How to secure a career in makeup and bodyart, by Eva Rinaldi - 7th November 2010

As you have most likely heard, or even experienced, the makeup and bodyart business is one of the world's most competitive sub sectors of the larger entertainment, fashion and film industries.

For many young women, and an every growing amount of young men as well, a job or business enterprise in the often exciting and glamorous world of makeup is a dream come true.

With those facts covered at the beginning, I'm pleased to advise that dreams can and do often come true, for those who are willing to listen, learn and put in the hard work, assisted by just a tad of lady luck along the way. Positive attitude and embracing opportunities like work experience, and working with big name celebrities and brands, are also some key elements to turn the dream of working in makeup industry into a real life dream job. I know this is true, as I've been blessed to have my dream job and business for more than a decade, and if I can do it, you likely can too!

Another important consideration when pursuing a career in makeup and bodyart is your lifestyle choices and considerations. Whilst on the surface it can be seen as extremely glamorous and exciting, as is the case with many other careers in and around the entertainment and arts sector, there is usually a lot of hard work and long hours involved in order to be successful. It can also be a case of work hard, and countless invitations to celebrity parties and A-List events.

Firstly, focus on what you want in your life and career, and if you keep coming back to makeup themes, this is a good sign that you're on track. You will ideally be passionate about the industry, as some jobs and careers can be "too hard" to do if you're not. Makeup is one of those!

Next...get trained up. What I strongly recommend is that you do a short course by someone who has proven track record in the industry, give it all you have, and hopefully you will like it. This will give you a foundation to work upon. There's no point in enrolling for a makeup course that runs for 1 or 2 years, if you're not even sure its for you, plus you may even lose interest over the course duration, with little or no recourse to reclaim your financial investment. The traditional crawl - walk - run method is much smarter, lower risk, less stress and quite likely, more fun. Many of the world's leaders in various professions adopted the crawl - walk - run approach, and this enabled them to get by while chasing their dreams and aspirations, but at the same time, not getting in over their heads or putting all of their eggs in one basket.

From my career experience, ranging from student to teacher, and later, leading Australian makeup and bodyartist, more often than not, the step-by-step approach makes much more sense on many levels. As they say, I wish I knew 10 years ago, what I know now. But, success is often a case of trial and error, and I encourage others to embrace the experiences - both failures and successes, keep learning, and have fun. Fun, passion, work ethic and focus will help you achieve your personal and professional goals and aspirations.

A couple of very useful tips in deciding where you will receive your training include word of mouth / recommendation, testimonials, value for money and geographic location. My company, Human Statue Bodyart, currently teaches in 3 different locations in Sydney, with plans for expansion on the way. We're told that we offer a fantastic introduction course, and offer the right mix of hands on - practical, and theory. We approach things holistically, and one important aspect of our courses is that we provide numerous work experience opportunities on some great assignments, ranging from film, fashion and editorial, and perhaps you've even heard a thing of two about some of our current professional campaigns including but not limited to 'Let's Paint Oprah' and 'Avatars Invade Sydney Suburbs'.

Another important aspect is the need to use quality products. If you want to be the best, you need to associate with the best, and use the best materials. For makeup products and brushes we recommend MAC.

So, if you're after the right training, value for money, experience that actually means something, and of course fun, you've come to the right place.

I wish you well with your life and career goals and aspirations, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Local body paint artist turning dreams into reality, by Greg Tingle - 15th September 2010

Body painting and human statues are back in vogue according to world-renowned body painter, educator and social and community entrepreneur, Eva Rinaldi.

Rinaldi from Abbotsford, is taking on the world by storm, sharing her knowledge and passion for all.

Like many dynamic Australian business people she was quick to notice the pending arrival to our shores of Oprah Winfrey, and has bold, yet achievable plans to body paint Oprah and / or some of her audience and celebrity guests.

Australia's undisputed body painting goddess is riding a wave of positive momentum at the moment, fresh off a highly regarded photo shoot project with acclaimed photographer Roberto Duran. The impressive results of the local shoot 'La Catrina' will be available for public exhibition at the Pine Arts Australian Gallery from the 24th - 30th October.

The expo feature will include some of the areas most diverse cultural and Mexican entities, including models Elkatrina, Analise Greco, 4 (Strathfield), Lui Cantali, 5 (Five Dock), Victoria Gordetts, Arianna Starr and Phoenix (Sydney).

Gordetts said, 'Getting body painted feels like a second skin and a light massage. It feels good".

They will be all in good company with Rinaldi recently having also completed collaborations with Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Shannon Noll.

Rinaldi said "It's a really exciting time for all of us at the moment. We do a lot community work and nurturing young talent. Now, with a number of celebrated business entrepreneurs coming to Australia, we all think it's a wonderful chance to get everything to the next level and help out worthy causes. My 'wish list', which is actually more of a 'to do' list includes Oprah, Richard 'Virgin' Branson, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley (KISS), Blondie, Cher, John Trovolta and Russell Crowe. We have come up with a way for the celebrities to champion their favorites causes, so money raised will be put to good use. We think Oprah will see merit in this, and I'm certain a number of the range of celebrities will agree to be painted. A couple of them are friends, so I think they will be happy to do this for sure. We just hope Oprah will join the party'.

Some may be a little skeptical of Rinaldi's grand plans, however, based upon her almost decade of arts meets corporate work experience, the scales appear to be tipped in her favor. Just a couple of Human Statue BodyArts' bigger campaigns include World Vision, Tourism Australia, Sydney Body Art Bike Ride, and famous Sydney Opera Bar!

Rinaldi and her world class team believe in making a positive difference when possible, and they've been able to do plenty of this over the years. Now with the likes of Oprah, Branson and Blondie about to grace our shores once again, the timing couldn't be better.

To help create further buzz, awareness, and all important local employment opportunities, Rinaldi is now searching for an Oprah look-a-like to compliment the campaign. The model must be open to having African fruit, themes and Sydney icons painted on their body. In addition, there's some golden opportunities for children (3 - 5) who appear to be from African descent.

It's easy to see why Rinaldi and her team are so excited about Oprah and other celebrated entrepreneurs coming to Australia, and we think that there's a good chance more of her dreams will indeed become reality.

Press Release

Australia's Queen Of BodyPaint, MakeUp and Human Statues Invites Oprah And Other Dynamic Brave Business Leaders To Get Painted For Worthy Cause (And Kicks)

In a clever, sexy and artistic plan, Eva Rinaldi, considered by many to be Australia's queen of bodypaint, makeup and human statues, has kindly offered to bodypaint news media and entertainment queen bee of the world, Oprah Winfrey, now that she is to come "down under".

Not one to have her spirit and dreams deterred easily, the bodypainting goddess has also comprised a 'Wish List', which she sees more of a 'To Do' list, combining together her decade plus years in the industry and that of her in-house (and very good friend) Media Man, Greg Tingle.

The names on the list include rock gods KISS (starting with Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Ace Frehley), maturing and gorgeous, Cher (also linked to Gene), the queen of sass, Bessie Bardot, Alice Cooper, Blondie (Deborah Harry), Tony Abbott, Austin Tayshus, king of publicity stunts and big business Richard "Virgin" Branson, and even the Media Man himself - Greg Tingle (also known for his frolicking with goddesses of Australia's burlesque and after dark scene), and loud website network.

Before dismissing Eva's 'Wish List' and 'To Do' list, consider this.

Eva created her Human Statue BodyArt empire in the late 1990's, before there was a ready market and the bodypaint become in vogue, now tied into world famous events like the Sydney Body Art Bike Ride and World Naked Bike Ride.

Has worked with and collaborated with such as amazing talents such as Keith Richards Rolling stones, Lady Gaga, Roberto Duran and Katy Perry.

Has created works for such strong brands such as Coca-Cola, Eclipse, Australasian Gaming Expo, World Vision and Sydney Opera Bar!

Eva's prior media appearances include Channel Seven 'Today', ABC News, Inner West Courier, The Southern Courier, The Wentworth Courier, Where I Live, Cosmopolitan, Cleo and Media Man.

Created and operates one of the world's most popular body painting websites and Facebook groups

Testimonials from the whose who, including former Australian Prime Minster John Howard

So, Oprah, we think that your team would have noticed the dozens upon dozens of 'Eva Wants To Body Paint Oprah' Facebook fan comments by now, so the ball is in 'O's court.

Regardless of what gods and goddesses on Eva's list take up her complimentary offer, one can't dispute her enormous talent, generosity of heart and spirit, and ability to create positive buzz and stand out from the pack, be it at a children's charity event, high profile happening with a Prime Minister, or collaborating with Australia's leading photographers and entertainment icons.
