Creative Expression and Beauty Meet with Make-Up Artistry

creative make-upMake-up artistry is certainly an art form in its own right. With a face as your canvas, a brush in hand, and products like foundation, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and an eyebrow pencil, you can create the most beautiful works of art.

It is safe to say that more people practise this type of art than any other. While there are many who do sketches, paint on canvases, and do performance art, many people do their make-up either every day or a few times a week. Every person who puts paints their face is an artist. While most only do it for themselves and maybe a sister or a friend, there are those who choose to make this type of art a career.

What is great about this type of artistry is that is always seen. It is shown to the world when clients walk out on the runway during a fashion show, when they go to a glamorous event, when they walk down the aisle on their wedding day, or when they walk out on stage. Photos will be taken, photos will be posted online, and your artwork will be seen by many people.

You also get to experiment and work on many different faces – many different canvasses. This keeps things exciting. Perhaps you are naturally gifted when it comes to make-up artistry and are able to create stunning artworks without any formal training. If you want to take your skills to the next level, however, then signing up for one of our make-up artistry courses can help you refine your skills. Plus, you will get a certificate proving that you have completed your training and will have something behind your name to back up your skills.

When it comes to any art form, you do not want to necessarily stick to all the rules. You want to be creative and experiment. As François Nars said of this artistry: “Treat your makeup like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure – it can transform you.”

I am the designated photographer for the only internationally and nationally accredited make-up training institution which is celebrating is 52 years of operation. I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me. I shoot on location but also have my own studio situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.
