Want to get a headstart on your makeup artist career? Need some insight into how the pros use their makeup kit  for stunning results? Then you're in the right place, as we look at some tips on how the top Australian makeup pros like Rae Morris and Chantelle Baker have the success they do.

What separates good makeup artists from great ones? 

That's a great question. The answer is that a good makeup pro will be able to recreate flawless looks again, but a great one will create unique looks for every client. Those makeup demo videos you see that make your jaw drop are created by the greats.

What are some makeup tips by makeup artists?  

As beauty courses online  show, there can be a fine line between great and not-so-great results for your clients. So, if you're ready, let’s take a look at a few tips from those at the very top of the industry. 

  • #1 - Definition For the Lower Lashes

The majority of MUAs out there will avoid applying mascara to the bottom lashes, so they don’t make their clients look like racoons. However, you can avoid this by applying the mascara not for length but for depth and colour. Make-up course  training teaches that this is done by placing the wand on the lash line and wiggling it backwards and forwards.

  • #2 - Stunning Smokey Eyes

While beauty short courses online aren’t likely to recommend doing so, if you leave your eyeliner on overnight, you’ll get a stunning smokey look for your eyes with minimum effort. It offers a look that is hard to replicate, but we recommend only doing so when you’ve swapped out your best pillowcases, as it can get messy! 

  • #3 - Eliminating Peach Fuzz

Vellus hair is the official name for the ‘peach fuzz’ or baby hairs that ladies have on their faces. Of course, shaving is a big no-no, but there is a way of making them invisible. The trick is to add your foundation and powder and then run a makeup brush down the face using multiple strokes. What this does is lay those hairs down so they’re flat against the surface of the skin.

  • #4 - Cheeks With a Healthy Glow     

Make-up online course training covers the fact that is highlighting makeup - the kind you see celebs wearing on the red carpet - allows you to create a healthy, glowing look for clients. Highlighters themselves can be a little over the top, so apply some blusher followed by a skin-brightening primer for a more subtle effect, and you can create a truly stunning look. 

  • #5 - Gorgeous, Bright Eyes           

Last up, we have a pro tip to make the eyes come alive! The white of the eyes is what creates the contrast, and by adding a blue pencil liner to the upper lash line, you’ll magnify the intensity significantly. It also gives the appearance of thicker, fuller lashes. In makeup, it’s often the smallest of details that have the biggest effect.
