It’s no secret that make-up is a multi-billion dollar industry and some products do work magic. But to me the real magician behind the scene is the make-up artist, and if you’re in my line of work it’s easy to see why.
A properly done make-up defines the character of the portrait subject in such a way it is simply irreplaceable. You’re not gonna believe the amount of Photoshop work is needed if a make-up job is screwed up in the first place. And if you’ve ever watched a real make-up artist use his/her brushes, you’ll think you are watching Picaso or Monet at work!
