.the michael ball show.
when i step outside my makeup room this is what i see, everybody had gone to lunch at this point but us hard working makeup artists were just about to face our first rush of the day! there does appear to be a man kneeling on the stage but i'm afraid i don't know what on earth he is doing, i wasn't even aware of his presence when i took this photo.....spooky! perhaps it is a bbc ghost! (its not, i recognise him from venturing out of the makeup room to powder a shiny nose or 're-do' a lip)
anyway this week being the last week of michael ball has made me realise how quickly the summer has flown by, where has it gone i ask you? ...i have sad memory of it never arriving :(
we are now officially in autumn, and i for one plan to have a great one... reasons; i appreciate the fact that we have to wear more clothes (its a better look for me), i can stop feeling the need to pile on fake tan (as much as i hate to admit it, i'm too lazy for such time consuming activities) and, my fave, i can spend the evenings making the house all cosy and warm by lighting far too many candles (diptique by preference but anything will do) and covering the front room in fairy lights!
my makeup bag has had an autumn makeover too, my new earthy additions include -
shu uemura painting liner in brown (it looks black in the pic but is dark brown)
mac paint pot in ground work
mac blush in harmony
mac lip conditioner in soothing beige
i love all of them and wearing this much beige/brown takes me back to the 90's (in a good way)
x happy autumn x
