Glam checked in with makeup artist to the stars Coleen Campbell-Olwell as she rushed all around Hollywood, prepping the tresses of Laura Prepon and Kate Mara before the ladies hit the red carpet at the Golden Globes. Here, Campbell-Olwell shares her schedule during awards season madness:
Wakey Wakey! It’s time to roll out of bed and get my day started. First thing I do is be grateful that I get to do what I love for a living, and say good morning to my hubby and pups.
Stroll slowly to my beloved Nespresso machine and brew a half-caf coffee. Just a little fuel to help get my day going and look through my emails for any last minute changes.
Must. Eat. So not a breakfast person, but it will be a long day of just snacks in the car. Hard-boiled egg and toast it is.
Time to get myself together! Jumping in the shower. Attire for today: the usual, jeans and flat boots since I'm on my feet all day. Usually I do simple makeup on myself, it’s easy and fast!
Leaving for my day. I still get excited and nervous, but I feel prepared. I do a lot of research before a red carpet event. To make sure I keep things current and fresh I go through mags and fashion blogs especially during fashion week. If possible I will connect with my client and and talk about the dress, jewelry, hair and see what ideas she has for makeup.
I just arrived at Laura Prepon's house, my first client of the day nice and early. Seemed to be always running late as a teenager, now I am always early so that I arrive prepared and calm to start her makeup.
Start packing up my kit and cleaning my brushes. Laura seemed really pleased with her look and her dress is perfect.
Jump into my car and I'm off to Kate Mara's.
Getting hungry, but no time to stop, so I pack lots of snacks. My faves are bananas, almonds, Country House Flaxseed squares, and water. Hmm, coffee would be really good right now.
Roll up to Kate's house. Nice timing! It's so nice that the Golden Globes are on a Sunday, as the traffic seems lighter (which rarely happens in LA) This really helps with my busy schedule.
Setting up my makeup station.
Kate is getting in her car to hit the red carpet, and I loved how she looked! Dress, hair, makeup – everything came together beautifully. Now I can take a breath and head on home. Had such a fab day. I'm really happy with how both my clients looked and I'm really excited to see photos.
My lovely husband was going to grab takeout, but I decided to stop at Whole Foods and pick up veggies and chicken to make Yellow Thai Curry.
Home. It’s been a long but awesome day. It seemed to go by so fast. Now all I need to do is get into my comfy clothes and sit and watch the Golden Globes Red Carpet.
Checking the Internet for pictures of Kate Mara – she looks so beautiful!
Time to cook up some dinner. Ready for some real food.
Dinner is ready and we're just about to eat some curry and watch the awards! I'm sure Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be awesome. Such a great day, nothing crazy happened and luckily I work with such wonderful ladies. Until next week....
