level one: perfecting foundation

before you start:

view all getting started videos, as well as under-eye discoloration, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, and veins course videos.

what you’ll need:

  • moisturizer
  • concealer
  • translucent powder (like alison raffaelle)
  • foundation (you may want to have a few different shades on hand for stripe testing. you can also gather up a few different types of foundation formulas, such as mousse, mineral, and creme to powder.)
  • beauty blender or makeup sponge
  • mineral foundation #74 (if you decide to use mineral foundation)
  • detail powder/blush #76

about this video:

creating flawless skin is probably the most important portion of the apprentice level series.

to be a great artist for yourself or others, you MUST learn just how to make the most of any skin type, tone, or texture.

this video will teach you “the foundation” of good foundation! you will learn how to choose a shade by doing a stripe test, how to pick the correct formula for a specific skin type, how to understand the amount of coverage desired, and what type of finish looks best.

every good artist knows the importance of setting the stage for all color to follow.
