Candy Land Comes to Life! Chad Collaborates Once Again with Artist Will Cotton


Cockaigne, A live performance conceived of, designed and directed by Will Cotton and curated by Stacy Engman for Performa 11 at Prince George Ballroom

I was very excited to once again work with dear friend Will Cotton www.willcotton.com, and collaborate on the makeup looks for this fabulous evening of art, music dance and festivity. I have created many makeup looks for his paintings and many are featured in his new book, Will Cotton: Paintings and Works on Paper.

Dancers from New York City Ballet were dressed in custom cotton candy creations and set against a back drop of Cotton Candy Clouds. The live-action piece was performed in two acts – ACT I: Whipped Cream Duet for Two Violins and ACT II: Cotton Candy.


For the piece, we created an ethereal makeup look with pops of bright pink (Lollipop Lip & Cheek Stain) on the cheeks, glistening silver-whites (Silver and White Shimmer Eye shadow mixed and applied with a wet brush all over the lid) and Pink Shimmer (Icing on the Cupcake Eye Shadow) as an accent paired with doe-eyed eyeliner (Aurora Crème Eye Definer). Lollipop was painted on the lips as a stain then a veil of Candy Cloud 9 Lip gloss (which tastes like Cotton Candy!) was layered over for a 3-D effect.

A signature Cotton Candy fragrance, “Whipped Cream” was created exclusively for the event by Pascal Gaurin for IFF.
