Life as a Makeup Artist – a moment of panic!

Today I worked on a shoot with a couple of research Dr.’s that study the brain. It was so cool to uh, well, pick their brains! =) They talked about the things that cause the brain to age. They also talked about ways to keep it young–which included lots of nutrients in the diet & exercise. They said it was interesting that as better nutrition was added to case study’s diets, the skin cleared up and people lost weight as well. Not surprising, but very fun to hear it from the these research scientists. It’s crazy to me how as we become so advanced, the things we really need most are the most very basic of all!

So for today, just a couple of crazy moments

I set my GPS to the address I was given. Then when it announced I had arrived, I pulled into the parking lot of the only building around. They were under construction, so I parked a ways away and lugged my case and bags and directors chair all the way, down 2 full flights of stairs. When I got to the lobby, I called the production manager, who said he’d be right out. Well, he wasn’t, and I started to wonder. I asked the receptionist and learned I was at the wrong place. Ugh. So needless to say, I packed back up and out and loaded back up and continued on til I found the right place. I was grateful for a good morning workout! Luckily the talent and gaffer had the same problem, so all was well, yay.

I almost had a panic moment as yesterday I sent my kit off to Boston for a shoot next week, so I grabbed what I needed for today’s shoot and ran off, not realizing I forgot to grab hair products! Gulp. Luckily I had a few small products in my set bag, so WHEW, it all worked out.

Never a dull moment, that’s for sure!
