Key Hair and Make-up Artist!

I’ve been given the opportunity to be the Key Hair and Make-up artist for a charities advert to be shown at their red carpet events and such!

The advert features a young girl, so make-up is going to be very natural, with some shimmer for the like for a “dream-like” sequence. The producer has a fair idea about how she wants the hair and make-up to look, but we’re going to discuss it further the next time we meet up. I know I said in my last post that I didn’t think I was ready to be  a Key, but there isn’t a hoard of actors to work on so I’ll be fine, and it’s such a great opportunity! I’ve been adding bits and pieces to my kit but I’m going to go on a major shopping spree this week for the items on my list that I haven’t bought yet. There’s a great shop that a few pro MUA’s have mentioned here in Vancouver called Holly North. I need to find out if I need to be registered with them to buy from them, but I’m going to try there for some things as they apparently have a decent range of products and brands aimed at people within the entertainment industries.

I was also contacted recently by a guy I messaged about helping out on their next low budget, independent movie.  We’re meeting up this week (in a public place for safety reasons of course!). It’s all go right now. Long may it continue! :-)

By the way, does anyone know of any good, professional reel/portfolio sites that may be of interest?
