But They Share . . . a Lot
It's no secret that many contestants on The Bachelor end up becoming friends outside of the show. In some cases, those close bonds may begin with beauty. Former contestants, including Rachel Lindsay, have said they arrived at the mansion with limited makeup skills and bare bones routines. "On the show, it's because of the girls' multiple makeup bags that I actually now know how to apply makeup," she told POPSUGAR in a previous interview. By the time the women leave the mansion (or whatever city the show whisked them off to that episode), their skills are fine-tuned.
For really lucky contestants, beauty professionals may be among the group. Season 23's Elyse Michelle, a professional makeup artist, often shared her knowledge with other women in the house.
