Meet Zoe Karlis, one of Melbourne’s own Hair and Make-Up Artists. Having worked as an editorial makeup artist for some time now, along with working on set for The Real Housewives of Melbourne, Zoe is taking the beauty world by a storm!
We were lucky enough to have Zoe complete a live demo, followed by a Q & A with our Makeup students. One student got the chance to model for the day as Zoe’s canvas and the rest watched and learned some unique skills and techniques.
We had the chance to ask Zoe about her top tips for aspiring makeup artists and what she thinks is the next trend:
TIP 1: WORK HARD (NOTICE A TREND?)
‘It’s not easy, it’s a lot of work, but once you get through that, its the best industry to be in’
Yes- this means early mornings packing your kit for a bridal client or long days of back to back models in a fashion shoot. It is so important to work hard in order to not only grow as an artist, but to also grow your clientele.
TIP 2: GET EXCITED BY NEW CHALLENGES
‘It’s so much fun- there’s something new and challenging all the time but it’s so exciting!’
Zoe, we couldn’t have said it better! Never fear the new, rather, see it as an exciting opportunity! Sure, doing winged eyeliner on a hooded eye may not be the easiest thing ever, but if you embrace challenges and get more excited to learn new things, you are destined to grow as an artist.
MAKEUP TREND OF 2018: BLUE EYESHADOW
That’s right- a glossy, blue eyeshadow could be making a comeback! It even made an appearance on the Oscars 2018 red carpet, worn by the wonderful Lupita Nyong’o.
