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!)


4. Chapter 4

*Alison POV*

My phone buzzed once again. I checked to see who was texting me. Of course it was Harry. He had been texting me really corny jokes and funny images the whole day, when I really should have been helping Lou unload the makeup and hair products from the truck. Now I was supposed to go shop for more makeup and hairspray, since we were running low. 

Harry had sent me a picture.

I shook my head. Harry and his puns. 

I see what you did there Mr. Styles :P

I hit send and I went back the shelf in front of me at MAC. Which shade did we need again for foundation? I called Lou.


"Hi Lou, it's Alison"

"Alison! What's taking you so long?" Lou scolded.

"Sorry Lou, I can't remember what shade we needed for foundation."

"Alison I told you to get bronzer and face powder not foundation."


"Urgh you need to get shade number 64 in bronzer and number 3 in face powder."

"Thanks Lou!"

Lou grumbled something about being the only one who knew what was going on and she hung up. I grabbed the makeup that I needed and headed over to the counter. 

The 16-year-old girl at the counter looked at me suspiciously. 

"Hello!" i greeted cheerfully. 

"You're Alison right? One Direction's makeup artist?"

"Actually I'm more like an assis-"

She cut me off.

"Stay away from Harry."


"Are you his girlfriend or something? Because if so I-"

Once more, she cut me off. 

"No. But, I know that I will meet him one day, and we will fall in love. And then I'm going to marry him. I know that we're just perfect for each other."

"Um.... okay.... Do you mind ringing me up?"

"Fine," she sighed.

She looked at the face powder and snorted. 

"What?" I asked, a little bit irritated that she was wasting so much of my time.

"It's just that, everybody knows that Harry's shade at MAC is a one, not a three," she says with an air of superiority.

"First of all, Harry's shade is a two, except when he tans, then it goes to a four. Second of all, two is Louis' shade when he hasn't been tanning in a while, like how he is right now. Third of all, One Direction is not just Harry, and if you really want to be with him, then I suggest you start appreciating his friends as well."

The girl looked at me. she said nothing as she rang me up. She thrust the bag at me without a word, and went to the back room. 

I quickly left, and went to the local high-end salon to buy more hairspray. There isn't really a preference with Ryan, but he just wants his products to be high-end. I buy the hairspray and go back to the arena.
