After working with MAC for several months now, I finally completed Basic today and I have to say it was lots of fun and extremely informative! For those of you who don’t know what basic is, it’s a training MAC sends all of their employee’s to for five days (Sorta like beauty school). During the five days we are taught anything and everything you need to know about MAC. From product knowledge, customer service, makeup application, different skin texture & shades, to face charts, highlighting contouring and even verbage (FABCE). We got to work one-on-one with each other to create different makeup looks while our trainer walked around and critiqued us. I really enjoyed this opportunity since I am a self-taught makeup artist and never really had any “real” training. The best part about the training is we get certified AHHHH…. I can’t wait till I’m working backstage at New York Fashion Week — My day will come soon.
Doodling like always! Jessica (my trainer) showing us the proper way to highlite and contour the face. Taking some notes Who remembers these lashes? they are discontinued. 😦My lovely little partner Adrianna after I did a lip demo on her using Lady Danger. Facechart workshop (My Fav) — can you tell I just love doing them Everyone working hard on their facechart. Thee most awesome trainer, Sandy. Love her! (excuse the poor lighting)Jessica demonstrating a Bridal lookPrepping the skin The final look (It looked so much better in person, but the lighting sucked)I transformed her bridal look into a dark smokey look by adding some lashes and carbon. haha We teamed up into groups to play a product knowledge game of course my team won woooohoooo team Viva girlzz rockkkk! lol Our last day of training awww… 😦
