MODEL: Emma Lou

How long have you been modelling?
Nearly 2 years with Colours Agency

What’s been your most exciting job?
Things which allow me to travel - recently had a job in Ibiza with a footwear brand. We were there for just over 2 days and it was so beautiful. We were shooting over the sunset in Es Vedra.

What’s your favourite part of modelling?
I love that my job allows me to travel to new places and meet lots of new people. The variety is another great thing about being a model – every job is different which keeps it exciting!

What would be your top tip for anyone wanting to have your job?
You need to be confident, always be yourself and be comfortable in your own skin! Most of all have fun and don’t let anyone ever tell you you're not good enough.

MUA: Molly Jane Sheridan

How long have you been working as a Make - up Artist?
I’ve been out of college for a year and working full time as a MUA since then.

What types of make – up do you work on?
The things I’ve worked on have been really varied. I’ve done make-up for fashion editorials, films, TV, theatre and prosthetics. I’ve worked on some childrens T.V. programs with the BBC like M.I. High and Dog Ate My Homework as well as period dramas like Garrows Law. With fashion I have worked with lots of young Scottish designers like Isolated Heroes, Haylea Scanlan, Staysick, Bonnie Bling and Matthew Houston.

What’s been your most exciting job?
The Happy Lands, a feature film produced by Theatre Workshop Scotland. I was doing period make-up for the production and had such a great time. It was 300 people from Fife, I’ve never had such a laugh on a job!

What’s your favourite part of being a Make - up Artist?
Meeting likeminded people.

What would be your top tip for anyone wanting to have your job?
Get as much experience as you possibly can and never turn down any opportunities when they come up. Also, be prepared not to make money for a really long time!
