It will help you!

So print those FACE CHARTS and get out those colouring pencils and practice! (Use pencils if you don’t want to waste your makeup)

Being a professional makeup artist or just having a great talent at makeup, is knowing what goes on where first to achieve the look in the pictures above.  But, for those who want to start somewhere.  This is a good way to start.
