DIARY of a Makeup Artiste 

I am enjoying my pot of refreshing spiced apple organic tea whilst confirming events and appointments with Brides and their Wedding party. I am following all the latest news, and collections from Graduate Fashion week, in particular Central St Martins and the College I was trained at the London College of Fashion. 

The first ever Makeup Artistes Trade show IMATS was held over the weekend, at London Kensington Olympia from 3-5th June 2016. The professional Makeup Artistes show was presented by the prestigious Makeup Artiste Magazine, and is held 6 times a year Globally. London provided the backdrop for professional, students  and members of the Makeup and Cosmetic Industry with designated education, talks, artistry workshops, competitions and the must see demonstration classes. Since 2002 the event has seen an increase in the number of dedicated, creative and talented makeup artistes, body glamour creators and FX specialists.

Industry professionals gave insightful talks and seminars including the uber talented Hannah Martin the highly sought after artiste who was trained and works for Bobbi Brown, Body Painting champion Madelyn Greco, also attended the Trade show. The International and UK hair and makeup artistes from Oscar, BAFTA, TV and films also provided a glimpse of their rewarding and creative profession. 

The event was an exhibition of fast paced seminars with talks, demonstration and educated makeup workshops. This year the visitors had an opportunity to view a tour of the Makeup museum and watch the outstanding work demonstrated at the Battle of the Brushes student makeup competition.
The cast of the Revenant Oscar award winning hair, makeup and prosthetics team, took to the stage to enlighten the audience on their behind-the-scenes stories and classes at IMATS.

If you believe you have the determination talent and creativity, make sure you book next year, a must visit for those who wish to have a career in Film, Theater, Prosthetics or character design makeup, I would recommend that this is the show for you. 

Enjoy this Summer afternoon, I am off on appointments!
