Artist Redefined: James Vincent & Jon Hennessey – Saturday October 1, 12:30pm-2pm
The cultural shift that has taken place over the last few years has made a major impact on the beauty industry. As artists we have an incredible opportunity to take a fresh look at our existing landscape and explore all of the possibilities available to us. In this session we will revisit the title of “Makeup Artist”, and examine some new ways for artists to build their businesses and brands. We will refine where we delegate our energy, strategically targeting specific tools/skills to practice, update, etc. We will help you better understand the difference between being an artist that is Acceptable vs. Unique vs. Exceptional. In this panel we will examine and explore these three levels of being through the lenses of Artistry, Marketing, Portfolio and more. Don’t miss the chance to learn from the experts and see the unlimited potential this industry allows.
The definition of “Makeup Artist” is constantly evolving. It is a title that no longer means simply someone who applies makeup. We now see ourselves in an industry that allows the possibility of using our knowledge and skills in immeasurable ways to make a living. One of the most rewarding and lucrative areas available in the modern makeup industry is working with a brand. In this first time Makeup Show session, Danessa Myricks and Lijha Stewart bring forward their combined experience with iconic brands including Becca, Benefit, It Cosmetics, MAKE UP FOR EVER, and Morphe, as well as Danessa Myricks Beauty to offer insight into this exciting makeup arena. In this session you will learn how to land, and work with makeup brands. Understanding the who’s who of production, navigating working on video & still sets, multitasking, and camera retouching. Do not miss the chance to learn from these two and develop an entirely new pillar of your makeup career.
