Right I have so much I want to say about what happened on this beautiful day in a rough part of London. I have a hell of a lot of photos too so this is going to be a three parter. Look out for the next. I took seven pages of notes in one day! I have never been so mentally involved and trying to take everything in as much as I was at this workshop. I'm amazed A) I was invited B) anyone spoke to me (I'm weird and awkward) 3) Einat Dan answered all my questions 4) I loved every second and want to be a photographer/makeup artist now.
Einat Dan, originally from Israel, is a wonderful inspiring warm spirit. Honestly before I was invited to this course I didn't know who she was. I wouldn't be able to pick out work she'd done. Simply, I'm an embarrassment. As a photographer if I'd have researched MUA's on campaigns I'd have found her instantly. Her work is jaw dropping. H
I was invited to her workshop by Michelle Court (aka Court on Camera) who is also an awesome MUA. I'd happily chat to both of them for hours. Sup to Michelle's sister Sam if she's reading this! We bonded over clean eating, water yoga, crystals and pole dancing!
So in my notes I took down a few quotes from around the room on the day! A few were as follows...
"Bridal makeup- up there with the pain of child birth" -Michelle
"I almost killed one editor. So we were on top of a snowey mountain, it was dangerous and there was a guy looking after us- I lost many brushes that day from not holding on to them hard enough. Anyway the photographer and model went higher and in the cover photo the model's eyelashes were half off! Quick call and the editor sorted it luckily!"
My mua Sarah the other day said proudly she bought this amazing twenty piece glitter set from hobbycraft! Gotta love craft shops. I see something now and wonder if I can stick it to a model's face or make it in to a hat! Y'know just keep trying.
