I was a cast member over the weekend of a movie filmed in Yakima that had me sitting in the make-up chair. It was a new experience for me.

My role involved me sitting underneath some lights. With my thinning hair, I have an exceptionally shiny head. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing, but something I just have and deal with.

They had a make-up lady on site who was a pro. I took my seat, wished her luck and she pulled out several items from her kit.

She didn't take very long, either. Just a few sponges, a few light brush strokes and said I was finished. It didn't feel like I was wearing anything. Looking in the mirror I immediately noticed a difference in a good way. I have red spots on my face and she removed all of those. She found something that matched my skin tone perfectly. And my head wasn't as reflective. Nice!

It was easy to wash off at the end of the day, too.

After going through this for a few days this past weekend I have all the more respect for every lady who puts on make-up every day. It can't be cheap.
