The Beauty Gurus I Admire…
Shu UemuraShu Uemura – This Japanese born Hollywood Legend has been a huge inspiration since I first started out in Make-Up. Considering back then there was no internet and you couldn’t just go and google someone. Everything I heard and learnt about this legend was through the brief training I received during my Beauty Consultant Days. From a Beautician working in Hollywood who was in the right place at the right time to Make-Up Legend. Mr Uemura I salute you.
Sam FineSam Fine – is exactly that ‘FINE’ and is probably the definitive name when it comes to make-up for African American Women. Changing the way women of colour were made up. Favoured by SuperModel Iman as well as a host of other A-Listers. I have been an avid admirer for over a decade. Finally darker skinned women were looking warm and golden rather than grey and chalky. The man looks like nothing short of a movie star himself and is probably one of the most forthcoming Artists on Social Media… He never tires of passing on his advice to clients and artists alike. Love his women of colour transformations.
The Fashion Scene owes this Guru a lot!!!
