glamorous, right? getting your makeup done is so…glamorous? i’m probably going to some fancy party, right? some premiere? toting my assistant around probably, because i have
seven…i mean none.
because if you knew getting my makeup done meant only concealer, photo-ready foundation and big red circles of creme blush on my cheeks…this picture wouldn’t be half as cool. this is from a gig i did in portland a week ago monday. just to give you all a little glimpse into what life as a striving actress is really like. i did a photo shoot with 4 others advertising a company giving away a free porsche to the winner. the people i worked for were really nice and i’m thankful for the gig, although i have to admit i sort of felt like a sell out. they paid extremely well so i donned an elf outfit and posed merrily with a porsche. fancy.
i really am not complaining. this is life! you start at the bottom and you sometimes sell out if the money is high enough and you’re really broke. i just want to dispell the misconceptions that everything in this industry is glamorous. this is for a big billboard off the freeway in portland. and i, being ever-so-passionate about breaking out of stereotypes, am in an elf costume. [insert hypocracy here].
