Last night I finally got to delve into the fantastical world of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (3D no less). It was truly a feast for the eyes. And the make-up, oh the make-up!!!
Johnny Depp's the Mad Hatter was definitely over the top, but his character's make-up had a little bit of a 'put together by a committee' feel. It was almost a bit much (which I know is Tim Burton's style), but it lacked a cohesive feel.
I love me some Anne Hathoway. She's smart & talented. Her White Queen was fluffy & frilly & fabulous. The interesting decision was the make-up artist using bold brows & vibrant lips. My interpretation would have been softer- have everything glisten & glimmer & reflect the goodness of the character. The Brow Whisperer in me also wanted to fix her right brow in the movie(I'm telling you it's not just my job- it's my obsession!)
What was perfection? Helena Bonham Carter's Queen of Hearts. It was amazing to see the transformation. Her brows were covered with spirit gum & redrawn higher. Her hairline was brought up as well. What they were able to create visually with her character was a true testament to the talent of make-up artistry. Though the actual story was a little bland, I still feel it is definitely worth seeing in 3D just for the special effects- if that's your cup of tea!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
