Beauty of a re­sult

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS - Jill Burgess

MAN­DURAH make-up artist Jen­nifer El­lis has been named the win­ner in three cat­e­gories of the 2018 In­ter­na­tional Beauty In­dus­try Awards.

Ms El­lis was cho­sen from hun­dreds of en­trants from 15 dif­fer­ent coun­tries.

She will re­ceive three hand-crafted stat­uettes de­signed by the same peo­ple who make the Golden Globes, Em­mys, MTV and Peo­ple’s Choice Awards.

Ms El­lis said she was hes­i­tant to en­ter, know­ing the com­pe­ti­tion was go­ing to be re­ally tough.

“But my life motto is if you can’t get over your fear, then do it scared,’’ she said. “And I’m so glad I did. “What an hon­our to be recog­nised for my work.’’

She said the com­pe­ti­tion was not a pop­u­lar­ity con­test but a panel of in­dus­try ex­perts judg­ing each artist’s work.

Ms El­lis was se­lected for her cre­ative make-up skills, which she at­trib­uted to her un­der­stand­ing of how to use science and math­e­mat­ics to ap­ply make-up.

“When you un­der­stand the science of make-up, you can no­tice­ably en­hance some­one’s fea­tures,’’ she said.

“Af­ter study­ing and work­ing on faces for years, I can gen­uinely say that ev­ery per­son has fea­tures that are beau­ti­ful.

“I just make it more ob­vi­ous for them to see it for them­selves.”

Ms El­lis has spent years hon­ing her craft. She has worked on fashion run­way events, landed pub­li­ca­tion in beauty and fashion mag­a­zines and worked on stage pro­duc­tions.
