Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite show? We got the scoop from top makeup artists on shows like "Modern Family" and "Community"
With several gigs usually going on at once, actors have extremely busy schedules. So more often than not, they show up on set with red eyes, dark circles, and heavy lids. Since the HD cameras pick up these imperfections like it's their job, it's up to the makeup artist to get rid of all traces of a sleepless night. Here are some of their tricks:
• Pat on a small bit of cucumber gel around your eyes to refresh and brighten the delicate area (try Yes to Cucumbers Eye Love Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel, 14.99). "We also use the Clarisonic Opal, $185, which massages a de-puffing serum under the eyes to reduce any swelling," says Lljubo-O'Brien.
• With red or bloodshot eyes, Anderson swears by blue eye drops, like Innoxa French Blue Eye Drops, $15.99. The blue counteracts yellow or red tints, so just a few drops will immediately make your eyes look whiter.
• "Use a peach-colored eyeliner on the inner corner of the eyes and along the waterline (inside of your rim)," says Anderson. This opens up your eyes and makes you look more awake. She uses the Make Up For Ever Double Sided Concealer Pencil, $18, on her actors.
