Makeup Artist for the Menorah House 100 year Anniversary Syracuse, NY

Commercial work can be such a great experience. You get to meet all different types of people. Both in the production team and with the clients. 
While being on duty as the makeup artist for a bridal client I received an phone message and email asking for my availability the following Tuesday for a production shoot. Like I said, these can be great for networking and new experiences. Schenectady Media would be running the show that day.
So replied yes and packed my kit for a 10 hour day of shooting. I also contracted Christina to assist me for the day to show her the ropes of production makeup.
The client was the Menorah House of Central New York. A retirement community pretty close to where I live and a place I have driven by on many occasion, but never really gave much thought to.
When I arrived I quickly saw that this was an amazing place to live in the golden years!
It's barely sunrise and only 40 degrees out but Mary Ellen is a pro out there in front of the camera.
Lipstick gets reapplied.... a lot

Coolest room on the property. A stained glass wall of windows.
Outdoor dining area that is beautiful!
 I loved working with Jim at Schenectady Media, Kurt from Level 86, Jancy Ball, Scott from TV Crew NY, Matt at Event Tek, and Gen Andrews.
