Since 2002 The New York Makeup Academy of Japan has brought students to visit me for their MasterClass. A series of unfortunate events led them not to come since Hurricane Sandy. However I welcomed four of their extremely talented student last month and had a fabulous time. It was great to have my faithful friends and clients come again and serve as models and Kenig Alcone provided us a great space. The students were very focused and talented. The two that I had considered weaker advanced by leaps and bounds and by the photoshoot the last day were almost ahead. Each artist had a very individual style.
For the photoshoot we had Almog doing the hair and the beautiful gowns were by the designer Jane Wilson Marquis. The makeup on Allison of Major models was done by Makeup artist Nao Minamoto.
