So guys I have had a few questions about what make up to wear to an audition and my advice?
none....or barely any
The idea behind this is that if they wanted to see you in eyeliner and red lips they will hire a make up artist to do that! They want to see you and your natural look for the part, no matter what part it is. Your natural beauty is always better!!
So what I suggest:
I'm quite fair-haired so I use a little eyebrow filler and some Mascara (Christian Dior Extase).
My foundation routine is very simple too, I use MAC Face and Body in the colour N1. It's the lightest and honestly I've never had a better foundation. I will most likely do a review on this soon as I think it may just be in my list of Actor's Essentials (new blogpost coming soon!)
So keep it simple. If you have dark hair then all you might need is just a small bit of foundation (DON'T CAKE IT ON!!!... use more of a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone), and possibly a little bit of concealer.
I always wear as little make up as possible because they can always change it with their own make up artists.
(In terms of hair, just wear what you are most comfortable with, I prefer my hair up, but my hair is strawberry blonde and curly so I quite like to show it off as I think it sets me apart from a lot of dark haired actresses out there, so I'd compromise and put the hair around my face and just clip it away and leave the rest really natural. I would always just recommend that you go in as natural as you can be. They can always change it.)
Comment below if you have any more questions on how to go or approach and audition.
Thanks for reading!! xx

We were given the opportunity to walk the red carpet or just sneak in. Of course there was a big part of me that wanted to walk the red carpet but I didn't want to be the one that nobody knows and is just walking the red carpet because she can. When I walk the red carpet I want to do it as a known and recognised actor not some shmo...
Anyway! we were escorted in and asked to take our seats as the stars arrived. It was very cool. Once we were all seated the lovely celebs (Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and her husband Len Wiseman) came down to the front of the cinema to talk a bit about the film and say that you all for coming. And then.. they left. So that was all the exciting hollywood glamour about the event!!!!
But the movie was really great. It was action packed and extremely well interpreted from the original script, with just a few in jokes (not nearly as much as I would have liked). There's a really specific sequence in it that really reminded me of Naughty Dog's UNCHARTED... ha!
So all in all it was an extremely fabulous event! I was so excited to see Kate and Jessica! Stars that I totally admire and aspire to be as successful as! i couldn't get any nice pictures so I'll just rob some here off the internet from the papers!!!
Oh so fabulous!!!
