Last Saturday I headed off to London with Tim for the United Makeup Artists Expo at the Business Design Centre, with a list of things I needed to buy, and a boyfriend for support. There were some amazing stands their full of makeup, and also some stands showcasing makeup artists. In the back there were also talks going on, but sadly I did not have time for these due to needing to be elsewhere in London by 6pm. I was able to get everything on my list (and more) on our target budget, and I even managed to pick up something I have been lusting after ever since completing my course!
These Rose Gold Zoeva brush sets have been in my sights for a long time, and when I found out I had a little left over in my budget on Saturday I just knew I had to pick them up! They are so soft, and beautiful, and I cannot wait to use them!
Then at 6pm I went to meet the parents of the Director of a short film I was selected to be the Hair and Makeup Artist for, we stayed the night in London then travelled all the way up to Sunderland. I was there a whole week doing the hair and makeup on several artists. It was a lot of hard work and was very tiring, but honestly so much fun!
The main setting of the short was the beautiful Allerton Castle we were there for 3 1/2 days, I mean just look how stunning it is. Although it was a nightmare 1h 40m drive from where we were staying, and doing that every morning and evening and working super hard was pretty difficult.
There were also beautiful costumes, and I couldn't resist trying on this bonnet in between takes, I think it really suits me to be honest!
We shot at many beautiful locations throughout the week and above are some of them. My particular favourite is the room in the top right of this picture. That is the drawing room in Allerton castle, and the walls are blue silk!
Everyone was amazing and we all had a great time, it was nice staying in the family home of the director, and her mum was amazing at looking after us all and even got us a cake.
Sunday I simply spent travelling home and catching up on sleep. I don't want to give too much away about the shoot and my time in Sunderland because I am planning a bigger post once I receive the photos from the Director.
