Am quite excited as I sent a random message to Tricia Cusden who runs Look Fabulous Forever. It's a brand that produces makeup for older women. She also posts self-help videos about how to do makeup, clothes etc as your body and face are changing. She's had over a million hits on Youtube and runs a very successful business. She also lives in Wimbledon which is just down the road.
I figured there was no harm in asking, so wrote to see if she fancied doing a video together. I'd noticed most of her models were grey/blonde and I'm dark so suggested me as an alternative and someone who basically has done the same thing with her makeup for about 20 years. I only checked my messages yesterday and turns out she'd written back immediately asking me to join a filming session on Monday as they were specifically looking for a dark-haired model. Initially I was stoked, but then realised it was Tuesday already :(
Undaunted, I called her and after a lovely chat she's invited me over to her place early December to shoot a Christmas Party Makeup look. CAN'T WAIT!
