The Hazards of Being a make up artist on location
So I did what she said!
The team was an all female team - photographer, model and me (make up artist, hair stylist and stylist) - plus the photographer's mum (she came along for the ride! - Hazard 1!)
Hazard 2 was when it came to packing - apparently I had no space in my suitcase to pack clothes for me as it would be full of clothes for the shoot we were doing! still, we packed suitcases full of fashion clothes loaned to us by various fashion houses, fashion students etc and wore all of our own clothes on the plane - A bonus is that you loose around 2 stone once you have taken all your clothes off once you have arrived!
We landed in Male, caught a speed boat (at this point we didn't even know which island we was going to) and got off at a very small idyllic Island in the Maldives baby!
Once unpacked we walked the whole distance of the island (about a 20 minute walk) and then enrolled ourselves onto the padi diving course - all for work research, well someone has to!
Hazard 3 - Being woken up at 3 am as the photographer wants to catch the sunrising for a few shots -
Hazard 8 - Fish getting in the way!, come on fish, we are trying to work here!
more to follow soon.
