When we rang in 2017, our family goal was to travel to all 50 states while putting aside everything else. This included taking all personal care funds (as well as other funds) and converting them into travel funds. For me, this meant professional hair appointments, manicures, pedicures, and full-face makeup applications no longer existed. There was no time. There was no money.
During the first six months of this year, all went as planned and we were able to reach 16 states in between work and school. Pretty amazing, right! But, boy, did my appearance suffer!
My wardrobe had turned into whatever was left hanging around that could fit and could easily be pulled on with no effort, my nails were stubby, eyebrows un-kept, and hair brittle.
This was definitely not the person I was used too, especially with having a background in the fashion and beauty industry (many years ago) including three semesters at Illinois State University in Apparel Merchandising and Design, my diploma in Fashion Merchandising, and my certificate in Makeup Artistry from JLS Makeup School in Hollywood.
Things had to change.
So, I enrolled in Multimedia Makeup Academy’s Online Color Theory Course.
My Color Theory Course Goal
My goal for enrolling in the Color Theory Course was to re-learn what colors worked for my skin tone so that I could purchase a new wardrobe fitting for the person that I have become, as well as update my train case to include updated colors.
But, being exhausted from travel adventures, there was no way I was traveling anywhere to take a class, so taking the course online was perfect for me.
When I was ready, I simply went to My Account and logged in to my course under Files & Training. Each course that a student is signed up for can be found under Files & Training.
When I was ready to begin, I simply Launched the course and the instruction began. I did not complete the entire course in one setting, instead I broke it up into what was convenient for me. However, each time I stopped, I was able to log back in and pick up where I left off. A few times, though, I restarted from the beginning to make sure I understood everything – which is perfectly fine.
Since, I have had training in color theory before, I did not feel the need to spend a considerable amount of time in the course. However, if it were my first time, I would have.
In terms of recommendations, I would strongly suggest taking notes because the information is invaluable if one plans to pursue a career in the beauty industry.
Finally, there are five other single lessons offered which include Brows, Eyes, Face, Lips, and Tools & Sanitation.
