Guest Blogger Judy Demos her Spring Look for Cheeks

Posted on May 6th, 2010 - Written by: Amy Masini

Judy Edelman, Master Make-up Artist at Bellus Academy

I am Judy Edelman – Master Makeup Artist, Instructor, Medical Esthetician and your featured blogger this week. I have worked on major feature films and TV shows during my 25 years in the makeup and skincare industry.  My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, runways, and fashion shows. I have worked as a Nation Artist for Trish McEvoy Cosmetics, Shiseido Cosmetics, Estee Lauder and as the chief makeup Artist at Trump Towers. I teach the Make-Up Designory Program here at the Bellus Academy in Poway.  My class currently runs for 4 weeks, Monday through Friday.

For this spring season, I have chosen to do a Cherry Blossom Cheek make-up .  This Look will brighten every one and is the most current in the industry.  This look is very versatile and can be worn to work, school, or for a night out.  At the Bellus Academy I teach this look as well as runway, special effects, bridal, television, photography, airbrush and many more.  Check the website in the feature for more information on advanced Saturday classes offered for those already in the industry as well as those of you who would like a little taste of what it’s like.  Feel free to contact me at regarding classes and schedules through the schools website.


Judy xoxo


student testimonial

"I enrolled at Bellus Academy in 2009. I enrolled in the make-up course with Ms. Judy and the Esthetics Program with Miss Larissa and Miss Olga. Since day one the teachers and staff have been amazing. I could not have asked for more out of a school and teaching staff. I feel very fortunate and happy that this school is available and can accommodate such fantastic services."
