Diary of a Makeup Artist #18.. Taking Care of Business...

Yes, my friends that is where I've been, "Taking Care of Business". I've been blessed with a 19 day gig this month. Working on a new video for Japan's coveted Pachinko gaming. I've never played it and I have no idea how it works, but boy howdy am I happy they wanna shoot in Las Vegas and with little ol' me. Yay for work.

I'm working on our character actors with my fun friend and fellow makeup maven Song Lopez and sweet Josalene is wardrobing them up. The producer is my favorite fire woman Jody Montoya! Here we are melting by the pool at Trump hotel. We are working wacky hours at wacky locations with wacky smiles on our faces. And once again here's a sneak peek for you to see how many people it takes to make a girl look sexy by a pool in front of a camera.This picture is missing about 30 other people. So don't despair ladies when you see a beauty on t.v. or in a magazine, its all an illusion. We cant all have perfect lighting every second of the day.

The Vegas Vanities have made some new friends. The Tokyo Vanities! These cool dudes are responsible for our Japanese Superstar leads. I can't disclose their names, or I might be in big trouble. But it's been fun sharing tips and tricks with our cohorts from the other side of the world. I've been introduced to giant blotting papers (freakin awesome) and Loreal's Ellenet Hairspray, whoda thunk? I only wish it was as inexpensive here as it is in Europe.

So that's where I've been, I've been reading up on your blogs, but my blackberry hasn't been very friendly in posting comments with blogger not to mention Trump's extensive marble structure has made cell service splotchy. I've been working 12 hour days so when I get home the monkeys get all my attention. Please pardon my neglect. Catch you all soon!

It's good to be the Queen, of beauty, that is.

I thought of you while on vacay.
Finding myself looking HID-EE-USS in photos despite the fact that I look FAB in RL.

Where's MY professional makeup artist?
Now I must ask "Where's my lighting crew/my hair guru/my body make up gal? What ELSE?

Oh well. That's why there's Picasa.

(I took pix, for my button, they sucked. I'm still plotting. You're still busy. We're still good???)

I love your posts.
