I would like to work with Kesha, her recent music videos had awesome grungy makeup looks. Also, Lady Gaga because I think she would be up for anything.

I think the Fanning sisters are particularly fetching though. Also, is this weird? Helen Mirren.

Not weird at all. Although a look strikes a chord, it's a lot more than just the visual for me. Also has to do with how they handle themselves, their off camera projects or antics and that unquantifiable spark....i forgot to add other celebs i would love to make up....Marilyn Manson, Tilda Swinton and Bjork. My all time fav is Audrey Hepburn (RIP), i envy the MUA's who had the pleasure of working on her.

Goodness... how do I pick? sad But OK, to name a few: Cate Blanchett, Simone Simmons, Amanda Sommerville, Eva Green, Vanessa Redgrave, Liv Tyler, Judi Dench, Joely Richardson, Inga Scharf, Maite Itoiz, Marit Børresen.

They may not be celebs for everyone, but they are for me. smile

ok, I am the odd one here.... I'll admit it upfront.   I HATE working with celebrities.  I did makeup a few weeks ago on a teen celebrity... I'm not going to name drop and probably won't add her to my resume.   I HATE this whole scene... I had to drive from the Hotel to the location myself (long story) and be let in a back gate with screaming fans all over the place.... I told security I was makeup and was with so and so... they went to check with "her people"  I told the guy... "I really don't have time for this...Do I really look like a Disney fan to you?"  I knew she had 10 minutes before show time..... By the time they let me backstage she was heading to the stage to sing... no touch ups..... nothing..... same thing at comicon every year....... the screaming fans, the autographs, I don't get the whole  fan scene?  I feel disconnected somehow... I do respect great actors and singers but I have NO desire to touch them or talk to them.... is that weird?

I don't think it's weird, but I think it comes with personal development and maturity as in my opinion it comes with respect - respect for oneself and showing some dignity (and thus not warping into a screaming fangirl) and respect for another's personal space. I don't get the whole "OMFG, it's that and that person, must get autograph/photo/chat... whatever" either. I don't even get how people assume to bother another person in their free time (like at dinners at restaurants, goodness!).

Yeah.  I'm kind of with Mary on this but I'm in lA which is very celebrity oriented and your almost judged by if you have any or not.    So kind of have to play the game here.  But it's a lot of hand holding and dealing with douche bag publicists who don't know shit but act all important ect ect I could go on and on.

Nicki Minaj

Cause I know absolutely nothing about make up, but hers always looks like it was done by a class of emotionally troubled kindergarteners fingerpainting on her face. So I think I could get away with it.

Lol true but I'd be too afraid to say that in case the "artist" is amongst us. They're probably honestly a great artist. I used to be on Aussie tv for a (very) little while & the makeup artist & I always used to argue about my eyebrows because I was basically into the scouse brow at the time (omg, the shame!) why didn't I listen?

& I can only imagine the diva behavior some artists get from a listers

The Niki Minaj topic has been discussed many times here. Im sorry but they way they send her out sometimes it isn't just the avant garde angle its that it is
poorly done.

I'll take your word on that. I honestly only think I've seen about 3 photos of her apart from the viva glam campaign. All I remember is yellow hair, very pink lips and a rather large a$$et. Never seen one of her video clips either. I really hate pop music. I honestly didn't know what lady gaga was until someone explained her to me in about August last year.

You guys cant blame it on the artist
I was invited to do Nikis  hair for the Grammys when she had that  giant roll in the front of her head , I said no becouse I didnt want to do that hair and someone else got hired , fair enough ,,,,,,,my point being is alot of times and more often than not when working with a celebrity you have to do WHAT THEY ASK , not what you want or think will look better , it dosent work that way unless you have a strong relationship with that actor and even then you run the risk of them going to someone elese who will do what they request ,,,,,,, its generally not the artists fault ................

One of my fellow makeup artists was hired to do Nicki Minaj's makeup when Nicki was up and coming and had just signed onto her label (years ago). Nicki had a lot of opinions (demands) on how she wanted her makeup to look, especially the contour of her nose. Like Anthony said, unless you have a friendship with the celeb, you do what you're asked. Compare Nicki's makeup three years ago to now, I think Joyce Bonelli does the best she can.

I thank God all the time that I can work with celebrities in a "non-market". I get them here in DC as visitors, in a hotel I'm probably more familiar with than them, with the agency in charge of everything, and the DC scene is definitely more chill. I think we have one paparazzi guy who gets side pictures of them so definitely no big crowds. Usually the celebrities are so concentrated on some speech they have to give or so nervous about meeting the President that there is no time to be a diva or have their people get in my way. smile

The times I do have to go with the talent it's way lower key than what you have to put up with on the West Coast, that's for sure! So I guess my experiences have been way different and I don't mind the celebrity work, or the paycheck. I never thought of location as being the make or break factor in working with particular types of clients but I guess it makes sense!
