Maybe Once Upon a Time? That’s the only one that came to me! I don’t watch a lot of TV shows 🙁

South Park! LOL! OMG tho really? Dream job! So the obvious answer would be American Horror Story right? IF I got to pick I’d choose based on who I’d get to work with… so it’d be like… The Facts of Life in the 80s! Haha! Or Supernatural… just to be around Jared and Jensen and “accidentally” drop my brushes in their laps LOL

Hmm, my makeup skills aren’t ready for TV, but I think it would be fun to do some zombies on Walking Dead -pile on tons of pale foundation, a big dusting of translucent white powder, black eye shadow all around the eyes, add zombie lips, and slashes of red lipstick on the face to look like gashes. Finish off with a big puff of gray powder from gray eye shadow. No need to wash or style the hair, the crazier looking, the better. And you don’t have to worry about being perfect or precise with your makeup, because it’s suppose to look messed up 🙂

Um, it’s kind of over now, but I’d definitely do Stargate 😉 Then you get a nice mix of ‘normal’ makeup, and more sci-fi/SFX stuff! 😀

I don’t watch a lot of TV. I have NetFlix and that’s it (by choice). Maybe “Mad Men”…I think the show is boring (I couldn’t get past 2 or 3 episodes), but its visual aesthetics are amazing. All the glam retro makeup looks would be fun to do. I also think it would be fun to help out on The Walking Dead making people look like zombies.

Sex in the City would have been soooo fun. Four different looks, and all those fabulous clothes to go with them. I think SJP would be a cool person to hang out with, too.

Hmm, probably New Girl! It would be amazing to do both Zooey Deschanel and Hannah Simone’s faces since there’s such a stark contrast in features and skin color. So many options for the both of them!

I’d also have said The Vampire Diaries, but I don’t know how to do SFX makeup, so… 🙁 😆

maybe an American Horor Story:freak show.I don’t watched anything expect crime series these days.kinda tired of love triangle in every shows

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, it’s an Australian murder mystery series that I watch on Netflix. It’s set in the 1920’s and I love the make up and costumes. If I worked on Once, I would definitely scale back on Snow’s eyebrows.

American Horror Story or Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. AHS is contemporary makeup while Penny Dreadful would be that Victorian look. I would make it a Goth/Victorian look if I had the chance. Great question MimiT.

Definitely Pretty Little Liars. I love that show so much! My first choice would be Gossip Girl if it still came on. The fashion and glamour in that show was to die for

Like you, I don’t watch much TV. I guess it’s a good thing, I have a hard enough time with my OWN makeup, let alone trying to do someone else’s.

Going back in time….. I would have LOVED to do make-up on the t.v. version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! 😀 These days, either Walking Dead, Grimm, or something that requires pretty fantasy-type/ avant garde make-up. Once Upon a Time? I don’t watch that show, but it they do really fun make-up it would be that!

My first thought was also Once Upon A Time because you do both glam and FX makeup. Thinking along those lines I also thought of Grimm, Constantine and of course American Horror Story.
