Grooming for Cabin Crew Essay
Make Up Online Crew (Female)
Clean skin is a must before using makeup(cleansing,toning,moisturizer is important before makeup) and having the correct “tools” is a necessity. Invest in good quality brushes for your application, and use a good skincare range everyday. Using makeup is fun – Practice with color, balance, blending, light and shade, and you should look beautiful. Makeup is applied to the face to improve appearance – to emphasize the good features and make defects less noticeable. Color has the power to transform your face – and your mood – completely. Palettes of color in pure pastel shades and vibrant true colors offer choices for every woman to celebrate all her many facets of a very definite femininity. Use toner on your face first and apply moisturizer, to enable better blending of foundation/ concealer. (First clean your face with cleanser, use tonner according to your skin type and apply moisturizer, to enable better blending of foundation/concealer.*For Dry skin-Rose water, For Oily skin-Tonner /Astringent). Work your foundation onto the face with fingers(Foundation brush or sponge) in circular motions, working one area at a time, say from forehead down one side of face, then down the other side with quick motion. Blend downwards and outwards with a dry sea or makeup sponge. Concealer is best applied after foundation – apply small dots where needed and gently pat into the skin, then wipe with a sponge to remove excess. Concealer can be applied with a sponge or lip brush using the tips. If you feel a little more color is needed add to the spots, and blend again with sponge. Use Translucent Loose Powder to set the makeup using a large soft brush and dusting over the face quickly in a downward motion. If the skin is more mature just use powder in the T-Zone of forehead, nose and chin. Make-up must be well applied at all times and retouched when required. Regulations
Crew must wear-
Eye-liner/ Eye pencil
Foundation creates a good contour to the face and gives a base for color harmony, conceals blemishes and protects the skin from weather, wind and the environment. A concealer / foundation along with compact can be used to give a flawless porcelain look. Always use a shade closest to your skin tone to give a natural look. Foundation should be applied on the face and neck and blended well into the hairline. The smoothest way to apply a foundation is with fingertips – blending one section at a time. Then evenly blend around the jaw and hairline with a small dry sponge. Foundation should be water proof.
