Jen Hunter who opened a makeup studio in Rainford last Summer was invited back out to New York for the third time to be part of the backstage team at Fashion Week, where international fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press and the general public.
We caught up with Jen, who told us more ”This was my third time in New York for Fashion Week and it was brilliant.”
“I worked as part of some great makeup teams providing makeup for the shows put on by designer’s such as John Paul Ataker, Mikelsen, Samantha Leibowitz, Fesvedy and Frances Jerard throughout the week”
“Working on runway shows is only a small part of my job but it’s one of my favourite. I love the intensity of the backstage area and the makeup looks that I’m able to create.”
She told us a bit about her background “I won Makeup Artist of the Year at the Professional Beauty awards in London in 2014.”
“I have worked as a makeup artist for 10 years across the North West and nationally and now run my own makeup studio in Rainford called Spectrum Makeup”
“I run accredited training courses teaching everyone from beginners through to people wanting to work as professionals in the industry”
“My students have the opportunity to come out on photoshoots and catwalk shows to gain experience.”
Jen will be running accredited training courses this month at Spectrum in Rainford.
