What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

All of mine stem from things I saw as a child:

 

I loved it when Elizabeth Taylor wrote "No Sale" in lipstick on a mirror in "Butterfield 8"

And Bette Davis's crazy makeup in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?"

I always loved Homer Simpson's invention of the "makeup gun"

And I still want that machine that did Judy Jetson's hair on "The Jetsons."  I couldn't find a pic.

@Ispend2much6 Love it!  Love her!  Thanks!

Helena Bonham Carter's entire look was so ethereal in Room With a View; the makeup was subdued, but definitely contributed to her ability to express her emotions without saying a word.

A Room with a View movie costumes, love the lace gloves and all white Edwardian fashion.

I'm sure I can come up with many, but off the top of my head, the one that struck me the most growing up was Sandy's transformation on Grease, despite the fact that they didn't actually show the makeover:

"Tell me about it, stud.""Tell me about it, stud."

In high school, the scene in Untamed Heart where Marisa Tomei uses a lighter to melt her eyeliner was the coolest thing ever!

More recently, my daughter and I loved watching the opening sequence for PLL, even though it was a little morbid:

@Tamara76 Good call on Sandy from "Grease!"  I was hoping someone would post it!

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@Tamara76  How could we forget about Sandy!  This transformation was a big deal back then.

OK, here's a nice one to balance things out:

Can you believe I used to try to do my hair like Fran Drescher?!

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@greeneyedgirl107  You weren't alone!  I wish I still had that much and nicely textured hair.

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@Ispend2much6 I had a doll of her that said, "The bigger the hair, the smaller the hips look!"

I just thought of a couple of unfortunate ones from "Mommie Dearest:

@greeneyedgirl107  Would you believe that this was the first movie I thought of when I saw this thread.  The beginning scenes in particular when she is going through her intense routine.

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@darkiceis Interesting!  I think there are a lot of iconic scenes from that movie!  I think my mother was confused about it, though, and thought it was a documentary on how to parent!  I read Christina Crawford's book and enjoyed it.  Did you watch "Feud: Bette and Joan?"  I loved it!

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

I was in love with this scene.  Drew looked so beautiful and magical.

OMG @darkiceis! this is my favorite movie! I LOVED this scene and Drew Barrymore was so gorgeous in this scene! So magical! 

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@darkiceis so iconic!

Remember how bad Mad and Hel's makeup from "Death Becomes Her" wound up at the end b/c they were spray painting themselves?

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

 Mine would be the "Geisha transformation" scene from Memoirs of a Geisha...the makeup application is fascinating, but also the cinematography is incredibly executed.

@Madeline7 @AMK721 For some reason I don't recall that scene from the movie - but I loved the book!  If you enjoy that genre, I recommend reading Lisa See (she has several good books) and Amy Tan (I liked The Joy Luck Club movie better than the book which is super rare, but I adored The Kitchen God's Wife and The Bonesetter's Daughter was decent).

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@greeneyedgirl107thanks for the book recommendations!  Always on the hunt for a good read.

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

@Madeline7that is my all time favorite book.  I loved the movie too. Agree the makeup was stunning.

Re: What are some of your favorite beauty moments from movies/TV?

I have to post one more, from "The Little Mermaid:"
