I spent the day on the other side of the chair as a model for international, renowned makeup artist Roshar’s makeup workshop at Makeup First School with photography by Robert Beczarski (this photo was taken on an iPhone). This hair/makeup look was done by the uber-creative and talented Arlene Orlando. It was great to witness the creative process swirling all around me. While I’ve never been shy in front of a camera, modeling is not a skill I have practiced all that much. It was a blast! And the pro photos are going to be amazing! So grateful to have been part of such a great day. Many thanks for having me to my alma matter, Makeup First Chicago!

Halloween 2014 came and went. I spent the day working makeup at the MAC Pro Store on Armitage in Chicago (wearing Mermaid hair/makeup). Halloween is the ultimate makeup holiday and it was so much fun to be amidst the super-creative artists at MAC celebrating visual expression.photo

Here is a screenshot of the lovely Vanessa Hughes on set for Esemplastic’s latest feature film from Ed Pionke entitled “Asymptotes.” I subbed  for the key makeup artist for the day and had an awesome with some of Chicago’s finest actors. The hair/makeup was all natural styles, which I always love executing.

Do you use CLR? That stuff is magic! It’ll get a rust stain out and make your coffee maker work like new! I worked hair/makeup on a commercial shoot for the amazing stuff. Here’s the final version of the CLR Commercial:

Unbeknownst to me, I got caught in the action! A fellow crew member snapped a candid pic of me scrutinizing the image on a monitor on-set for a commercial for a law firm in Chicago. It’s true for any profession: Attention to detail is essential!

Brushes. I just got done cleaning my brushes and thought the layout of them on my counter to be picture-worthy. There is nothing like a brush-belt full of clean brushes! The majority of my brushes are from Crown Brush and from MAC. I recommend checking out Crown Brush for budget-friendly, decent, sturdy brushes. My MAC brushes are pricier, but the majority of them are over 5 years old and still amazing. Brushes really do make a difference… but there are times when your fingers work best! As always with makeup, it’s a matter of personal preference and using what works for you.   brushes
