Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A__ foundation provides heavier coverage and is usually intended for dry skin types.

    • A.

      Water-based

    • B.

      Cream

    • C.

      Powder

    • D.

      Gel

    Correct Answer
    B. Cream
    Explanation
    Cream foundation provides heavier coverage and is usually intended for dry skin types because it has a thicker consistency and contains moisturizing ingredients. The creamy texture helps to hydrate the skin and provides a smooth, dewy finish. This type of foundation is ideal for those with dry skin as it helps to nourish and moisturize the skin while providing a more full-coverage look.

    Makeup should not be blended onto the skin with:

    • A.

      A spatula

    • B.

      A disposable makeup sponge

    • C.

      Cotton balls

    • D.

      A reusable brush 

    Correct Answer
    B. A disposable makeup sponge
    Explanation
    A disposable makeup sponge should not be used to blend makeup onto the skin because it can absorb too much product and result in a cakey or uneven application. Additionally, the porous texture of a sponge can harbor bacteria if not properly cleaned and sanitized after each use, which can lead to breakouts or skin irritation. It is better to use a reusable brush or other tools that provide more control and allow for a smoother and more even application of makeup.

    A__ color is lighter than the client's skin tone and may have any finish.

    • A.

      Base

    • B.

      Contour

    • C.

      Medium

    • D.

      Highlight

    Correct Answer
    D. Highlight
    Explanation
    A highlight color is lighter than the client's skin tone and may have any finish. It is used to add brightness and dimension to specific areas of the face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and inner corners of the eyes. Highlighting helps to create a youthful and glowing appearance by reflecting light and drawing attention to these areas. It can be applied in various forms, including powder, cream, or liquid, and can have a matte, shimmer, or metallic finish depending on the desired effect.

    To clean professional makeup brushes, a gentle shampoo or brush solvent is used, and the brush is placed into running water with the ferrule:

    • A.

      Pointing outward

    • B.

      Pointing upward

    • C.

      Pointing downward

    • D.

      Removed

    Correct Answer
    C. Pointing downward
    Explanation
    When cleaning professional makeup brushes, it is important to have the ferrule (the metal part that holds the bristles) pointing downward. This allows the water and cleaning solution to flow down and out of the brush, preventing any moisture from seeping into the ferrule and potentially loosening the bristles. Additionally, having the ferrule pointing downward ensures that the bristles are not bent or misshapen during the cleaning process.

  • 5. 

    To create a tertiary color you mix equal amounts of a secondary color and:

    • A.

      Its neighboring primary color on the color wheel

    • B.

      Its opposite primary color on the color wheel

    • C.

      Another secondary color

    • D.

      Its complementary color 

    Correct Answer
    A. Its neighboring primary color on the color wheel
    Explanation
    When creating a tertiary color, you mix equal amounts of a secondary color and its neighboring primary color on the color wheel. This is because the primary colors are red, blue, and yellow, and when you mix two primary colors together, you get a secondary color. The color wheel shows the relationship between these colors, and the neighboring primary color is the one next to the secondary color. Mixing equal amounts of these two colors creates a tertiary color, which is a combination of the two.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which eye color is considered neutral and can wear any makeup color?

    • A.

      Green

    • B.

      Blue

    • C.

      Brown

    • D.

      Hazel

    Correct Answer
    C. Brown
    Explanation
    Brown eye color is considered neutral because it is a combination of different pigments and can complement any makeup color. Brown eyes tend to have warm undertones, which means they can wear both cool and warm-toned makeup shades. This versatility allows individuals with brown eyes to experiment with a wide range of colors, from natural earthy tones to bold and vibrant shades. Additionally, brown eyes often serve as a great canvas for enhancing features and creating various makeup looks, making it a universally flattering eye color.

    The best type of lighting for color evaluation in the salon consultation area is:

    • A.

      Incandescent light

    • B.

      LED light

    • C.

      Fluorescent light

    • D.

      Natural light

    Correct Answer
    D. Natural light
    Explanation
    Natural light is the best type of lighting for color evaluation in the salon consultation area because it provides the most accurate representation of colors. Natural light is full spectrum, meaning it contains all colors of light in equal proportions. This allows clients and stylists to see colors as they truly are, without any distortion or color cast. Incandescent, LED, and fluorescent lights can all alter the appearance of colors, either by emitting too much of certain colors or by lacking certain colors altogether. Therefore, natural light is the ideal choice for accurate color evaluation in a salon consultation area.

  • 8. 

    A(n)__face has a greater length in proportion to its width than the square or round face.

    • A.

      Triangle-shaped

    • B.

      Diamond-shaped

    • C.

      Oblong-shaped

    • D.

      Pear-shaped

    Correct Answer
    C. Oblong-shaped
    Explanation
    An oblong-shaped face has a greater length in proportion to its width compared to a square or round face. The term "oblong" refers to a shape that is longer in one dimension than the other, and in the context of a face, it means that the face is longer from forehead to chin than it is wide across the cheeks. This shape is different from a triangle-shaped face, which typically has a wider forehead and narrows down towards the chin. A diamond-shaped face is characterized by wider cheekbones and a narrower forehead and chin. A pear-shaped face has a wider jawline and narrower forehead. Therefore, oblong-shaped is the correct answer.

    • D.

      Onto the sides of the nose and into the laugh lines of the face

    Correct Answer
    B. Down the center of the nose,ending at the tip
    Explanation
    To minimize a short, flat nose, a lighter foundation is applied down the center of the nose, ending at the tip. This technique helps create the illusion of a longer and more defined nose. By applying a lighter shade of foundation down the center of the nose, it draws attention to that area and creates the appearance of a more elongated nose shape.

      To the outer corner of the nose

    • D.

      To the middle of the nose

    Correct Answer
    A. Upward
    Explanation
    The highest part of an eyebrow arch should be upward from the outer circle of the iris because this creates a flattering and aesthetically pleasing shape to the eyebrows. It helps to lift the eyes and create the illusion of a more youthful and open appearance. By arching the eyebrows upward, it also helps to frame the face and enhance the natural shape of the eyes.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Orange

    • B.

      Yellow

    • C.

      Gold

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    D. Blue
    Explanation
    When red is blue-based, it is cool. This means that the undertone or base color of red is blue, which gives it a cool or cooler appearance. Colors can have different undertones or bases, such as warm (yellow, orange, gold) or cool (blue, green, purple), which can affect how they are perceived. In this case, the cool undertone of blue in red makes it appear cooler in temperature.

      Highlights

    • B.

      Shadows

    • C.

      Bright colors

    • D.

      Bright shades

    Correct Answer
    B. Shadows
    Explanation
    Shadows are used to minimize prominent features because they create a dark area that contrasts with the rest of the scene. By casting shadows on certain areas, the attention is drawn away from those features, making them less noticeable. Shadows can be strategically placed to create a sense of depth and reduce the prominence of specific elements in a composition.

    • C.

      To add a great deal of color to the client's face

    • D.

      To enhance the client's individuality 

    Correct Answer
    D. To enhance the client's individuality 
    Explanation
    An effective makeup application aims to enhance the client's individuality. This means that the goal is not to completely change or remake the client's image according to a standard, but rather to highlight and bring out their unique features and personality. The purpose is not to cover up wrinkles or blemishes, but to enhance the client's natural beauty. Adding a great deal of color to the client's face may not necessarily be the objective, as it depends on the desired look and the client's preferences.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    • A.

      Up from the top of the eyes

    • B.

      Inward towards the nose from the inner edge of the eyes

    • C.

      Up from the outer edge of the eyes

    • D.

      Down from the lower edge of the eyes

    Correct Answer
    C. Up from the outer edge of the eyes
    Explanation
    If the client has close-set eyes, applying shadow up from the outer edge of the eyes can help create the illusion of wider-set eyes. By applying shadow in this direction, it visually extends the width of the eyes, making them appear further apart. This technique can help balance the proportions of the face and enhance the overall eye makeup look.

      Widen the distance between the eyebrows

    • D.

      Trim the outer edges of the eyebrows

    Correct Answer
    A. Create a high arch on the ends of the eyebrows
    Explanation
    For clients with a square face shape, creating a high arch on the ends of the eyebrows is recommended. This helps to soften the angular features of the face and adds some curves. A high arch can create the illusion of an elongated face shape and balance out the squareness. It also adds lift to the eye area, making the face appear more balanced and proportionate.
