Myself and my team member Nicole had the pleasure of working with Martin Short and Steve Martin recently on two separate occasions.
This is the third time I personally have had the pleasure to work with Martin Short, and the first time with Steve Martin! These two comedy legends are an absolute pleasure to work with. They have been friends for 30 years, and their secret to a lasting friendship? Laughter!
So many people ask me how it is to work with Martin Short, and my response is always that he’s hilarious even when I’m doing his makeup! My mother actually grew up with him and my great grandmother babysat him, so my family has a long history with him. I’ll never forget the second time I did his makeup and I asked him to take a picture with me. I said to Marty: what should we do in the photo? He said “Well, you should do my makeup!” We laughed and laughed and this was the photo that was captured:
Martin Short and Steve Martin were interviewed for a 60 Minutes Australia feature where I did their makeup on stage after their sound check. I had the pleasure to be able to sit in on for awhile, and prior to their stage show “Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t” later that evening.
It was a makeup application where I had to do everything on stage prior to their interview, so I spritzed their faces with Glo Skin Beauty hydration mist to quickly prep. I then held my Glo Skin Beauty therapeutic makeup palette and powder brush for a quick and easy application with enough coverage to make them look flawless. I followed this by a quick brow and concealer application and scurried off the stage. Nicole then did their makeup on location for the second day of interviews.
