Today's notes touched on make-up artist Dorothy Ponedel, and the work she did on Judy Garland.  Judy generally looked lovely in films, and Dorothy must have done a great job, but I want to mention one in which I thought her make-up was horrible... one in which Ponedel apparently was not the make-up artist.  The movie was 'A Star is Born', a fabulous picture that I watched for the second time a couple of nights ago. The major makeup flaw, one that is quite common and which I absolutely detest, is applying lipstick beyond the lip line.  Now I realize that bright red lipstick was popular back in those days, and seen as very glamorous, but when it's applied well beyond the lip line, as it was below Judy's lower lip, it can make a woman look like she has a clown's mouth.  Ugggh!  I realize Judy had quite full lips, so perhaps it was just the proportion... too heavy on the lower lip.  She looked a lot better in 'Meet Me in St. Louis'.
