MUD Makeup Application Techniques

In our makeup artist school, students learn effective makeup skills that consist of facial analysis, base matching and general application, correction, contouring, and highlighting with an added focus on eyes and lips. Here are some of the basic skills and concepts you will learn in the MUD makeup program offered at our makeup artist school in Bloomingdale, Illinois. 

Facial Analysis: A significant process for healthy skin care, skin analysis helps determine a client’s skin type, skin condition, and the best treatments to use. 

Contouring: Acquire the ability to alter the shape of someone’s nose, eyes, lips, and other facial features through the technique of shading. 

Color Theory: All participants in the MUD makeup artist training program at our spa school will grasp a general understanding of the color spectrum to best compliment a person’s complexion with the appropriate color scheme. Learn to match a client’s skin type with the perfect foundation to conceal blemishes, acne, and any unwanted spots on the face area. 

Highlighting: The students in our MUD makeup program will learn the art of highlighting — a makeup application that attracts light to the face, creating definition and the illusion of brightness. 

Eyeshadow: Apply multi-dimensional eyeshadow through the process of blending, transitioning, shading, deepening, and highlighting to define the eyes.
