Eny Whitehead's Journey

Master Session from 31/03 -02/04/2018 in Berlin

Eny Whitehead has spent almost fifteen years transforming her imaginations, inspirations and passions into vivid artistry. One of Beauty and Fashion’s most remarkable trailblazers, she’s worked with the likes of Vogue, Chanel, Dior and Tilda Swinton, creating three-dimensional, flawless and frankly breathtaking looks for some of the world’s most important catwalks, photoshoots and editorials.

Day One

Eyes & Skin

Day One sees Eny take her students on a journey of discovery that will uncover the secrets of flawless skin. “Very few people master the art of working with skin, but the fact is that without luminous skin you can never have a flawless look.” Eny is famous in the industry for creating glowing, almost transparent skin which, when caught on camera, translates perfectly into a breathtaking look. “It’s very important for my students to learn how to work in three dimensions, because when the camera is flashing everything changes.” During the first day, Eny Whitehead explains and demonstrates the most important aspects of working on shading and highlight control that will travel beautifully into the lens.

But that’s not all: They say the eyes are the windows of the soul, and Eny takes this message to the heart. “Smokey eyes are a cornerstone of my work, and I want to teach my students how to work creatively with all different shapes of eyes.” Attendees of this first day will leave with the knowledge of how to improvise - depending on the model - with both creamy and powdery eyeshadows, in order to craft eyes that pierce into the very core of the viewer.

Day Two

Colour & Texture

The modern artist of make-up, Eny Whitehead combines vivid and often unusual colours and textures in her looks all the time. “I spent my childhood in Brazil, and so colours were always part of my life.” says Eny. “That’s why nature has always been a great source of inspiration for me in terms of shapes, forms and colours: especially in birds.” Colour is all about making a statement, that’s why Day Two will teach students all about creating the most memorable looks.

The deep green of snake skin, the dark, ominous blue of the ocean deep, and pure, unforgiving black. Or take the powdery richness of gold, and the passionate fire of a saturated red. “If it’s not wildlife, then it’s contemporary artists.” explains Eny, with inspiration in her eyes. “Look at Rothko! He’s got smokey saturation in his colours and huge shapes that you never forget. Now imagine that on pale skin. It’s rare that we get the chance to work with such strongly contrasting colours in commercial jobs.” Eny aims to challenge the status quo, and help create a new breed of students who make strong colours and textures a key part of their repertoire.

Day Three

The Latest Trends

Eny Whitehead has been working on shows for over a decade, witnessing the newest and most game-changing looks first hand. Day Three will show Eny harnessing her expertise in trend forecasting, explaining what’s to come in Paris next year, and how to be the first make-up artist to capture the look flawlessly.

“They’ll be training their eye, and that’s something that many people have trouble with. It’s so important, if you want to be successful, to not miss the little details or the similarities between looks in the past that might be at the core of looks in the future. If you want to be one step ahead of the game, it’s crucial that you can create looks that are one step ahead of the game.”

Students will use the skills they’ve learned in Day One and Day Two to recreate some this year’s strongest looks, and learn how to adapt them from the catwalk to editorial, using colour and three dimensional shading. “People will be able to update their techniques, see how we work on set, and become independent in their own work. They will be able to predict what’s to come, capture the look themselves and translate to all mediums.” The Journey will take these lucky few make-up artists into the future of Beauty.
