I met up with Damian from Minor Moguls and the two female leads for a little make-up practice to figure out which make-up styles we are going to do for the characters.
I won’t tell you what we decided (you’ll have to wait and see), I just wanted to say how nice it was to have a quick practice and to meet some of the crew before we actually start. At least this way we got to have a bit of a chat and get to know a little of what each person thinks about their characters and how they expect them to look, etc.
I think I went well prepared, with face charts that I had made specifically for each character, a load of tear sheets from magazines and some images on my laptop to give ideas and inspiration. There are a few things that I want to pick up before we actually start shooting (should begin next month) but I’m happy with what I currently have. I think I have a nice range of products and from here on in its a case of buying various types of products (creams, liquids, water-based, etc) so that I have options in case people react badly to certain ingredients. I want to make sure that I have a small range of natural products too, such as Korres products, for those discerning customers. Maybe some vegan friendly stuff too, just in case, as Vancouverites do seem to be animal lovers in general. Speaking of which, I don’t know if you know this but ELF (eyeslipsface) are vegan friendly! I emailed them to check and all their makeup is vegan friendly, it’s only some of their brushes and tools that may not be (check before you buy if it’s an issue for you).
Really looking forward to this next project, especially since it will be my first feature film
