Make-up Artist and beauty consultant Julie Begin has worked with the best in fashion to create her inspiring portfolio. She has worked with the houses of Galliano, Balenciaga, and Marc Jacobs as well as industry favorite photographers including Ellen Von Unwerth and Mick Rock, but the thing that stood out most to me was her involvement in the creative process of Cirque du Soleil’s OVO.
She contributed her unbridled imagination to the creation of the 50 insect-inspired characters that comprise the show. Julie Bégin notes: “This uncommon experience has not only enriched my creative approach to the art of makeup, most notably through the use of techniques borrowed from the visual arts, but it has also created an enormous potential for developing my work.”
That sounds like every make-up artist dream job, and a platform for hyper creativity.
