Uma Thurman‘s make-up artist has spoken out to clear up confusion about why she looked ‘different’ on the red carpet earlier this week.
Despite many speculating that the gorgeous actress may have had some sort of cosmetic surgery done, Troy Surratt insists that it was all just an experimental make-up look.
Uma, 44, stepped out for the premiere of ‘The Slap’ earlier this week showing off visibly smoother skin to that of a month a go, causing mixed reactions from fans who were either ‘upset’ over her changed appearance, or were supporting her and saying she could do what she liked, really.
However, her make-up artist, Troy, has now waded into the discussion over Uma’s glowing skin, explaining he’s “surprised” by all the speculation and that it was just an mascara-less “effortless parisienna chic” look that he created for her.
He told People: “Frankly, I’m quite surprised by the conversation.
“By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression. I think that women should feel open and free to experiment with different beauty looks — it’s only makeup, at the end of the day it all washes off.”
He makes a ruddy good point, actually. If people want to try out a new look, who is anyone to judge, eh?
He also shared the secrets behind the look, explaining: “I wanted to give Uma a statement lip balanced by a more feathered brow.
“Uma and I discussed creating a look that was more editorial with soft natural lashes. As a makeup artist I’ve grown a bit tired of all of the lash-y looks and fake eyelashes that we’ve been seeing on the red carpet for some time now.”
“I prepped Uma’s skin by massaging with Creme de la Mer The Concentrate. I applied a glowing foundation using a Beauty Blender for a super natural look. When the makeup was finished we misted her face with Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist for added radiance.”
So there you go.
Let’s hope all the speculation doesn’t put Uma from experimenting with other beaut make-up looks in the future.
