BMC: 從Blanche Macdonald畢業之後,你從事了什麼性質的工作?與什麼人一起工作?

LL: 從BMC畢業之後, 我到Lola化妝品公司做了他們的示範化妝師。我跟幾位師姐師兄一起在溫哥華不同的地點做不同的時裝show,化妝活動等等。這是我第一份工作所以是一個非常難忘的經驗。我從這份工作裡,學了很多關於化妝品零售的知識及吸收了很多工作經驗,特別在不同的面孔上彩妝。

因為我很喜歡時尚,所以我會自己去接觸有關化妝跟時尚的工作,列如在時裝show和photo shoots做化妝師。從這些工作幾會中我可以與許多本地有名的時裝設計師,髮型設計師和攝影師合作。

雖然我很愛溫哥華,?但大約在畢業兩年之後,我終於決定搬到台北市。背後原因是因為我覺得台北的化妝業競爭十分激烈所以我希望能夠挑戰自己去成為一個更棒的化妝師。

Wedding Belles

Wedding Belles

According to CNN/Money, the cost of the average wedding has now escalated to $30,000!

And even within this ballooning budget, nothing is more important to the bride than looking absolutely gorgeous on her special day.

And if that means investing in the services of the professional makeup artist, that is the one expense that is well worth the investment.

While it has become de-rigeur to book a professional makeup artist for the bride, we are now seeing a trend where these professional makeup services extend to the wedding party and family members.

For ethnic weddings where celebrations can span several days, makeup artists are booked for multiple functions and are required to create a variety of looks. And with the growing popularity of destination weddings, in-demand makeup artists can be flown to exotic locales to provide their special creative magic.

It's All About Lips and Liner

Spring Style – The Province

Makeup: Vibrant pout, defined eyes are in for spring.

The spring 2006 face is all about the mouth – with eyes and cheekbones forming the perfect frame.

That natural look? Not that natural. "You're using six or seven products for a 'no-makeup' look," says makeup artist and Blanche Macdonald Makeup School Instructor Jon Hennessey.

"It's not just sheer; it's sheer with dimension."

Yikes! But don't panic, folks. That's why we called Hennessey for help.

Spring Style

SKIN IS IN
Moisterize lips first. Hennessey's "secret weapon" is Elizabeth Arden's Eight-Hour Cream ($24/50mL).

Foundation? Hennessey does not really even like to call it that. "Your skin is the foundation," he says. (The product) is coverage. What you use depends on the condition of your skin." Face Atelier ($24/15mL at www.faceatelier.com) has a range from sheer to opaque coverage and MAC's Face and Body ($35/120mL) offers great sheer to medium.
NOW FOR THE CLOSEUP
Contouring is key. Use a chocolately taupe cream blush without obvious colour like Cherché by MAC ($21) under and up around cheekbones like a "C". If you're fair, use a tiny bit. If your skin is darker, intensify.

Highlight upper brow bone and cheekbones with a light product like Champagne Sheer by Face Atelier ($24/15mL www.faceatelier.com) to reflect light in a subtle way.

Memoirs Of A BC-Grown Makeup Artist

Arts & Life – The Vancouver Sun

memoires

Even as a kid in Victoria, Todd McIntosh was obsessed with makeup. "I was doing makeup around the age of eight – trying to copy the popular TV soap opera Dark Shadows," he says.

The obsession paid off, as McIntosh is now working as a makeup artist on big screen productions such as Memoirs of a Geisha, playing in theatres now.

McIntosh's career began at 17, when he got a job in the makeup department at CBC TV Vancouver after a stint in community theatre.

He left there to go freelance and finally got into the union after being hired to do makeup for the 1986 Darryl Hannah film, The Clan of the Cave Bear, shot near Penticton. He also found work here as makeup department head on the 1987 series, Wiseguy, the Look Who's Talking flicks, and TV's Neon Rider doing beauty and glamour makeup as well as special makeup effects and prosthetics.

Then, in 1990, McIntosh packed up and moved to L.A.

"After seeing the industry grow in dribs and drabs and seeing a barren future for special makeup in this city, which I wanted so much to learn and do.

Of course, a year after I left, The X-Files hit and Vancouver has been on a continuous roll since then," he jokes.

But things haven't been too shabby for McIntosh in Los Angeles.

One of his first jobs there was on 1991's City Slickers, he worked with Shirley MacLaine on Out on a Limb, did the aging makeup on Mr. Saturday Night, went on to Robin Hood: Men in Tights, The Brady Bunch Movie and its sequel, and most recently was makeup department head on the hit show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, for which he won an Emmy in 1997.

He also did prosthetic surgery makeup on the Vancouver-shot series Traffic, and found time to write the curriculum for the Blanche Macdonald Institute's Makeup Division, and to teach in the school as well.

McIntosh's latest work can be seen in Steven Spielberg's Memoirs of a Geisha, on big screens now.
