The woman's mouth twitched for a while as she scrutinized the newbie. Finally, she showed a sneer. "Well, well, well. This is interesting. Watch your back, Yun Shishi!"
Yan Bingqing snorted haughtily after saying that, picked up her expensive Chanel carrier bag, and rudely brushed past her shoulders on her way out.
The atmosphere in the makeup room weighed down heavily on those present for a moment.
The faces of Ding Ning and Mu Xi, especially, had turned as white as a blank sheet of paper.
Unfazed, Yun Shishi sat in front of the vanity mirror and said, "Miss Ding, my makeup may be simple, but you are the expert after all, so my skills will definitely not be as good as yours. Bearing this mind, can you be more professional in your work approach? Please come over and do my makeup now!"
Mu Xi was too dumbstruck for words.
Qin Zhou had told her that this woman was rather peace-loving – someone whom she should emulate after.
How can this be called peace-loving…
She liked it, though.
Still, she was a little worried for her – worried that Yan Bingqing would take this to heart.
In any case, the entertainment industry was as such; the fighting and wrangling would come sooner or later.
The character, Yin Xiachun, that Yun Shishi was going to portray in the show had most of the parts set as a student. The look and feel for this female lead should be clean and pure. Ding Ning gave her a translucent nude crystalline look. Although it was not an elaborate makeup, the process still took an hour. After putting on the pinkish rouge, it was finally over.
This was considered as fast, actually. Contrary to popular belief, the nude look was not easy to pull off. The amount of foundation applied on the face had to be just right, without being too much or too little.
Ding Ning could not help exclaiming, "Your skin is so flawless it's too good to be true! You'll definitely be famous once this film of Director Lin is released!"
Mu Xi was blown away with one look and quickly led her to the production set.
Everything was ready and on standby.
Lin Fengtian was known for being quick-tempered. Taking a look at the time, he impatiently clamored, "Where is the lead? Is she done with her makeup?"
"Yes, she's ready!"
Mu Xi hastily rushed over. "Director Lin, we managed to beat the clock. She's done with her makeup. When are we starting?"
"Where is she? Let me have a look first," he said.
Just then, Yun Shishi casually strode into the production set.
The film set seemed to liven up in that instant.
She looked slim in her simple snowy white dress. Her raven hair, reaching until the waist, was satin-like and glossy.
He lifted his head to see a face, clean and fair, with exquisitely sweet features and a pair of blushing cheeks. She was otherworldly beautiful.
Her elegant brows framed her two dewy eyes. When her eyes drooped, her curly lashes, long and dense, fluttered like black feathers or dancing butterflies. Her cherry-red, moist lips looked like lovely, delicate petals without the need for embellishment. She was breathtakingly captivating.
The director stood stock-still for a long time. The pupils of his eyes condensed as they became fixated on her.
The spacious film set went quiet momentarily.
Mu Xi anxiously waited for Lin Fengtian's verdict. He was known for being strict, so she was worried that the makeup would not pass his mark. She only sighed in relief once she saw the marvel vividly reflected in his eyes.
To be precise, he had been bewitched. He could feel his body temperature rising, as if he had too much to drink; he was looking at her like a young boy in puberty who had just met his dream girl.
All men had an obsession to beauty.
