Talent: Tahira Herold Hair & Makeup designer
When Chilean commercial director Reca’s office called asking for our client Tahira Herold, it was very clear that they needed someone who was not fazed by celebrity and could deliver the work in the middle of action! Tahira shares a few memories from this shoot:
It was very exciting to work on an International campaign for the brand Gatorade with a professional sports figure like Alexis Sánchez. Even though I don’t follow football, I very much admire the skill, talent and dedication it takes to work on an international level. Some of the moves are so precise and intricate, they are mind boggling!
From a makeup perspective, it was very straight forward. I needed to make our hero look good and handsome and then monitor sweat levels. Sometimes I needed to add some water spray so that it could read on camera, and sometimes I had to take natural sweat down so as not to look messy.
The whole thing became quite comical as we tried to communicate with some language barriers and I tried to mime “I am going to spray your face now” without looking too silly. We got there in the end.
Director Reca held it all together marvellously and was equally great to work with.
