In today’s glamour industry, there is one single factor that is of great importance to the photographer and model alike – the expert application of makeup.
This necessary component to a successful shoot is the forte of a talented and skillfull make-up artist I had the opportunity to interview upon her return from Tokyo, Japan – Hollywood Glamour and Film MUA, Kerry Kaoru!
Jett Ray: Tell me about your background – how did you get started as a MUA?Glam MUA – Kerry Kaoru: I am a Japanese native who came to the US hoping to become a MUA. I think I have a unique style. I do from beauty / glamour makeup to special effects, including drag and monsters and have knowledge in prosthetic and latex applications.I am involved in entertainment business in many ways and am also fluently bilingual. I started doing makeup in high school when I was involved with high school theaters.
Jett: Where did you receive your training?
Kerry: I studied makeup mostly on my own. I also studied under some professionals and went to a makeup school called ‘Joe Blasco’ in Hollywood.
Jett: What or Who inspires you?
Kerry: People with good energy. I can get my artistic inspiration from anything though.
Jett: What project are you most proud of?
