Last weekend was absolutely marvelous!! My sister, Lindy and I traveled down to Pasadena, California this last weekend for the International Makeup Artist Tradeshow (IMATS). Once we arrived in Pasadena, we met up with our friend Mallory and ventured to the Crown Brush blogging event. This event was put together specifically for beauty bloggers in preview of new goodies that are coming out soon as well as presentations from the infamous Nix Herrera and Autumn Scruggs. If you are not familiar with either Nix or Autumn, please read up on them!
Nix is a well known body painter whose been in the industry for over 14 years and has worked on Playmates, Jabbawockeez and Universal Studios just to name a few. He beautifully demonstrated how he personally uses Crown Brushes on his clients. He then went into his demonstration of how he blended his model into the background. It was a pleasure hearing him speak about his techniques, brush choices and having him relate that to every day make up. Seeing the finished result of blending his model into the background was amazing.
Autumn is a makeup artist who has worked close with American Idol and X-factor and also on lots of sets of television shows. She thoroughly detailed how she uses her Crown Brushes on her clients and how great quality they are. It was a pleasure to hear that she reaches for Crown brushes when she is on set with her clients. She spoke on a lot of knowledge I already knew and some amazing facts that I didn’t know. Overall it was very empowering to hear a woman make up artist speak and give great insight and hope to future upcoming make up artists like myself. I look forward to future Crown Brush events and all that they have to offer!
