Syracuse Commercial Makeup Artist -Behind the Scenes in Ithaca NY

When people find out I'm a makeup artist, they instantly think of beauty and glamour. While bridal makeup in Syracuse NY and the surrounding areas of Upstate NY is a huge part of my job another part of  my job is commercial work.
A commercial makeup artist makes "talent", the people featured in video and print ads, look like polished versions of themselves. Nothing fancy.

Here's some behind the scenes from a commercial shoot in Ithaca NY for a Senior living community. The talent consisted of residents at the property.

1st location of the morning.

Our talent had rescued her dog companion a couple  months prior to the shoot. She'd never been outside on grass before she was rescued!

My job ensures all talent is camera ready. She got a good brushing before her call time.

Farmer Andy. He's a retired farmer but heads the garden project on  the property.

Dancing in the gazebo. The woman is 83 yrs old and competes internationally dancing! I  loved when she said she competes in much higher heels than these!
