Park: My favorite days are when we haven’t really established a look. Of course, we tried to consider the mood of every shot, but sometimes I just say, “Okay, I really want to somehow get the green eyeliner on today. “
Nicholas: You really know a lot about makeup. I have learned a lot from you! It’s not like I’m the only makeup artist; you were with me.
Park: I’ve worked with a lot of makeup artists and it’s unique when you find one you feel like a collaboration with. Especially as an Asian actor, I’ve had makeup artists say, “No, no, no, this is the way you do it. “But you’ve been so careful and researched on my face makeup for some lenses and cameras.
Nicholas: It also helps you to know your face very well.
Park: I mean, to be vulnerable for a second, for a while, I never wanted someone to freak me out because I thought it looked too Asian and I was busy trying to look as white as possible in front of the camera. But I’ve been really open to wearing makeup in a different way over the past year. I’ve become a lot more confident in myself and I don’t always feel one way, and you’ve really helped shape that journey.
Nicholas: I feel really happy to hear that. I wish I had words in English!
Park: You know, I’m filming a movie in Vancouver and I’ve got a little more control over my makeup. I would say, “Oh, actually, no, you put on eyeshadow like this. And the hot pink looks great down here, too, trust me.”
Nicholas: The two of us just knew what to do. As you said, sometimes there’s no need to talk – just laugh and music.
Park: You had to put off my singing at five o’clock in the morning when I was trying to wake myself up! I mean, I’m a singer, but I’m not comfortable singing in front of people like that, unless I have to. Remember when I found out you didn’t know about musical theater?
