We’re shooting the bonus supplemental for the CV Nation webseries… and I find out there’s a new character. That means new makeup. I learned about the character 3 days ago, and literally thought up the full makeup (which isn’t fully realized even now) this morning in the shower. Sometimes you have to move fast.
I spent the evening at the MAC Pro Store in Beverly Hills for a ‘Paint By Numbers’ Event. I thought there would be more painting and less… selling. But hey, MAC is a business after all, and it’s not like they’re lacking for fans. The place was PACKED.
It’s been few days since I posted… I haven’t been my best.
In the midst of my whirlwind project (which has now been postponed until after Thanksgiving), I forgot some key things about myself. The most important (for now) is that I’m allergic to silicone. I discovered this lovely fact while putting on a pair of silicone hybrid contact lenses. My eyes swelled shut within 24 hours. That was 4 years ago.
Flash forward to last week, when I was eyebrow deep in MAC Acrylic Paints. They’re silicone based. And while I didn’t use the paints on myself, I used a silicone based cleanser to clean all my brushes (just in case any of the paint got stuck in them. Then I used those brushes on my face.
It did not end well.
I’m currently covered in hives (NOT A GOOD LOOK!), but the good news is… they’re getting better. Ugh. First the oxygen madness… now this! This is a lesson to me to THINK before I get slap happy with makeup and what not.
