I work with more private clients. These jobs can be stressful too, but it's usually a quiet storm, not a chaos like the backstage of a fashion show. When working with a celebrity, you have to read their energy. Sometimes you have to be chatty and fun—their entertainment—and sometimes you need to be serene, calm and invisible. It's all about boosting their confidence.
Very often with celebrities, you've got to play it safe, especially for red carpet. And sometimes with photo retouching, what you do the day of the shoot isn't what you see in print. One of My regular celebrity Client taught me that if you use orange or brown tones on redheads, it makes for a muddy face. So I never use peach on this Female Clebirty, it's always a hot pink. But one magazine color-matched her lipstick to match their logo. It was an orange red. I called her up as soon as I saw it in the magazine and said, "you know I would never put that shade on you!"
With the advent of face fillers, it can change the way makeup holds and wears. If you fill lips a lot, the inner moist area gets pushed out and lipstick doesn't stick to it. The lipstick ends up migrating to the edges of the lips, so you have to be careful. Whether it's over-plumped lips or a pimple, sometimes I'll ask my client if I should keep touching up an area or just leave it alone.
