What’s up LM loves! Hope your day is beautiful and busy. I’m getting caught up from a hetic weekend but I want to make sure I share with you all the creativity and craziness from Orlando Premiere Beauty show. I’m so thankful that I was able to talk with major players in our industry that are setting trends and changing lives. I had my own Aha moment when I spoke with 2 amazing MUA’s Chell Love & James Vincent ! Chell Love is the soft spoken and incredibly talented makeup artist behind the looks that were created for Ted Gibson’s main stage performance. From the moment the models walked the stage I was in awe of the dramatic and colorful makeup looks. I had to find out more about the person behind the art so I got to Chell backstage and talked to her about stepping out of routines and being inspired.
Here’s the interview:
Safia Michelle- How do you get in a zone in order to get to the place to create?
Chell-I”m always in a zone, I like to meet with the designers to know what they’re coming up with.
Safia Michelle- Being a visionary how do you break out of routines in order to see new ideas and
concepts come to life?
Chell- I get a vision based on the concept. I never like to plagiarize, I like to put my own spin on things. If I get stuck in a place I stop myself and walk away or I start working on another area, to get my motors running again then I’ll go back to what I was working on before. I never like to push it threw, never force it threw! Step away for awhile and come back to it!
Safia Michelle What’s it like to work with Ted Gibson?
Chell- He inspired me so much, so encouraging, and caring. I understand why his staff love working for him so much. I saw his compassion for people as well as his staff and it brought tears to my eyes. One minute I was taking a picture with him last year and this year I’m keying his show. God is good!
Isn’t she awesome?!!
To wrap the Premiere Orlando Beauty Show, I could not leave without speaking with industry favorite Makeup Artist, James Vincent. I met James a few years ago when I attended the Makeup Show NYC. James is an incredible artist who is full of the truth and he’s funny as heck! If you go to one of his classes or workshops be ready to learn and laugh! He’s a lot of fun, but also serious when it comes to education and getting your business right when working freelance in this industry.
P.S …In case you didn’t know the highly anticipated Makeup Show Orlando, is coming November 4 & 5 2012 and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to learn, inspire and connect.
