Antonia Spicer’s Corporate Make-up Team for Unilever's Christmas Party
My client, Unilever hired my services for a corporate Futuristic themed staff party
Follow my ticks and tips for applying the make-up on a large group - working your magic to fit around tight time-frames. How to ensure you are comfortably ready in time for a fancy dress, total look party or performance!
SCI-FI FUTURISTIC MAKEOVERS
QUICK, SIMPLE, FLATTERING AND EFFECTIVE CHEEK DECORATIONS
This theme creates a genre of make-up ideas - creative angles endless! - a speculative fictious subject like this one opens up one’s imaginative minds. Its therefore very easy to get carried away with the brush and lose track of time!
FUTURISTIC MAKE-UP TECHNIQUES
Each member of staff was transformed in 10 minutes with a stylised, fun, flattering make-up on their cheeks.
We offered a range of styles to fit with the theme and re-created guest’s desired characters using water-based paints.
Techniques applied included swirl line work, dots and textures, eyeliners, various features such as metallic planet shapes.
Our make-up kits & colour pallets consisted of silver metallic paints, shimmers for creating various highlighting effects, glitter, jewells and a range of stencils for producing quick, slick and effective results.
HOW GUEST'S QUEUES ARE MANAGED WHILST WAITING FOR THEIR MAKE-UP
To ensure each office members received equal attention and not one went short of the facial fantsy facial design, there was a list of names and each guest was provided a time slot which they had to stick to.
THE IMPORTANCE OF A MAKE-UP DESIGNER AND THE USE OF TEMPLATES
As we had a vast amount of office staff to get through in a short space of time - I supplied various SCI FI designs in advance that the guests could choose their looks from. This way artists had a clear indication before approaching us what they desired and artists were prepared - for time was precious and this way we could sail through the application within the time-frame and achieve fantastic results - We kept to time and the guests were very happy with the effect - a WIN WIN SITUATION....
Here is what they had to say about the make-up team after the event….
I wanted to send a HUGE thank you to you and your team of girls last Thursday.
Everyone including Peter were really impressed with how you dealt with the queues.
