The European Hair & Make-up Artist 2017 award went to:
Leendert van Nimwegen.
Citation: ‘In Brimstone, Leendert van Nimwegen, with make-up and hair, helps the characters and their development throughout the film, from play- and colourful, to sober and sinister, the good, the bad, the young, the old. It is a perfect combination of hair and make-up to describe characters, so beautifully done, and making them real.’
