Watching TV over this Christmas holiday, I noticed that many female villains, femmes-fatal, dark witches or just thoroughly nasty women were given full face make up.
I’m sure you know what I mean- deep lipstick red or plum with black eye-lined eyes and dark smoky eyeshadows.
I wondered why? Then I had a thought- maybe the costume/makeup design teams were once upon a time young impressionable teenagers, insecure in their femininity and awkward in their ability to apply make- up,
Maybe, they were intimidated, by highly made-up cosmetic counter assistants in department stores, when they plucked up the courage to approach them!
Or maybe that was just me!
