    D. Electrical equipment
    E. Cooking oils and fats
    Explanation
    A water type fire extinguisher is not effective in putting out flammable liquids, flammable gases, electrical equipment, and cooking oils and fats. This is because water can spread flammable liquids, react with flammable gases, conduct electricity in electrical equipment, and cause hot oil to splatter and spread in the case of cooking oils and fats. Therefore, a water type fire extinguisher should not be used for these types of fires.

    Explanation
    A dry powder type fire extinguisher is effective in putting out solids (wood, paper, cloth, etc), flammable liquids, flammable gases, and electrical equipment fires. Dry powder extinguishers contain a fine powder that works by smothering the fire and interrupting the chemical reaction that sustains it. The powder forms a barrier between the fuel and the oxygen, effectively extinguishing the fire. This type of extinguisher is versatile and can be used on a wide range of fire types, making it a suitable choice for many different situations.

Oily skin is also prone to acne, as the excess oil can clog pores and lead to the formation of pimples and blackheads.

Natural daylight provides the most accurate representation of colors, allowing you to see the true tones of your makeup.

This type of lighting minimizes shadows and allows for better visibility, making it easier to see any imperfections or blending issues. Using a clear, white light also helps to avoid any color distortion that may occur under different types of lighting, ensuring that the makeup looks its best in any setting.

This is because the film is not optimized to accurately register green light, causing it to be rendered as a neutral grey tone.

    Green is meant to tone down redness, blemishes, and broken capillaries. Green color correctors are used in makeup to counteract the redness in the skin. Redness can be caused by various factors such as acne, rosacea, or irritation. By applying a green color corrector, the green hue neutralizes the redness, creating a more even skin tone. Similarly, blemishes and broken capillaries often appear as red spots on the skin, and using a green color corrector helps to minimize their visibility.

    Titanium Dioxide
    Explanation
    Titanium Dioxide is a chemical compound that is commonly used as a white pigment in many products, including paint, sunscreen, and cosmetics. When used in flash photography, it can cause a reflection due to its high refractive index and ability to scatter light. This reflection helps to enhance the brightness and clarity of the photograph by bouncing back the light from the flash, resulting in a more vibrant image.

    Highlighting is a makeup technique used to bring light back into the face.

By doing so, it creates a luminous and glowing effect, making the face appear brighter and more radiant.

      Oval face shape

    • D.

      Pear face shape

    Correct Answer
    C. Oval face shape
    Explanation
    Contouring and highlighting techniques are used to enhance and balance facial features. The oval face shape is considered the most balanced and ideal shape, with well-proportioned features. By contouring and highlighting strategically, one can further emphasize the natural symmetry of the oval face shape and create a more sculpted and defined appearance. This technique may involve shading the outer edges of the face to create the illusion of more structure and highlighting the high points of the face to add dimension and brightness.
