54 • THE ARTISAN FALL 2017 I was so delighted to be asked to DH Suburbicon last year. I have had the honor of working with Mr. Clooney on many projects in the past. This one was right up my alley, as it took place in a suburban small town in the 1950s, based upon a true story in Levittown, PA. The look was middle-class suburban as far as make-up. More Sears catalogue than Vogue. The women never left without their hair done and lipstick. Red lipstick. The men were groomed, neat facial hair and short sideburns. Oscar Isaac came in with a moustache and we groomed for the period. Most of the men did not wear foundation for this film and the ladies were styled with a period red lipstick (I have a few in my make-up collection: "Belle," "Film" and "Rouge" that are perfect!). Karimah Westbrook, who plays the new neighbor, had period brows and lips but kept her look simple and not too done. Julianne Moore plays a duo role as twin sisters, Rose and Margaret. Her look was created by Elaine Offers. The contrast Suburbicon WELCOME TO between the two sisters was amazing. Fantastic job. Matt Damon's make-up was designed by Chrissie Beveridge, who has been with him on many films. She created his beat up look and all the artful blood splatters and cuts. I love watch- ing both of these masters of their craft work. My core team was Aurora Bergere, Maha Lessner and Eleanor Sabaduquia. I want to thank them for doing such an outstanding job. We had many excellent daily artists as well, who deserve a shout-out. Our trailer was so fun and collab- orative. I have to say it was one of my favorites!

The film follows an African-American family living in a white neighbourhood and the badger- ing and struggles they experienced day-to-day. They managed to survive under the pressure of the situation they found themselves.
