Lily’s new video, shot by director Chris Sweeney, is my favourite so far! Maybe it’s because it brings back so many fond memories of Glastonbury, and maybe because everyone’s happy, and maybe because it celebrates her love for husband Sam, who she met last time she performed there. That was five years ago and now they have two gorgeous girls who watched their Mum from the side of the stage for the first time. Lily has been going to the festival with her father since she was a baby – she loves Glastonbury and it loves her back!
I did Lily’s makeup for the video in the morning – signature black eyeliner and lashes with silver holographic glitter under-eyeliner and stars to match. As she was on the move, I gave her a hot orange lipstick pencil so she could touch up her colour, and for her performance in the afternoon, added fluorescent pink and orange eyeliner. Everything was shot on the same day, featuring Lily walking and dancing around Worthy Farm, singing along with fans and generally having a hoot. There’s also footage of her set, which was almost cancelled due to a heavy thunderstorm, but the sun came out at the last moment, and Lily shone.
If you looked closely you may have seen me behind the scenes, backstage at the Pyramid. It’s the first time I’ve ‘appeared’ in a pop video (albeit briefly) and it was my first festival experience (it won’t be my last!) Glastonbury is indeed magical and joyful, a real celebration of music and the arts. Lily was a star. Even the Daily Mail said she looked utterly adorable!
