Elevate your Makeup Game

I am back from a wonderful week of #Elevation2016 in magical Provincetown MA with an amazing cast of makeup artists. The program is put on by The Powder Group and developed by Michael DeVellis and James Vincent. I cannot speak more highly of these two gentlemen and the programs they have created for working artists. As a professional makeup artist we have to be more than just a backstage technician. We have to be beauty experts, able to get in front of a camera, visible in social media, writers, educators, mentors, we have to be creative, we build communities, and we run businesses. It is a lot to take on.
Elevation was so well-crafted and each exercise we did was multi-faceted to challenge, nurture, awaken, and push us in all of these ways. Whether we were taking a drawing class at the local museum, mentoring young cosmetology students, developing character makeup, working on-camera, writing, or creating massive action around our businesses, each task wove into the next and provided me such an astounding experience.
The Powder Group in the real deal. Their mission is to grow and elevate the makeup artistry community. I highly encourage any of you in the business to join and take advantage of what they offer. (Including the clear bags TPG sells, I love them!)
Thank you James and Michael and TPG for all you give to the industry. We are so fortunate to have you with us.
Also, I’d like to thank the cosmetic companies who so generously provided us with new tools and gifts. #temptupro #stilacosmetics #skindinavia #Bdellium #embryolisseusa #henandmoon #iamthepowdergroup The Powder Group
