I worked as a Makeup Artist today. I did makeup and hair, plus created a dress out of a sheet! Our first photo shoot in the new studio went very nicely. I did hair and makeup for two models, creating a total of three looks. It was fun to meet them and we had a very relaxed and productive time together. I enjoyed the young women and Charles and I work well together so it was fun. I ended up giving out skin care advice and makeup tips and that made me feel a little motherly, plus they really liked the looks I gave them. That's cool by me.
I now have all the gear to do mineral makeup in pretty much any color, including a custom match of an individual’s skin tone in a makeup that is actually good for the skin. I have an airbrush, and that will allow me to do airbrush makeup techniques in addition, opening up another whole world of possibility. (Once I buy the airbrush colors.) I am looking forward to seeing how all the pieces come together for this project.
I have lots of costume ideas and lots of cool stuff to work with after all my shopping. There are a few things coming yet, then I can hopefully get this show on the road. I just need some quality time in the studio, and it appears that I’ll get it in the form of a big snow storm forecasted this weekend. I love snow, but I live in Virginia… and this does not feel like a Virginia winter. I’m growing sick of being cooped up inside. I want to feel the sun on my skin and go for a jog on the golf course on a warm day. I guess it’s all just a matter of time. But isn’t it always?
