Yikes.The science behind COVID-19 is always evolving and so are our procedures and protocols in dealing with it.
The talk is that airbrushing will become obsolete.
Hair will have their own trailer. Our make-up PPE has been scaled down to just wearing N95 masks and eye protection of some kind. Changing out N95 masks every few hours. Hand hygiene / washing will be increased. Short, polish free nails for everyone. COVID-19 testing once every 14 days. temperature checks 3 times a day. Sanitizing and washing make-ups and tools 3 times a day as well as between actors. Make-up stations sanitzed at the beginning and at the end of the day. And a maximum of 4 MuA's will be hired per production and will have their own designated areas. We can only contact each other via text, facetime, Zoom, or two-way walkie. Touch-ups will be done in a designated area away from cameras, but close by.
At least productions will have a dedicated COVID-19 coordinator on set, a nurse (sometimes 2) and the usual set medic.
AgreeThe one thing I've noticed on the street that is trending right now is stronger, intense eye make-up looks. (Think Middle Eastern inspired eye make-ups) in very bold, bright colours, heavy liners and LOTS of mascara.
I must say it compliments the various cloth mask designs women are wearing.
