THE ARTISAN FALL 2019 • 55 hair to hide sharply edged beards and goatees as they didn't use electric trimmers back then. We also had to fi ll in piercings, cover up tattoos, and remove of all nail polish, eyelash extensions, and anything that is "make-up as we know it today."• Harriet was fi lmed entirely on location in Virginia and it was a challenge to work with the natural conditions of rain, wind, mud and insects. To prepare, I used a lot of long-wear and alcohol-based products so the make-up would last through our grueling shoot days and nights. I was also constantly on-watch in between scenes to make sure the weather didn't affect the consistencies we would see on screen. Despite the varying environments, our whole crew came together to support each other as we made this fi lm, and I would like to give special thanks to my two key assistants, Carla Chao Brenholtz and Ashley Fetterman. I am so proud to have been able to honor history and these important fi gures through my make-up designs. From top: Joe Alwyn stars as Gideon Brodess; Jennifer Nettles as Eliza Brodess; Monáe and Erivo.
