Contouring and highlighting by Beautypartner

Sometimes I really feel like a noob when it comes to make-up. From time to time I had for instance difficulties with contouring and highlighting my face. I didn’t know the right techniques, so I just did something. Nowadays there’s a lot to read about on other blogs and tutorials on YouTube, but afterwards you have to do it by yourself of course and I honestly didn’t have the patience for it. Also I was curious about an educated person doing my make-up, so I let a professional cosmetician from Beautypartner putting make-up on me and I was so impressed!

Who is Beautypartner?
It all started 11 years ago as an employment agency in the cosmetic world. They send people like to de Bijenkorf, ICI Paris, MAC, Charlotte tilbury, Bobby Brown! The approach is not that they want to make promotion, but they want to mediate the right people for permanent positions, such as business assistant for Charlotte Tilbury. Besides the employment agency, Beautypartner started 7 years ago an academy with the goal to mediate the graduated people in beauty and cosmetic vacancies at diverse levels based on experiences, from school leavers up to manager. In a word, they are an agent and trainer with years of experience in the beauty and cosmetic branch.

The studies consists of: Maquillage Professionnel, Maquillage Prestige, hairstyling for u part wigs, skincare consultant, cosmetica consultant, fashionique and there are more other possibilities, such as private lessons and bridal styling. Depending on lessons, they’re all given 7 days a week in a classes of 10 students. The teachers make sure that the lesson for the students will be up to date with the trends, so the students can do the tasks with a base of this.

Recently they’ve also started an agency, whereas they mainly look for commissions for fashion shows like last time at the Dutch Sustainable fashion week, whereas they took care of the cosmetics with the team (including students). But this isn’t all. Last Christmas, the students also provided the staff from Tommy Hilfiger with cosmetology for a Christmas dinner. How awesome is that?!

Result of the make-up commissions
The result of the commissions can be found on the Facebook page and Instagram that are re-posted by the students. The students have to take the initiative to find a photographer by themselves. With this they of course learn to use social media. Besides that, the results are also to admire in the magazine Cosmetics.

Now it’s the moment! A professional make-up artist is doing my make-up WOOHOO! With a little mirror in my hand, I watched how he contoured and highlighted my face. There are several make-up products uesed as you can see on the photos, but it was all worth it, because the result was impressive! Now I know how I can create shadows and highlights, but am I already a pro? NAH, I need to keep practicing, haha! Would you like to learn this, then take a look on the website of Beautypartner:

    I like it 🙂 Many of the so called beautygurus just overdo it and end up looking like a barbie-doll. Your makeup looks natural but beautiful 🙂
