The Syracuse City Ballet asked me to be the makeup artist for their Swan Lake ad campaign. I was thrilled to accept! I love getting to do creative work as well as traditional beauty work!
After getting some inspiration photos from their team I got to work testing out looks and sketching out what products I would use,
I wore my Alex and Ani bracelett that day, Swans are special to my family. We've taken my daughter Gigi, now 8 years old, to the Manlius Swan Pond since she was an baby. It's a tradition she loves.
The look included products from MAC Cosmetics, Face Atelier, MakeUpForEver, and Whip Hand Cosmetics
It's always a pleasure working with Alice from Alice G. Patterson Photography! She has such a wonderful eye!
I love seeing peoples face when they I tell them that both the White Swan and the Black Swan are the same model! This shows the power makeup has in creating a character.
