A TV Makeup Moment Brought to You by The Strain

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog.*


This makeup moment isn't anything like the Benedict "Boots-No7" Cumberbatch moment nor the Sean "I-lived-until-the-end-of-this-one" Bean moment.  No, this one is a true makeover makeup moment from Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain

The Strain is about  Dr. Ephraim Goodweather who heads a CDC team called to investigate a strange outbreak on a what appears to be a lifeless plane on the runway of JFK airport.  Some of the passengers survive the strange trauma and are quarantined only to be released and turned into some ancient vampire breed.  I don’t mind vampires in the form of Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries) but these look like they have mistakenly been genetically modified with the genes of a geoduck!

The show has a stellar cast of actors: Corey Stall (looks completely different with hair), Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, and Richard Sammel.

The series has excellent SFX thanks to Steve Newburn.  The effects are graphic but it is just stress-relieving fun!  Yet, in all this violence there is a moment when beauty takes center stage.

In episode three “Gone Smooth”, there is a lovely scene of pure male vanity.



Look at all that Kett Cosmetics.












All that primping! Finally, it's showtime!!!

A bit of primping for a guy is okay but if he is taking longer than you or using pro brand cosmetics and prosthetics to look the way he does; he isn’t your dream boat!

That is the end of the beauty moment, but there is another iconic moment for the series.

In episode eight called "Creatures of the Night", the story centers around customers who are stuck at a convenience store during a vampire invasion.  As I was watching this, I thought one guy looked so much like Rick Baker!



Then, I saw his trademark ponytail.  Yep, that is Rick Baker!!!

What did you think of this makeup moment? Does it make you want to try Kett Cosmetics? Or do you think that is just too much vanity for a vampire to have?  Better yet, what is Rick Baker doing in a convenience store?

XOXO,

Olivia
