CANNES AND COUTURE- Blanche Macdonald #Makeup graduate Karissa and her kit are back, and they have fabulous tales to tell! Karissa Makowecki recalls that a true highlight of her time spent in class was listening to the incredible on-set stories of her instructors. These tales gilded her thirst for learning and challenge; she wanted to create an adventurous narrative of her own. Fast-forward to today, as Karissa is only just returning from a whirlwind of posh exploits: #photoshoots on the #FrenchRiviera, backstage of #ParisCouture #FashionWeek with Designer #MelanyRowe, the #CannesAnnualShoppingFestival, and brushing up #editorials at #BuckinghamPalace (to name a few)!

“It was absolutely amazing, the #fashion, the couture, the architecture, and of course the makeup!...It didn’t sink in until the night of her collection release in
#Paris that I would now have my own stories to tell like the instructors at Blanche had told us! #BlancheMacdonald was by far the best educational decision I could have made. I miss it soooo much! the best part is that its like the school never left me; I still keep in contact with some of my teachers, and if I have any questions they are still eager to help! Its like I never left really.”

Another brilliant story for our Blanche family album!

Devilishly Good- They don’t call Blanche Macdonald Global #Makeup student Kait Davison ‘Madam Monster’ for nothing! Just check out this devastatingly great #demon look she created for her #SpecialFX final! Inspiration, to a re-imagined concept, to impeccable execution- we so love watching the processes of our City Square artists!

“My inspiration came from a painting by #BROM titled 'Hell'; it depicts a truly vicious demon in the midst of battle and I was automatically inspired to create my own, only #3D. If I've learned anything it's patience and hard work. You prep as much as you can beforehand and while applying the makeup keep a level head, and do what you can. My time at Blanche has been extremely beneficial and I'm so pleased to be living my dream making creatures!”

The City Square halls have been teeming with #horror and #gore so stay tuned! We have so many more fantastic things coming your way soon

Another wonderful feature, another inspiring story from our Blanche Macdonald #FashionDesign graduates, by Marilyn R. Wilson! Li Liu discusses the ornate designs and saturated hues of her #Buddhist temple-inspired graduate collection:

"I bring 5000 years of #Chinese #art and #cultural history into my designs. I think there is a lot of #historical content that can be adapted and blended into very forward-looking #fashion that can attract a #global clientele." - Li Liu

Heather is a fellow Blanche grad who is now Western Regional Pro and National Pro Educator of cult kit-favourite +MAKE UP FOR EVER OFFICIAL and popped in to talk colour and texture as a part of #MUFE’s #MIXOLOGY series.
