Sometimes we need a break from all the collagen and Botox crammed into Real Housewives plotlines and switch on a show that gives us some good, old-fashioned fantasy. Whether the setting is a 1960s New York City advertising agency or a mythical medieval world, a show with some false lashes, good weaves, or a killer lip color hook us as much as a jaw-dropping plot twist.
Since we appreciate the hair and makeup on our fictional shows, we decided to track down the hairstylists and makeup artists on the most popular TV shows to learn the secrets on how they create those iconic looks.
Here, you'll find out the product that the Game of Thrones makeup artist always has on hand, what three lip colors create the perfect red pout on Revenge, the secret weapon American Horror Story's hair pro used to beat humidity, the two items that the New Girl makeup team uses every day, and so much more.
