I would never do it for street or glamour makeup — not the least bit interested. I used to be a stage makeup artist, and I would be curious to apply makeup to someone for purposes of changing their appearance for a movie, or maybe even just to satisfy my curiosity. So … in my own fantasy world where I could play around with makeup on whomever I wanted, just to to see what kind of effect I could create, I think I’d want my subject (victim) to be Tilda Swinton; she’s already rather otherworldly in appearance — I’d be curious to see how far I could push that.

For some reason, my iPad autocorrects Swinton to Swindon. Lol

And Christine, your makeup artistry would be fantastic for a red carpet look. Don’t worry about “messing up” someone’s event!

YESSS! I learned much of what I know by examining how she did her makeup, and then working at recreating her fabulous avant garde looks!

No one comes to mind. First off, I’d be terrible at it and considering I don’t have cable, I am extremely out of the loop as to who is a celebrity these days. I may want my makeup to look like a particular celeb’s or be interested in a famous makeup artist doing my makeup but I have little interest in applying makeup to someone else lol

Probably Gwendoline Christie or Tilda Swinton, because both seem happy with minimal/non-glam makeup (though Christie favors a bold lip, as do I!) … but mostly because I think it’d be fun to meet them!

My knee-jerk response was “Chrissy Tiegen” because I would love to make her cheeks look a little less insane. But actually someone like Rossy de Palma or Caitin Stickels would be fun because you don’t encounter those faces so frequently. I feel like anybody else I mentioned, I could find his or her analogue among my friends.

James Charles, if he ever stops crying, lol. Enough with the drama, people. In reality, i’m With Alecto, rather do stage, no SE, and preferably men. Anthony Hopkins or Ian McKellan.

If I could go back in time, plus, have hands as steady as a surgeon, Yvonne DeCarlo, Grace Jones, Boy George and Cyndi Lauper. Yeah, I got trapped in the 80’s somewhat, with a flare for the avant garde and adventurous! These 4 above mentioned were the inspiration for taking my own makeup even further in that direction. So was David Bowie.

I would not call her a celebrity, but someone I respect.
She must have been photographed more than anyone else.
Queen Elizabeth II. Subtle makeup to show her beauty.

Wow how intimidating!
However , I would love to do Michele Obama’s just because I love her energy and It would be so inspiring to spend time with her.

My immediate response was Elizabeth Taylor because I would love to see those famous violet eyes. My daughter immediately said Michelle Obama. I read through responses and have to agree with Nancy, Cindy Lauper and Boy George would be really fun because they both love very bright makeup.

I’m loving reading others’ replies – Tilda Swinton and Michelle Obama are 2 great choices.

I can’t think of any women, to be honest, probably because all my “girl crushes” look better than I could manage to make them look. So, apologies for sounding like a pathetic teenaged fan-girl (I’m waaay past my teenaged years) but I’d vote for a “celebrity” that I would really like to meet face to face and get to talk to while I did their makeup and so it would be my huge crush, Richard Armitage. I wouldn’t want to be doing his makeup for roles like Thorin Oakenshield or Francis Dolarhyde, but just powdering him off for a appearance as himself (I could just about manage that) and chatting to him while I did this.

Probably my haircut twin/inspiration, Lauren Cohan-I’ve browsed her Instagram and she seems really sweet.

OOh, I kinda feel like you, but if the person would allow me and then correct me, Pat McGrath. And she doesn’t wear much makeup, so I think it would be difficult for me, since I really like applying colorful eyeshadow.
