The Big Little Lies Scene That Took the Most Preplanning
Everybody loves a good party scene (especially when it includes endings like the one in last season's finale). This one is no different: "One of my favorite makeup scenes is the disco party at Renata's house [which airs later this season]," she said. "On a regular day, the makeup department had 10 artists, eight of which were personals to our leading six ladies. For the disco party week, I had 18 additional makeup artists each day helping me with our principal cast and over 100 extras every day that all had to be seen by the makeup department."
The scene also required a lot of preplanning between her, costume designer Alix Friedberg, and department head of hair Jose Zamora. "The three of us worked on Sharp Objects together, so we all jive really well together. I did a lot of research on the disco era, late-night Pinterest and Google searches, and walking the aisles of Michaels craft store."
