Ok wait can we just talk about how beautiful that model was even without makeup!!!

The makeup artist seemed like she reeeally didnt want to let her do this

Honestly I think many people are just used to seeing drama when there isn't any. It isn't rude to be direct or impolite to let someone know how to correctly handle ~your~ things. I think Lucie may have been making mistakes because makeup, modeling, photoshoots are really familiar to her but she's taking on a different role and was learning where her lane was. Overall, the video does a good job showing us how different the makeup industry is for those who work as makeup artists.

I didn’t realize it was legal to be a makeup artist and charge $$ when you don’t have the license? I know it is illegal with cosmetology and esthetics though

I love this video the makeup look at the end was cool... the girls were really funny and the makeup artist was realistic not rude like some people say and they had a good time... if I can I would love that she does my makeup because she knows what she is doing and she did teach Lucie some stuff like the mascara thing "Dont pump my mascara!" 😂 ... my opinion is that this is a great video and I LOVE IT... and can we talk for a second about the model she is so gorgeous 😍😍

Although I understand the mua is protective of her kit, she’s the one who agreed to this. She knows she’s teaching someone who hasn’t done this before. A bit of patience and a less condescending attitude, perhaps? Her whole vibe just put me off.

Sometimes the best way to teach someone is to be hard on them, it’s not like the MUA hated her, and she said very nice stuff at the end of the video.

The model is so beautiful bare faced, and she looks like Lana Del Rey immediately once when the liners are on.

Author — Simon


I thought I was the only one feeling the MUA wasnt that excited for teaching makeup in this video. But let me try to put myself in her shoes: She probably felt Lucie played ard too much on the set (didnt really take her guidance seriously). When Lucie accidentally scratched lip pencils on her lips, you can feel her frustration.
As for the mediocre result, tbh, lots of 'normal' editorial makeup looks like that. Unless there's some crazy theme, editorial MUA needs to stick to the direction given by the photographer/creative team.
