about this video:

one of the best things you can do to differentiate yourself as a professional makeup artist is to create your own trends. this means you need to learn how to take current trends and combine them into trends that work for people in their every day lives or for a photo shoot.

if you are working on a photo shoot, you’ll find there are many times the look you create has to be trendy, but also age appropriate for the job you are on. If you went full-on with a trend, it might be too much. That’s why you need to learn how to mix your favorite trends!
