|Section 1: Introduction|
In our everyday lives, we think of makeup as a product that is almost exclusively worn by women. In the photo and video world, all things are equal. In this video you will learn why everyone can benefit from a bit of makeup. We'll show how to mask blemishes, even out skin tones, reduce shine, contour the face, and make the eyes pop.
|Section 2: Makeup and Skin Types|
Skin type can be important when factoring in what makeup to use and how to prepare the skin for makeup. In this lesson you will learn how to approach different skin types.
When getting into makeup, you will see a lot of terms like primer, concealer, foundation, powder, and more. In this lesson you will learn what these types are and what they are typically used for.
Just like paint, makeup requires different tools to apply different types. In this lesson you will learn about the various tools used to apply makeup.
|Section 3: Makeup for Photos and Videos|
Makeup for Photography
High-power strobes and telephoto lenses allow us to see faces in great detail, and getting the makeup right is critical. In this lesson you will learn how photography changes how you apply makeup. We'll take a "less is more" approach, and show how makeup reflects light differently depending on your flash.

Sometimes it's impractical to hire a makeup artist because your project doesn't have the budget or you are shooting some quick-turnaround work.
