Confessions of Madonna’s makeup artist
“Working with Madonna is so exhilarating because she’s not afraid to take risks. How many people do you know who are truly open and susceptible to experimenting? It’s really gutsy to put yourself out there and allow yourself to go against the grain.”
This is Madonna’s make-up artist Gina Brooke talking to Hawaii’s newspaper The Advertiser about her work with the Queen of Pop.
“She’s been working with the star for three years, traveling with her to photo shoots for the covers of fashion magazines, working backstage at her concerts and creating her makeup for a wide range of public appearances all over the world” – the newsapers says. “Brooke, who was recently named artistic director of the Tokyo-based cosmetics company Shu Uemura, will bring some of the theatricality of her world to Honolulu when she leads a choreographed makeup show here on March 16 at Neiman Marcus.
Madonna, of course, is renowned for reinventing herself, and a key aspect of her reinventions is her makeup. Read more about it in the interview by Paula Rath on the Honolulu Advertiser by clicking here.
