Getting into Character with Stephanie Lemelin (part 2)

Hey everyone! So as promised in my last post, I am bringing you a second character look I use for auditions and in real life. This edgy, rocker look can be created with hard or soft edges, depending I guess on what story you want to tell (beginning of the night vs. morning after, anyone? ha!) I like the hard lines for characters that are cool and confident, gals who tell it like it is, sistah (cue Boston adolescence)– and then the softer, dustier look for nights out in Los Angeles (on rare occasions I actually hit up the Hollywood scene, it’s true.) Either way, you can easily recreate this look at home (trust me, if I can, you can) by just following the how-to below.  Be sure to keep me and the tarte girls posted on how yours turn-out through comments below… we really love reading them! Fun, fun ;)

Actress Stephanie Lemelin’s Pilot Season Regimen

Hello! I’m very excited to be one of the first guest bloggers here on the tarte website, since I am a true believer/avid-user of these products. Admittedly, when it comes to make-up, hair, and most things fashion-related, I am not exactly a girlie-girl by nature, and often way behind the curve. However, I make my living as an actress, and these things go hand-in-hand. While it’s true there are professional make-up, hair, and wardrobe stylists on set once you’ve been cast in a role, unfortunately there aren’t any at my house before I go on auditions. And I must go on a lot of auditions before I actually get any parts! So, the step-by-step instructions that come with the easy-to-use (and adorably packaged!) tarte products have been extremely helpful! Whether I use them to help bring to life the fresh-faced, teen girl next door (p.s. I’m 30), or the evil vixen who’s out to steal your boyfriend (ummm, hello, I’m married and we’ve been together 7 years now), I rely heavily on looks I learned right here to help morph myself externally and get into character. Anyway I’m going to bring you several looks I use on the outside, to help inspire theattitude on the inside in a fun three part blog series. These characters range from the wild child, to the rocker chick, to the tomboy, to the conservative young professional… Enjoy! Oh, and because these were being publicly shared, I broke down and got some help from a pro– Thanks Coco! But you really can do these at home ;)
