If a client asks for no eye makeup do u respect that ?


Yes of course! A makeup artist is only as good as their happy customers. A happy customer will recommend you further.

Do you find it nauseating to do ppls face when they have not good skin/acne/oily etc

Do you clean your brushes from face to face.

I don't find it nauseating at all.

I have multiples of most brushes so I don't have to. I do have an on the go brush cleaner when needed. It's the one from cinema secrets.

There are many.
Mac retro matte liquid lip color
Revlon ultimate colorstay and colorstay overtime
Huda beauty liquid matte lipstick
Lip sense liquid lip color
KVD beauty everlasting liquid lipstick
YSL liquid matte lip stain
Stila stay all day liquid lipstick
Anastasia Beverly hills liquid lipstick

Keep in mind the more layers you put on the longer it will last.

Thank you OP.
For tinted moisturizer- what would be a great one for $20 or less?

How do I pick the right shade for me of either the tinted moisturizer or the foundation powder?

These 3 are good options.
Colourpop hylaronic acid tinted Moisturizer
Nyx bare with me tinted skin veil
Wet N wild bare focus tinted hydrator

Picking your color can be hard since you can't walk into a sephora and try the colors, sephora doesn't sell low budget items such as these. You need to figure out your skin undertone- warm cool or neutral. Then walk into a store that sells these such as a CVS, rite aid, etc and hold the bottle near your neck. Find a spot with decent lighting, preferably natural light and look in a mirror to see if it matches. If unsure between 2 colors, choose the darker one. Hope this helps.

It depends. There are some high end that are really good and nothing can compare but some really cheap products that are amazing too! Depends on the specific product and brand.

It would take forever to list my favorite picks for high end and budget. Give me one category of makeup and I'll tell you my picks.


Can you tell me for the face/skin? Such as primer, concealer, foundation.
I really want to know if it's worth spending more $ for any of these categories.

When I started wearing eyeliner (back in the 80's) everyone lined the upper and lower lid. Seems like that changed & lately women are only lining upper lid. What's your thinking about that?

It's true that many makeup artists are only lining the top but personally I like to line the bottom as well because it open the eyes and makes them look bigger. Unless someone already has big eyes then I'll line in the water line.
