Anónimos: Paula Vázquez

Model and TV presenter Paula Vázquez was unrecognisable as an Argentinan theatrical diva after a five-hour makeup session for the Spanish celebrity ‘fakeover’ show Anónimos shown on Spanish TV channel La Sexta.

Paula spoken about the ‘punishing’ makeup process:

La verdad es que me lo pasé bárbaro. Lo más duro es el maquillaje, hora y media para hacerte un molde de la cara y luego, el día que te lo colocan, seis horas de maquillaje. La máscara te la colocan por piezas y, sobre la marcha, van aumentando zonas, perfilando y maquillando.

Nacho Díaz and Óscar del Monte (Plan 9 FX) were responsible for all the celebrity transformations on Anónimos.

We did Platgel 10 silicone appliances, coloring with skin illustrator and stacolors and glued on with telesis 5. The application process were 5 hours.

I am grateful to Plan 9 FX for the images of Paula; I hope to include more of their makeups from the show soon.
