About MeI'm a specialized airbrush artist, who after spending years in the circus world as a stilt walker and contortionist realized that I could bring my makeup skills outside of the strange and unusual world of performance and tweak it to embellish the world of fashion. I am trying to do more beauty/artistic and less theatrical/tribal that often gets asked of me, but nothing is beneath me or too advanced so please write me and we'll create something that is exactly what you are looking for.
I currently only do "my style" of airbrush which consists of a unique assortment of stencils and patterns that I use to add a bit (or a lot) of flare to a photoshoot, video, event, or whatever. While this is a very specific look, with planning and discussing what you are going for I can tweak it to be as glamour, theatrical, gothic, tribal, futuristic needed.
The makeup I use is completely human safe/tested and is actually make-up, not paint. If needed for the shoot I can even use a high strength version that will not wipe off easily in water. If there are any fears for sensitive skin I will gladly inform you what I use so we can rub some on the skin prior to the shoot to make sure that there is no reaction. None of my makeup when dry will rub off onto clothes and stain (at most flake off the body and just needs to be shaken off)
Currently I am more inclined to accept your job if its PAID for while we are all artists, I must make money on my craft (makeup isn't free sadly). If it's a project that I must get my hands on, or you are someone who I must get my paint on I will very likely consider a TFP or TFP+cost of paint. If you're serious and passionate about your gig, give it a go maybe I will be too. Please message me or email me for bookings, while I do appreciate comments, lets keep business between us ;).
I have made wonderful connections (some amazing models, designers, hair and makeup) as well so if you would like to set up a shoot but need other parts, Im sure we can fix you up
I will soon be learning foundations and "normal" airbrushing techniques, if this is something that would interest you, please inform me and I will go about this at a quicker pace.
Im open to working any sort of project (everything from painting patrons at a party to a runway event and beyond) so please message me on here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work out a rate and time that works for us both.
***If I friend you that means something about your profile intrigued me, chances are I will contact you (if I haven't already), this is my way of keep tracking of things I want on MM (I dont like lists, I'm not gonna promo you like that yet). So if you dont accept, unless I stumble upon your profile again, I will likely forget you and you disappear into the ether***
