Profile of Makeup Artists and Visagists:

The term visagistic comes from the French word visage and means face. It is the art of making people more beautiful and transforming them using colours and haircuts. In order to achieve a harmonious result, it is of fundamental importance to identify and determine the skin tone. The most important thing is to establish whether the skin is warm or cold in tone.
