    Not at all. Although I’m good at doing makeup on myself, I can never make it look as good on someone else.

  2. Barbie

    Nope, no way. I am so new to this makeup thing that I would hardly call myself an artist.

    its up to how i feel and how much time i got. there are days when i can make really artistic make up and days when no matter what i do and how much i try everything looks messed up… i was more into make up few years ago when it was just kind of my hobby so then i would call myself an artist but then i stopped for some time so now im kinda out of practice but tryin hard to be good in it again :)

    I’m not a make up artist, however it doesn’t stop me from loving me some make up!
    I haven’t had practice at putting it on other people, but luckily I’m good at putting it on myself.

    When it comes to applying liquid/gel eyeliner and shadow, yes – I consider myself to be an artist. But I have a long way to go with regard to contouring and concealing though…

    I feel as though I have the inner gift of artistry…but all thumbs when it comes to application:( No matter how hard I try to perfect my make-up when I step back to admire my finished product it never ever looks like the picture that I was trying to copy, or the tut I was following. Not sure if its lack of experinece or understanding but the art I seek to create never comes out artful.

  7. kind of……i can do it. I haven’t had formal training i just always liked doing it just forgot about it for some years. Now my obsession is back in full force and my friends are begging me to charge them….hm.

    I feel kinda artsy when I’m painting my face with a paintbrush. Does that count? But no way do I feel like a makeup artist!

    LoL no way!!! I would love to just be able to do make up like you or any other makeup artists but even with your tutorials- which are fantastic by the way- I CAN’T!!! Huff…

    haha not at all…i usually get around 4-6 hours of sleep a night and i wear makeup for the sole purpose of not looking dead… so the extent of my abilities ends at the basic eyeliner/blush application.

    Well i dont consider MYSELF an artist when it comes to makeup but i do consider makeup an art for sure.. it takes alot of talent and a very trained hand to do some of the looks that famouse makeup artist do. So as a whole i consider makeup an art for sure.
