In this A2A Training session Natalia will take you through the basics of makeup and down the rabbit hole into special FX and performer-specific techniques, sharing her favourite tips, tricks, tools and products along the way. Using her experiences as a seasoned performer and professional makeup artist (MUA) for stage and screen...she knows what works and what is practical when you’re doing it yourself.
Natalia’s A2A Training session will be delivered online - consisting of an on-demand video and follow up Zoom meeting.
Natalia’s video will start with the basics of makeup: having a solid foundation to work from this A2A session will let you hone your personal makeup techniques starting with applying a flawless base whether that is skin tone, white or even purple!
With the growing overload of makeup tutorials on social media, let her simplify it for you – because not everyone on the tutorials are doing it ‘right’.
From a flawless foundation to what tools and products to use. When your fingers are the best tool, or maybe a sponge. She will talk about personal hygiene (very topical, and everyone should have always been doing!)
Throughout the video Natalia will chat about PRODUCTS: what is essential, where you can find them and costs to suit any budget.
Then we slide down the rabbit hole of tricks she often gets asked to do by performers: Getting rid of your eyebrows without shaving them; re-shaping your face; Old Age Makeup; even a little trick to effortlessly put on fake lashes!
She’ll dive into the world brusies, scars and blood!
You sweat a lot? Don’t worry she’ll cover that too!
You’ll leave with the confidence to make makeup more of a detail in your work and wanting to!
A 1 hour Zoom meeting will follow on from the A2A video where you can ask Natalia anything!
If you have a specific makeup question that Natalia doesn’t cover in the A2A video, now is your chance.
Email the question in no later then 24 hours before the Zoom meeting, and she will do her best to answer it with a demonstration.
Ask about anything: the industry, theatre makeup, products … you can even open the conversation to body makeup, contact lenses, more extensive Special FX. (eg: bald caps)
Prepare your questions and if you would like the possibility of a demonstration email them ahead of time to email@example.com
