period: Shakespeare in Love

Shakespeare in Love

Elizabeth was a minor (but important) character in the movie Shakespeare in Love and was played – with a twinkle in her eye – by Judi Dench.

But even for a cameo role she was required to undergo an extensive makeup job as seen above.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s male disguise from the movie is in the disguise section.

The makeup

Lisa Westcott was the film’s hair and makeup designer and Veronica Brebner was senior hair and makeup artist.
