How to circumnavigate a cranky make-up artist! (advice on dealing with me and my tribe). :-D

Hello Skinlovers Mini rant warning.

I repeat once more and with feeling! We the tribe of make-up artist who understand and not just splash paint all over your face are miracle workers but still it is a damned make-up brush and NOT a magic wand!
and really bitches you trying to convince us that 7 layers of polyfila are necessary so the client can show up in pictures, then you seriously need to update your knolwedge of the new technology available in photography.
Also remember a piece of art a masterpiece takes time and is not done in 20 minutes, that’s just downright messy and inconsiderate. But that is my opinion.
If you are a smoker DO NOT WHINE about the following:
Dark Circles under your eyes.
The dry and crepey look.
The Rausched look.
If you have an important even do the following (smokers and non- smokers alike):
Do not drink like a fish.
Do not stay up all night.
Do not forget to cleanse and moisturise.
When you take care of yourself and your skin it is plump and dewey which means we do not have to use thick polyfillla layers of concealer, which turns crepey and chalky when applied to abused and maltreated skin, as your skin will be parched and absorb any bit of moisture leaving it flaky and in a worse case. You have no excuses (unless it is insomnia). You need to take care of your skin and treat it right, the better the skin the less product is needed.
And all those youtube tutorials which plaster on the war-paint are not your friends, because after a couple of hours your skin will be looking like crap and so -on.
Work with us.
If your skin is combination, dry or you do not know what it is tell us. Just don’t complain that X’s make-up didn’t last, not their fault yours (okay maybe a bit theirs if they didn’t ask, but if they forget you tell them symbiotic relationship Y’All).
O and please, concerning the lipstick, do not expect the make-up artist to give you their lipstick, no way Jose! I have lost many an expensive one when the girls are like “We’ll give it back to you tomorrow” HELL NO NO WAY NEVER AGAIN. I will make sure a lipstick will last long but you in turn (once again) have to make an effort and moisturise your lips and scrub them so they aren’t dry, and dehydrated. Find your own shade and get it. And if you are a smoker this goes triple for you.
I can custom blend one for you but hell I will be damned if you are getting my YSL, Dior, MAC, Shiseido or Chanel Lipsticks or glosses no way not anymore.
My advice for those who are having a huge event (engagement, wedding, and’or whatever celebration):
Think like a professional model.
Go to bed early.
Get some rest.
Hydrate well.
Moisturise well.
That’s eyes, lips and skin.
Do not do a facial a few days before your big event ( do it a week minimum before).
Do not try new skincare, makeup, whatever stick with what you are used to.
Do not suntan the day before unless you are aware and do it at half hour intervals re-applying your sunblock every 2 hours.
After your shower use an oil with healing properties instead of the Aloe Vera gels (if you can get your own fresh Aloe that is the best but most gels have alcohol in them not good at all for the skin, fresh aloe paste with honey is excellent).Within Modern Mod
This was the mini rant for today.
