Hair and Body Painting by Jessica Rhodes Body painting

Today’s High Definition cameras and new trends in film making have changed the role of professional make up artists both on stage and screen.  Lighting techniques and CGI have increased the audiences’ thirst to be transported to fantasy worlds, gone by eras and creation of the impossible.

As a versatile MUA, I have an eye for improvisation and I work quickly on my feet. I can recreate a designer’s vision or another MUA’s work, on film locations or in a studio.  I am able to combine skills from all make up and hair areas, to work on one artist entirely as well as working as part of a team.  I am passionate about the industry which shows through in my projects from start to finish.

CONTINUITY A professional MUA must ensure continuity at all times, usually taking full responsibility. With film locations often at opposite ends of the world and shoots taken over months, MUAs will take great steps to ensure every hair curl or scar is exactly the same as the last film shoot , making the production flow seamlessly on screen.

COMFORT  As MUA sessions can often last for hours at a time, it is paramount that the artist is made to feel as comfortable as possible before, during and after the process. As a professional MUA, I will take all possible measures to ensure a good working environment for the artist including room temperature and comfort of awkward seating positions.

Where hairpiece or prosthetic work is involved I will constantly check the artist during the shoot to ensure the make up is in tact, and that they are as comfortable as possible.
