Makeup Moments in Movies

When I watch a movie, sometimes I get so excited over the shallow stuff like characters applying makeup.  Two movies which aren’t exactly current but nonetheless have invaded a part of my brain are Charlie Wilson’s War  and Casino Royale.

Julia Roberts plays a Houston socialite Joanne Herring.  The stiff coiffed hair and classic red nails are what I consider two major points for a socialite character.  However, what nailed it for me was this picture which I found dangerously real and funny…

Separating the lashes with a safety pin.  Of course, a lash comb is much safer but when you are playing a been-there-done-that woman who needs no excuse for her actions, this bit of makeup action really tops off the character’s beauty!  And, yes, it takes major makeup to create a certain character.  This means the makeup creates the illusion and will never look good in real life lighting!

The second set of pictures is of Eva Green as Vesper Lynd.  Even though Eva looked seductive and sexy with her smoky eyes and red lips; my favorite is the picture below.

Natural with just enough eyeshadow to shape her eyes for natural depth.  She also has a soft wash of blush and just a natural hint of tint to her lips.

Check out her palette she is supposedly using.  Would you be using MAC or a different brand if you were Vesper?  (My look consists more of the natural version of Vesper.  That is really all I need and really happy with.)

By the way, I thought Mads Mikkelsen was fabulous as Le Chiffre.  AND, I thought his brother Lars was excellent in Sherlock as Charles Magnussen, just enough creep and intelligence!

Have you any movie or tv makeup moments?
