Creative makeup, face & body art can be a fantastic way to enhance a performance and take the whole experience to another level. Dancers, actors, walk around entertainers, all can be transformed to just really add to that sense of escapism and enjoyment for the spectators.I have worked and am comfortable in high pressured environments and situations.
The below pictures are of some of the performers looks I created working with Black Birdcage Agency for The Ivy, Manchester Spinningfields huge circus event reopening their rooftop terrace. The performers range from contortionists, fire breathers, jugglers, trapeze artists and more!
The images below are from The Brits 2019 working as part of the www.make-upps.co.uk team for EighteenTwentySix as part of the iconic Calvin Harris performance. Painting dancers for the Dua Lipa section of the medley.
The images below are from Traumatica Horror Nights 2019 at Europa Park in Germany where I was part of the Real Mccoy FX makeup team. Our team of 7 had around 200 live actors, ice skaters and dancers to makeup for each evenings performances over a 21 night run. Some characters were performing out on the streets which meant we could take a little longer, some were on stage and some characters in the houses were in dark environments so could be completed in 3-5 minute, but we needed to each average out approximately 10 minutes per performer by the end of the night. To use our time effectively meant really understanding the show lighting conditions and how the characters were going to be seen by the public dependant upon their positions.
