hairstylists with professionals from the film, TV, music and
photography industries. Make-Up Artist magazine swung by for a visit.

just from the people that I’ve met at the event,” she said.
Make-up artist Levi Vieira,
a first-time attendee, said the mixer “… gives us the opportunity to
really get to know people, not only in a professional level but on a
personal level as well.”
and make-up artists from all over the greater Los Angeles area attended
the mixer. Several guests expressed excitement about the possibility of
receiving health benefits through a pending HMAN group plan.
The event allowed people from different parts of the entertainment industry to meet, including photographer Jeff Carrillo(left) and hair and make-up artist Mariah Nicole. “There’s definitely work out there,” Nicole said. “You just have to find it.”
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.
