    Hair, Makeup, & Special FX Artists Available For Hire

    Attention Production Industry: Hire a Makeup Artist

    Megan Garcia

    The Art of Makeup School is a great resource to find trained makeup artists who specialize in working on set for film, television, and commercial productions.  In addition to hair and makeup application skills from straight beauty and grooming to special fx and prosthetics, these graduates learn about set etiquette, how to break down a script and keep continuity, set touch-ups, and professional hair and makeup supplies for application and on set. The school job board provides opportunities to get graduates working.

    Savannah Somerville

    Here are 2 full-time working makeup artists that both graduated from the same class in December 2017.

    In just 2 short years from graduating The Art of Makeup School, Savannah Somerville has worked on over a dozen short films, a web series, a full length feature film, a corporate shoot, a Nike commercial, theatre productions, and this week will be starting her 2nd feature film as head of the makeup department. With beauty and special fx makeup training under her belt, she is also finishing cosmetology school, so she will be licensed to cut hair on set soon. This native Oregonian has Los Angeles in mind for her future, so Oregon productions will have to catch her while they can! You can see her work at Savannah Somerville.

    Megan Garcia obtained her cosmetology license in Arizona before even graduating from high school, but

    like most cosmetologists, wasn’t satisfied with the makeup training she received.  After finding The Art of Makeup School, Megan picked up and moved to Portland to start her new life in what she really wanted to do; hair and makeup on film, television, and theatre productions.  Never stepping

    away from her true goal and with hair, beauty & special fx training now, in the short period after graduating makeup school, Megan has been hired to do several films, web series, commercials, and theater productions.  She has already accrued enough credits and joined IATSE Local Union 488 which is a huge accomplishment in itself.  You can see Megan’s work at Megan Garcia
