I haven’t done a ton of student films. I try not to spread myself too thin. Emphasis on the “try.”
But I did one this weekend. And I have to say, it’s pretty fun. You get professional level equipment. You get to practice being on set. You get to practice a lot of the “hurry up and wait” mentality that permeates showbiz. You get to practice hitting your mark and saying your lines over and over again with the same intention. You get better at your craft, even if it’s just for a student film.
But the bestest part of all? You get to have your hair and makeup done.
Oh and you get food.
Today I’m wearing a little black dress.
Why? Because we’re having a party at work and I’m going to another one afterwards
I feel beautiful in it.
Why? Because I work my body out regularly and usually watch what I eat and it responds by staying slender, strong, and healthy.
I’m curling my hair.
Why? Because I feel so pretty in my dress thanks to the confidence I have from regular workout sessions that I want to feel even more feminine with some curly tendrils.
My legs look strong.
Why? Because I make them sore with intense weight training once or twice per week so I’m going to wear a little heel and show them off even more.
My arms look strong.
Why? Because I’m a beast that pushes herself to get stronger every workout session.
I love my body.
Why? Because we take care of each other. So on days when I have an excuse to wear a little black dress and look like a million bucks all day, I’m going to take it.
Can I borrow your dress?
Absolutely not. Get your own.
Despite always wearing heavy makeup along the campaign trail to appear fresh and chipper, Sarah Palin faces a new challenge in a world seemingly filled of them for her. She will be a regular commentator on Fox News. This time around, the challenge will be adjusting to having TV makeup put on her before she gets on camera every single time.
Few people are accustomed to the layers of TV makeup that are required in order to look natural on camera. Palin’s new makeup artist, who has been specifically assigned to her every time she goes on air for consistency purposes, joked that Palin is now “Going Rouge” because of the high amount of foundation she’ll be putting on her skin. When making the joke to the former governor, Palin looked at the artist stone faced and said, simply, “It’s Rogue. Going Rogue.” The artist, wanting to make a connection with her new client, joked back, “Oh right-like the X-men!” Palin, remaining stone faced, repeated, “No, like rogue. Like a maverick.” In one final feeble attempt, the artist responded with, “Top Gun style?”. There was a moment of silence between the two woman, which was finally broken by Palin saying, stone faced, “It’s Rogue.”
Despite the pitfalls, the makeup artist still hopes Palin will understand the joke one day and the two can be friends. “At least she didn’t call me the “L” word,” she said. “That liberal title can mean unemployment around here.”
