According to the FX Guide, Lola VFX initially planned to achieve “Old Peggy” by filming Atwell with no make-up, "do a further shoot with old age prosthetic make-up applied," and then "carry out a digital facial re-projection of the ‘old age make-up Atwell’ onto her original body." However, due to the prostetics “restricting” the British actress’ performance, the Captain America: Winter Soldier crew resumed the make-up process with a young actress that resembles Hayley Atwell. 

Then an elderly actress was cast and brought in “with the intention of seeing what real skin looked like; translucency, how does the skin sag, how does it move as she talks? said Williams. “I said, ‘Let’s try something that we’ve never done before.’ I wanted to take the performance of the elderly woman that we had shot in a rig with eight cameras and project the skin onto the original Hayley footage that had been shot on set. We took a still frame of the skin and tracked it onto the original photography, and it looked so good. The way we did it – it was amazing – you could still see Hayley, her eyes, her mouth, her underlying structure, but we just lifted the creases and cracks and age from the elderly woman and transposed it onto Hayley’s young face.” 

For an even more in-depth explaination as to how the Lola visual effects team created “Old Peggy,” make the jump over to the FX Guide. However, you can see a shot of Hayley Atwell’s Winter Soldier scene compared to the finished product, and other official stills via Luma Pictures.

In Britain, make-up might have been hard to find, but it was worn with pride and became a symbol of the will to win. ‘Put your best face forward,’ encouraged a 1942 Yadley advertisement in Churchillian tones. ‘War, Woman and Lipstick' ran a celebrated Tangee campaign. Bright red was the favourite wartime colour for lips and nails and lipstick names were often patriotic: Louis Phillippe's Patriotic Red; Fighting Red by Tussy and Grenadier - The new Military red created by Tattoo, effective with air force blue and khaki.

During wartime, a subtle change had taken place in the marketing and the perception of make-up. It was no longer about making a woman seem ‘dainty’, but making her look and feel strong. Rosie the Riveter became a wartime icon in the USA, representing the six million women working in factories for the war effort. [Rockwell] portrayed Rosie as a vast figure in work dungarees, her short sleeves revealing arms the size of prize-winning hams. Behind her hangs the stars and stripes, squashed carelessly under her feet is a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and on her mighty lap rests a lunch box and a huge riveting machine like an enormous gun. [Her] henna red curls, lipsticked mouth and painted finger nails stress her femininity, emphasising the fact that make-up too was a weapon of war [Madeleine Marsh, Compact and Cosmetics: Beauty from the Victorian Times to the Present Day]

I bet he would carefully count out 50 stars to wear.




Sometimes body modification is just a way of telling yourself “this is still my house, I paint the walls and and I hang the art because I’m the one who owns it”

Same with makeup.

Men having opinions on women’s fashion/makeup/grooming when they literally define masculinity by not caring about those exact subjects, and actually pride themselves on it, is so fucking ridiculous.

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. 
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.

During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes. (x)

I put these together because I am sick of reading girls putting themselves down on tumblr because they don’t look like any of these women. There are things called high end cosmetics and photoshop that make these women look perfect by hiding their blemishes and wrinkles. The truth is they can afford far better makeup than you. The stuff they use is almost magic. And we all know the things they can do with photographs these days. Strip all that away and they’re just like you. You also have to figure how many of these women had cosmetic surgery. There is no so such thing as a perfect and flawless looking person.

You know what’s worse about this though? We see these pictures under captions like ‘SHOCKING pictures of celebrities without makeup’, and ‘Ten HORRIFYING photos of celebs’. And you know what that teaches us? That teaches us that a woman who isn’t immaculately made up is something to be feared and reviled.

Frankly, I’m not sure which is more more worrying: the idea that we should all strive to achieve unattainable aesthetic perfection, or the idea that we are unacceptable in our natural state.

(And as an endnote, you can be sure as hell that nobody’s kicking up this kind of fuss about male celebrities looking normal)

District 11

District 12

So Covergirl has created a line of makeup for the new Hunger Games movie, and made a look for each of the Districts. The result is pretty awesome. Pretty sure I would rock 12 without a thought and District 4 just looks outstanding. 

These all look cooler than any of the tributes do in the parades. Maybe CG should be the next tributes’ stylists.

^^^SERIOUSLY i am so peeved by the design in these movies and i am glad i’m not the only one noticing it.

also: not only props to CG for great original designs but also for KNOWING HOW TO MARKET IT?!

you have a whole world built on selling kids murdering eachother and whoever’s in charge of marketing doesn’t really get it
