My photo

I credit having two older sisters with my falling in love with EVERYTHING BEAUTY. Watching two fashionistas while growing up turned out to be a seduction of my interests. I was quite the tomboy until 8th grade  then it began. As a teen, I began to devour every beauty editorial in all of the top fashion magazines: Vogue©, Elle©, Essence©, Cosmopolitan©, Harpers Bazaar© and Seventeen. I could not get enough. I was ever-willing to spend my last $10 on an eyebrow pencil and two fashion rags. I would spend hours at the nearest store to browse the make-up lines and become familiar with every tool there was. I learned to sew at a very young age (Mommy made sure), so this was the time I started designing and sewing my own outfits to wear to school. So of course I had to have nails and eye shadow to match. If my blouse had black and white stripes or a checkered pattern, then so did my nails and eyes. Eventually becoming a NAIL TECHNICIAN & MAKE-UP ARTIST was a natural progression.

★ GRASP THE MASTERY...the blog post.

GRASP THE MASTERY IS A MAKEUP ARTIST CENTERED MASTER CLASS IN  THE FORM OF TWEETS.  
To actually "grasp the mastery" beyond 140 characters (or less), take each tweet & create a 10 bullet point (or more) summary of how you can apply the crux of it to your technique. Then expound on & study your 10 points for deeper exploration;  keep in mind that your bullet points are to serve as a road map to more comprehensive study. Implement as many research materials as possible - including classes, makeup workshops, seminars, makeup books, books on fine art, articles related to the cosmetics industry, images of the industry from a historical perspective & study of related industries. (photography, lighting, costuming, story boarding, cosmetics chemistry...

Example:
#GraspTheMastery #19: The beauty of skin is in its texture & hue. Retain its true essence w/ makeup.

1) Skin types, textures, condition, care treatment.
2) Skin preparation based on skin type.
3) Skin preparation based on skin texture, conditions.
4) Skin texture - how to mimic skin health w/ makeup.
5) Skin texture - how to enhance undertones with color products.
6) Makeup elements - Create the look of healthier skin w/ color theory.
7) Makeup elements - Use color products for correcting severe blemishes, scars & discoloration
8) Makeup elements - Study of lighting elements for best skin in controlled environments (Photography, Film)
9) Cosmetics chemistry technology & innovations for healthy skin.
10) Esthetics & Dermatology - Where makeup fits into the equation.


You get the idea! Begin the journey, if you dare!
  • #GraspTheMastery: Take what you already know. Study timeless, iconic images. Do a step by step breakdown of possible technique.
    #GraspTheMastery: The breakdown? Products. Tools. Aspects of #colortheory. Facial anatomy. Attention to detail.
    #GraspTheMastery: Pinpoint what's different about your work & work you greatly admire. Look for what you're missing. 
    #GraspTheMastery: Figure out if your perception is in line w/ an established aesthetic or comfort zone of your skill.

    #GraspTheMastery: Don't fear knowing & being judged on the difference between poor, mediocre, fair, good & excellent. 
    #GraspTheMastery: With expertise, go to your weak side first. Then match it using the strengths of your strong side. 
    #GraspTheMastery: Understand that the word ART in our title is something that bears responsibility to GLOBAL IDEALS. 
    #GraspTheMastery: If access to information has made you lazy - WAKE UP & STOP TAKING IT FOR GRANTED. #READ #Research 
    #GraspTheMastery: Part 11 - We finger paint b4 we learn math, writing & science.Study artistry math, writing & science.

    #GraspTheMastery: Part 13 - Mistakes-what we shd use 2 figure out who we are within the craft. Face them.Analyze them.
    #GraspTheMastery: Part 14 - Bring innovation into your offerings. Observe your inspirations & add ur own contribution.
    #GraspTheMastery: Part 15 - The masters are masters b/c their expertise has a signature. What's ur artistry signature?
    #GraspTheMastery #16: Embrace the tedious. Times will come when inspiration from those moments surfaces as expertise.
    #GraspTheMastery #17: TALENT is natural.SKILL is developed.BOTH can be fully realized w/ EDUCATION & HARD WORK.
    #GraspTheMastery, #18 - #Artistry rooted in the basics has been/is the most successful formula to follow.
    #GraspTheMastery #19: The beauty of skin is in its texture & hue. Retain its true essence w/ makeup.

DEBATE IS HEALTHY!!! Hateful, Negative Attitudes Are Not!!!



Original Poster: To you male MUA'S, what made you want to do makeup? I'm curious.....

    • Jennifer James: Hey all, I would be interested to see if males are motivated differently than females or are the variances based more on individual life stories vs gender. Weigh in guys!
       
      Original Poster: Thank you Jennifer J. I can't wait to see either

    • Commenter #1: I am also curious...because some of them it seem to come so natural to them & they can paint circles around some female artist


      Commenter #2: Ths question deserves a *bump*!

    • Original Poster: bump....

      Commenter #3:
      where are the men???? why no response


    • Commenter #4: sigh no one wants to answer? Im curious to know too because I agree with Commenter #1

      Original Poster: .‎......................



    • Jennifer James: Hmm, is it that they're better or is it that as a culture, we are socialized to have more of a fascination with the Male Stylist???

      Plus, the factor of that underlying crush women have on their Male Stylists even though the women really know it may not/won't ever go anywhere beyond the client/stylist relationship.

      Does time enduring global sexism that exists in every world culture have anything to do with the successes of Male Master Artists & Craftsmen in many different fields?

      I love the psychology behind this whole discussion.

      Commenter #4: Its just my opinion before I join this forum I noticed more male artist than female. I knew it was female artist before just didnt know it was as many.


    • Original Poster: Psychology is my thing, I love it!

      Commenter #5: oooow weee!! we definitely have a fascination and an endearing trust towards male artists. Simply put: A woman will sit in a chair and let a male say "Chile, you look a mess! let me fix you". Now IF a woman says that... well if a verbal altercation doesn't ensue, you can be sure that the woman will NOT return for services. I have seen women flirting and crushing on male artists to sickening extremes lol ready to give up house and home to pay for the service. Yes, it's that deep. Especially when the same client type will nickel and dime a woman for a stellar services worth just as much as the male counterpart.

    • Commenter #1: I always wondered if their drive to be the best in their art form was because they were men...meaning this is a "women" driven field and if they are going to do it they have to be better than the women doing it...not saying that all men artist are the bomb...but i have met some mind blowing talented artist...MUA/Hair/Styling *if.any.of.that.made.sense* LOL

    • Original Poster:  Your statement made me think of how ''extra'' MOST gay men tend to be... since they aren't naturally women, they feel the need to prove themselves more. Sooo, I do believe to an extent, male mua's do try to go that extra mile to be better than some women mua's.

      Commenter #6: I recently had this discussion with another male MUA. This belief by women that male MUA/Hairstylist/Stylists are better than women and more preferred. I believe there is a correlation between this and the mother/son relationship. A mother loves her children, but has that special bond with her baby boy(mama's boy). Just like 'daddy's little girl'. The whole opposite attracts idea applies in this area as well. The affirmation by a man given to a woman is powerful. Some women may be lonely, rejected, etc. Attention from a male is what she is seeking, no matter the circumstance. So while a female Artist may be just as qualified or even better, a male will be chosen because of these things. This is my theory, what do you all think?



    • Jennifer James: ‎   Original Poster, there is another mis-conception that you just confirmed the existence of...A lot of gay men want to be women - F A L S E!

    • Jennifer James: Hi Commenter #6, I believe those things probably do play into it as well.

    • Commenter #1: oooh Original Poster, that wasnt the direction I was going...LOL...because some are not gay...they just want to take advantage of this billion dollar industry (all.things.women) but okaaay :-)


    • Original Poster: Jennifer James..............A lot that I know do have feminine ways, and try to be like women. That's why I made sure to say MOST.


    • Original Poster: and Commenter #1... I comprehended what you were saying, I was just stating my own opinion.


    • Original Poster: Another thing Jennifer James...... the fact is, most male mua's are gay that I know of, because they are open about it. It's not just an assumption, so please don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to turn this simple question I posted, into a political debate.


      Commenter #1: ‎:-) I just know sometime I type what I think Im saying but when some read it they see something different then what I meant...again *if.that.made.sense* LOL

      Original Poster: i feel you Commenter #1 :-)


    • Jennifer James:
      ‎Original Poster,  you said:
      "Your statement made me think of how ''extra'' MOST gay men tend to be... since they aren't naturally women, they feel the need to prove themselves more. Sooo, I do believe to an extent, male mua's do try to go that extra mile to be better than some women mua's."

      That sounds as if you are equating being gay with wanting to "be a woman" or in the least you seem to insinuate the 'most' do?

      If that's not what you meant then maybe you could reword it to express your actual thought.


    • Original Poster: it's my opinion, i don't need to reword anything....

      Original Poster: I guess this post won't go into the direction that i intended for it to go, so i'll just remove it!


Commentary:

We can't go through life & erase times & situations that don't go as we suspect or wish.

We learn from them, we build stronger character in ourselves & sometimes we give someone else something to think about & learn from.

I say it often, debate is healthy.

"Grasp The Mastery - Makeup Artistry's Connection to the Fine Arts"

"Grasp The Mastery - Makeup Artistry's Connection to the Fine Arts" is a Skype in the Classroom Project by Jennifer James Beauty. Through this project, I seek to show interested students all over the world the connection between the beauty, makeup, cosmetics & photography industries to the world of Fine Art.

_Consumers
_In the fashion industry
_Film Industry
_Television
_Stage
_Body Painting
_Amusement
_Prosthetic Makeup

"Grasp The Mastery" will collaborate with Educators of the Fine Arts to expose more students to career possibilities in the Visual Arts realm. We want to excite students while we stress the importance of their development as artistic thinkers.

The following are various articles which are exemplary of the philosophy of Jennifer James Beauty & will give you a clear idea of the depth of the teaching style.

*About Skype in the classroom...

Skype in the classroom is a free global community that invites teachers to collaborate on classroom projects where they might use Skype, and share skills and inspiration around specific teaching needs.

Teachers all over the world are using Skype to make learning more exciting and memorable. It's easy to see why: Skype offers an immediate way to help students discover new cultures, languages and ideas, all without leaving the classroom.
One of the most inspiring examples we’ve come across is teacher Kara Cornejo’s global weather project, (click link to view video on the Skype in the Classroom website) which started here on Skype in the classroom.

I am really looking forward to expanding my global community on behalf of the Makeup Artist, Beauty Enthusiasts, Fine Artists, Creatives & everyone who expresses the facets of their personality through the arts & humanities.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVATION?

MUAs. QUESTION! When we critique each other as we judge each other's work, specifically in the scrutinizing of celebrities - are we also:

1) Judging our own ability or lack thereof to have done a better or even comparable job?

2) Using the discussion as a learning opportunity to better our technique for similar circumstances?

3) Really pointing something out in an effort to discover the method behind it, with little cattiness intended?

4) Just having fun ripping another MUA (with better clients than us) or a Celebrity because we can?

5) Being straight-up jealous haters who have nothing better to do & not enough self esteem?

*THIS IS NOT A QUIZ, JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT (myself included). LIFE IS ABOUT LEARNING & AS MUAS, WE MUST LEARN OUR INDUSTRY, TECHNIQUES, ARTISTRY, MARKETING, NETWORKING - & OURSELVES WITH HONEST EVALUATION OF WHAT TRULY DRIVES US & WHAT WE DO.
