White, White and more White Base

As we continued through our periods in history, we were challenged by the fact that all 3 make-ups this week require a white base, each different and interesting.

18th Century, Queen Elizabeth 1 and Cirque Du Soleil, all have a different approach to their application and completed look.

White bases are difficult to work with and if you are not careful your base will be ruined with a term called “Fall Out”. When applying eye shadow the colour falls to under the eyes and this is very hard to remove, so great care is needed.

Penny gave us our first wig knotting class and showed us the importance of measuring a head for a wig or bald cap. We also learnt another way to pre-set the hair for a wig using pin curls.
