On the eve of the BAFTAs last month, we were thrilled to be invited by event supporters M.A.C. Cosmetics to sit in on a series of discussions featuring nominated artists talking about their work.
The Film Sessions featured BAFTA-nominated make-up and hair artists discussing the making of The Revenant, The Danish Girl, Carol and Brooklyn, sharing insights on character transitions, working with costume designers and bear attack wounds.
The artists appearing were Sian Grigg – personal make-up and prosthetics for Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant; Robert Pandini – hair department head, The Revenant; Jan Sewell – hair , make-up and prosthetic designer, The Danish Girl; Morna Ferguson – make-up department head, Brooklyn; Lorraine Glynn – hair department head, Brooklyn; and Morag Ross – personal make-up artist to Cate Blanchett, Carol.
