... i have 2 assignments to do for a makeup course i did last year, and i am in need of some help, so where better for me to ask than here!!

Assignment 1 - writing 1500 words on anything to do with makeup. I have no idea what to write about! The most obvious is how makeup has evolved, but i wanted to do something a little different, if possible!

Assignment 2 - designing a makeup kit! Basically, everything from scratch. I have a fair idea of what to include, but thought i'd ask for opinions here - and the products have to be available in the UK please!

Thanx so much!

Maybe something about different types of makeup, expensive and cheap brands, and how each are in quality... maybe do an experimental type essay and write your findings... I dunno - I'm like Trisha ... I like to have a topic beforehand to at least know what direction to go in...

Or why there is a need for makeup in the first place. (don't get me wrong, I love Makeup!!

) As DUDE (

) said, is it for selfesteem, is it because of men, do women feel they need to look pretty all the time (why?). That would be an essay I would love to read. I think that being a REALLY good MUA also means knowing exactly what women feel/want, and why they want it. Knowing this would also make you a much better "salesperson". Not only would you make the customer feel much better about themselves, but they will trust you and your judgements/recommendations much more. Do you guys know what I mean?

Regarding your makeup kit, I guess the basics are obvious: foundations, shadows, blushes, tools etc etc. Just make sure you have that UD primer on there!!!

Kim's idea is cool! I would like to read about this. I think something like that teaches the different looks throughout the years that is helpful especially if you want to be an artist.

I like Kim's idea about how it has evolved. Plus, I have seen articles about this, so it would be fairly easy for you to get info on it.

Was really interesting and i did it because i know some companies want qualifications.

For the first one, some things I'm wondering about are:

-how to best use makeup to your benefit - like what colors complement what skin tones/eye colors/hair colors, how to use makeup to make your face seen fuller/less full, things like that.

-differences/similarities between drugstore/high end brands - are you really getting your money's worth?
