What Is Makeup Artistry? Everything You Need To Know

What is makeup artistry? Art comes in all different forms, and in many views, architecture is a form of art. I am here to bring light to a different form of architecture that may not be thought of in the average mind. Makeup artistry is something many people consider a drop-out career or a job for pretty high school girls who aren't smart enough to go to college. Truth be told, makeup art is a skill to build on and a natural talent, much like architecture. In De Architectura, one of the first books ever written on architecture by Vitruvius, the author describes a good building.

3 Items

1. Durability – it should stand up robustly and remain in good condition.

2. Utility – it should be useful and function well for the people using it

and 3. Beauty – it should delight people and raise their spirits.

When I am working on a client for makeup, these are the exact things  I keep in mind during my work. It has to last an entire day and night, it has to work well for the client, and it has to raise spirit and self-esteem, if just for an evening.

Like every good building, the face must be prepped with a flawless foundation. This means no wrinkles, acne, or discoloration. Just perfect. This preps the entire face for a beautiful job done. Just because my type is liquid, does not mean that it's not the same basic idea.

Attention to detail is the next most important part. The eye makeup must be applied near perfection, as to not make any eye sores for other people. Adding one green brick on a wall of red is basically the same idea.


So you see? Putting a spin on a popular phrase, architecture is in the eye of the beholder. What is makeup artistry? Now you know! Furthermore, please leave your thoughts and comments below.
