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.
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 :
AIRMIST 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.
Sophora 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!
