The magic of make-up, photography and a good model

The editorial is a series of pictures with the same model in different ages, everything done with amazing make-up and lighting. I wonder how they have made the wrinkles.

De 10 à 60 ans
Vogue Paris November 2008
with Eniko Mihalik by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
styled by Carine Roitfeld, make-up by Lisa Butler

Remember IT IS THE SAME MODEL on every photo

Interesting. I have a hairdresser who is heavy, and not terribly pretty. On her license she has a picture of herself, and she is a knockout. Must have gone to one of those "Glamour Shot" places, and got the makeup, hairdo and the works. Makes a real difference.

Have you ever seen the papparazzi pix of stars walking around in real life? They look like anybody else!

@Robert Gentel,
I wasn't that wowed actually. The "10-year old" so doesn't look 10. The 60-yr-old doesn't "match" -- she wouldn't have that makeup and that sort of tightness to her jaw (only achievable with plastic surgery) and then have gray hair. And without gray hair she doesn't look 60.

agree soz re the wow factor.

The 60 year old looks like a woman who had too much plastic surgery. And what's the deal with the slightly "dottering" look on her face? That expression would look more appropriate on someone decades older.

The 20 year old and 30 year old picture both look like someone who could be 20 to me.

The 40 year old looks like someone who's had quite a bit of the old nip/tuck.

The 50 year old, eh, nothing much.

As a person ages, they get more than wrinkles. Muscles move around under the eye droops.

IMO, 20 and 30 ought to be reversed....

I don't see much different after 40.

I remember one of my first clients like it was yesterday -- she was a kind of heavy, plain-Jane person but she photographed so beautifully. I learned that what makes someone pretty in person doesn't always make them photogenic. I've since read several studies that support this.

A good makeup artist is an amazing talent. I've been lucky to work with a few.

Also, I remember seeing a book once where a makeup artist would take one celebrity and make them look like another celebrity, someone you would never think they resembled. Very cool. I'll have to see if I can find out what it was.

That is a cool series of photos, Robert. Thanks!

It's the poses I find interesting, not the looks, I hadn't realized noticed that stereotypical pose till seeing the series.
