There was this time I was called to do a magazine shoot with a famous rock band. Obviously, who ever booked this shoot knew nothing about working with musicians and scheduled the call time for 9am. Much to my surprise, the band showed up pretty much on time. Not so surprising was that they were all slightly hungover and obviously hadn’t slept the night before. So once everyone had a cup of strong coffee in hand I busted out my industrial strength concealer, a matte bronzer and got to work. Last in my chair was the lead singer, who was in far better shape than his band mates. As he sat down he motioned for me to lean in, as if he wanted to tell me a secret.
“Love,” he whispered to me in a sweet British accent, “can you do me a favor?“
“Sure,” I replied, returning the whisper. “What do you need?”
“Do you think you could make me look kind of pale & sickly? I think that look is REALLY cool.”
I smiled & quietly assured him that was no problem, and proceeded to make him look like a hard living, bad-ass Rock Star, as requested.
“Our secret, ok?” he said with a wink as he got up to head to set. “Of course,” I said with a smile. “That’s my job.”
