As a professional Makeup Artist I would like to say that Makeup makes the Halloween costume. I hope you will enjoy this hair and makeup looks that I created in 2016 Season.
Key West is famous for it’s Fantasy Fast-one of the major events of the year and of my favorite times. Being an artist I do get to use creativity,originality and have fun. Professional makeup application is guaranteed to be a hit, long-wear products cater to the theatrical set, they’re perfect for Halloween diehards who need staying power.
I like to go all-out during the spookiest time of year to ensure you nab a totally unique, high-fashion ensemble.
The process begins with studying the character I think how can it be adapted on a face.I give myself enough time to study my new character, being close to his or her image and having time to relax and paint the face. Sometimes it can be weeks and sometimes its days, depends on the inspiration. It is a kind of acting process before. I must be a character.
I use mostly an Italian product, IndioColor sticks and Makeup for Ever, a very good brans for theater and cinema. I mix various brands because I need wax and collodium sometimes.
have fun to create with your own possibilities. I buy old stuff at markets like wigs and accessories — it is extremely fun searching for good stuff to create a character.
Creatively yours Elena Southcott-Key West Hair and makeup Artist.
