Who better then to advise on this subject!

WORKING WITH PHOTOGRAPHIC / NATURAL LIGHTING
Where you do your makeup is not always glamorous. And, where it is applied - in natural light or studio light - will effect how it looks on camera. In this section you will be given top tips on how to deal with any lighting issues & Jacqui likes to share some of her entertaining stories about her past experiences.
Yes, that’s correct MISTAKES. Everyone makes them!! But when the pressure is on & time is of the essence & you have made a “boo boo”, how do you correct it? Or, you may find the director has changed his mind, doesn’t want smokey eyes but, instead, wants natural & you have just 10 minutes to change a whole look. Don’t panic! We will teach you how to make changes & corrections in seconds!! This will be invaluable and every bit as important as knowing how to apply makeup.
