Hey and welcome to my very first video.
Today I am at my studio and decided that I’d pump out a few videos as I have a rare day off. I’ve been meaning to do this video for a few weeks now but kept putting it off.
Anyway, earlier this year I enrolled in The French Beauty Academy to do my Certificate 3 in Make-up. It’s a 6 month programme. It’s every Wedneday night 5pm-9pm. I work full time during the day so I was trying to find a makeup program that I could do at night and this is what I found. So we also have to come in on some Tuesday nights so it’s not just Wednesday nights. so on the Tuesday nights we come in to complete additional units like Spray Tanning which I already completed in June. It was just 2 Tuesdays and I also got a whole spray tanning kit which I’ll share with you in my next video. Next week I start the airbrushing module which runs for 3 weeks on Tuesday evenings. In October I do the lash extension unit which goes for 6 weeks also on the Tuesday nights. At the time of recording this video it’s August and my course started in July so I’m 7 weeks in. The first unit we are doing is Design and Apply Makeup which goes for 9 weeks so I just have 2 more classes to go. In this unit we have other students that are just enrolled in this unit and not completing the whole Certificate 3. So after this unit is complete the number of students will drop down. I think there are about 16 of us now- probably not even. I haven’t actually counted how many of us there are. So the class will drop down to under 10 students I’m pretty sure. So the classes are small which is good as we get lots of time with the teacher one on one if we need assistance. Sorry I wasn’t wanting this intro video to be so long. I was thinking I would just show you what the school had given me. But I know that when I had enrolled I was looking for this information and I couldn’t find anything related to my school and what was involved and what we actually got. so I promise I’m going to show you what’s inside my bag very soon. I’ll firstly just run through what classes come after this Design and Apply makeup unit. The next unit is camouflage makeup which goes for 3 weeks. Then photographic makeup which goes for 4 weeks and creative makeup which is the last unit and goes for 8 weeks and that’s it.
So here is what you’ve been waiting for. Here’s my kit and we received this on the very first day of class. enjoy.
I’m shooting this on the iPhone and I’m trying my hardest to hold it steady for you. So this is the bag that we go. It’s very cute. It’s got a little handle that you can put over your shoulder to make it easier to carry. I’ve just popped some hair ties with a red bow on it just so I can distinguish mine from everybody else’s in the class. It’s got a little zip. It’s got 1,2,3 little zip pockets. This here just opens up. We got an Alina Primer. If you see all these red marks on it- that’s just nail polish. I’ve put that on all of my things just so I don’t get mine mixed up with anyone else’s. We also got a tweezer and a pencil sharpener and we got 2 packets of lashes. One is a strip lash this is Evermate- I’ve never even actually heard of this brand. And then we’ve also got some individuals also by Evermate. And so also by Alina we got a makeup brush cleaner- it’s pretty big, it’s 250ml. So I don’t actually take this to class I actually got a smaller spray bottle and I transferred it into this. I think this is 75ml so this just stays at home or stays at my studio for when I need to refill. This is just what I take to school. And then we also got a towel, so we just put that down on our workstation- I just got that marker on there. Yes we just put that down on our work station to keep it sanitized or hygienic. And then we got 3 palettes. This one here is eyeshadow and then I got a lip palette and a blush palette and I’m pretty sure the teacher said we’re going to get another palette at the end of the first unit and it will be a foundation and concealer palette and then I’ve also got a brush belt with some brushes. Ok I will just put this down so I can open up the palettes. This is the lip palette- good selection of colours there. I just used my label maker to mark what the palettes are and then also I just made up colours so I can identify what the different colours are. And this one here’s the blushes. And this one here’s the eyeshadow. And now I just realised that my eyeshadow looks a bit messy. It was clean but I think it got messy from the car- I don’t know from sitting in this box and being shuffled around. Anyway I’ll make sure to clean it after this video so its ready for my next client- well my next class which will be on Wednesday and today is Saturday. And then just the brush belt. This is the brush belt that we got-it’s pretty good. I don’t actually use this one but I might start using it. We also got 2 clips to clip the clients hair back and these are the brushes we got. So in the first class we got these and we used them and they instantly were shedding. So I’m pretty sure I spent more time trying to get the brush hairs off the client than actually applying the makeup. When I took it home that night I gave it a super duper wash trying to get off the lose hairs. Now that I’ve done that it’s working pretty well I’ve not had any issues since.
That’s pretty much it for now. Cool Thanks for watching.
Ok I’m back- I just realised that I also got 2 tubes of eyelash adhesive. so yeah that was it.
Thank you for sticking around and watching all the way through. I have some more videos to record today so hopefully I’ll see you again soon. If you liked what you watched please subscribe to my channel so I know that I’m on the right track and you’d like me to continue making videos. Please leave any comments below and I’ll make sure to reply. Also let me know what you think and what other videos you would like me to do. I’m a bit camera shy so you probably won’t see me for a few videos we’ll see. The next video I’m going to record today is my spray tanning kit and then I also paid to do an additional unit which is hair styling for beginners so I’ll do a video on what I received for that. Then yeah you can call me crazy but I also enrolled to do my Diploma of Cinemagraphic makeup at The Australian Academy of Cinemagraphic makeup. That one is a one year part time one day a week program and I had my first class on Thursday just a couple of days ago. So I’ll show you what I received so far for that unit. If the light doesn’t disappear I’d also like to show you what I have purchased so far for my professional freelancing kit. Well I’m pretty sure that’s it for now and I hope you to see you again in my next videos.
