Makeup Gourmet

Pride Month Is Here

Pride Celebrates the dynamic human condition in all its past, current and future manifestations.

At Makeup Gourmet,  we celebrate the positive in everyone.

Makeup Gourmet has been offering unbiased makeup services since 2003.


When SF mayor Gavin Newsom first opened the doors for same-sex marriage, Makeup Gourmet responded.

Free Makeup At Gay Weddings
If you’re in a hurry to your same-sex nuptials and don’t have time to get pretty, San Francisco’s own Makeup Gourmet — aka Chris Scott — will be camped outside City Hall on June 23, brushes in hand, to offer free make-up service. See, not everybody is out to make a buck on the gay wedding boom expected here.



Why is he doing it? Because The Gourmet wants to contribute something in his small way to the good of the cause. Give back. Didn’t your English teacher always say write what you know? In this case, it’s blush what you know.
The Gourmet is looking for some celebrity face to powder, too. He’s emailed Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi, offering to paint them pretty, too, but no luck yet for the newly engaged celebs. Maybe George Takei or some of the other Trekkie has-beens will need a touch-up.

In Makeup Gourmet’s own small way, we have helped members of the LGBTQ+ community feel more like themselves.

To that end, we are celebrating by knocking 50% off all our M2F makeup applications and lessons during Pride month 2024.
Extended thru July 14

Purchases valid now and after Pride month.

MALE TO FEMALE TRANSFORMATION MAKEUP APPLICATION: was $150, NOW $75

MALE TO FEMALE TRANSFORMATION HANDS-ON MAKEUP LESSONS was $200, NOW $100


Pride month’s calendar is already brimming with events. Hopefully you have time to treat yourself.

Here is a good place for what is happening this month. https://sf.funcheap.com/category/event/event-types/holidays/pride-holidays/


My Pride sentiment is to celebrate who you are, and let others celebrate who they are. 

Seems simple and fair that as humans we do our best, and not hurt anyone or anything in the process.

Warmly,
Chris Scott

Makeup Training Manual/ Bulk Discount

MAKEUP TRAINING BOOK + FREE COMPANION VIDEOS
FWAHCOVEROPEN

In my ongoing mission to give away my makeup expertise, I make this gesture.

Beauty school students/students of beauty crave more makeup training. Since makeup artistry is a trade that does not require a state license to perform, the education in beauty schools is mostly hygienic and technique basic.

I have held Master Makeup Training classes in beauty schools and at the Academy of Art and students always ask for a training manual with the material I teach.  This was one of the main motivators to get my method in a highly communicative book form to pass on this information.

The fact that this book is a#1 international best seller speaks to its broad appeal and effectiveness.

Face with a Heart speaks to the makeup artist in everyone. It applies equally to self-application and application to others. As I see it, a face is a face and makeup is makeup. There is no difference in who is applying makeup, the rules are always the same.

I want to make this book easily accessible to students on a budget.

Here are some very good reasons why Face with a heart makes an excellent training manual for students of beauty.

Key Strengths:

• Teaches a method that works for all face types and lifestyles.

• Provides the artist with a fail-proof order of application.

• Includes free companion video tutorials for each ‘How’ chapter of the book.

• Maximizes efficient application without jeapordizing stellar results.

• Clearly defines a natural, balanced, dramatic and trend makeup.

• Informs how to communicate with clients to best fulfill their needs.

• Clarifies the ‘Why’ first, then the ‘How’ of each step of makeup application.

• Imparts an aesthetic that is authentic to each client.

How Correctors Can Create the Ultimate Energy Lift to Your Face

How Correctors Can Create the Ultimate Energy Lift to Your Face

In this video, Makeup Gourmet Chris Scott explains why he recommends correctors rather than concealers to even out the complexion, and demonstrates his technique.

In traditional makeup application – as is taught at most cosmetic counters – concealer is used to disguise dark circles and blemishes. Foundation is then spread over the face, covering up our actual skin and replacing it with a blank canvas on which to apply the rest of the makeup.

It is a method that has definitely carried results, however there is now a new way to show your skin off, rather than disguise it. As a complement to this new approach, light is redirected on our skin so it travels up and outwards to illuminate our eyes and lips giving an energy lifting vault of light on the face.

In part one of this series, we will talk about the role that correctors play in my Face with A Heart makeup technique, how they translate to your face, and why it is time to see yourself in a whole new light.

In this video I will explain:

  • What correctors are
  • How they differ from concealers

And I will demonstrate:

  • How to apply correctors
  • Where to place correctors so they redirect how light reflects and travels on your skin

Please note: This is the core of the Face with a Heart Authentic Beauty Makeup method when it comes to the appearance of skin. Once you grasp this new way of seeing yourself, you will change how you do your makeup for the rest of your life.

Please let me know if this blog was of value to you and share your own corrector/concealer tips in the comments box below. I would love to hear how you get on trying this new technique – tell me how useful you found the demo and how you found the results. You can also use the comments box to tell me what interests and concerns you when it comes to which makeup colors to choose. Please let me know so I can fashion future blogs that are relevant and interesting to you.
