A few moments with MUA Jonah Levy Part 1

April 13, 2011

This past weekend the first ever IMATS New York was held at 82 Mercer in Soho.  The TEMPTU PRO team was there to experience this momentous occasion first hand.  We were happy to welcome the makeup and special effects expertise of Jonah Levy both at the TEMPTU PRO booth, and on the Open Forum Stage.  After his amazing Zombieland demo, we took a few moments to sit Jonah down and ask him a few questions about his inspirations, favorite projects, and what he thought about IMATS’s New York debut.

Tips from the Pros

Kristina is a celebrity makeup artist working in Los Angeles behind the scenes on television, film, photoshoots and red carpet events.

 Read on for her inaugural blog… 

Kristina Duff & Lauren G

Working on So You Think You Can Dance, Season 7, was both an honor and a pleasure!!!

Under the department head Amy Strozzi, I was able to put my talents to use on some pretty amazing faces!

TEMPTU PRO S/B is the only foundation I have in my kit. I generally airbrush on all my gigs, but sometimes I play around with other techniques. 

Have you ever just brushed on the S/B foundation??? Well that’s what I did here, for Lauren G of the All Star Team. I applied her makeup 6 hours prior to when this photo was taken…

If you ever find yourself in a pinch without a compressor or perhaps working a gig where they prefer you to use traditional makeup application techniques (or if the director specifically asks you to use something really sheer….brushing on the S/B formula will give you a BEAUTIFUL result! You can lightly apply for sheer or add layers for a full, yet skin like coverage.

I started with prepping her skin….toner, eye cream, moisturizer…and PRIMER (don’t forget your TEMPTU PRO S/B Primer)!! Then I went to town with S/B foundation #6 on a palette and a brush in my hand.

VIOLA!!!! Enjoy this new tip and have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!!!!
