ALUMNI IN THE HOUSE
It’s so amazing to watch our makeup students grow and create amazing makeup careers after school. Scarlett is such an incredible example of this.
Scarlett started her makeup journey with us as a student back in 2008, she then came back as an instructor for our Makeup Diploma and Advanced Makeup Diploma courses in 2017 and we have her back again today teaching our Special FX portion of our Makeup Artistry Honors Diploma.
Scarlett has focused on Special FX makeup for theatre and film. Her makeup career has spanned from recent hit shows that were filmed in Calgary and surrounding areas of Alberta, ‘The Last of Us’ and ‘Under the Banner of Heaven’ to theatre productions such as the ballet production Cinderella’ to photoshoot editorials and also specialty Special FX makeup workshops and training.
We asked Scarlett what her most challenging job to date has been and here's what she had to say:
"8 bald caps in one hour for the Cinderella production, which made me smile because here was a time that I found 1 in two hours a challenge!….8 in one hour!! What! Practice is everything clearly!
Check out Scarlett’s instagram, @angryskies her makeup work and skill is absolutely incredible! This talented lady was always one to show up, work hard and on those days when it was tough work even harder. Thank you Scarlett for always being such an inspiration!
