Faith Hill Covers Redbook - Makeup Transformations
For the May issue of Redbook magazine Faith Hill underwent some amazing makeup transformations as Twiggy, Grace Kelly and Brigitte Bardot.
The Redbook photos attest to how important it is as a professional makeup artist to understand and study makeup looks and iconic beauties of the past. As an artist you will want to know how to recreate or interpret looks from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond. If you choose to work in film you may even be required to recreate looks from the Victorian and Renaissance Ages.
This advice also applies to hair and fashion stylists, understanding historic makeup styles are critical in the event you are required to style hair or pull wardrobe for shoots or filming. One way to become familiar with looks of the past is by researching photos of beauty icons and by watching old movies and video.
The library can also be a helpful place to find resources, in addition I have compiled a list of many of these books. You can find the links in the left sidebar.
