Miss Selena, tell us a little about yourself
SEM: I was raised in a small town, outside of Pittsburgh Pa, but I never dreamed that I would grow up to be, working on major feature films, tv shows, stage, theater and in print.
My career of over 25 years has taken me all over the world and given me so many fantastic memories such as, being back stage in Celene Dion dressing room, doing her makeup for her stage show "A New Day" in Vegas, or on stage with "The Rolling Stones" rock band, assisting the head makeup artist for the Stones, while they were on tour in the USA or on the set of "The Pirates of the Caribbean and "The Hunger Games" 2, doing The Capital Makeup's, for Academy Award Winning Makeup Artist and Department Head "Ve Neill"
I started out doing makeup for family and friends then to various department stores as a Beauty Advisor for Estee Lauder (Resident Makeup Artist), Elizabeth Arden, Prescriptives, Gale Haymen, Flori Roberts, Adrien Arpel, then I moved on to print, runway, commercials, videos, television shows, opera, independent films and then to feature films
What projects are you currently working on?
SEM: Currently, I am working on the 3rd and 4th installments of "The Hunger Games" as a Makeup Artist. I am also the Department Head of 2nd Unit Makeup, this means that I have to make sure that all the "extras" (talent) have the correct look for the scenes that we are shooting that day
What does your studio look like?
SEM: Besides being a freelance makeup artist, I also have a makeup studio for doing custom blended makeup and powders, I also do brow design, lash extensions, and makeovers. This also allows me to practice new looks and brush up on my skills
What are your plans for 2014? Any interesting upcoming projects?
SEM: I plan to continue doing my freelance movie and TV work and to teach a series of Makeup Artistry classes, at Binders Performance Makeup. I also plan to publish my makeup and makeup career books out this year!
