Makeup for Speakers? Yes. Even men? Yes. It’s always applied to the faces we see on TV, Video, & Film, Ad’s in magazines. From my experience in media work, having had a lot of make-up applied to my skin, I’ve learned quite a bit about what is good and
what is bad for my skin. I also wanted to carry some make-up with me to media events, because sometimes there wasn’t a make-up Artist available. So, I carefully watched the technique of make-up application and in what order different products were applied to my face. I learned how to be self-sufficient, capable of correctly applying my own make-up if necessary.
In this process, I’ve discovered 2 products that work well for me. In this video, we’ll look at the use and application of both. But first, let’s talk about how I choose and test products.
I look for products that afford ease of use, are Hypo-allergenic, and are conveniently portable. Remember, with any skin care product, choose one that best fits your skin-type. Investigate on-line, talk to friends, ask questions in stores and determine what’s right for your skin type.
As I mention in the video, I have ‘combined’ skin type. That means it’s dry in some areas of my face, but oily in other areas. That can be a problem to work with. Some products that I like don’t work evenly on my face. Other products result in breaking-out or mild acne. It can be easy for some people or more difficult for others like me.
If you are going to do your own make-up, which I believe is very possible, then at the beginning, decide that you are going to have to take chances and experiment with several products. Now let me be very clear about these points:
1. The price of an item has little to do with the compatibility with your skin. Expensive doesn’t mean it will work for you.
2. I have been give advice by Cosmetics “experts” in several very expensive, fashionable Department Stores. Frequently the result was unpleasant.
3. If you have oily type skin, you may be told that “this product is ok for you because it doesn’t contain oil.” The results of that product can still clog the pores on your face.
Finally: you must test, test, test. Only YOU will know what you like, what product feels good and looks good. So, be Brave!
