After the Sunset

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant was not the first time Salma Hayek wore a beard in a movie.

Max and his partner Lola Cirillo (Salma Hayek) pull off their last big job with Lola disguising herself as a dreadlocked squeegee man to read the VIN number of an FBI agent’s car.

Although Lola’s disguise clearly uses prosthetic makeup she is shown removing it as a pull-off mask when she meets Max.

Then they retire to an island hideaway but the FBI agent shows up, and there’s this really big jewel on a cruise ship offshore.

The opening sequence establishes Lola’s expertise in disguise and electronics but then they give her pretty much nothing to do for the rest of the movie.

This was just a really awful movie.

The makeup

Julie Pearce was the makeup department head; Matthew Mungle was responsible for Salma’s prosthetic makeup disguise.
