BRENTON LEE FASHION SHOW MAKEUP
Hello beauties! Today’s post is all about my experience doing makeup with the April Love Pro Makeup Team at the Brenton Lee Fashion Show in Pasadena. April, owner of and master educator at April Love Pro Makeup Academy, contacted me with the opportunity to be part of the team for the Brenton Lee Fashion Show. April consistently contacts me, and other graduates from her school, with opportunities for makeup gigs. I had a fabulous time with the team behind the scenes at The Brenton Lee Fashion show.
Brenton Lee Fashion Show Makeup Behind the Scenes
I arrived to The Brenton Lee Salon and met up with the other makeup artists who were part of the team. As is the case with most makeup gigs like these, we had a lot of down time. When it was time to bust out makeup looks, however, we had to do it impeccably and quickly! During the down time, it was so interesting to see Brenton Lee and the team behind the fashion show put every thing together. The models were lined up, to be fitted into their wardrobe, accessories and even colorful wigs! Between my 4 teammates and I, we did makeup for about 40 models. For some models, we only had a 15 minute window to create a beautiful look. This is where being neat comes in handy, because if you have 15 minutes to do a black smokey eye, there is no time to clean up fall out!
All in all, my experience at the Brenton Lee Fashion show was a good one. Like any other gig, I took the opportunity to network with models , hair stylists, and photographers at the show. Every on-set experience is different and full of opportunities to learn and grow as an artist. At this particular fashion show, I fine tuned my skills to come up with a look and execute it in a short amount of time. Thanks for reading!
