Movie Magic Comes to LiHigh School

Earlier today, Alisha Cartty, a Vermont native and professional makeup artist for films, visited the school to tell our students all about the life and career of a makeup artist.

After enthralling the students with explanations of how both gross and beautiful makeup creations are brought to life, Alisha gave a demonstration of her art form, creating burn blisters on one of our middle school student’s hand. Luckily, Tooti’s mom attended the talk as well, otherwise there’d be some real explaining to do.

Here are some picture highlighting her visit.

Thanks so much, Alisha, for introducing our students to the world of movie magic!
