Salon Boutique Academy met with makeup artist and educator Brianna Meshack-Wilks to discuss current trends and tips to guard against makeup mistakes.

To stay up-to-date on current trends, Salon Boutique Academy met with makeup artist and educator Brianna Meshack-Wilks in early May. Meshack-Wilks explained the specifics of the popular current look, which involves bold lips, graphic eyeliner and dewy, luminous skin. Meshack-Wilks also said to anticipate cranberry/mulberry lips with frosty eyes to be a popular look by the fall.

Salon Boutique Academy members asked Meshack-Wilks for some tips to guard against makeup mistakes. She explained that there are three concepts that will help to avoid these common errors: receive professional assistance in selecting the proper foundation, always wear sunscreen and recognize that more is not always more.

When it comes to preventing frightening make-up meltdowns during hot spring and summer Texas days, Meshack-Wilks suggests keeping blotting film and setting powder in purses, as well as a brush to apply.

For women on the go, Meshack-Wilks recommends three tools to give them a quick boost in the shortest amount of time – lip gloss, concealer and mascara.

Meshack-Wilks’ advice to budding makeup artists is to study the masters of the industry, find strong mentors, get educated on the current trends and take classes to enhance technical skills.

Meshack-Wilks is the PACE Makeup Program Educator at Salon Boutique Academy in Addison, Texas. This program provides comprehensive training on the fundamentals of makeup artistry techniques using the key concepts of professionalism, artistry, creativity and education.
