Makeup

Exploring COLORS, Textures and Techniques.


My interest in makeup began when I was in kindergarten and my mom brought home a VHS copy of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which included a special about the making of the music video. I understood that the creatures in the movies weren’t real but this was the first time I got a peek at just how they were made and I was mesmerized by Rick Baker’s makeup.

Years later I stole my mom’s foundation and wore it to school thinking that if I looked perfect, I would be more popular. I was noticed alright, but mostly because my mom and I are completely different shades.

That is when I began to learn what makeup can and cannot do. How it can accentuate, exaggerate, contour or camouflage and how to make it do all these things without people noticing. In this way makeup is magic.
