Alana’s confidence and ability to understand composition, shape, light, colour, emotion and expression allows her to create distinctive, flawless looks using makeup that have been specifically designed for the light and environment in which it is to be showcased.
Makeup in the film arena represents a vision. The final look is a collaboration between the director, the makeup artist, the production designer, the cinematographer and the actor. To Alana, this collaboration is key to creating edgy looks outside the comfort zone, evoking emotion in the beholder.
