Behind the Brush

Alison was a makeup artist. She shadowed Lou Teasedale to get experience. Her job mostly consisted of watching and handing Lou the products that she needed. She was never allowed to even adjust the five superstars' makeup or hair. Then, one day, Lou calls in sick the day of the show. Food Poisoning. Alison gets her chance at doing makeup for once, and maybe a chance with a curly-headed boy...... (btw this is for a contest!!!! oh yeah!!!! please like/fave if you do like it!)


2. Chapter 2

*Alison POV*


"Yes, I know, its a tragedy, but you've been shadowing Lou for long enough, I need you to do the boys' make up tonight."

"The boys' makeup?"


"No...... Just making sure....."

"Well it's not like Paul needs his makeup done....."

       I was giddy with excitement. I would actually get to put my makeup skills to use!!! Not to mention get up close and personal with the boys. Of course I had seen them before, but I never actually stood that close to them or even talked to them, I don't even think that they know I existed. Even the water girl talks to them more than I do!

      Just as I finished rearranging the brushes, the boys walk through the door. They look around, probably looking for Lou.

"Where's Lou?" asked Zayn to no one in particular.

"Oh, she got food poisoning so I'm here to replace her."

The boys all looked at me in shock.

"Who are you?" asked Liam.

"I'm Alison. Lou's assistant. I've been on tour with you guys since London."

The all looked at me in bewilderment. Of course they wouldn't have noticed me. I'm of average height, with plain brown hair and brown eyes, and plain features. I mostly just stood a bit farther back from Lou as she did their make up. They probably assumed that I was a temporary water girl.

"What's your accent? American?" asked Niall.

"Oh no it's Canadian..... But I think there's a hint of British in there as well since I've been hanging around Lou and Ryan for so long."

Louis looked at me with a look of contempt. 

"Are you sure that you can do our makeup? You look a bit young and unexpirienced," he said. 

My face burned.

"Well... I'm nineteen.... And I've done work with other agencies....." I stammer.

Louis' face relaxes into a smile.

"I'm just kidding! Even if you do mess up, no one will notice."

I smile back at him. 

"All right," I say with a voice of authority, "Niall and Harry, go over to Ryan, Niall, your roots are growing out too much and Harry you need a trim. RYAN!"

Ryan looks over.

"DO NIALL FIRST! While his hair gets bleaches you can cut Harry's!"

He nods and beckons Harry and Niall over. 

I turn back to Louis, Liam , and Zayn.

"All right, Louis, I'll start with your make up, Liam, after seeing how you did your hair last night when you went out with the boys, I am quite sure that you are capable of re-creating that look. There's some hair gel on the counter. Axe, your favourite. Zayn, go over to Ryan and grab the razor, you went from handsomely scruffy to looking like a hobo. Ge-"

"A hobo?" asks Zayn.

"A homeless person," I say with a sigh.


"All right, everybody knows what they're doing?" I ask. 

They all nod.

"Good, NOW GET TO IT!"

For the next hour and a half, Ryan and I prepped the boys. We turned then into the gods that the fans think that they are. We had fifteen minutes left. Ryan was putting some more hairspray in Zayn's hair, and I was finishing Harry's makeup. Harry stared at me as I applied the powder to his face.

"What?" I ask, "Do I have something on my face?"

He chuckled deeply.

"No, you just have really pretty eyes," he states in his deep voice.

I blush, and finish up his makeup. He stands up, and grabs his mic along with the other boys as soon as I finish. He looks at me and winks just before he goes onstage. 

My face goes red, and I look down. Ryan walks over to me.

"You fancy him don't you?"

"Who?" I ask.

"Harry. You quite fancy him."

"NO I DON'T!!" I protest.

Ryan looks at me.

"Okay maybe a little....."
