CONTRA-ACTIONS AND CONTRA INDICATIONS By Claudia Gilman and Rea Powell
Contra Actions A contra action is something that go wrong during a treatment, or something that can stop the make up treatment being carried out. For example a client having an allergic reaction half way through their make up. Some more examples of contra actions are: ♫ The clients skin is sensitive and erythema occurs during the make up. ♫ An allergic reaction occurs. ♫ The client does not like having products near his or her eyes and flinches when the artist attempts to apply product. ♫ The client failed to mention a previous contra indication or what not aware they had one. That is noticed during the treatment, for example an eye infection. ♫ A rash occurs. ♫ The clients eyes begin to water and smudge make up application. If a contra action occurs a cold compress must be applied or the product removed. Stop make up application.
