Stila Cosmetics Presents Master Class at IMATS Los Angeles
Dominick Briguglio, Stila director of global sales and pro artistry
Posted: Thursday May 31, 2012
Join Dominick Briguglio and Stila Cosmetics for an exclusive two-part event: a master class and a master challenge—Live on the Edge of Fashion and Beauty With Stila Cosmetics.
Part one will include a demo of a hot fall look from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Participants will then break off on their own to recreate that look on their models, with coaching from Stila experts.
Part two is the master challenge, in which Stila artists will act as fashion designers, presenting participants with an inspiration storyboard and clues to the make-up looks they want to accompany their designs. Stila artists will have the exact pictures of the looks, but won’t share them with participants, who will try to interpret the clues and create the looks on their models. The company’s make-up experts will judge the results.
The first participant to exactly recreate one of the looks will win first place and travel to New York in September to work with the Stila team at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (Stila will provide hotel and airfare). Second- and third-place prizes will also be awarded, and all participants will receive a Stila goody bag and career-boosting instruction.
This master class will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, June 22 at the Pasadena Convention Center, prior to IMATS Los Angeles 2012. Students must provide their own tools and models (Stila will provide cosmetics for use; participants will remove their models’ first make-up look before moving on to the second). Class size is limited to 20 students maximum. Click here to purchase tickets.
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.
Make-Up Artist magazine is now accepting student competition
applications for the 2009 Los Angeles International Make-Up Artist
Trade Show. The themes for this year are Gothic and X-Men Mutants. The competition is open to students of a recognized make-up school and
to those who graduated 12 months prior to the competition. Make-Up Artist will only accept competition entries postmarked by May 22, 2009.
If you like Prescriptives products, you’d better stock up while you
can: On Sept. 17, Estée Lauder Companies announced it will stop
production and global wholesale distribution of the brand by Jan. 31,
2010. The brand will still be sold online at www.prescriptives.com
while inventory lasts.
