Requirements for lessons- Models It is beneficial and recommended that you bring a Model with you to each lesson indicated. As this is a short intensive course, by brining in a model you can share your model with the other students that bring models. That way you have many different faces to work on over the duration of the course. It is suggested to bring in a model in the morning of the Saturday and a model for the afternoon so your model is not required for a full day. This way you will be applying the makeup to two different skin types, tones and eye shape allowing you to better understand different clientele.
