A few weeks ago, we caught up with Darla Edin at IMATS Vancouver. The VFS alumni, and Face Off Season 8 winner, was set to do a two-hour demonstration at the school's makeup booth. As she began her work on her model/boyfriend (what a great sport!), we couldn’t help but wonder what Darla was like as a student in the program. Was she always this focused, calm, detailed, and efficient? Thankfully, we didn’t have to wonder for very long. Stan Edmonds, Head of the Makeup for Film + Television department, was eager to share some Darla memories with us and even some of his favourite looks from her time as a competitor on Face Off.
You didn’t think we were going to keep Darla’s makeup demonstration all to ourselves, did you? Check out her incredible work in the time lapse video below:
Pretty cool, huh?
We also want to congratulate rock star makeup alumni Amelie Soucy and Katie Kinney. Amelie won 1st place and Katie secured 2nd place in the Battle of the Brushes competition in Character/Prosthetics!
We had a wonderful time at IMATS and hope those who participated did too. Thanks to Stan for his beautiful words and all the best to Darla, Amelie, and Katie!
