I found this fab video from London makeup artist, Lee Pycroft, where she discusses how to put your portfolio together for all aspiring makeup artists. There is still an incredible dearth of information out there for makeup artists to get the background on the business, and Lee is graciously filling that gap with her new Youtube series.
I assisted Lee in London some years ago now, and not only is she a great makeup artist, she is a lovely person as well. Her client list reads like a who’s who of celebrities and prestige titles, from the pages of Harpers and Tatler to beauties like Diane Kruger, Elle McPherson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts. Check out her book! It’s gorgeous.
I hope Lee does more videos as it’s really useful to have truly in-demand, talented and cool makeup artists out there on the internet, as well as all the makeup lovers and general cosmetics aficianados who can be found on YouTube.
