A Ladies of Distinction Workshop Collaborators: Ms. Feit and Chevon Morris
Research, from both historical and current references, is a crucial component to the successful makeup artist. The research is typically reflected and organized in a “look book” or “morgue” and is a personal collection of objects and tear sheets pulled from various sources to keep the makeup artist inspired and up-to-date.
Objects found and references pulled will reflect the work of admired photographers, artists, and makeup artists. Sources from which to draw inspiration should include stills from film, and images from books, magazines, and the internet. The makeup artist may also wish to add personal drawings, paintings, sculptures, and photographs, from which to draw makeup artistry inspiration.
The Morgue, as it’s called, is also used as a tool for the makeup artist and crew, (or bride), to brainstorm, come up with fresh ideas, and to ensure that all parties are in unison on the agreed-upon “look.” This collaboration is critical to a successful event and/or shoot.
It is first recommended that the makeup artist obtain a binder and plastic insert sheets, or other mounting pages, to periodically add and delete images. The makeup artist should obtain dividers with tabs separating the sheets into various categories. Any images of faces should clearly show the makeup application, necessitating that the face should comprise at least three-fourths of the page.
