We’re back this week with 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.
