Cosmetology skills are very important when it comes to choosing a career in cosmetology. There are some basic skills you need to keep in mind while going for a cosmetology career. In this article we shall discuss some important cosmetology skills.
Clean the Palette
Cosmetology is just like painting. The face is the canvas and the makeup is the medium with which you express yourself on the canvas. It is important for the canvas to be clean in order for the work of art to be precise. Therefore it never hurts to invest in a good cleanser. A lot of times we cleanse around the face but forget the neck.
But the neck is as important an area as the face for the make up to take proper effect. The ideal way is to work the face wash in a circular motion round your neck and face. This helps to get rid of the dead skin. The face not only becomes clean but also smooth and clear.
After this, the next step is the use of a toner. This helps to restore the Ph balance of the face. If there was any residue left, the toner helps to get rid of that too. The last step in the daily face care ritual is to use a moisturizer. But you have to choose a moisturizer that suits your skin type.
A wrong moisturizer can very well close your pores and cause discomfort. The mark of a good moisturizer is made by the fact that it has at the minimum 15 SPF and also does not hamper the skin’s breathing. This helps in two ways. Firstly, it protects the skin from harmful UV rays. Secondly, it ensures that the foundation of your make up does not crack up.
Apply Bare Minimum Make Up
There are certain ways to applying makeup. A lot of expensive products in various parts of your face does not necessarily mean good make up. It has been seen that sometimes people will use a lot of foundation and concealer all over the place. This is not a right way to apply makeup.
Concealer should be applied in minute quantities around the under-eye portion. There is a method to do this.
Look up, use the ring finger to apply it on your under eye but in a rolling way. The correct way to apply foundation is to use foundation brush. This will also make sure that the foundation is applied in an even manner all over the place.
The foundation application should be started in the middle of the face and slowly blended towards the edges. A small quantity is enough. Some translucent powder can be used to complete the base. To apply this powder some large fluffy brush should be used.
Applicators are Difficult to Use!
Blushes and eye shadows often come with some applicators. But they are very difficult to use. So it is better not to use these applicators. The problem with the applicators in the eye shadow pack is that they create unwanted and hard lines. This is not where it ends however. They also crease and crack.
