Working with celebrities is fun and challenging. Just like every woman, they want to find a look that is right for them while looking beautiful. Whether you are doing their makeup for an early – morning television appearance, a movie premiere, a photo shoot, or the Oscars, you have to adapt the look to suit the clothes, lighting, and occasion. And as with any relationship, if it’s your first time working with a certain celebrity, go slowly, ask a lot of questions, and hand her the mirror frequently to avoid getting big surprises at the end of the application. If it is a celebrity you’ve worked with regularly, just ask a few quick questions about what she’s going to be wearing and the look she wants.
