One of the best parts of my career is sharing the information I have learned with up and coming artists. Every month I have the opportunity to work with new students in the Taylor Andrews Beauty Makeup Artistry Course. It is so great seeing how far their skills have come in just two short weeks. We wrap up each class with a professional photo shoot to showcase their talent and creativity. Here are just a few shots from the May class. Great job girls!
When I was 21 and just getting serious with makeup I went
into the department store and asked a Lancome artist for their assistance about
what colors would look best on me, and how to apply it.While working with me,she said something I have never forgotten.She said, "Sherri you have beautiful
eyes, if I were you I would play
those up.”I expected her to
notice my flaws and tell me how to correct them.Instead she focused on what she saw as my strengths and how
to bring them out.That experience
was a valuable lesson for me on focusing on the positive.Since that day I have always tried to
look at what I like about me and not the negatives.Every woman has something unique and beautiful about
her.Whether it is flawless
skin,stunning lips,captivating eyes or cute dimples when
you smile.Find out what yours is
and play it up!
The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without
confess the secrets of the heart.
One of the most frequently asked questions I hear is,“How do I make my eyes stand out?”So lets start there. If you want your eyes to really pop, remember that opposites attract. Choose shadows, liners and mascara that contrast with your eye color. Whether your eyes are blue, green, brown or hazel, using opposing makeup colors will always make them dazzle.
Below are a few basic guidelines to follow when choosing colors for the eyes.
