Makeup Myth vs. Makeup Fact

Urban legends, Internet rumor gone crazy or just simple miscommunication...all things that can cause us to believe the untrue to be true. Makeup myths are no exception and I have decided to shed some light and debunk some theories.
The first myth is one of my biggest pet peeves!
MYTH: The brand of makeup you have in your kit is what makes a good makeup artist or makeup application.
Ohhh how I loathe this! Now, don't get me wrong, certain brands have the reputation they have because they have earned it by the superior quality of their product...BUT, the product itself does not make the makeup artist or the makeup application. We have almost created a type of makeup prejudice if you will. So often, people will look for a makeup artist based solely on the brand of makeup in their kit. I can give you a $20 eyeshadow and a $5 eyeshadow, but if you don't know how to use it, the $20 eyeshadow isn't going to make it better because it costs more or is a better known brand.
Every brand of makeup, whether high end or not, has it's excellent products and not so excellent products, it's simply a matter of knowing what is what and how to use it.
MYTH: A good makeup artist must have formal training.
Absolutely not! I am a self taught artist. I went to school for hair not makeup and there are numerous other amazing makeup artists out there that are self taught. Do I believe in continuing your makeup education and learning as much about makeup and makeup products as possible, most definitely. However, a certificate does not make one artist better than another. May I also say, there is nothing wrong with a makeup artist that acquired their abilities through formal training, after all, I do teach classes. We all have the skills and the talents we have  either naturally or learned and one is not better than the other.
Stay tuned for more and feel free to add your own makeup myths.
Beauty and blessings!
