On December 6, the premiere of the third season of "The Amazing Mrs. Maisel" took place - a series that has already managed to fall in love with many viewers, and even received a Golden Globe in 2017 and an Emmy in 2018. The plot revolves around the continuation of the story of the main character Midge Maisel, who became a successful stand-up comedian after her divorce from her husband. From series to series, her life changes abruptly, only her impeccable appearance remains unchanged. The stylists and make-up artists of the project definitely did their best and successfully created the image of the 50s, when a bob hairstyle, porcelain skin and red lips were in fashion.
“Midge has been following the same style since she was 12 years old, which is part of her character. She changes a little over the course of her life, but it's almost imperceptible,”stylist Patricia Regan told Allure. The BeautyHack editors read her interview and highlighted several interesting points about how the image of the main character was created.
In the series, the actress who played Mrs. Maisel wears a wig. However, stylist Patricia Regan styles it like real hair. And he does it in the same way as many women in the 50s: with the help of curlers. And in order to give the strands shine, Regan uses two products: Setting Lotion, Lotta Body and Conditioning Hairdressing, Alberto VO5 (they are sold on Amazon). After drying and curling, the stylist gently brushes the wig with the Mason Pearson Brush with combined bristles.
In Mrs. Maisel's makeup, only the shade of lipstick changes, which is selected depending on her image. “When she performs and wears a black dress, we go for a bright red lipstick,” says Patricia Regan. "Otherwise, the shade of lipstick depends on what Midge is wearing."
It is known that in the early seasons, makeup artists used YSL lipsticks. For the new season, they opted for ILIA in Flame for the red-lipped look, and Kjaer Weis in Attection for the casual look. Also, make-up artists often mixed different shades of lipsticks among themselves in order to achieve the desired tone.
In the 50s, there was a fashion for perfectly matte porcelain skin, so when creating makeup for the heroine, there was no question of any highlighters. Makeup artists used Skin Foundation, Bobbi Brown and Hi Definition Perfecting Powder, Chantecaille.
Eyes and eyebrows
Midge's eye makeup was as simple as possible: the makeup artists eyed the eyelids with a black pencil, but did not draw an arrow, and they also painted eyelashes with Chanel mascara. An important point was to recreate the eyebrows of that time: rather thin with a slightly rounded shape.
By the way! In an interview, the makeup artist noted that in the third season, Mrs. Maisel will have several changes in appearance. And the viewer will definitely notice them!
