I’m sure you’ve all seen this but just in case you haven’t, doing my bit by spreading it..
I actually did some make-up work for a Refuge campaign about 7 years ago. It was for the Sun newspaper and shot by Rankin. Hearing the tales of what had happened to these women, as I was making them over, was harrowing. Of all the make-up work I’ve ever done, I will always remember them as being the most grateful and appreciative. Just me putting a little bit of slap on them made them so happy and they kept thanking me repeatedly after. A stark contrast to my behaviour the other day (admittedly it was the day after I had returned from a festival, so I was feeling fragile) where I almost cried because I wasn’t happy with my make-up that was forced upon me at an event. I don’t think I would have minded so much if I was just going to go straight home after, but it was because I had another event following with a well known celebrity and I had to attend it with this make-up on (think pictures and everything). But anyway, thinking back about that time all those years ago definitely puts it in perspective for me. My behaviour was #spoiltbratproblems.
