WebPhotoSchool is proud to present commercial photographer Billy Pegram's first lesson, which illustrates, in his own words, "the basic steps that are needed to apply make-up properly."

Here, you'll follow along with Billy's Photo Stylist/Makeup Artist, Wendalynn Nelson, as she walks you through each step of the creative makeup process.

This lesson illustrates the basic application for simple, clean head shots and works well for many commercial and non-commercial applications.
