For those of you unaware of the Chicago designer CLEONS, here are links to my previous posts about him and the work we've done together:
CLEONS 'BALL' Fashion Show 2010
CLEONS ADS 2010
Chad Leon, the designer, is one of the HARDEST working designers that I've worked with so far. Every year he has more and more garments walking down the runway. Chad knows how to put on a productive, professional and entertaining show and he's an amazing man! Here are a few photos of the makeup I did for his latest, and last, fashion show in the historic DuSable Museum in Chicago, IL. I also learned that I have become increasingly faster year by year.
-The first year I worked for CLEONS in 2009, I was only able to do makeup for 2 models within 2 hours.
-The second show in 2010, I was able to do makeup for 3 models within 2 hours.
-This year, I did makeup for 3 male models and 4 female models within 2 hours. Speedy Samuels on the prowl!! :)
