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.|
|crew working hard in the sun to make sure Andy looks good on camera|
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!
