Gray’s Anatomy by Lisa Berczel at IMATS Pasadena January 2013. The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show is the make-up world’s biggest gathering. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Make-up pros from fashion and film provide education and demonstrations at IMATS, and new products often debut there. IMATS also features a make-up museum and an Afterglow party, where trade-show guests can socialize. Make-Up Artist magazine publisher Michael Key held the first IMATS in August 1997 in Los Angeles. It allowed artists to customize what they wanted to see and it offered a diverse mix of products, demonstrations and education from industry leaders.
Professional airbrush and bodypaint artist Lisa Berczel has always been fascinated with medical illustrations, so this is a bit of a not to Gray’s Anatomy. No prosthetics – only a bit of medical grade paper tape to close the eye and an brow blocking. Lisa’s body paint can be viewed in such diverse places as mass market books and magazine covers, international ad campaigns, videos, Reality TV, runway, and live event acrobats. She has been instructing airbrush and bodypaint for several years. From private classes and small seminars up to 3 and 5 day comprehensive workshops, her focus is on it all: technique, equipment and product education, material and product safety.
