Modern Makeup Styles Male Model for Paint Night in Mississauga

Modern Makeup styles male model for special paint night event in Mississauga.

On the evening of Thursday April 5th, I helped Laura Bilotta, AM 640 Radio Host of Single in the City stage a new event she calls Wing Woman Paint Night. 

More specifically, I was hired to apply make-up to the subject’s face and upper body.  But in truth I also made his costume and styled his jewellery!

Laura’s event happened at The Port House restaurant on Lakeshore rd in Mississauga.  

As I arrived in the venue I saw her people setting up tables and chairs in the open square that would normally be called the dance floor.  

At six pm, I watched her crew lay down huge plastic drop sheets and break out a dozen easels and small white canvases for twelve painters.  

The diverse array of wing-women painters bonded together in solidarity in the shadow of a major stud muffin while receiving instruction on how to paint from Julia Chatterji of The Studio Paint Bar .

Makeup for Martin Dasko of Studenomics

The main attraction that evening, besides Laura, and Julia, was Martin Dasko.  This finance blogger pens a popular portal called Studenomics. A place for students which dispenses useful advice and motivational wisdoms.

At six thirty pm when Julia was clearing the dancefloor to set it up as a makeshift paint studio, I made my own make-up station was at the end of the main bar – nobody seemed to mind that I had three stools and Martin in a fourth.

The area behind these stools became a makeshift dressing room when Martin peeled off his shirt and pants and donned the leopard loincloth.  

Martin had pretty good skin so I didn’t do much to his face. I brightened up his under eye area and hid a bit of redness.

He had never had his makeup done before so he wasn’t sure what to expect. Luckily he trusted me and I didn’t make him look ridiculous.

Laura wanted me to oil Martin’s chest but instead I applied a little bit of extra shadow and highlight to showcase his muscles. 

Martin’s costume came with some assembly required. Modern Makeup styles for a lot of the photo shoots you see our makeup in. 

Originally the loin cloth was more of a Fred Flintstone style smock, but Laura nixed the shoulder strap ; she felt it was important to keep his chest exposed. 

I got Martin’s costume assembled in the middle of the restaurant.

As a favour to Laura, a swanky Toronto jewelry store sent along about four thousand dollars worth of silver bling for Martin to wear. There was a gorgeous necklace, two bracelets, and a thick silver skull ring which was a little too large.

The staff at The Port House restaurant were fantastic, and Brian the manager is outstanding in his attention to detail. 

When Laura decided that Martin needed something hold on to, Brian quickly found us a broom handle which became his spear.

Laura Bilotta’s Wing Woman Collective

It was Laura’s idea to gather together a crew of confident ladies and discuss the tenements of being a Wing Woman. What responsibilities does a wing woman have? What role does this person play when they are helping another woman versus helping a man? 

The Single in the City – Wing Woman Code of Ethics was unveiled as the ladies painted a handsome hero. A list of rules for single ladies that all must abide by!

The disciples learned basic art skills they can practice forever. Five of the top painters got to take home a free frame for their work. 

Every attendee got to keep her art plus a generous gift bag filled with beauty bar coupons and cosmetic samples. It was quite a night!

MISS TEENAGE CANADA 2016

I’m sure you all are aware that Modern Makeup was a proud sponsor of the national teen model competition, Miss Teenage Canada 2016.

I’m here to give you a bit of a behind the scenes of all the hard work and perfection that our artists displayed throughout the pageant.

As a result of a full day of activities the team was up bright and early on the first day to meet at the Mississauga Holiday Inn Dixon Road on the top floor to do some set up and wait for our contestants to file through.

Personally, I have never seen so many makeup palettes, hair extensions and so many bottles of hairspray in one place before.

However, the room was filled with so much energy, talent and creativity that regardless of the fact that we had 54 models who needed to get their hair and makeup done before 4 o’clock, we managed to make it happen with only a short pizza break.

Below are some snippets of the days progress.

Also, these girls ranged form ages 14 to 18 and came from all over their country with their own unique story in their own beautiful way, and competed for the Miss Teenage Canada title.

It was mind blowing to see the confidence that was portrayed by each young lady and the way they attempted to build each other up during an intense time like this.

Especially relevant is that the final day of the pageant took place at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto.

It was another whirlwind of cosmetic craziness, but a rewarding night indeed.

In conclusion these teen models go through a full day of hair and makeup and rehearsals before the big show even starts!

Finally, the winner of the 2016 Miss Teenage Canada Pageant was teen model Samantha Pierre.

It was a hectic few days but the team managed to pull it off with patience and grace.

Furthermore, I know this event would have not been possible without the wonderful artists who were part of #teammodernmakeup and I would like to take a moment to recognize some of our incredible artists!
