COLLABORATION WITH HORIZON AIR
Horizon Air, sister airline of Alaska Airlines, contacted Art of Makeup seeking makeup and hair services for a corporate photo shoot production to showcase new employee uniforms for marketing and internal use. It was a paid shoot, as well as a great experience and pictures to feature in their portfolios! Recent Art of Makeup graduates Micki Willis and Supreet Prehar were selected and provided expert and professional makeup and hair services on a variety of employees, such as pilots, flight attendants, customer service agents, and ground and support personnel. The shoot was throughout a massive airport hangar, including interior shots of a brand new plane to the fleet. Art of Makeup was there to witness and experience the behind the scenes action. Thanks to everyone at Horizon who offered this wonderful opportunity! At the end of the shoot the Horizon supervisor was so impressed with the excellent services that Art of Makeup was invited to recruit graduates for future productions. An ongoing partnership with a great Northwest brand! #HorizonAir #Alaska #Airlines #PDX #makeup #hairstyling #corporatephotoshoot #puttinggraduatestowork
