Fantasy Makeup Art
I have finally came to a decision on what I want to do for my Learning Project! In the past year I have been playing and experimenting with makeup. So far I have learned how to perfectly blend shadows and which brushes are most commonly used for certain areas such as blending eyeshadow, contouring and other things. However, with my current skill, I have only focused on makeup you could wear out on a daily basis. With this learning project, I am challenging myself to learn how to recreate fantasy makeup art and possibly Halloween make up looks. This will definitely take me out of my comfort zone and allow me to learn new techniques and further deepen my artistic skills when it comes to makeup.
Now I know for some people makeup can be a controversial topic. Some people believe that most individuals use makeup as a means to make themselves “more beautiful”, or they’re covering up “flaws”.
First of all I would just like to say that we are all beautiful in our own unique ways. Please, ladies and men, do not let anyone tell you any different! With becoming familiar with makeup, I have learned that it is a great way to express yourself through art, as well it is very therapeutic! When I am having moments of high stress-levels, I take myself to my makeup vanity and just blend my negative emotions away! So with that, this is my learning project! I hope you all enjoy this journey with me. Let the learning begin… along side many mistakes I’m sure!
