The only thing with practicing make up on a practice head is that in all honesty it will be difficult to get any real idea of how the colours will blend together,for example the eyes.
The plastic and skin are very different and personally I think it would be far more practical to practice on real people so to speak.
When I did my training at college we had to do several case studies then place the colours we had used onto a face drawn on paper,as I blended the colours together it gave a totally different result than that of when applied to a real face.
I think these dummy heads are good maybe for hair and even learning face painting techniques but for make-up,which involves a lot of blending I dont think it's very worthwhile.This is just my personal opinion though for what it's worth.:green:
