How will color theory enhance my work?

The art of color theory is essential in the building of all makeup looks, and in troubleshooting technique, as in perfectly matching skin tones and correcting unwanted discolorations by neutralising methods only achieved by the practice of color theory.

How will I attain a portfolio?

The intention of this seminar was inspired by the journey’s that Roque Cozzette has made globally facilitating seminars and seeing that most artists aren’t aligned to the opportunities to build a collection of images to represent their work. If you want to attract a client or agent to represent you, you must have a mirror of your work to show the world. It starts with our seminar photo shoots.

What will I learn about the industry so, I can make the best choices?

Our creator has more than 3 decades in the industry – including Fashion (NY, Milan & Paris shows 10 years) , Retail, Esthetics, Print, Photography and Product Development. All of this experiences are poured into the seminars to example the insights and etiquette required to function in these rarified opportunities. Our live photo shoots are geared up to give attendees a real experience of working on-set with a photographer.

How is "Intention" going to help me?

We have learned from experience that we create in two ways 1. By default. Which means we are simply open to learn, create or experience, however we may not have a defined path and anything may be available. This is ok, but there may be unwanted opportunities that arise that can slow the growth process.

2. Defined intention – By initiating the setting of intentions prior to moving forward is a great way to focus your desires to align to only the wanted. We facilitate our seminars to instill a focussed way of technique and mindset that attendees can customize to align to their personal path of choice.
