Assignment: Stage make-up
A friend from MUD-school went on stage today, and she kindly offered to share her co-dancers with me as guinea pigs!
No actually the dancers didn’t mind at all, two of them even said they could get used to having their make-up done every day.
Which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside haha!
I really enjoy when someone feels good when i’m doing their make-up.
I can’t take credit for the idea though, that’s Steffie’s.
All I did was follow what I was told, like a well-behaved MUA. ;D
They went for a black and white pointy wolf-like eye, this was one of mine:
Good thinking of her too, the contrast came out really well on stage.
This was my kit for the day:
I used my MUD foundations and correctors, and their own face products.
Then for the eyes the Bourjois white/black countour pencil (not cruelty free), my Milani Liquif’eye in black, and those two shadows at the top left.
MAC’s Gesso and Carbon.
(Also not cruelty free, but i’m doing a project 10-pan to get all of these products out of the way!)
Can I have lamps like that pretty please?
Enter stage right!
Hmm I should really start using an actual camera instead of a phone, the theater is actually a gorgeous building on the inside.
Those lights remind me of molecules..
I could see the MUD-school from inside!
Well this oppurtunity actually made me pretty nervous already, because i’d never done actual eye make-up on anyone before.
Except for my mom once and that was a pretty sheer application.
This ehm… was NOT.
However TOMORROW the real excitement starts!!
Via the MUD website I scored a film noir – themed internship for a couple of Sundays.
These pictures will be graded for someone’s photography finals, so they HAVE to be good.
A MUD-teacher is coming to assist me.
(I get to wear an official MUA shirt… ICK!!)
Aren’t shirts the best?
Any crew shirt is cool.
So yes, I think the ball is starting to roll and i’m extremely nervous but open to it at the same time. ;D
Then after that training tomorrow i’m going back to the theater because they have another dance show.
Busy busyy.. but a LOT fun!!!
