Prior to the show, I tried contacting somebody about what kind of makeup I was to do because I could only bring so much with me. Since I didn't get a reply, I just threw some more colorful eyeshadows in my kit and ran out the door.
I was very lucky. There were a few familiar faces on site. The stylist that snagged me was a girl that worked at the lab during my class hours, and her model was one of my classmates! Both are wonderful, easy going people, and the model (Taneil) used to model professionally so she was very easy to work with.
The stylist, Tasha, wanted dark makeup for Taneil. She left me a lot of freedom with the makeup, but asked for black lipstick and dark, but not goth, eye makeup to contrast her pure white dress. Tasha watched me as I applied the makeup, and was thrilled with it. That took enormous pressure off my chest, as then I would not have to go back and make adjustments. Also, I was very grateful that none of the other stylists knew who I was and asked me to do makeup on their models, because it allowed me to allocate my full hour of time to Taneil. When everyone knows you do makeup and everyone wants their makeup done, it gets very chaotic....
I wish I had taken more pictures, but I was rushing to get to work on time! If/When I get copies of the professional pictures, I'll post those too!
Yes, that is indeed a dress made of coffee filters that Tasha made. Crazy, huh? I had to leave before I could see the finished look all put together. Here are some pictures from Tasha's phone though.
