Name: Gina Comminello
Salon: THE LOOK Hair Salon & Beauty Boutique
Finalist Category: Makeup Artist of The Year
Reason I became a Makeup Artist:
I wanted a way to help women love who they are and embrace their own unique beauty.
Best advice I ever received regarding my career as a Makeup Artistry:
Learn as much as you can about your clients’ wants and needs.
Best advice I would give to a new makeup artist starting out:
Learn to listen, use great brushes, pay attention to detail, give 100% - 100% of the time.
Funniest thing that ever happened to me as a makeup artist:
I was working for Dior at the time and flew to another city to host a cosmetic training on one of our new color launches. I was about to train the artist about our new loose face powder, when I opened the powder it exploded all over my face, lashes, hair and my clothes...I was truly covered with pearlized white loose powder. We all could not stop laughing, I ordered champagne for everyone in its honor as I quickly went to get cleaned up.
