I had an amazing chat with Tricia Mitchell – an international model and TV host. She is down to earth and kind. It was great meeting her at the New York Motion Event last year.

My interview with Tricia below:

How long have you been a model?

I have been a fashion model for over ten years. I was discovered in Barbados at a young age and it kind of took off from there.

I love talking to people and being myself, and I have always had an interest in journalism. My show is about to go into production so mums the word right now.

What is your favourite place to eat?

Byblos Restaurant in Toronto, you can’t beat the Lamb.

I know you hosted events, are you going to be hosting events in the near future?

I hope so, it’s a lot of fun putting projects together.

Where do you like to travel for vacation?

I love going to Asia, totally fascinated by it. I also love Italy, Mexico and St.Barth.

What is your lifestyle like?

That depends on what I am doing. I am quite social, love going out, and at the same time, nothing beats my onsie, chilling and watching movies.

I know your schedule is tight and how do you manage to get things going?

Good question, I just do what I have to do. I try my best to make a schedule and stick to it.

Johnny Salib’s Taste In Being An Artist

  
Johnny Salib is an award winning actor, composer and theatre creator. He is also an artistic director for Sisyphean Productions known as a theatre company and runs a company called Queerdeer Media. Johnny appeared in some films/television roles and stage performance as well but very much into theatre production & music. I had the pleasure to interview Johnny Salib about his taste of music and being a true artist.

Carolyn: When did you first found your passion in being an artist?

JS: When I was younger I was really interested in writing and creating. I enjoyed manipulating words and creating pieces that would evoke emotions, whether it be for myself or for an audience. I started singing when I was around 9, writing music when I was around 13, and writing plays when I was around 20. So each step of my artistry was inspired at different times.

Carolyn: Can you describe how manipulate words are being used?

JS: Manipulating words to me would be making sure that sentences had a certain flow to them that’s smooth. More specifically to music. You have to fit a certain amount of syllables to a line and need to make sure that if you rhyme lyrics that the rhymes make sense and aren’t rhymes just for the sake of rhyming if that makes sense. I think manipulation is also using the right words. Some words are much more effective at conveying certain thoughts and you have to have to be very specific to make sure you’re giving off the right message with your work. For example, saying someone is unhappy versus distraught. They mean completely different things, but are often used as synonyms.

Carolyn: Amazing! I know you are multi-talented artist so which talents do you enjoy doing? IE: Singing, directing etc?

JS: Good question. I ask myself that every day. I’m fascinated with most art forms and have tried to dabble with as many as I can. I’d say the most common forms I use are music composition (incorporating voice, instrumentation and sound design) and theatre creation (including playwriting, directing and acting). I used to draw and paint a lot when I was younger though, but that sort of subsided when I went to college.

Carolyn: So you have some props for stage? 

JS: I don’t normally design props because I go about theatre in a simplistic manner, using as little as possible to allow the audiences imagination to do the work. Sometimes if a piece is bigger I hire on a designer to help me with that work.

Carolyn: Oh I understand. I was just reading your bio about your work, you must like Harry Potter and you got to play as Harry Potter. What was that like?
  

JS: Funny enough, at the time I never read a single Harry Potter book. I also have only seen the last two movies, so it’s really funny I was put into that role. Regardless, it was really interesting to me. I enjoyed the experience playing Harry Potter, especially because the story was a staple to so many around me. It was also exciting to me to dive into such a well known character without knowing anything and discovering his issues on my own without the influence of pop culture, media or my surroundings.

Carolyn: Can you tell me about best scene you ever played? How do you feel about that?

JS: Given the fact that it was a farce musical, I’d have to say the introduction of characters was the best I played. It’s hard to capture an audience’s attention and when doing this farce specifically comedic timing and character authenticity was important. I think I landed the character strongly, making sure to keep his serious characteristics while remaining goofy and comedic.

Carolyn: Absolutely! Have you ever played on television or film?

JS: For short films, I commonly get casted as serious characters who are dealing with abuse or breakups, I’ve done a few stunt heavy-non speaking roles and a number of LGBT related films where I’m either gay or bisexual. More recently I’ve started doing comedy in short films as well, apparently I can be funny? As for TV Operas, CBC used to have a night-time segment that featured operas such as Benjamin Britten’s “Noye’s Fluude” which I was part of.

Carolyn: Wow. Do you like doing stunts?

JS: I love doing stunts! I actually would love to do more. As soon as I have the time, I’m going to go back to school to get higher certifications for them!

Carolyn: Is it like doing stunts like Fear Factor show? Or are there any certain kind of stunt you would like doing?

JS: I personally like more of the “combat” stunts. ie. being punched and kicked. I really love getting the crap kicked out of me.

Carolyn: Interesting. I know you are a singer, what are your favourite lyrics?

JS: Favourite lyrics that aren’t mine: “Waking up is knowing who you really are.” – Amy Lee of Evanescence. Favourite lyrics of mine: “It’s not that I love you, it’s that I want to be loved by someone like you.”

Carolyn: What would you want people to know about you if interested in becoming an artist?

JS: I’d definitely encourage artists to make their own path, specifically if you are a creator. Don’t wait for someone to hand you a job, make the job. I’ve been independent for years and love it. Yes, there is a higher risk, especially financially, but it’s worth it. You have all the control, you make your schedules, and you get to choose who you work with.
 

 Carolyn: That is a phenomenal advice for others and I would like to
thank you for your time to have an interview with me.

bright Makeup Colours in Spring 2015

Makeup trends for 2015 – great for bright clothing. It can go with formal wear with any kind but the most important is to ensure you are being matched properly with fashion and everything. As a makeup artist myself, I look for the latest trend to share, to help women to create inquiring look! 

I found some bright makeup trend for 2015, designs are always changing for better and women are more eager to create their spring look. In the winter trends doesn’t come as often as we want and sometimes fall/winter trends are good but not much to choose from. If you choose colours carefully and they can go with almost everything in all seasons. It is obvious  I love bright colours in makeup best than dark colours 

   
If you would like me to post more, I’d be delighted to do that for you guys.

The Art Of Makeup Designs

There are some interesting makeup designs created by the artists. These designs amazes me in a good way and of course when required an artists would create designs on model’s face relating to similar events like fashion shows, and some applied to auditions to promote certain arts to fit in whatever industry they wish to get accredited. As you can recall there are some pictures online are promoted by the artists – who designed best art on the model’s face. I have seen some of the most fabulous design ever. If I could have the money to travel and interview those artists from all over the world. They do have the amazing talents that inspire me so much. If you want to have that kind of art as a makeup artist you would have to attend some makeup courses from a certain modelling agency that offer that art course or the community college. The cost can be very pricy but it is worth it at the end. You will appreciate your art when you create one!

This design is just glamorous plus if I could design like this I’d definitely get more practice.

In my experience in the past, I have had only applied makeup on models for mother/daughter fashion show – I find it very inspiring and challenging. I believe an artists can have as much amount of fun working with models as they can. As an makeup artist, I don’t even consider makeup as my job but as the most glamorous and interesting hobby I will ever have.
