What it Takes to be a Fashion Week Makeup Artist


Fashion Week may have wrapped a month ago, but we're still in decompression mode here at Beautylish. Amidst the chaos of designers, artists, and stylists backstage, makeup artist James Vincent always seems to keep his cool, and it's why we love him so much. Working with The Makeup Show and Inglot Cosmetics, James keyed 12 shows this season (with over 300 offers in his inbox), and isn't stopping anytime soon. From the balance of art and commerce to the real reason he keeps getting job offers, the artist shares his secrets to Fashion Week beauty success above. Young artists better listen up—if there's anything you should take away from Fall/Winter 2012, it's this wisdom.
