Hem From Thailand - A QUIET STORM OF CREATIVITY

A soft-spoken, gracious spirit, Hem speaks loudly with his body painting brushes.

To celebrate MAKE UP FOR EVER’s 30 Years Anniversary, a Pro Makeup Artist Contest was launched. 7 winners won a spectacular Body Painting week at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy in Paris. The winners are a creative and infinitely interesting motley crew.

Hem’s winning character

To enter the contest, Hem says his inspiration was “a queen”. When pressed, he confesses that it was the idea of a regal, beautiful queen rather than one specific queen in particular.

One of three Pro winners of the Makeup Artist contest hailing from Thailand, Hem has been working as a professional makeup artist for 8 years – he started really young. Working on everything from shows and shoots all the way through to weddings – brides want to look amazing on their wedding day! – Hem loves that fact that his job description is “making women more beautiful”.

What did he learn & love?

He has done a little bit of body painting before but not enough to count as experience. What becomes really evident as he works on his model each afternoon, though, is that Hem has studied the Fine Arts before – his work is as creative as it is well executed and he couldn’t pull it off if he didn’t already have some art training under his belt. His favorite part of the training week so far? Using a living, breathing body as his canvas. His paintings no longer two-dimensional, they have, literally and figuratively, come to life.

This trip marks Hem’s first time in Paris.  His French may only consist of a few phrases – ‘bonjour’, ‘merci’, and the more intricate ‘ça va bien, merci!’ – but he is working those phrases like mad. Part of the Sephora Champs Elysees expedition with fellow winners Mai and Pear, he too loaded up on more product that he could fit into his suitcase. At least they’ll all be in the same boat when it comes time to catch their flight home to Bangkok!
