Look-alike makeups: Creating a likeness

Perhaps, the hardest task for both the makeup artist and the actress is achieving a likeness of a living or famous person. We may not know the truth, or anything much, about them but we’re pretty sure that we know what they looked like.

Some of the images in this section, particularly in the show business areas, are taken from photoshoots rather than movies or TV programmes: actresses, or maybe their publists, seem to have a thing about recreating the looks of their predecessors. Also as well as including before and after images of each actress, I will also include images of the person who’s image is being recreated so you that you can do a three-way comparison.

Many of the brief biographical notes in this section have been sourced from the wonderful Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
