We’ve been built on loyalty to industry artists. We partnered with E.I. School of Professional Makeup and Todd McIntosh for the same reasons. A master class was held at the Musician's Institute Theater on Thursday August 3, 2017 at 11am.  We began supporting E.I.’s Industry Insider Series a few months ago. This is where we come in as guest speakers to inspire and share stepping-stones for anyone interested in hearing what a veteran in the community had to say.

Todd McIntosh has been supporting Poise Makeup Professional for over 6 years and we value his time, expertise and passion for artistry and education.

Three models were on stage simultaneously; Todd took us from the 20’s, to 40’s to 60’s. His vast knowledge of Period Makeup gave us all a look into the past, which helped us see the current evolution of makeup today and how the past has shaped and continues to alter the future.

We often hear successful people say “Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Pick a friend, a colleague, a family member, someone who is worth emulating." Todd is one of those people for us. We hope that those of you who came to the event felt the same way.
