about this video:

with special event makeup, you need to be highly aware of the fact that cameras will most likely be present… to capture the moment for all eternity!

you’ll want to make sure the makeup you apply is light enough that the dim, special event lights won’t make it look too dark and deep…and, at the same time, is defining enough that the face will not be washed out from the camera’s flash.

in this video, robert will walk you through a really beautiful special event look. it’s fresh, clean, pretty…and still defining.
