Meet the Makeup Artist Team from “Orange is The New Black” - Part 2

September 24, 2013

Go behind the scenes with the genius makeup team of the hit Netflix show – Orange is the New Black.

The Pro Team at MAKE UP FOR EVER met with the artists behind the hit Netflix show – Orange is the New Black.  The genius makeup team of Michal Bigger, Karen Reuter, Sunday Englis, Mandy Bisesti, Ingrid Okola and Josh Turi share their inspiration, love of makeup and why they do what they do in a three-part interview.

What's your best technique for concealing under-eye darkness?

  • Michal: A good Director of Photography! My makeup favorite for under-eye darkness is a combo of several things. When all else fails I bring in the big guns – MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer.
  • Mandy: I concur with Michal!!

What do you do to ensure that makeup stays put for hours at a time?

  • Michal: The brand is very important.  In general, we use HD Foundation for our show. Not loading up on moisturizer before the foundation is important, too.
  • Karen:  MAKE UP FOR EVER HD primer
  • Josh: A properly prepped face for one. Clean, oil free, and primed.

What is the most important beauty advice that you can give to women?

  • Michal: Appreciate yourself. Beauty truly shines out from the person within.
  • Karen: Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, styles,…embrace who you are and stop comparing yourself to photo shopped models and actresses. Aside from that…take good care of your skin
  • Mandy: That healthy is beautiful. Be healthy in mind, body & spirit!

What are some common beauty mistakes that women make?

  • Michal: Doing their makeup in an ill lit bathroom, too much under-eye concealer, making themselves look older by putting on too much makeup… makeup can work against you as well as enhance you. Also, breaking the rules can be a creative woman’s asset. I love it when I see someone expressing themselves with makeup.
  • Josh: My biggest pet peeve is not blending. Please do not stop at the chin.
  • Ingrid: Too many women focus on covering the negatives and not enhancing the positive.  Also many women don't take off all their makeup properly so their skin can breathe at night.
