  • what kind of lighting should i use for photoshoot?

    I'm an aspiring makeup artist and I am looking for some pictures for my portfolio. My sis needs pictures for her portfolio so we are going to be getting together to do a photo shoot. I'm obviously going to be taking the pictures with just a plain ol' digital camera nothing special. What do I need as in equipment wise I guess? What about lighting? We are doing both natural head shots and glamor style. I think the natural shots will be outdoors and the glamor ones indoor. Thank!s!!

  • what do you need to know for a mac interview/demo?

    Do you need to know all the products or some?

    I haven't used fluidline or any of the primers so if I were to get to the demo part would I need to know it?

    What happens during the demo?

    Do you need to replicate a look like and Eva Longoria look or something? Or do you just make a face up and explain what your using?

    Also is there a chance of me getting the job if I've never had retail experience? Are the interviews conducted in groups or one-on-one?

    Thanks for all the help!

  • Can someone explain to me how student loans work?

    I don't know anything about loans and I need some help. I want to go to make-up designory school in New York. It cost about $15,000. I'm most likely living on my own. Can I get money to help with housing cost and with school? The loan that the school has is Sallie Mae. CAn anyone give me some info on it? Also, I have no credit so can I still get a loan? How much do they give you adn how much do you have to pay each month? On the website it says something about repayment loans up to 15 years, does this mean you have to pay the loan off within 15 years? What happens if you don't? What happens if you don't have a credit worthy cosigner? Do they have to be living with you?

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

  • Can anyone tell me about IMTA?

    I got a letter about auditioning to IMTA in LA. I've never had any modeling experience except for one pageant and I never did any kind of schooling like Barbizon or John Robert Powers even though Barbizon really wanted me to. I didn't think it was worth the money but I was refered by them. I have tons of questions.

    How much is it?

    What are my chances of winning or getting an agent?

    What do you win?

    How long is it?

    What do you do?

    How is the auditioning process?

    People like Eva Longoria and Ashton Kutcher have been discovered there. Like I said before I've never done any kind of modeling. I think I'm kind of short.

    So what are my acutal chances?

    Do I need a portfolio, etc.?

    Please don't waste your time and mine if you don't have an answer.

  • What makeup colors should I use?

    I'm wearing a yellow dress with silver accessories for prom and a pageant. What color eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, etc. Should I wear? I prefer MAC but you can just name colors. I have black hair and dark eyes. My eyes are big and round and I like them too stand out but not too much. I'm kind of dark skinned with golden beige undertones. I don't want anything too dramatic though.

  • Starting out on my own….?

    I am already thinking about how I am going to live on my own. I am graduating high school June of 2008 and I will be living on my own for a while or until I decide if I want a roommate. I need to know everything about living on my own including bills, schooling, jobs, etc., keeping in mind I want to move to New York around the Soho area

    I need a VERY detailed list about bills like grocery, rentals insurance, car insurance, health insurance, electricity, water, etc. I also need a VERY detailed list of furniture and appliances.

    I want to be a makeup artist and I know some places I can apply for a job but I do not know how I should write resume. I have never had a job and I want to work at a MAC store or counter. I will have some experience in makeup artistry as soon as I start school.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Any websites for starting out will be great as well. You can also email me if you have even more stuff to say.

    Thanks a bunch!

  • Do you believe pageants are bad? Why?

    First off DON'T BE RUDE

    Why do people beleive pageants are bad. There are different kinds of pageants like glitz and natrual. Those who haven't been in pageants don't know that they are actually fun. You only say all these things about pageants because your stereotyping. How do you know your child doesn't like something if you don't try it. What if your child is a soccer star or a football star or something like that. How did they become that way? Well, you put them in it in the first place. Pageants are just another activity the child can do in there spare time. Look at the parents that put there child into dance or gymnatics and sooner or later the child is in there everyday for five hours. Does that make them bad parents? Be nice please. I'm not trying to be rude I just want to here your opinions.
