Article: Haut Cosmetics Interview

To celebrate the release of my book, The Mercenary Makeup Artist, Haut Cosmetics posted a fantastic interview. We talk about the book, the beauty industry, and ermines! Here's a quick preview:

J:  What is the biggest makeup artist challenge for you (creating thick brows from sparse etc)?

K: I have almost a physical aversion to using makeup to make people look bad. Makeup artists are asked to do it on film sets all the time. There’s the tame, like making people look sickly for hospital scenes or giving them a bruise, but it’s the hard-core blood and guts stuff that gets me. Maybe I’ve watched too many rom-coms, but I like to imagine my makeup applications as a scene from a montage with peppy pop music. Applying a bullet wound just doesn’t work as well with an upbeat soundtrack.

After reading the book, Haut decided to offer a professional discount! Check out the details here.
