Makeup Art and Airbrush - The Nucleus of the Industry
Makeup art is and will always be the fundamental element of makeup artistry. There are many approaches to training and there is a plethora of philosophies with regards to techniques. The bottom line is, did the subject look better leaving your chair? Did the facial design meet the requirements of the shoot? Did it make sense to the character, advertisement, or the client in question? Did the makeup artist incorporate corrective makeup techniques with his or her own personal style, while delivering what the shoot wanted? These are important questions and a checklist for solid training.
While creativity is a huge part of an artist's development, it must be coupled with a knowledge of set procedures, corrective makeup techniques and the various industry looks that are common to the actor, the model, the sports anchor, the bride, et al. Understanding and executing the look asked for is one of many elements crucial for the success of a production and the career of the makeup artist.
