*****I'm willing to travel as long as transportation is paid for. I currently have a very busy schedule, so I am only accepting paid gigs, unless discussed otherwise.
Hey, my name is Lovina Yavari, I'm a proffesional SPFX make-up artist. I enjoy all aspects of makeup from theatre, fashion, to gorey b-movies. My work is heavily influenced by scifi, anime, and comic book characters. I'm also quite capable of doing simple elegant makeup when needed, So don't shy away just because i have "FX" attached to my name!
I'd love to network with photographers, models, and aspiring film makers to gain more experience and to strengthen my portfolio and resume.
I'm well trained in: Fashion, Film & Television Make-up, Theatre and Prosthetics
Paula Fleet (Hairstyling)
Dino Dilio (Fashion MU)
Stephen Lynch (Film&Television MU)
Neil Morrill (Prosthetics)
Kelly McCallum (Theatre MU)
Tony Chappell (Creature Design)
AVAILABILITY: I have a flexible schedule, it usually depends on how much of an advance notice i get.
FEES: depends on assignment, I usually include travel and kit rental fees
CANCELLATIONS: I will notify you at least a week in advance, and try to provide a replacement.
**ATTENTION MODELS: Please arrive to the shoot with a clean face and it would be a bonus if you had your own masacara available! I use baby wipes to remove make-up, but if you'd rather use something else then please bring your own preferred product. Thank you!
Hope to hear from you :)
