For Katie and Other Producers | Pour Katie at Les Autres Producteurs

Though I would indubitably want to be hired to paint faces on every [(high) paying] project thrown my way – I only own one set of two hands. Alas, nobody’s perfect.

On jobs where my presence is attained but not obtained, I have my humble recommendations for producers who double up as makeup/hair artists and are smart enough to come ready for anything:

  • Translucent Powder is of optimum importance as nobody wants to be immortalized on screen as a sweaty, shiny mess. My favourite is Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

  • Tissue Paper should always be on hand to wipe up snot rockets and pat down sweaty brows and noses.
  • Hairspray can not only rid unruly wisps of hair-in-the-face but can double up as an eyebrow tamer when used along with clean mascara spoolies [most beauty stores sell these]. I like Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray in travel size. This formula doesn’t weigh down hair, works great on any texture, and smells yums.

  • Lipgloss for women and Chap Stick for men and children – clear lipgloss can spruce up any face and lessen worry of dry, bleeding lips. Big fan of Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream which can also be used on dry skin anywhere on the body, especially important for gestures by hands with ashy cuticles.

  • Concealer for blemishes or discoloration of the skin and dark under eye circles. My new favourite saviour is Joe Blasco’s Red Away which is also waterproof thus fantastic for waterworks.


  • Beauty Blender Sponges are great to get rid of any foundation or powder streaking on the face of your victims. You can buy them with a cleanser that will prolong the life of your sponges up to seven months. [They come with super simple instructions for both applying and cleaning.]


  • Wet Wipes – for when you have to take everything off! Though I prefer Korres Pomegranate Wipes, simple unscented baby wipes will do.

  • Brushes are also a good idea – www.crownbrush.com has a really great selection of travel brush kits!


After all that you’ll need a pretty carrying case. 🙂
