Hello all you beautiful people and fellow artists!! The name of this blog is "Want to work backstage as a makeup artist?", I choose this headline
because many artists have a dream of one day working backstage for LA/NYC Fashion Week or a fashion show etc. If you have ever worked backstage for a fashion show then you know the skills needed for this side of the beauty industry go far beyond the capabilites of your makeup artistry. The main skill that you must possess when working backstage is SPEED!! Not only speed, but speed with the ability to produce a beautiful result on your models that will please the makeup head. Airbrush makeup and the techniques we teach in our workshops gave me the ability to do just that. Last night we did a runway show for Panache Bridal in Beverly Hills with our friends Briannah Jayde and Lashelle Ullie. The gowns were gorgeous and the designers were there as well. These gowns were so detailed and looked like something from a fairytale. (BTW, the price tag on these wedding gowns START at $25,000).
We had 4 hours to get 16 models, hair, makeup and gowns on. I focused on doing correct, conceal, foundation, blush, contour, highlight and brows for the makeup team. I did this all with the airbrush using Graftobian Products. 16 Faces in less than 4 hours. That was 15 minutes on each girl. I know that the airbrush skills that I possess and teach in our workshops kept my speed up and gave me the ability to finish on time. The girls all raved how porcelian and flawless their skin looked and some even signed up for one of our workshops so that can do this at home for their everyday routine. Their are so many benefits to airbrush makeup and with the correct training you to can have the speed you need to start getting your foot in the door to working backstage. If you are quick and efficient the makeup head will always remember you and rebook you for future jobs.
