Professional Grade: The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl

Sunday, I worked on the webseries ‘The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl.’ Producer Issa Rae wanted me to turn the cast into zombies, and I was happy to oblige!

My tools were simple. A few palettes (Standard/Bruise/Death/Correction), some ripped cotton (imitates decaying flesh) and separated and torn tissue. The rest is for application and removal: sponges and adhesive (Spirit Gum) remover, sanitizer and a foundation palette (just in case).

Issa Rae allowed me to put up my two shots of the cast all  ‘made up’ ahead of episode…

I had a lot of fun on the set. The cast and crew is easygoing, but professional. I love a relaxed set, as long as we’re all working toward the same goal. Good times!

Professional Grade: Video Shoot

I joined the fantastic folks led by filmmaker Issa Rae for a video shoot last night. I, along with Makeup Artist Adriana, were charged with glamming up a group of girls… and then destroying their makeup.

I didn’t get a chance to shoot many pictures, but here’s what I got:

My Travel Brushes. As you can see, I use a little bit of everything. LOL

Adriana finishing her fantastic makeup look, and fixing a wig that basically refused to cooperate…

Random Shots:

It was a fantastic experience. I’m happy I got a chance to work with Issa Rae and her crew… I really admire her professionalism and endeavor to make a mark in the world of video and film making. Today, I’m a little groggy after pulling double duty… but I have to say, it was totally worth it!
