Last weekend was quite an adventure as I attended the 2013 Inaugural Professional Makeup Artist Conference (PMAC). SOOO many creative sightings: Body Art, Haute Couture, Special FX and Fantasy. Believe me… I TRIED to capture ALL of it. 🙂
Created by legendary celebrity makeup professional, visionary and founder, Gwynnis Mosby who is responsible for almost two decades of professional makeup expertise for top-selling GRAMMY & BILLBOARD-charting musicians such as TLC, Usher, Faith Evans, Toni Braxton, Monica, Tupac, and A-List celebrities like Bill Cosby, Perri “Pebbles” Reid, the PMAC show encompassed all facets of the trade and hosted multiple vendors supplying a wide variety of cutting edge, exclusive makeup supplies and products.
Reggie Wells (Oprah, Iman, Beyonce) received a Legendary Award along with eight other noted makeup artists (MUAs): D’Andre Michael (Celebrity MUA), Patrice G. Coleman (Celebrity MUA), Toby Sells and Roy Wooley (Special FX MUAs), Cheryl Thomas (fmr Head MUA for Walt Disney), Natalie Spencer (Celebrity MUA), Linda Dupree (Celebrity Hair and MUA), and Yvonne Eagle (Celebrity MUA).
The red carpet was hosted by Nyssa Green (5x Emmy winning makeup artist), and celebrity guests included Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George (SWV), Juanita Bynum, Eshe and DJ Razadon (Arrested Development), Brandi (Blaque), Dionne Farris, and a slew of celebrity makeup artists that represent TV Shows and Major Motion Pictures.
“Professional Makeup Artist Conference will lay a solid foundation designed to build unity within Atlanta’s makeup community. As Atlanta’s Film and Television industry grows exponentially, we want not only to expose the vast amount of talent that is holding down the foundation of the Georgia entertainment industry, but to teach, mentor, and expand newer artists on a higher level towards global thinking.’
