DESCRIPTION: We’re back this week with the absolutely incredible, Angie Wells, who is a two-time Emmy nominated makeup artist, IATSE member, MUAHS Guild Award, and Critics Choice Award nominee. You’ve seen her incredible work in MUDBOUND, HARRIET, SYLVIE’S LOVE, and most recently, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN with Carey Mulligan.

We talk about how she came to the industry and her many talents including how she’s not only an amazing makeup artist but also an accomplished jazz singer. She also shares her back story including how she met her mentor, Marietta Carter-Narcisse.

As for the ✨LOOKS✨, Angie shares what it was like to work as the Makeup Department Head on Emerald Fennell’s Oscar-nominated film, Promising Young Woman, when the makeup is its own character, creating and executing DIY-style looks with Carey, some of the products she worked with (shoutout to #Kosas!), and as always so.much.more.

Topics & Work Discussed:
Angie Wells was the Makeup Department Head on the Oscar-nominated film, “Promising Young Woman”

Angie is not only a makeup artist but also a jazz singer

Angie first worked with Carey Mulligan in 2017 on Mudbound (Dir. Dee Rees)

With incredible care and creativity, Angie made callouses out of golden raisins, so Carey did not have to bite into anything toxic especially since she was breastfeeding her child still at the time.

When it came to PYW, the makeup was truly a character.

Products used

Angie was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for Best Makeup on PYW and had a very fun way of getting ready for the COVID-friendly event.

If we get to dress up for Halloween this year, I’m calling that Nurse Cassie will be a VERY popular costume. Angie goes into detail on how to achieve the makeup look.

Mariette Carter-Narcisse, educator/makeup artist/beautypreneur, was Angie’s mentor
