One Fantastic Woman

My Camera ready face, since my first Not Just Jazz show in 2014 until now, including many of my photoshoots, has been the work of one fantastic woman.

This fantastic woman is a professional make-up artiste and trainer par excellence and what she does not know about colours, tones, hues, brushes and glues is not worth knowing at all.   She has made-up my dancers and me, and with each of us she works with our personality, preferences and complexions. I have absolutely no complaints. 

She tells me I have the skin and features that make it happen but I say it’s more than this.  She makes me look different. She makes me look great.  Her dexterous hands are precise with every stroke.  She is patient and calm even when I have to halt her work to handle a production enquiry.

Thank you Vanessa, for the wonderful work you have done for me. I, Millicent Stephenson Saxophonist, walk on stage feeling like a million pounds (not in a weight, I hasten to clarify – lol!) . I’ve learnt so much along long the way. You are one fantastic woman!

Looking forward to working with you again!
