Sometimes it's the student who teaches the teacher and in this particular case — it's the celebrity client teaching the makeup artist. Here, our guest writer, celebrity makeup artist, Brett Freedman, shares with us his role-reversing experiences.
In my career as a makeup artist I've been turned on to some really great beauty tricks. Some are self-learned from trial and error, some are from other makeup artists, and more than a few have come from the subject themselves. There's a difference between doing makeup on a gal that's not in the entertainment industry (or as I term them, "civilian") and someone who gets made up as part of their job. Civilians are excited to try new colours, textures, and see their faces through the eyes of a pro; whereas actresses, singers, and models have seen their faces made up many different ways, making them hyperkeen on how products feel, wear and photograph. Who better to give insight into glam than the canvas themselves?
