Uma Thurman’s make-up artist is “quite surprised” by plastic surgery rumours surrounding the actress, saying he skipped mascara and false eyelashes to create a “more editorial” look.
Thurman has been surrounded by the plastic surgery rumours after she looked different and almost unrecognisable on the red carpet of ‘The Slap’ premiere. “Frankly, I’m quite surprised by the conversation,” said Troy Surratt.
“By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression. I think that women should feel open and free to experiment with different beauty looks – it’s only makeup, at the end of the day it all washes off,” Surratt added.
Surratt said he created an “effortless Parisienne chic” look on Thurman by focusing on her lips and complexion. “I wanted to give Uma a statement lip balanced by a more feathered brow. Uma and I discussed creating a look that was more editorial with soft natural lashes. As a make-up artist I’ve grown a bit tired of all of the lash-y looks and fake eyelashes that we’ve been seeing on the red carpet for some time now.”
