MJ Studios at Smashbox Pro Artist Workshop

Michelle recently traveled to Culver City, Los Angeles to attend the Smashbox Pro Artist Workshop. 28 makeup professionals attended the workshop; 26 from the United States and 2 from Canada. Those in attendance had the opportunity to participate in a professional photo shoot held at the Studios. Models were provided for the artists and 2 looks were created through demo.

The first look was a “perfect canvas” where artists were asked to create a beautiful, perfect canvas enhancing natural features only. The aim was to bring out the bone structure of the entire face. T
he second look was a “fashion magazine look”. Artists were instructed to create sultry eyes using 2 sets of lashes, darkening the shadow and liners to bring out the eye structure without sinking the eye and using the appropriate colours to do so. Check out the slideshow below to see MJ's take on both looks!

Out of the 28 participants, Alex Factor, who represents the professional artists of Smashbox studios, recognized MJ’s work as being exceptional. Alex contacted Michelle asking her if he could use the images on the Alex Factor Facebook page. Michelle is honoured to have her work acknowledged by Alex and has returned with a wealth of knowledge to pass on to her clients.
