I have been battling a horrible migraine, now that it has subsided, today’s post will be brief.
CD cases do double duty as makeup palettes:
Here is a tip I learned from working on set with special fx makeup artist, Ashley Hooker. When you are on set use clam shell CD cases as touch-up palettes. Put your lipstick and other cream makeup in there for quick, easy access when doing last looks on set. I usually palette all the cream products for the actor into the cd case from the start of the application. That way I am ready travel when the actor is called to set. This works well for beauty and special fx makeups.
Label your cases:
Label the cases using a permanent marker so you don’t get the actor’s makeup mixed up.These cases in a range of colors, which comes in handy. You can assign each actor a color.
Different Styles of Cases:
Also there are different styles of CD cases but I prefer the flexible, semi-round, clam shell case, instead of the hard, plastic, square CD case which can crack and leave sharp edges.
Where to buy:
You can usually find these clam shell CD cases at drug stores like Rite Aid or CVS for around $15 for a pack of 20. Or buy them online even cheaper.
Remember, no double dipping between palettes!
