His interest in makeup, however, came years

"I watched my mother in the bathroom as

That inspiration led him to the path he's on
"I admire the fact how you
are able to recreate the appear-
ance of someone. How the
smallest amount of color can
make the pupil appear different;
how lining the eye makes it pop.
"Adding false lashes changes a person 50
percent," Hill says. "It just shocks me how peo-
ple feel once I do my job as a makeup artist. It's

homecoming or sorts

returns to Dallas for a
showing of some of
his latest work (which

only event at The
Brick. Best of all, a
portion of the pro-

night will benefit Re-

have to buy him a drink.
