The Hair & Makeup Artist Network held an industry mixer May 28 in Los Angeles. This networking opportunity paired make-up artists and hairstylists with professionals from the film, TV, music and photography industries. Make-Up Artist magazine swung by for a visit.

Make-up artist Levi Vieira, a first-time attendee, said the mixer “… gives us the opportunity to really get to know people, not only in a professional level but on a personal level as well.”

Hair and make-up artists from all over the greater Los Angeles area attended the mixer. Several guests expressed excitement about the possibility of receiving health benefits through a pending HMAN group plan.

The event allowed people from different parts of the entertainment industry to meet, including photographer Jeff Carrillo (left) and hair and make-up artist Mariah Nicole. “There’s definitely work out there,” Nicole said. “You just have to find it.”
