"My name is DevAnn and I am a professional makeup artist. Although Halloween pumps through my veins each and every day of the year, my art branches out so much further than just spooky looks. My creations range from body paint and sfx, to more editorial, avant-garde and “out-of-the-box”. I love to dabble in many different art styles and to push myself creatively, but ultimately my favorite thing to do is to be able to express “DevAnn” in my truest form. I’d say my art can be very “deep”, truly holding pieces of my heart and soul within them. I am not afraid to let raw emotion come through or to color outside the lines. My craft is my therapy, allowing me to work through things, express my feelings and live in the present moment. It has been a true gift to me. My artistry has allowed me to express who I am, grow as a human and just be unapologetically myself. I began playing with makeup 13 years ago, but I started my journey of branching out and learning who I am as an artist over the last 5 years or so. I’ve grown to not fear trying new things with my creations, and constantly push myself. Makeup artistry goes so far beyond a hobby for me. it is a core piece of who I am and I will continue to hold this craft of mine very dear to me for the rest of my life."
Thank you to all the artists who participated in our 6th Annual 31 Days of Mehron Halloween contest.
