Half way through my day I get a call from a top commercial casting agency, saying they need to see me for a national commercial by 5pm, of course I said I would be there as soon as I could. Luckily I ate lunch at my desk today and worked while I ate, so I could spare the time to hop to the audition.
But since my day was pretty standard, I wasn't dolled up and camera-ready and I had foolishly left my make-up bag at home. So like any innovative actress, I sprinted to the nearest Sephora and gave myself an impromptu (and free) make-over and then jetted to the audition.
The moral of this story?
Never get caught without your make-up bag, a hairbrush, heels, and a tank top. If you're lucky, a pretty standard day can quickly turn into a pretty awesome day.
