If you're in Florida this weekend, you might want to check out The Makeup Show Miami, a two-day event featuring all the makeup know-how you could imagine. I recently talked with lead makeup artist James Vincent, who created a beautiful face for the event. He has worked with celebrities including Liv Tyler and Jordin Sparks (pictured), he's created looks for designers such as Christopher Deane, and he even created his own makeup line, Pretty Pretty. (Also, he has some bad-ass tattoos.) Read on to find out about the weekend ahead and his unusual path to becoming a makeup artist.
What inspired you to create this makeup look for the show?
It was Miami's art-deco history and love for color and texture. And definitely the weather and the influence of so many different cultures on Miami. From the beginning of US history, Florida has always had a rich influence from Latin cultures, and I think Miami still has that today.
Who can wear the show's look?
Anybody! Everything that I do and everything we do at [event planner] The Powder Group is for all races, and it's important to me personally because so many of my clients are women of color. Regardless of your skin tone, you should be able to wear the look that you're seeing.
