Hey! I'm actually moving to Michigan next year (hubby going to U of M for Phd)...Anywho, I started a profile on Model Mayhem and I have also added local photographers and model on my facebook as well as contacted local agencies to provide makeup for "test' shoots. As soon as I got a few pictures I liked, I created a website and business cards and have been hustlin ever since. It has been working and I actually worked on my first music video last week. Good Luck and have fun!!!

Go to http://www.michiganfilmoffice.org/. Get in touch with the production companies and ask if you can be added to their list of makeup artists.
Another idea is to call the local modeling agencies and tell them you would like to test with some of their models. You can also ask for their photographer listings and call the photographers directly to ask if they would be interested in testing.
