How can I solve your beauty business problems? Here are a few ideas:

 

As a makeup artist. I’ve been doing makeup in New York for almost twenty years, mostly for fashion editorial and commercial advertising photo shoots. I came to New York with a fine arts/color theory background and trained under makeup legend and Shiseido Creative Director Dick Page. I have worked with many of the top editorial photographers in the business, including Partick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, and Walter Chin. Magazines I’ve worked for include Vogue, Teen Vogue Elle, and Allure. My portfolio site and client lists are here.

 

As a makeup artist, part two (training). Since I’ve been extensively trained in top makeup artists’ techniques, I can share these with your team of makeup artists, inspiring them to further achievements for your clients and their own careers.

 

As a line consultant. I can also work for your cosmetic company as a product or color consultant. I’m really good at mixing colors – a result of a natural affinity for color plus years of makeup and painting experience. And before I got into the nitty gritty of color mixing and makeup for photos, I worked in retail for both major makeup lines and in natural skincare, so I respect both the possibilities and limits of a retail product line.

 

As a media specialist. This one’s new. During 2009-2010 I went back to school and earned an MBA in Media Management, including thesis work in marketing, demographics, and television development. Since then I’ve co-produced an independent feature film, and developed Wild Beauty as a website and social media presence. I love mass media – mainstream television as well as gorgeously obscure fashion magazines – and I can help you translate ideas from one medium into another. (And yes, Wild Beauty would make a wonderful television show – if you’re interested, I’ve got a  WGA-registered pitch ready to go!)

 

As a panelist or speaker on beauty and culture. If you’ve been reading Wild Beauty, you know that I’m obsessed with the larger picture of beauty, from its history to its technology, and its larger social implications as well.  These opinions on beauty and culture can be shared via guest posts, quotes, and panel or television appearances.

 

You can advertise on Wild Beauty. Wild Beauty is a personal site (with personal opinions) that reaches a very diverse demographic of intelligent readers who love beauty. If you see that your brand would pair well with my readers, drop me an email, and we can discuss what you’re looking for.
