character: Love Potion No. 9

Love Potion No. 9

A geeky biochemist with no luck at all with women visits a gypsy who gives him a love potion – an elixir which she claims can force anyone of the opposite sex to instantly fall in love with him. He shares the potion with his friend Diane (Sandra Bullock) and together they embark on a ‘scientific evaluation’ that gets out of hand.

Along the way Diane loses the frizz and her glasses, plucks her eyebrows and gets her teeth fixed – transforming as if by magic into Sandra Bullock.

The makeup

Sheri Short was the makeup designer; David B Miller was responsible for the makeup effects.
