When I lived in Los Angeles, some of my friends had a bridal makeup artist Manchester who did their makeup for special occasions. After all, when many of your special occasions are attended by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, you want to look as much like them as you possibly can.
On one particular occasion, the woman one friend went to must have just finished making up Angelina Jolie as, when my friend arrived at her salon, she went to work with creams, powders and brushes and applied makeup just like Angelina herself wears it.
Oddly, my friend looks a little bit like Jolie. The same figure, a similar height, and similar dark hair and alabaster skin. That day, when she left the makeup salon, she looked like her as well. Big pouting, dramatic lips, large kohl-lined eyes, and the most amazingly high cheek bones I had ever seen.
Apparently, makeup can do incredible things for a woman. It can even make her look like Angelina Jolie. Well, until it wears off, of course.
Which left me thinking. I wonder if Angelina Jolie actually looks like Angelina Jolie when she is not wearing makeup? Somehow, I doubt it.
