    What are the four personal sanitation issues that makeup artists must remember?

    • A.

      Hair out of the face, no colored nail polish, no perfume, and fresh breath.

    • B.

      Hair out of the face, no long nails, no gum or mints, and always wear gloves.

    • C.

      No perfume, no false eyelashes, cleaned and polished makeup case, and must wear gloves.

    Correct Answer
    A. Hair out of the face, no colored nail polish, no perfume, and fresh breath.
    Explanation
    Makeup artists need to ensure that their hair is kept out of their face to avoid any contamination of the products they are using. They should also avoid wearing colored nail polish as it can chip off and contaminate the makeup. Perfume should be avoided as it can interfere with the client's scent preferences.

    When sanitizing your tools, all palettes and palette knives must sanitize with

    • A.

      Soap and water

    • B.

      Palette cleanser

    • C.

      99% alcohol

    Correct Answer
    C. 99% alcohol
    Explanation
    When sanitizing tools, it is important to use a substance that effectively kills bacteria and other pathogens. Soap and water may clean the tools, but they may not completely sanitize them. Palette cleanser is specifically designed to clean paint palettes, but it may not be effective in sanitizing tools. On the other hand, 99% alcohol is a strong disinfectant that can effectively kill bacteria and viruses, making it the best option for sanitizing palettes and palette knives.

      Never work from the original container.

    Correct Answer
    B. Never work from the original container.
    Explanation
    Working from the original container can lead to contamination or damage to the product. Transferring the product to a separate container ensures that it is used properly and safely. Additionally, using a separate container allows for proper labeling and identification of the product, reducing the risk of confusion or misuse.

This is crucial for ensuring the safety of individuals who handle or come into contact with the cleaning agents. Additionally, labeling also helps in organizing and categorizing the cleaning agents, making it easier to locate and use them when needed.

    When buying essential makeup for your kit, which product is NOT necessary?

    • A.

      Shimmer powder or cream

    • B.

      A concealer palette

    • C.

      Anti-wrinkle skin cream

    • D.

      Non-shimmer chapstick

    Correct Answer
    C. Anti-wrinkle skin cream
    Explanation
    Anti-wrinkle skin cream is not necessary when buying essential makeup for your kit because it is not a makeup product. It is a skincare product specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While skincare is important, it is not typically considered an essential makeup item. The other options listed, such as shimmer powder or cream, a concealer palette, and non-shimmer chapstick, are all commonly used makeup products that can enhance one's appearance.

    Under what conditions should oil-based makeup be used instead of water-based makeup?

    • A.

      If someone has extremely dry skin.

    • B.

      When applying makeup for someone appearing on TV or Film.

    • C.

      In humid climates.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    Oil-based makeup should be used instead of water-based makeup under the following conditions: someone has extremely dry skin, when applying makeup for someone appearing on TV or Film, and in humid climates. Oil-based makeup provides more hydration and moisture for dry skin, while also giving a longer-lasting and more flawless finish for high-definition cameras used in TV and film. In humid climates, oil-based makeup is less likely to melt or slide off the face compared to water-based makeup. Therefore, all of the given conditions require the use of oil-based makeup.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following are complementary colors?

    • A.

      Yellow and Blue

    • B.

      Orange and Purple

    • C.

      Red and Green

    Correct Answer
    C. Red and Green
    Explanation
    Complementary colors are pairs of colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. When these colors are placed next to each other, they create a strong contrast and enhance each other's intensity. In this case, red and green are complementary colors because they are opposite each other on the color wheel.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What are the primary colors?

    • A.

      Purple, Blue, and Yellow

    • B.

      Green, Red, and Blue

    • C.

      Blue, Yellow, and Red

    Correct Answer
    C. Blue, Yellow, and Red
    Explanation
    The primary colors are the colors that cannot be created by mixing other colors together. They are considered the building blocks for all other colors. In the subtractive color system used in painting and printing, the primary colors are blue, yellow, and red. By mixing these colors in different combinations, all other colors can be created.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What happens when two complementary colors are mixed together?

    • A.

      They produce black.

    • B.

      They produce a grey or brown.

    • C.

      They produce white.

    Correct Answer
    B. They produce a grey or brown.
    Explanation
    When two complementary colors are mixed together, they produce a grey or brown color. Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, such as red and green or blue and orange. When these colors are mixed, they create a neutral or desaturated color, resulting in a shade of grey or brown. This is because the complementary colors cancel out each other's intensity, creating a more subdued and muted color.

     When base matching, it is important to pay attention to what?

    • A.

      The underlying color of the skin.

    • B.

      The makeup that he/she already has on.

    • C.

      The color or his/her eyes.

    Correct Answer
    A. The underlying color of the skin.
    Explanation
    When base matching, it is important to pay attention to the underlying color of the skin because the base or foundation should match the skin tone to create a natural and seamless look. The underlying color of the skin determines whether the person has warm, cool, or neutral undertones, which helps in selecting the right shade of foundation. Matching the base to the skin color ensures that it blends well and enhances the overall complexion.

    • C.

      Choose a primary color.

    Correct Answer
    B. Choose the rest of the makeup (lipstick, eye shadow).
    Explanation
    Understanding which colors complement each other on the color wheel will help in choosing the rest of the makeup (lipstick, eye shadow). Complementary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel and create a visually pleasing effect when used together. By knowing which colors complement each other, one can select the right combination of lipstick and eye shadow colors that will enhance their overall look.

      Match the best foundation color.

    • B.

      Ask your client what look she/he wants.

    • C.

      Ask them a list of questions including if they have allergies.

    Correct Answer
    C. Ask them a list of questions including if they have allergies.
    Explanation
    The first thing you should do on a gig is to ask the client a list of questions, including if they have any allergies. This is important because it helps you understand the client's preferences, any specific requirements they may have, and ensures that you can provide a safe and suitable service for them. By asking about allergies, you can avoid using products that may cause any adverse reactions and ensure a comfortable experience for the client.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What are the three main types of bases?

    • A.

      Cream, solid, liquid

    • B.

      Cream, solid, dual finish

    • C.

      Cream, liquid, dual finish

    Correct Answer
    C. Cream, liquid, dual finish
    Explanation
    The three main types of bases are cream, liquid, and dual finish. Cream bases are typically thicker and provide more coverage, making them suitable for dry or mature skin. Liquid bases have a lighter consistency and are easier to blend, making them suitable for normal to combination skin. Dual finish bases offer the versatility of being used both wet and dry, allowing for customizable coverage and finish.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is a dual finish?

    • A.

      A combination of powder and cream

    • B.

      A combination of cream and liquid

    • C.

      A mousse

    Correct Answer
    A. A combination of powder and cream
    Explanation
    A dual finish refers to a combination of powder and cream products. This means that the product has both a powder formula and a cream formula, allowing for versatility in application and finish. The powder component provides a matte or satin finish, while the cream component adds a touch of moisture and a dewy glow to the skin. This combination of textures and finishes gives the user the option to customize their desired look and achieve different effects on the skin.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    To get a sheerer look, you can?

    • A.

      Break down your product with water.

    • B.

      Break down your product with a moisturizer.

    • C.

      Break down your product with oil.

    Correct Answer
    B. Break down your product with a moisturizer.
    Explanation
    To get a sheerer look, breaking down the product with a moisturizer is suggested. This is because adding a moisturizer to the product can help to dilute its intensity and provide a more sheer and natural finish. Mixing the product with water may alter its consistency and texture, but it may not necessarily achieve the desired sheer look. Breaking down the product with oil can make it appear more dewy or glowy, but it may not necessarily result in a sheer finish.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The cream is usually used for maximum coverage for areas like

    • A.

      Film and weddings

    • B.

      Runways and fashion shoots

    • C.

      Film, TV, and photography

    Correct Answer
    C. Film, TV, and photography
    Explanation
    The cream is usually used for maximum coverage in industries such as film, TV, and photography. These industries often require heavy makeup application to ensure that the actors or models look flawless on camera. The cream provides excellent coverage and can effectively hide imperfections, making it ideal for use in these fields. Additionally, the cream may also be used in other settings such as film, weddings, runways, and fashion shoots, where a similar level of coverage is desired.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Where is the best place to base match?

    • A.

      The forehead

    • B.

      The cheeks

    • C.

      The neck

    • D.

      The chin

    Correct Answer
    C. The neck
    Explanation
    The neck is the best place to base match because it is an area of the body that is less likely to be exposed to sunlight or other external factors that could affect the color of the skin. Additionally, the skin on the neck is typically more similar in color and texture to the skin on the face, making it a more accurate location for matching foundation or other makeup products.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    When choosing a concealer which one of these is NOT correct?

    • A.

      Yellow camouflages violet

    • B.

      Green camouflages red

    • C.

      Orange camouflages blue

    • D.

      Blue camouflages yellow

    Correct Answer
    D. Blue camouflages yellow
    Explanation
    Blue does not camouflage yellow. In color theory, blue is opposite to orange on the color wheel, so it is used to neutralize or cancel out orange tones. Yellow, on the other hand, is opposite to purple or violet, so it is used to counteract those shades. Therefore, the statement that blue camouflages yellow is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    If you are trying to cover up a pimple, you should choose

    • A.

      A concealer with green in it

    • B.

      A separate darker base for that area

    • C.

      A liquid concealer

    Correct Answer
    A. A concealer with green in it
    Explanation
    A concealer with green in it is the correct answer because green color helps to neutralize redness. Pimples often appear red, so using a green concealer can help to counteract the redness and make the pimple less noticeable. The green color corrects the redness by canceling it out, creating a more even skin tone.

    What does “setting your work” mean?

    • A.

      Taking a break

    • B.

      Using a camera to take a picture for your portfolio

    • C.

      Using powder to keep the base and concealer in place

    Correct Answer
    C. Using powder to keep the base and concealer in place
    Explanation
    "Setting your work" refers to the act of applying powder to the face after applying foundation and concealer. This helps to set the base makeup and concealer in place, preventing them from smudging or transferring throughout the day. The powder absorbs excess oil and helps to mattify the skin, giving a smooth and flawless finish to the makeup. It is an essential step in makeup application, especially for those with oily skin or for long-lasting makeup looks.

    • C.

      Angled blush brush and concealer brush

    • D.

      Angled blush brush and large fan brush

    Correct Answer
    D. Angled blush brush and large fan brush
    Explanation
    The angled blush brush and large fan brush are the best brushes for shading and highlighting. The angled blush brush is designed to fit the contours of the face, making it ideal for shading and creating dimension. The large fan brush is perfect for highlighting as it allows for a light and diffused application of product. Together, these brushes provide the necessary tools for achieving a beautifully blended and sculpted look.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    When shadowing, which parts of the face should you shade?

    • A.

      The chin, cheekbones, ears, and jawline

    • B.

      The hairline, jawline, nose and cheekbones

    • C.

      The hairline, jawline, under the chin and cheekbones

    Correct Answer
    C. The hairline, jawline, under the chin and cheekbones
    Explanation
    When shadowing, it is important to shade the hairline, jawline, under the chin, and cheekbones. These areas are typically where shadows naturally occur on the face due to the structure and contours. By shading these areas, it helps to create depth and dimension, giving a more realistic and three-dimensional appearance to the drawing or artwork.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    When highlighting, it is important not to forget the T-zone. What is the T-zone?

    • A.

      Forehead, nose, and chin

    • B.

      Eyebrows, nose, and neck

    • C.

      Forehead to chin and ear to ear

    Correct Answer
    A. Forehead, nose, and chin
    Explanation
    The T-zone refers to the area of the face that includes the forehead, nose, and chin. This term is commonly used in skincare and makeup application as these areas tend to have more oil production and are prone to breakouts. By highlighting the T-zone, one can draw attention to the center of the face and create a more balanced and radiant look.

    What is the most important thing when shaping eyebrows?

    • A.

      Plucking

    • B.

      Cutting long hairs

    • C.

      Symmetry

    Correct Answer
    C. Symmetry
    Explanation
    Symmetry is the most important thing when shaping eyebrows because it ensures that both eyebrows are balanced and aligned with each other. When eyebrows are symmetrical, they enhance the overall appearance of the face and create a more harmonious look. Achieving symmetry involves carefully measuring and shaping the eyebrows to ensure that they are the same length, thickness, and shape. This can be done by using tools such as a brow pencil or brush to map out the desired shape and then carefully plucking or trimming any stray hairs to achieve the desired symmetry.

    Correct Answer
    B. Make sure to ask your client if he/she is ok with tweezing.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to make sure to ask your client if he/she is okay with tweezing. This is important because as a professional, it is crucial to prioritize the client's comfort and preferences. By asking for their consent, you ensure that they are comfortable with the procedure and avoid any potential discomfort or dissatisfaction. It also shows respect for their autonomy and allows them to have a say in the treatment they receive.

    • C.

      Upward to give an uplifting and youthful look.

    Correct Answer
    C. Upward to give an uplifting and youthful look.
    Explanation
    When applying eye shadow, moving the brush upward can give an uplifting and youthful look. This technique helps to create the illusion of lifted eyes and a more open appearance. By blending the eyeshadow upwards towards the brow bone, it can create a lifting effect and make the eyes appear more awake and youthful.

      An upside-down “U

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    C. An inverted “V”
    Explanation
    When you apply eye shadow from the lash line to the outer center of the lid and then back across the lid to the inner corner, it is called an inverted "V". This technique involves creating a V shape with the eye shadow, starting from the outer corner and blending it towards the inner corner of the eye. It helps to define and contour the eyes, creating a more dramatic and elongated look.

    What are the basic eyeliner shapes that other looks build off of?

    • A.

      The straight eyeliner

    • B.

      The cat-eyes

    • C.

      The natural eyeliner

    • D.

      A and C

    Correct Answer
    D. A and C
    Explanation
    The basic eyeliner shapes that other looks build off of are the straight eyeliner and the natural eyeliner. These two shapes serve as the foundation for various eyeliner styles and can be easily modified or enhanced to create different looks. The straight eyeliner provides a clean and simple line along the lash line, while the natural eyeliner follows the shape of the eye and enhances its natural beauty. By combining these two shapes or making slight adjustments to them, one can achieve different eyeliner styles like the cat-eyes or more intricate designs.

  • 31. 

    When applying Asian eyeliner, you should locate the fold on your client’s eyelid.

    • A.

      With the eye open

    • B.

      With the eye closed

    Correct Answer
    A. With the eye open
    Explanation
    When applying Asian eyeliner, it is important to locate the fold on the client's eyelid with the eye open. This is because the fold on the eyelid can vary in position when the eye is closed, making it difficult to accurately apply the eyeliner. By locating the fold with the eye open, the makeup artist can ensure that the eyeliner is applied precisely along the natural contour of the eyelid, resulting in a more flattering and professional look.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    Asian eyeliner should

    • A.

      Be a thin line at the base of the lash line.

    • B.

      Cover the lid from the lash line to eye brow.

    • C.

      Cover the eyelid only and never reach near the brow.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cover the eyelid only and never reach near the brow.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Cover the eyelid only and never reach near the brow." This answer is appropriate because it specifically addresses the application of Asian eyeliner. Asian eyeliner is typically applied as a thin line on the eyelid, without extending towards the brow. This technique enhances the shape and appearance of Asian eyes, creating a more defined and natural look.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    For a heavy Asian fold

    • A.

      The line visible when the eye is open will be thinner.

    • B.

      The covered area will be higher and heavier.

    Correct Answer
    B. The covered area will be higher and heavier.
    Explanation
    The given answer states that for a heavy Asian fold, the covered area will be higher and heavier. This means that when the eye is open, the fold of skin that covers the eye will be larger and more prominent. This is a common characteristic of Asian eye shapes, where the fold of skin above the eyelid is more pronounced compared to other ethnicities. This explanation suggests that the heavy Asian fold results in a larger covered area, making the eye appear higher and heavier.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    What are the two ways to curl eyelashes?

    • A.

      An eyelash curler, a spoon

    • B.

      An eyelash curler, a knife

    • C.

      An eyelash curler, mascara

    Correct Answer
    A. An eyelash curler, a spoon
    Explanation
    Using an eyelash curler is a common and effective way to curl eyelashes. It works by clamping the lashes and giving them a curled shape. Another unconventional method is using a spoon. By heating the spoon slightly and then pressing it against the lashes, they can be curled. However, it is important to exercise caution when using a heated spoon to avoid any injuries. Mascara, although commonly used to enhance the appearance of lashes, does not directly curl them.

    False eyelashes are normally applied,

    • A.

      Before eye shadow and eyeliner

    • B.

      After eye shadow and eyeliner

    Correct Answer
    B. After eye shadow and eyeliner
    Explanation
    False eyelashes are typically applied after eye shadow and eyeliner because applying them before would make it difficult to apply these products smoothly and evenly. By applying false eyelashes after eye shadow and eyeliner, it allows for a seamless integration of the false lashes with the rest of the eye makeup. This order also helps to ensure that the false lashes adhere properly to the eyelid and stay in place throughout the day or evening.

    Sometimes it is necessary to use a liner to cover the shine from dried lash glue

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sometimes, after applying lash glue and allowing it to dry, the shine from the glue can be visible. To counteract this, a liner can be used to cover the shine and create a more natural-looking finish. This is especially helpful when wearing false eyelashes, as it helps to blend the lash line with the rest of the eye makeup.

By pumping it only once, you can help preserve the mascara and ensure that it lasts longer.
