Oona Lind Make-Up & Hair Artist
I started my career as a make up artist working in music videos, these were the days of MTV channel and huge budgets for doing pop videos. The hours were long, we often would travel to other states and there was plenty of money and time to take the whole crew along.. I worked with Nirvana, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Paul Simon and many many more… Things have changed a lot since the heady 80’s
Living and working in Los Angeles during that time was a wonderful experience, made even better because of my great good luck to work with some of the best directors in the world. I did Nike Jobs with David Fincher, beer commercials with Daniel Kleinman, and worked with Gregory Peck in his final years, going everywhere with him when he was being interviewed.
My career as a make up artist has taken me all over the world, I have worked in London, New York, Madrid, Italy and now I live in Barcelona and continue to enjoy my job, sometimes working as a local in London, Madrid or L.A. The hours are long, but people in the movie biz are great and I coudn’t think of anything that I would rather be doing!
