Burlesque, Burlesque a million times.  I’m still dying to find a pinky highlight just like Christina has in that movie which doesn’t look like it sits on the surface but is actually emitting light FROM the skin itself.

The top honor would have to go to Moulin Rouge, not only Nicole Kidman, but the ensemble characters, as well. Also, the movie Bent, in the Cabaret scenes (also an *amazing* film). Of course, I have to give a nod to David Bowie in Labyrinth.

Christineeee! What about Marie Antoinette? Well obviously they’re very theatrical looks, but you can get some good ideias and tone them down for “normal” life lol… 

Yes! the makeup from the movie “Dark Shadows” was awesome : D and also the Bella transformation into a Vampire!

The style and make-up in Sofia Coppola’s Marie-Antoinette. It is so gorgeous. That movie is ace in eye candy.

Not a movie, but I always love the makeup in Pretty Little Liars. There’s an array of styles, among a varied age range, which makes for great inspiration.But in terms of movies, I loved Audrey Hepburn’s makeup in How To Steal a Million. And in Adam West’s Batman, the makeup that Catwoman wore as Miss Kitka wore (especially her orange lips!) always stuck out to me.

Definitely!  Fave makeup looks include —Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits-The Fifth Element-Charlize Theron in Snow White & the Hunter and in Hancock-the Sirens in TRON -Natalie Portman in the strip club scenes in Closer

Oh yes ! Catherine Deneuve in ” Le dernier métro ” is beautiful, classy makeup ! So is Emmanuelle Béart in ” l’Enfer ” or even ” les Egarés “. I love Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind, very pretty makeup or makeups in David Lynch’s movies. Tim Burton’s characters are typically bipolar ( like him ! ), curiously enough it’s not what I prefer in makeup. I love Marlene Dietrich or Hitchcock’s characters, as for men the Joker is impressive, Star Wars makeups too. Blade Runner is my favourite, beautifully melancolic makeups in this great movie. I also love romantic makeups, in Bright Star for example. It’s pure and beaitiful.

We have very similar taste;) I think Béart in Manon was one of my first “wow” moments re: beauty, and clearly her makeup was minimal in that.

oh, i was so jealous of the makeup artists for the hunger games. they must have had so much fun with the capitol people…

All the time, particularly by FX makeup. It’s really easy to mess up that kind of stuff, so when it’s pulled off–WOW. I’m blown away by great prosthetics. Of course, “normal” makeup is often breathtaking as well and gives me inspiration for my own makeup!

Every time a human is turned into a vampire in the Vampire Diaries, the make up of the character changes and I like how they look darker, more mysterious and sexier afterwards. I mean, this does not really impress me, but I think it’s a good example of how a little make up can change the whole appearance of a person.

Yes, I have been and later is freeking hard to find out which color of lipstick they are wearing, which shade brand etc

This question interests me because I am compelled to watch The Holiday, with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslett, every time it’s on not only because I like the movie itself but also because I just love the makeup on these two women in it!  Nothing as obvious as the artistry in Alice in Wonderland but they just glowed.  I am not aware of makeup in any other movie otherwise unless it’s a significant part of it as in AiW.
