The Makeup Artist -/Fionn Whitehead Part 1.


Hi, it’s Tia! I apologise for not posting in a while, I’ve had major writer’s block and my life has just been hectic. I should have loads of imagines posted soon! 

I got this idea and I thought it would be perfect for a miniseries and for it to be about Fionn. The romance will happen soon, don’t worry! The first part was for you to get an insight and what not!

If you have some requests regarding Fionn, send them ‘here’.

Hope you enjoy. xx


The crisp air causes a crimson pigment to proclaim on the apples of your cheeks as you strolled down the street to get to your destination of the set for Dunkirk. You were lucky to grasp this job vacancy as it was a huge opportunity for your career in makeup. From the experience you had, you normally had to bring your own equipment. However, with this project being funded vastly, you were not required to bring any of your own possessions. Foremost, the actors also needed to illustrate all of their struggles and challenges through makeup (which would allow the acting to look more realistic): they had to look dirty and shiny. Not with fresh looking faces and with all of their blemishes covered up, no. They needed to look like someone had literally slapped them in the face with dirt.

Grasping onto the warm coffee cup, you started to see the set approach you. The hundreds of extras dotted around the beach front, already dressed in their costumes but faces looking fresh, not aesthetically suitable for the scene that would be filmed, shortly.

Nodding your head in a greeting manner every time you walked past one of the crew members, you walked to one of the makeup stations, situated at the top of the beach near the brick wall. You placed your back pack on the white plastic table and your latte next to it. Each of the makeup items had already been placed on the white tables in the tent, ready for usage.

The organisation for the makeup artists and stylists were that each makeup artist was given one of the listed characters (main characters) while the extras were just about working fast to get to each of them. There were over a dozen makeup artists on the set, which meant not all of them got one of the main characters, however, you were lucky enough to catch your grab on Harry, Harry Styles. Which when you found out you had Harry, you were bewildered. Surely, he would have someone more experienced or even his own personal makeup artists than little ole’ me?

Taking a large gulp of your drink, your eyes brightened at the sight of Harry and Fionn approaching your station. If you were to say you were a little bit more excited to see Fionn than Harry, would that be deemed wrong? Although over the time period of a couple of months of working on the set, you and Harry had become close, friend-wise that is, the boy is too disgusting to be seen as anything further. Even off set, with the limited time you do have off, you and Harry would go and adventure out together.

“Hi, Harry. Fionn..?” You trailed, knowing how hectic it was to get the characters looking dirty with the limited amount of time you had, so why was Fionn still looking fresh and cute? Not that the cute had any relevance, but…

“Oi, an’ where is my coffee,” Harry said with a slight huff, then finishing with a smirk.

“I’m your makeup artist Harry, not your assistant,” you joked back and motioned for Harry to sit on the chair so you could start the makeup application.

“Tha’s fine then, I’ll just have som’ of yours,” Harry smirked and grabbed your coffee cup and took a sip. With a huff and the roll of both of your eyes, you muttered that Harry could have the rest. Legitimately a child, he was.

“Oh, an’ Fionn is jus’ gonna hang here fo’ a bit, cause’ Sandra is busy sorting out Barry because one of the makeup artists called in sick,” Harry said, while intently watching you as you sorted all of the makeup that you would need specifically for Harry, as there were some extras that weren’t necessary.

“I may as well as do you as well, Fionn. That is, if I finish with Harry in enough time,” You replied, looking at Fionn as you spoke. A blush makes its way to your cheeks, but you are hoping loud mouth (Harry) wouldn’t pick up on that.

“You make that sound like a gang bang, love,” Harry smirked. A gasp escaped your mouth as you gently slapped Harry on the top of the head. A laugh erupted from Fionn, which caused you to smile.

“S'not nice is it,” Harry mumbled and then took another sip of your drink. You rolled your eyes before grabbing the extra chair and shuffled it closer to Harry so you could apply the makeup. Fionn had already situated himself on the extra chair and watched you apply the makeup.

“Gotta’ make you look like you’ve been beaten when I could do that without the makeup, with the way you are going with annoying me, I could give you two black eyes fo’ free,” you mumbled sarcastically as you dipped the makeup sponge in the brown pigmented makeup. Harry’s eyebrows scrunched up and pouted his lips.

“Told yah, Fionn. She bullies me,” Harry mumbled.

“Nah, mate, she’s fuckin’ funny,” Fionn replied causing your cheeks to explode in a redness. Harry’s eyes widened when he caught the eruption of crimson cover the apples of your cheeks.

“Oi oi…” Harry said with a smirk. You attempted to hide the ever-growing blush on your face by untucking the piece of hair behind your ear. You padded more of the brown pigment onto your sponge and dabbed it around Harry’s eye. At the same moment, Harry raised his eyebrows and tilted his head in Fionn’s direction.

“Stop it…” You mumbled and tried to focus on the makeup application. Once you were finished with Harry’s makeup, it was Fionn’s turn.

“Right, you’re done, mister. Fionn, it’s your turn,” you said while placing your items down and finding a clean-unused sponge. More so, making yourself look busy so you could avoid Harry’s teasing smirk. When you looked back up, Fionn was now sat on the chair and Harry sat where Fionn once was. You gave Harry a knowing look as he still needed his hair done, which only received a smirk and a shrug as a response.

After dabbing the right amount of makeup onto the sponge, you started applying it to Fionn’s face. The close proximity of the both of your faces made it incredibly hard for you to focus. Being this close to his face allowed you to see the intricate details of his face: from his freckles to his mole on his chin, to the beautiful green tint in his eyes.

Also at this very moment, Fionn was inspecting your intricate details: to how beautiful you looked with the minimal makeup you were wearing, to your plump cherry tinted lips that looked incredibly kissable.

To say that it was hard for him to compose himself was definite.

To say that it was hard for you to keep your professional conduct together was also a definite

You almost had to stop breathing because you were afraid of breathing in his face. That was how close you were to his face. What if your breath was bad? Had the Latte you had earlier affected the smell? Probably.

He almost had to close his eyes because all he could stare at was your lips. What if he accidentally kissed you? Would you have kissed back? Would it have made things incredibly awkward? Probably.

“It looks like you both are gonna’ kiss, wit’ how close you are,” Harry teased, causing you and Fionn to move away from each other abruptly. Fionn’s hand awkwardly rubbed the back of his neck, while you coughed to try and disguise your blushing.

“Um, yeah, you’re done Fionn,” you mumbled and placed the makeup down, refusing to look him in the eyes as you were too embarrassed.

“Uh, thanks, love,” Fionn replied and got up from his seat. One of the makeup artists approached the tent and explained how you were asked for, seeing as there were fewer hands with sorting the makeup out.

“I’ll see you two later, then. And, Harry you owe me a latte,” you said and waved goodbye. Once you collected all the makeup items you needed and was out of sight, Harry turned and smirked at Fionn.

“Now, I thought The Notebook was the most romantic thing I’ve seen, but damn, I was wrong,” Harry smirked.

“Shut up, Harry.”

“You should get her number, ask her out on a date. You both seem keen on each other,” Harry said while raising his eyebrows.

“She’ll just say no,” Fionn mumbled.

“Mate, Y/N was basically eye-fucking you, doubt she’ll say no,” Harry chuckled and patted Fionn’s shoulder, gesturing him to move, seeing as they were needed by their hair stylists.

“Let me work some magic and I’ll get you a date with her,” Harry said while putting his thumbs up.

“Oh dear god.”


Summary: You and Dean are always handsy when you are together. Seth and Roman make a bet that you can’t last a week without touching each other. Lots of teasing follows ending with some Daddy smut in the locker room. Smut. Daddy Kink.

anonymous asked:

A thing that I have noticed is that a lot of webcomic dont use the art as tool for storytelling, there's so much one can do playing with panel size, form, coloring and perspective to stablish a character or narrator mental state, the mood of the scene and the foreshadowing! I dont usually read manga, but recently I read one that hides tarot card numbers in panels and uses a lot of visual cues to enrich the story, like a particular gesture to indicate that a character is lying or nervous, (1/2)

(2/2) a checkered pattern floor to show that the protagonist is being manipulated or just a well-placed flower (flower language), I never though of this things but now it has made more conscious on how I draw comics and at the hour to read a webcomic it has made me pay attention to panels details and not just the dialogue, to really treat comics as a visual medium. Sorry for the long text and mistakes (learning english!), I just wanted to share thoughts and thank you for all your advices!

Back in ye olde days of late 90s early 2000s, basically no one in webcomics could draw. 

Questionable Content, 2003

Narbonic, 2000. Narbonic got very good very fast, though. 

And any comic with even a competent artist would get a lot of attention just for that. 

Nowadays, actual artists realized that doing a webcomic could build a portfolio and even a brand, and the market with flooded with quality art

Ava’s Demon


And it became the Conventional Wisdom among us Webcomic Reviewers that art “didn’t really matter”. There were tons of beautiful comics with terrible storytelling, after all, and they were a chore

Dresden Codak. Note that the thing we’re supposed to be looking at in panel 2 is the metal ring showing that Kimiko’s arm is a prosthetic, but the camera is pointed at her boobs. 

Whereas webcomics with bad art but good writing were good comics.

Dinosaur Comics sets the floor for artistic quality, but is still really liked

Some of this was a bit of jealousy, too. Most people who write reviews of comics are bad at art, and prefer to think of writing, which is the thing they do, as the Primary Driver Of Quality. Then other reason is 

Understanding Comics

But the actual fact of a comic is that art is writing, and writing is art. They’re too intermixed to think of as separate skills

Dresden Codak has bad art. 

Technically, it’s fine. Hell, technically it’s amazing. If I quit my job and spent 40 hours a week practicing drawing, It would take me years to get to this level. But it’s not functioning. The panels are in a confusing order, and the shot of Kimiko with her back arched way back as if she wanted to make her boobs more prominent in the shot both makes no sense for the scene (compare to the last panel, where she’s leaning forward in a way that makes more sense), and is the wrong type of shot.

The point of that panel is to draw our attention to the symbol on the back of Kimiko’s black crop top thing, but because it’s a medium shot for some reason (so Diaz can draw boobs), there are TWO symbols on her back. The one of the back of her top is center-panel, but there’s a gear symbol peaking out from beneath the top that more literally fits the description of “the one on your back”, especially since we have no reason to think that the silver symbol isn’t part of her shirt. It should’ve been a close up of the symbol! So that we knew which one it was! 

Compare this page in Gunnerkrigg Court. This is technically bad art. I could possibly draw something like this in a day with my current skills. But the deterioration of the drawing quality is good art, because it gives the sense that Annie’s falling apart, which is appropriate to the scene. 

Tom Siddel can draw like a motherfucker when he wants to (also this layout is excellent), but for this scene of Annie taking her makeup off, he doesn’t want to, and that’s an artistic choice. A pretty good one, actually. 

Order of the Stick is one of the simplest comics out there in terms of visual style. This panel isn’t that hard to draw (compared to Unsounded, for instance). But it works.Even if you don’t know anything about OotS, this shot tells you a ton. You understand that these characters have been going through doors at random, and you know that there’s a shitload of doors. Despite it’s simple art style, this panel effectively conveys the scale of the challenge. 

None of this requires gimmickry (and sometimes gimmickry is good). You don’t need to be great at drawing to make a panel like that OotS one. 

And that’s just basic shot composition! There’s also stuff like the tarot card gimmick you mentioned, color palettes, and visual metaphor. 


While it’s important to remember films != comics, they can be a good resource for this kind of visual thinking. If I’m filming a scene two people talking, I can “draw” nearly as well as any director, since I have a camera on my phone. The difference between me and a great director (besides budget) is where I point the camera, and what decisions I make.

Anyway, here’s a nice set of panels from Octopus Pie, which are great at getting us into Marigold’s frame of mind in a way a good drawing wouldn’t.

A week or two ago (has it really been that long?), @rattonic posted an incredible space bodypaint. Since then, I’ve been working on this painting of the design. Its still a WIP - hence the lack of stars, but here’s a snippet of the full piece! (Click for details)

BTS reaction: liking their new makeup artist

Sorry that it took me this long to get your request done, but thank you for sending it in! xx

ANNOUNCEMENT: Since, my blog turned 1 two days ago, I’ve decided to open requests for written ships for 24 hours ONLY! So please send me a description of yourself and I’ll ship you with one of the members. And do it now, as I will only do the ones who are sent in within 24 hours. I will put my regular content on hold for a bit to get all of the ships done as soon as I can though, so I hope you don’t mind that xx

Jin/Kim Seokjin: 

I feel like he would act more serious if the other boys are fooling around nearby while he’s getting his makeup done. Like, he’ll want to show his more serious side in hopes that that would make his makeup artist take an interest in him. I also feel like the members would notice almost immediately when he likes someone, so he’d constantly be worried that they would accidentally say something.

Originally posted by bangtaninspired

Suga/Min Yoongi: 

His crush would be very obvious to the members, but he would put a lot of effort into hiding his feelings from the makeup artist in question, because he would want to stay professional. So there’d be a lot of lingering looks, and maybe touches, and maybe even a compliment or two, but never enough to make it seem suspicious. And of course, loads of cute smiles when no one’s looking.

Originally posted by jeonbase

J-Hope/Jung Hoseok: 

I feel like he’d be like Yoongi in the sense that he would want to stay professional, and also like Jin in the sense that he’d want to show his more serious side when the makeup artist is around. But, unlike his hyungs, I feel like he’d give up and go back to normal quite soon. He might even start dropping some hints by acting slightly flirty every now and then. But he’d mostly stay professional.

Originally posted by itsrapmonster

Rap Monster/Kim Namjoon: 

He’d probably be very shy and awkward, but try to mask it by having casual conversations when he gets the chance. He’d stay professional, although a bit friendly, and not flirt or anything, but rather get to know them. He’d still have a tendency to destroy more things than usual when they’re around though, because he’d get nervous which would make him clumsier.

Originally posted by rapfluff

Jimin/Park Jimin: 

I feel like he’d find some sort of balance between being flirty and being shy? Like, sometimes he’d say a line that’s openly flirty, but then the next day he won’t be able to look them in the eyes? But he would still try to not make his crush obvious somehow.

Originally posted by 9taefox

V/Kim Taehyung: 

I feel like he would stay the least professional out of all of them. But he wouldn’t be flirting or anything either. He’d just be downright friendly and try to get to know his makeup artist. So really, pretty much no one except the members would probably suspect a crush, because he’s just making another friend.

Originally posted by bangtannoonas

Jungkook/Jeon Jeongguk: 

Shy bun. He probably wouldn’t make much contact with the makeup artist, and almost seem cold. Once he gets more used to their presence he’d loosen up a bit though. He’d turn into a mix of Namjoon and Yoongi, and stay shy, but become friendlier, and still be professional and only make his crush known through longing glances.

Yu Kwon in enjoyed everything about you. From head to toe. Inside and out. You were just so perfect. It was very obvious he had the biggest crush on you. You could spot it a mile away. Of course you didn’t listen at all when his members were trying to tell about his little crush on you. 

Even their manager saw how Yu Kwon would act around you. It made it worse since you were assigned to him as his makeup artist.

“Just a little more…hold still…one second,” I tell Holland as I dab a little more fake blood on her forehead.

“I’m so ready to go home and sleep,” Holland whines. The poor thing had been shooting all day and I couldn’t blame her for just wanting to crash.

I, myself, have been on my feet for going on eight hours now. I was ready for a damn drink…or five.

Being a makeup artist takes its toll sometimes. Long hours, making sure the special effects are perfect and dealing with people who don’t want to stay still, it can really wear on your nerves. But it’s all I ever wanted to do. Working on a hit tv show, with the most awesome people, makes it all worth it. Plus the pay isn’t too shabby either.

“Okay, you’re good to go,” I give Holland a small smile and wave her off so she can go finish her scene.

I start packing my stuff up for the night, making sure everything is cleaned up for the next day. I hear a dramatic sigh from behind me. I don’t even need to turn around, I know who’s sitting in the chair.

“I’m done for the day, so whatever it is that you need, I’m sure it can wait until tomorrow Dyl,” I zip up my bag and make sure my counter is organized.

“Whatcha got planned for tonight?” Dylan asks as I turn around and lean against my counter, crossing my arms in front of me.

  • Double points if you incorporate things like feathers into the braids
  • Always surprised by it even though you do it so often

Nice To Meet You

Relationship: Lin x Reader

Warnings: Swearing

Word Count: 1344

Summary: Reader works at a web show where Lin is being interviewed, and is a big fan of Hamilton. The host cancels and the Reader has to fill in.


“Are you okay?” You turned your head in the direction of the voice and saw the camera guy looking at you wearily. In all honesty, you were freaking out. Today was the day that Lin-Manuel Miranda was doing an interview for the web show that you worked for. You wouldn’t normally be this worked up for an interview, especially considering you weren’t even asking the questions, but this was different. You had been a huge fan of Hamilton ever since it made its off-broadway debut, so this was like a dream come true for you.

You couldn’t say all of that to a camera guy you’d never met before, so you settled for, “I’m fine.” You awkwardly looked at each other before you nodded and left. You really needed to get your shit together before Lin got there.

“Don’t be worried, (Y/N). He’ll love you.” You turned around and smiled at your best friend Taylor.

“Shut up. I’m just the mic girl.” You smiled and looked back down at the table of audio equipment.

“Yeah but you get to be all up close and personal with celebrities,” Taylor teased as she leaned against the table.

“Yeah, for like, less than a minute. It’s not like I’m gonna woo him with my magic audio skills,” you said as you rolled your eyes.

“You never know. Maybe he finds it sexy.” You gave her an incredulous look. “What? It could be a thing.”

“Sure, Taylor. Sure.”


After fifteen minutes of nervously checking and rechecking the mics, the producer came storming into the room where you were filming.

“He just cancelled on us! What kind of douchebag would do that?” the producer, Sam, yelled to no one in particular.

Your heart sunk. Lin wasn’t coming on the show anymore? Even though you were beyond nervous, you were still super excited. You also didn’t think that the producer should’ve called him a douchebag. He probably had a really good reason to cancel, you thought to yourself.

“So, can we go home?” the lighting guy asked.

“No,” Sam said. You were confused. Why did you have to stay if Lin wasn’t coming?

“Lin is still showing up, we just need somebody to interview him.”

It made sense now. Lin didn’t cancel, but James did.

It wasn’t a surprise that James decided to not do the interview. He was an asshole who thought he was too good to be hosting a web show. No matter how famous a guest was, James always thought he deserved better. In all honesty, you were glad he was gone. Good riddance.

“Does anyone know if James left his questions here?” Sam asked.

“I saw him take them home last night,” said Kim, the makeup artist.

“Fuck,” he whispered under his breath. “Does anyone know anything about Hamilton?” Everybody just shook their heads and returned to their work. You were faced with a dilemma.

On one hand, you would’ve killed to interview Lin-Manuel Miranda. You had so many questions you’d wanted to ask for forever. But on the other hand, you’d always preferred to be behind the camera, not in front of it and online for millions of people to laugh at you for making a fool of yourself.

“Actually, (Y/N) knows a ton about Hamilton.” You whipped your head up to see Taylor grinning at you from across the room. You rolled your eyes and flipped her off, but she smiled even wider.

Sam’s eyes lit up. “Really?”

You nodded. “Yeah.”

“Perfect! ‘Fan gets to interview idol.’ I can work with this,” Sam said - more to himself than anyone else - and then made his way out of the filming area.

Right before he left, he called over his shoulder, “just don’t be weird!”

You chuckled awkwardly. “That’s the plan.”


What felt like an eternity later, you saw Lin walk into the studio with a friendly smile on his face. Your stomach dropped for a second as you watched him walk over to Sam.

Sam and Lin spoke for a few seconds before he led him to the makeup chair. Sam then strolled over to you, a fake smile plastered on his face.

“Please don’t fuck this up,” he whispered into your ear. You gulped and nodded. Sam drew back and smiled at you before he went back to Lin.

You busied yourself for the next five minutes by putting your mic on and trying to discreetly fix your hair.

“You guys ready?” Sam asked as Lin walked over to you.

“Yeah,” he said with a smile.

“Good! Let’s get filming!”

You and Lin sat down on the matching chairs, and you tried your best not to make eye contact with him.

“Hi, I’m Lin, it’s nice to meet you,” he said sweetly. He held out his hand and you shook it.

“I’m (Y/N), it’s nice to meet you too, I’m a big fan.” He smiled at you.

“That’s awesome!” His smile was infectious, and you found yourself having to refrain from grinning from ear to ear.

“Five, four, three, two…” As soon as the camera man pointed at you, you smiled as big as you could and began to speak.

“Hello and welcome to PopStation! I’m (Y/N), filling in for James. Today we have Lin-Manuel Miranda with us. Thanks for coming!” You started to breathe again after you finished the intro. If you got through that part, then the rest couldn’t be that bad. Hopefully.

“Thanks for having me!” he said cheerfully.

“I actually have something to confess,” you said, trying to emulate the way James easily spoke with people.

“Go ahead.”

“I love Hamilton.” Lin chuckled slightly as you continued. “The story is great, and the music is amazing.”

“Thank you! I’m glad you like it.”

The rest of the interview went pretty well. By your count, you had only blushed four times. And although you were fangirling for most of the interview, by the end, you appreciated Lin less as “The Cute Guy Who Wrote Your Favorite Musical”, and more as a super intelligent and interesting person. You were grateful for Taylor having thrown you under the bus, but you would never admit it to her.


You were leaning on the brick wall outside of the studio, waiting for your cab, when you were tapped on the shoulder. You looked up from your phone to see Lin smiling at you.

“Uh, hi?” You internally facepalmed at your awkwardness.

“Hi. (Y/N), right?”

“Yeah. What’s up?”

“I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed talking to you. You seem really cool.” You grinned at the compliment.

“Thanks. You’re pretty okay,” you joked.

“I’ll take it.” The two of you laughed slightly. “So, is this what you do? Interview famous people?”

“Nah, I’m the mic girl. Our real host cancelled so I filled in.” A semi-awkward silence settled around you two. “I’m actually in school for a math degree with a focus in statistics, but since it’s summer, I need a job, and putting mics on famous people is kind of a hobby of mine.” You don’t know why you felt the need to blurt out a bunch of information about yourself and make that horrible joke, but you did.

Lin laughed slightly. “Well, if I’m being honest, being miced by pretty girls is kind of a hobby of mine.” You chuckled, and in the back of your mind, you though, is Lin-Manuel Miranda flirting with me?

You and Lin spoke for a few more minutes and swapped numbers before your cab arrived.

“It was nice meeting you, Lin,” you said as you climbed into the cab.

“You too, (Y/N).”

A couple minutes into the ride, you saw your phone screen flash with a notification. You looked down to see a text from Lin.

From Lin:
I hope you can mic me up again soon ;)

You snorted at the kind of sexual message.

To Lin:
You got it

You then locked your phone and leaned back against the headrest, a faint smile gracing your lips.

Thank you James.


favorite megan fox interviews — Megan has publicly stated many times that she gets very anxious if she has to speak in front of a big crowd and that she’s always felt very tomboy-ish growing up; she’s also claimed to be very insecure in many interviews (despite coming off as cocky and confident to some people) and that it takes makeup artists a long time to make her look like a woman. This wasn’t the only photographer to talk about Megan’s ‘rare’ behaviour during shoots either; many have said that she’s amazing to work with, always comes early to the studio and never looks at her own pictures.
