The Exquisite Work of Rebecca Allen

The Exquisite Work of Rebecca Allen
Makeup artists are interesting if you take the time to watch them while they are working. Their faces give themselves away – not because their expressions are saying that they would rather be somewhere else or would prefer to be doing something else, but just the opposite. Their faces are the picture of total concentration. They are almost expressionless in their focus and that is because (it appears to us anyway) that they are completely focused on the face they are putting makeup on.

Rebecca Allen is a makeup artist who works out of Brisbane, Australia, and travels the world to work on movies. She is an exemplary artist and in almost every photograph we have seen of her, captured while she works, she shows the same targeted concentration in each shot. It’s as though she shuts out the world around her, sizes up her canvas (the actor or model’s face) and sets about re-making the person’s image into the one that’s is in her mind’s eye. And each time the actor or model comes out more beautiful or more like the character they are portraying than they ever imagined they could be.

If you watch closely you will see that Rebecca is the epitome of someone who is at the top of her game. She has been doing makeup, hair styling and special effects makeup for over ten years and has established herself in the eyes of producers, actors and directors as a professional who can be counted on to get the job done creatively and within budget. Both of those concepts are important in the film and TV industry because it is a creative business, no doubt, but it is also extremely cost-conscious. If an artist can fulfill both of those things on a movie set then she is considered an asset to the production company.

Rebecca is an asset no matter what movie or TV show she is working on. She recently did prosthetic makeup for the film Aquaman and before that she worked on Thor, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, The Inbetweeners, Alien Covenant, Guardians of the Tomb, Legend of the Sun and Moon, and she is about to start work on the upcoming live-action film Dora The Explorer. Rebecca is a citizen of the world and she does a lot of traveling to work on films. It must be nice to do what you love to do and be able to make people more beautiful, one person at a time.
