So over the winter and spring months myself and the MMF team were asked to work on some oh so fabulous projects for some pretty fantastic peeps!
Who knew… 7 years ago… people thought I was crazy opening a Bare Escentuals Mineral Makeup Boutique in OMG, Ballston Spa??? (not Albany or NYC!!!) I heard, “oh that place will never make it” and “why did you open in Ballston Spa?” Fast forward… 7 years later…we triple our size and we are asked to provide ALL of the artistry and chapter demos for Milady’s Standard Makeup textbook, the first in years. Pretty cool!
Watch, myself, Kyle, Suzan, Angela and Amy of MMF in action below, along with an international dream team of authors and artists who provided copy for the book:
The Make Me Fab Team was commisssioned for several days to provide all the makeup and hair demonstrations for the book, while I was also asked to return as assistant producer for the video DVD shoot. Not only did we perform the services for the step by step photos and instuctions, but our team was there to create the dramatic after shots!. We also dissected every instruction given in the book for accuracy as real working makeup artists.
It’s so gratifying to be chosen as world class worthy of helping to produce an international textbook, while also able to provide the Saratoga Springs/ Capital District region hair and makeup services at affordable prices. Upstate NY is truly a fabulous place to work and live!
Thanks, as well, for the opportunity to work with other fantastic professionals including Aleish Pierce, Michelle D’aillard, another fab Ballston Spa native, and Gina Boyce. And… another special fabulous thumbs up to Daysha (the coolest chic around) and Tom of Visual Recollection in Saratoga Springs, NY, where we shot the entire book! Not to mention a few very gorgeous models, including Sarah Von Ouhl who saved the day and a very sassy burn survivor we endearingly refer to as T-Rex! A very special thank you go out to the most amazing editor, Jessica, who also selected us for the project. You have no idea how much I adore you and your quiet sensibility and calmness!
Watch for more behind the scenes as we return when Milady decides to shoot the companion DVD! Coming out soon!!
I have to say alot of passion, hard work and persistance have paid off!
