I basically want to explain why I haven't posted very much in the last few months. I believe I may have spoken about attending school in past entry's but have not fully explained or spoke about what I've learned so far.
Starting on Oct 1st 2012 I began to attend a school in Toronto called Complections. This school specializes in make-up art and design. I have chosen their 26 week Comprehensive course which will cover Fashion Photographic make-up, Film & Television make-up, Theatrical make-up, Facial Hair & Knotting, Prosthetic make-up, and a short course on styling hair.
So far I have completed my the 3 week hair course, and 6 week fashion photographic course. I have already learned so much more about make-up and the application. The first course I took at the school was hair. Since hair really isn't my strong suit I did have some difficulties in the class. There was definitely moments where I wanted to give up and wondered if I could even do it. I come to understand and realize how important it is to have hair skills when doing freelance make-up in Toronto. It will be something I will definitely have to continue on practising. Through out our 3 weeks in hair I took a few different pictures of up do's and styling we did in class, as well as my final fantasy hair project.
My next course was Fashion Photographic make-up. I was excited to finally be starting makeup. In Fashion we learned the fundamentals of applying a clean fresh day look, and how important it is to have flawless skin. We then went of classic looks such as natural "day" face, smokey eye, winged eyeliner, simple washes of color, ect. We then went over the signature make-up looks from different decades. Starting at the 1920's and working up to 1970's. We also touched on bold and wild runway looks. During this time we learned about the different features of the face and how to address them specificity. At the end of our course we are given one day where we are supplied models and are given the opportunity to have a photo shoot. These photos are then developed and blown up to be used in our portfolios.

So far I have had a lot of fun attending Complections. Everyone has been so awesome, and so much fun to work with. I have made some awesome new friends and hope to create some life long connections. :)
Next week we will be starting our week of Facial Hair & Knotting. This is something I have never done in my whole life so I am interested to see how I will do. A whole new learning experience.
So in the grand scheme of thing I wish I could be blogging more. I have recently bought new products that I am dying to blog about but it has been difficult to find the time. I hope to continue to update on school, and have some fresh new blogs rollin out soon.
Peace & Luv
