Suzanna Forrister-Beer, Make-Upps
Suzanna Forrister-Beer’s beautiful work from last year’s event is featured on this year’s tickets and we’re delighted to welcome her back to demonstrate European Body Art products on the Neill’s Materials stand.
Suzanna’s makeup and body art graced the red carpet and stage at Vienna’s Life Ball this year, for the world’s largest celebrity charity AIDS awareness event under the uber-creative direction of Austrian makeup artist Birgit Mörtl. She was also part of Einat Dan’s team for New York Fashion Week at Grand Central Station, and Victoria Gugenheim’s team at IMATS London 2017 for Make-up Artist Magazine.
Suzanna’s work has won multiple award and been published extensively, including in Vogue Italia, Faceon, Warpaint, Professional Beauty, Bizarre, Vintage Life, dooho, Photoshoot, Pinstripe & Kustom magazines, and more recently on a variety of global book covers with Neostock.
