In the wake of Professional Film and TV make up artists Daphne Goulter and Carly Lennon joining the Wantin Sizzle Reel production team we organized a day of hair and beauty trials to see whether the time allowance planned for the shoot days would be ample to achieve the defined character styling.
There was an immediate sense of staggering enormity associated to the amount of equipment and supplies that these ladies are required to possess in order to execute their job. It’s truly hard to fathom the volume of product that’s carted from one location to another.
I enjoyed watching Daphne and Carly unpack their gear in a manner that demonstrated that it had clearly become a fine tuned methodical process. The brushes were sprawled out to the front left, foundation shades stacked neatly behind. One by one the eye shadow pallets were opened and placed onto the portable table.
I may not be an expert in beauty product application but I could certainly feel the growing need to pick up a brush and start randomly applying colors to anyone who dared to stay still for long enough to let me. Initially I contained the urge but as the day passed I succumbed to straddling Eden (much to his horror) while I applied a few choice brush strokes to his forehead that I would like to think added to his look. On the side line Carly patiently observed completely amused.
Feeling sated by my contribution I let Carly continue her mastery while I snuck away to update my Star Now profile with my newly acquired skill as a make up artist.
