One of the perks about this job (depending on how you look at it) is that you get a whole lot of chances to practice different make up techniques and looks. I don’t normally wear a lot of make up in my day to day life, but getting dolled up for the camera every night is fun. Though it is less fun to have to wash all that off before I finally crash for the night. It does mean you have to wear quality makeup so your pores don’t get wrecked, though.
I learned about contouring and it changed my life.
