Shailene Woodley Adrift Special Effects Makeup

Shailene Woodley's Special Effects Makeup Will Have You Saying, "Ouch!"

such a warm welcome from our hair and makeup team today. #adrift, let's do this.

Don't worry, Shailene Woodley is OK. However, I'm not sure if I am after seeing her insanely realistic special effects makeup. The actress is currently shooting Adrift, a drama about a woman who must save herself and her fiancé after a violent hurricane leaves them stranded in the Pacific Ocean. This incredible story is based on the experience of a woman named Tami Oldham, who survived Hurricane Raymond in 1983.

To get into character, Woodley documented her pretty gnarly SFX makeup on Instagram. "Such a warm welcome from our hair and makeup team today," Woodley wrote in her caption. The pictures show a jagged cut on the top of her forehead and another hook-shaped one on her shin. Woodley also snapped a pic of the cut being applied by two artists. It looks like such a time-consuming process. I can't wait to see the end result on screen! (Except I'll probably end up closing my eyes during the gory parts.)

If you liked these pictures and don't want to sleep tonight, check out some of the most hauntingly beautiful SFX makeup 'grams out there.
