I think it was last summer I did a Geisha tutorial. The idea behind the tutorial is I wanted to do something authentic. Not ‘inspired’ by but an accurate tutorial showing how to do Geisha makeup. Unfortunantly at the time I didn’t have my own place and the only lighting was natural daylight which anyone who lives in England knows can be extremely erratic.
Now I have better lighting and a bit more knowledge on Geisha makeup I’m planning on re-doing the tutorial
It will be a while till I have all the tutorial props I’ll need for this tutorial but yesterday the first tutorial props arrived! :D I’d heard makeup artist like Rae Morris rave about these kinds of makeup brushes and she really wasn’t kidding about how soft they are! It really is like a cotton ball on your face.
I’m almost tempted to purchase the Nars Yachiyo Kabuki brush and do a comparison since this brush cost me £3.69 while the NARS version is just under £40 and both of these brushes are really good quality so I doubt there would be much of a difference in quality, just a huge difference in price! The white brush is shaped better for blush and the black brush has the perfect shape for contouring.
Not entirely sure when the re-make of this tutorial will be up but probably some time in the summer by which time I’ll have hopefully finished/started painting the background and gotten together all the props to do this look justice.
