About The Artist
I was lucky enough to interview a local makeup artist here in Adelaide who is showcasing his amazing work! He is such a humble, kind person with so much talent! I got to ask him a few questions which included; how he found interest in makeup artistry, which part of the industry does he hope to get in into, and what can people expect at his showcase.
Thank you Chris! xoxo
Creative Makeup Artistry By Chris
My love for makeup first started while watching RuPauls drag race, it was the way people could transform themselves so easily and temporarily become anyone/anything they wanted. I first started buying cheaper drug store makeup and applying it in secret because I didn’t think many people would accept it. Little did I know I would receive an amazing amount of support from friends and family, and after a year of study become a fully qualified Makeup Artist.
The possibilities are endless for a makeup artist, and I think that’s why I love it so much! But I'm hoping to end up doing more runway/photography so I can add my little twists of weirdness into the makeups and really show my creative side.
For my runway show at RAW MERGE I’m hoping to bring a lot of creative and androgynous aspects to the makeup. Something you wouldn’t really see a lot. I've been paired with an amazing fashion designer named Harley Dutschke and he's creating some really cool and interesting pieces for the show. You can purchase tickets to support me and other local artists up until the 13th of October but the event starts on the 16th.
