Make-up artist Eryn Krueger Mekash faced challenges with Drew Barrymore on the roller derby film Whip It. “She was directing, prepping, doing a thousand things at once and she wasn’t always available to come in the make-up trailer for a proper sit-down in front of a mirror,” Mekash said. “There were times I did Drew’s make-up in the bleachers of the roller derby track and did touch-ups while she was setting shots. Another issue was making sure the actual bruises she got while skating were covered for continuity—they were always changing. The big issue we had on all the girls was keeping their make-up on all day while they were skating. It was a very humid summer in Michigan and the track was blisteringly hot.” Nonetheless, Mekash said, the film was a great experience.
