Hey there! I am Cathryn Brewer, owner of Gypsy Lane Make-up Artistry, in the Calgary area. I have been working doing make-up on and off for the last 15 years. I have done photo shoots, film, theatre, and fashion show make-up, as well as hair and wardrobe styling. If you are looking for someone who can visualize a concept quickly, with a lot of attention to detail and run with it, I am the one for you! If you want to do a shoot, or need an extra professional, please feel free to contact me.
I am a Make-up Artist who has over 16 years of experience in the fashion, film and theatre industries. I received diplomas from Marvel College for: Esthetics; Make-up Artistry; and Nail Technology in 1996. I completed a diploma course for Make-up Artistry from Viva Cosmetics in 1997. I learned professional make-up artistry for Special Effects and Film from Sean Bridle, of New Zealand. I also learned Theatre Make-up Effects from Red Deer College in the early 1990's. I then began my Apprenticeship for Hair Styling and Hair Colour with Gary Carmen of Carmen Hair Styling.
I have worked within the Gay Community, to teach Make-up Techniques for day-to-day wear, as well as for performance. I also have experience doing make-up for models and actors from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, which means I can produce looks that will cover any occasion and any need.
My recent accomplishments include having completed: Season Two - Episode Two of the Poker Girls web series; an international advertising campaign for Ammolite by Aurora; and competing in a makeup competition at the Allied Beauty Association show in Calgary. I am currently working on multiple independent film projects which will continue filming through this summer. Feel free to take a look at the weblinks to the two web based film pieces I have done.
I have years of experience, and a great eye for aesthetic and colour. I can bring a very artistic and creative view to whatever project you are doing. I do Make-up and Hair for: Film; TV; Weddings; and Fashion Shoots and Shows.
I also do Prosthetic Appliances, and Special Effects applications(Film, TV, Halloween, etc). These are specialty skills, please contact me for details on each specific application.
Please contact me for my rates and availability. I am willing to look at collaboration on other projects, but my portfolio is currently full.
