Working on a Short Film by Caley Soul

Melanie Crump Alumni 8 Comments

Caley studied on our Bridal Hair & Makeup course last year.  Here, she tells us of how she’s translated those skills she learnt to work on a short film.


Last weekend I had the opportunity to be involved in a short film for the 60 hour Colchester film challenge.

We had 60 hours to shoot and then edit down to 5 minutes of film. The location was a spooky old convent in the Cotswolds, which was a lot of fun and a very cool venue.

Day 1

natalia2 Here is Natalia, one of the actresses. Its an early start for us doing this glamorous fantasy look, and this make up to needs to last all day!

Just a few of the featured products that I used :

narsAIRMIST AIRBASE foundation, as it gives great coverage and a flawless airbrush effect; fantastic for film, photos and brides.  This stuff lasts all day & night!

SKIN CHEMISTS LONDON INSTANT DEFINITION PEN (like 8 hours sleep in a pen!)

Ye old faithful YSL TOUCHE ECLAT

For the glow… NARS HOT SAND ILLUMINATOR and NARS TRIBULATION HIGHLIGHT…loving these products right now!

Also, CHARLOTTE TILBURY FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW in the hollow of the cheekbones.

Day 2

sophoraSophora has the most amazing bone structure! We were going for a sultry floaty glam look. I used the CHARLOTTE TILBURY FILM STAR BRONZE again and HOURGLASS AMBIENT DIM FUSION blush, which is very finely milled, so really soft & illuminating but not sparkly. I love the finish of this product. I used the TARTELETTE AMAZONIAN CLAY MATTE palette for her eyes. The colours are all matte from pale to dark, they are taupe mushroom like hues which blend beautifully, and a perfect palette for bridal too!

Working on a film set has been really exciting. A great experience to get to know how makeup comes across on screen. Working to a mega quick time frame has been challenging but such a fantastic opportunity!
