The Star Treatment

Have you ever wondered how much work that goes into making the people on your television and movie screen look the way they do? Last year I spent a year on the set of an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster, and I can tell you this: it’s no cakewalk. Everyone involved in the process is constantly bombarded with powder puffs and eyeliner appliers. There’s scarcely a square foot in the movie lot that isn’t occupied by a Manchester makeup artist of some sort. After seeing the amount of makeup involved in making the stars look presentable on the big screen, I’ve started feeling a bit more confident in my own appearance. When all is done, I think everyone should have the same experience I did, in order to break down some of the barriers and facades of our rat race modern ‘image is everything’ themed society.
