I would take it as a compliment. I've been told that before and I definitely believe it about myself. I'm very pretty without makeup, but when I wear makeup I can't help but look at myself in the mirror and think, "Damn, I'm hot :)".
I've seen people before who I think have perfect faces for makeup, and some people who can't pull make-up off. For example, my mom is really pretty, but I don't think make-up looks all that good on her. In my opinion, I think it depends a lot of your facial feautures. Obviously, lol...
But, yeah...definitely a compliment. Not a huge fan of old hollywood glam, though. I usually do my make-up a lot like kim kardashians. She is the perfect example of someone who has a good face for makep!
It was an industry compliment. They have to do makeup on people regardless, so they're always happy at getting one that they know has the perfect skin tone and features; one they can work wonders with. It's akin to a landscaper being called in to work on a property that resides on the edge of a forest and a lake. It's just too perfect an opportunity to pass up.
It may not have sounded like a compliment to you, but among them, it was.
Industry compliment. It means you have great face shape and skin probably. Makeup artists love to find a naturally pretty girl that they can enhance even more with makeup. It's not an insult, everyone looks better with well done makeup.
Make-up artists are in a sense, artists. When they see the perfect image or find the perfect inspiration, they want to paint it, express it.
To make-up artists, your face is a blank canvas. You prepare the skin properly, cleansing, toning, moisturizing, then using a primer. You then begin your masterpiece. It's no different from a photographer spotting a perfect scene and wanting to be the first to photograph it.
It could be either a compliment or insult, it just depends on how you view the use of makeup. If you view make-up as fun and you enjoy using it, it'd be a compliment because she was saying you had the perfect facial structure and features for her planned image. If you find the use of make-up unnecessary and degrading, it could be an insult.
But you have to be honest to an extent. Certain types of make-up help cover flaws, so while it might be insulting, it was also helpful if she covered any blemishes or breakouts or used a green concealer to cancel out the redness.
some people have the perfect face for make-up it just means that you can wear your make-up in different ways and your facial structure will compliment it...we wasn't dissing you it was a major compliment!
