I’m still working on the Charlie’s Angels pilot and we have been doing night shoots. Basically that means we start our day at around 4pm and work until 7 am when the sun comes up. Even making an Angel look beautiful for her close up at four in the morning can be challenging!
I have a few tips that will help you look awake & refreshed, even if you’re not.
These tips are added to an already made up face.
Makeup can get dry & cakey looking as the day or night progresses which makes you look dull & tired. I really like a product called Seaplasma Moisturizer Spray from Focus 21. It’s oil & alcohol free. It contains NA-PCA which draws moisture from the air. I spray it on & press it into the skin (over makeup) with a sponge. It makes the makeup look like you just applied it. You can also use it on your face before applying your makeup & it’s great for your hair too.
They say that your eyes are the windows to your soul, so let’s talk about keeping those windows clear & bright looking. There’s a product called “Eye Bright” from Benefit. It’s a pink brightening pencil. You should apply it to the inner & outer corners of your eyes & blend.
Two great eye tips are to apply a white or nude toned eyeliner pencil to the lower water line or rim of the eye. Try Paula Dorf eye pencil in the color Enhancer.
You can also apply a white or creme toned powder eyeshadow to the center of the lid. A good option is Mac “Gesso”. Both make the eyes look larger & more open.
Have a great day or night. Get some rest if you can.
