January 2013 had me at the Pasadena Convention Center for IMATS – International Makeup Artist Trade Show. I was eager to see new and favorite makeup products and splurge due to the deep professional discounts available. I shopped avidly for makeup and found something even more exciting.
Glenn Hetrick a judge from SyFy channel’s show FaceOff was at a vendor booth! I just had to get his autograph since I loved to watch the show seeing the Special Effects Makeup Artists compete each week for the winning look. He was nice enough to pose with me in a photo after I told him how much I loved his show and I got his autograph. Seriously cool moment!
Even more excitement was in store when I saw several contestants from various seasons of FaceOff working booths showing in person how to do special effects makeup. I can’t remember the names of the contestants but check out the redhead and the blonde makeup artists who were on Face Off.
IMATS is more than beauty and glamour makeup. My preference is for glamour makeup and those were the classes I attended but I admire the professionals who can come up with the creative special effects movie makeup like Glenn Hetrick and the contestants on FaceOff. It was amazing to see up close their skill at turning people into alien creatures.
