The Hair & Makeup Artist Network hosted its first annual Monster
Ball Halloween Celebration on Thursday, Oct. 23 at Tangier Restaurant
in Los Feliz, California. Hair and make-up artists from film,
television and print attended the event and helped transform
partygoers, including directors, producers, photographers, agents and
performers, into various creatures and characters. The Trainwrecks and
Fu Dogs performed live at the event. There was also a costume contest,
with door prizes donated by Cinema Secrets, Elain Cosmetics, Mothership
Salon, Vivid M.D. Skincare and others.
The Hair and Makeup Artist Network was created by make-up artist
Michelle Lee as a way to help fellow make-up artists learn the best way
to network in the entertainment industry. The Network has hosted
workshops taught by the Cloutier Agency, Smashbox, Paul Mitchell, Make
Up For Ever, Fred Blau, celebrity hairstylist Neeko and many others.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.
