Fire the Makeup Artist
I like some TV. Especially when a show is well written, entertaining and has a really good cast. The Mentalist is one of those shows.
The first season was great. The second season?
I have a bone to pick with the person who hired the rogue makeup artist and then allowed the to go nuts with the female cast members.
I am confident that the hideous make up jobs are the first thing noticed by anyone watching the show.
The makeup person is seems to have been beamed in from another decade judging by the Joan Crawford eyebrows, the blue eye shadow, the bright orange and red lipsticks and rouge. It is deeply distracting and disturbing.
Could it be my HDTV? Maybe I just didn’t notice the horrible makeup on my old TV. I don’t think that’s it.
The girls, Robin Tunney and Amanda Righetti, also got new school hairdos. They look like they are all ready for their first day of elementary school. That’s another clash. Infantile hairdos do not go with Joan Crawford makeup! What is with this really crazy shit?
The show has lots of interesting outdoor locations. The makeup looks even worse in the sunlight.
Something has to be done.
If only I could get a letter to Tunney and Righetti. Their careers are being ruined by this hack makeup person(s).
