FROM BEAUTY QUEEN TO SCREAM QUEEN:
HOW MAKEUP, HAIR, & WARDROBE MAKE THE PART
With Halloween coming up, it’s a good time to start thinking about hair, makeup and costumes.
But for filmmakers, it’s ALWAYS a good time to think about hair, makeup, and costumes. They play
a vital role in character creation.
At this month’s MCA meeting, we’ll have a panel of some of St. Louis’ finest hair, makeup and wardrobe artists. We’re still getting confirmation from our panelists, but, so far, our confirmed lineup
— Catherine Wilke, who has costuming, makeup, and hair credits in several major feature films that were
shot in St. Louis, including “The Lucky Ones,” “”Showdown at Area 51,” “The Black Hole,” “Saving Shiloh,”
and “The Big Brass Ring.”
— Carmen Loera, who has done makeup for such local films as “Love Stalker” and “Grandmother’s
Murderers Club”. She began her career in Los Angeles, where she was mentored by famed makeup artist,
Don Cash (“Planet of the Apes,” “All the President’s Men,” “Charlie’s Angels“). Besides films, Carmen
has also done makeup for television commercials, runway fashion shows, and stage makeup for
— Rommie Martinez, a hair stylist and makeup artist with 20 years experience, who works in television
and film. Her credits include the 2016 film, “The Layover,” shot partially in St. Louis this year, with William H. Macy
and Kate Upton.
— Nakita Smith is a owns the Loop Luxe and does hair and makeup, primarily for photo shoots and fashion shows.
— Theresa Doggett, who has done costuming for many theater groups in St. Louis.
— Moderating the panel will be current MCA-I Chapter president, Natalie R. Toney, a licensed cosmetologist,
turned artist, writer, and filmmaker. Her experience includes print, film, TV, and video, as well as hair, hair
replacement, and wigs. She is a former salon owner, former salon manager, and former educator for the American Cancer
Society’s Look Good, Feel Better program.
Whether you’re an actor, model, producer, director, or an aspiring hair, makeup, or wardrobe artist, there
will be something for you to learn at this meeting.
What’s more, we have a brand new location that we’ve never been to before: the studios of
The St. Louis Photo Authority, owned by St. Louis photographer, Edward Crim. The studio is on the
east end of The Loop. The address is 858 Hodiamont Avenue, which is the street on east side of the
Delmar Metrolink Station. FREE PARKING is available in the studio’s private parking lot. As usual,
we’ll have complimentary pizza, sodas, and bottled water.
So, if you’re just looking for some ideas for a Halloween costume … or you’re looking for ideas for
your next film, photo, event, or video project — you’ll want to come to this meeting.
