In Issue #126, The Education Issue, of Make-Up Artist magazine, we got nostalgic for the days of signing yearbooks and asked teachers from Make-up Designory and Cinema Makeup School to interview alumni who have gone on to career success. Then we let the former students turn the tables. How has the industry changed since both began? What advice do they give to potential students?
In this online extended content, we bring you the actual footage of those interviews.
In this third installment of Reunions, Sabrina Wilson–whose credits include Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, X-men: Apocalypse and Straight Outta Compton–sits down with former make-up teacher form Cinema Makeup School, Lee Joyner. Joyner’s own credits include Kiss Kiss bang Bang, Star trek Beyond and Godzilla.
Part 1: Lee Joyner and Sabrina Wilson discuss how they got started in the biz.
Part 2: What’s Cinema Makeup School like?
Part 3: The road to make-up school, Sabrina’s inspiration to get there, and what it takes to succeed.
Part 4: Advice to incoming students, etiquette, how social media is changing the professional landscape—and what Sabrina has learned from her industry.
