Make-up department head Eryn Krueger Mekash had her work cut out for her on the 2012 Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, for which she was also the make-up artist to Lindsay Lohan, who stars as Elizabeth Taylor.

"We covered three decades for all the characters [in this film], adding subtle aging to Lindsay for later scenes using Tinsley Transfers and highlight and shadows. Other actors wore stretch-and-stipple old-age make-ups done with the PPI Green Marble SeLr technique. And our lead actor, Grant Bowler, wore full prosthetics as the aged Richard Burton, also Tinsley Transfers, done by myself and my key make-up Kim Ayers, who took care of Grant's make-up responsibilities throughout. Myriam Arougheti was my third and took care of all the background actors as well as some of our principals. This was a very low-budget 20-day shoot and we worked some incredible hours—there were many changes and challenges. Her [Lohan's] wig is by Beatrice De Alba, who was also the department head of hair for Liz & Dick. I am proud of what my team accomplished in an almost impossible schedule."
Skincare
Masqueology Lifting & Firming mask
Foundation
Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer in Neutral, Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in Neutral and Medium Beige
Concealer
AmazingCosmetics AmazingConcealer in Medium Beige under eye, on top of nose and next to nose blended onto cheek apples. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat in Luminous Ivory under eyes for touch-ups on set.”
Powder
T. LeClerc Pressed Powder in Translucide, but I rarely used powder on her.”
Bronzer
La Femme Pressed Powder in Dark Tan in cheek hollows and on the temples, the sides of nose and under the chin
Blush
Julie Hewett Cheekie in Peachie on top of her cheek bones. I changed the position of the blush in her 20s to the apples of her cheeks.”
Eye Shadow
“I used Ivoire from the Viseart Palette Eyeshadows in Basics on the brow bone and blended into the dark-brown shade from the same palette in the crease and pulled up in the outer corner. I also smudged the dark brown lightly under lash. For this look (one of probably 15 looks) I used the lavender shade from the Viseart Palette Eyeshadows in Pearl Bright on her lid. I used Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Navajo in the inner corners of the eye, pulled under the lashes.”
Eye Liner
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creamliner in Matte Black activated with Make Up For Ever Aqua Seal. “Eye liner was a precise shape for each time period—it was also heavy.”
Brows
“For Liz’s famous brows I started with Tricia Sawyer Brow Define in Dark Brown to get the shape—Liz’s brows were almost black, but I started with dark brown to map out the shape. Then I added Laura Mercier Brow Definer in Warm to create the arch and keep the shape. Finally I used Ardell Brow Powder Palette in Dark, using the darkest powder to go over the whole brow. I never had to touch them again all day.”
Mascara
Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black. “Lots of mascara on top for ҆50s and early ҆60s, both top and bottom for late ҆60s-҆80s.”
False Lashes
Ardell Lash Accents in 305, glued with Premiere Products Add-A-Lash.
Lips
“This look is Chanel Le Crayon Lèvres Precision Lip Definer in Rose Cuivre with M.A.C. Lipstick in Lady Danger. We used around 15 different colors of lipstick throughout [the film].”
Additional Information
“I used DuWop Revolotion Bronzing Body Moisturizer in Medium on her arms and legs over her spray tan, which she maintained throughout production...[Tattoo cover was] Premiere Products Skin Illustrator Flesh Tone Palette and Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme Palette with Premiere Products Green Marble SeLr over. Lindsay liked to help me cover her tattoos, and she did a great job—it definitely saved time!”
