old-age makeups: Warehouse 13

‘Age Before Beauty’

In the episode ‘Age Before Beauty’ the rapid ageing trope strikes again. An elderly woman rants at a model at a fashion show and then collapses and dies – at the autopsy she is identified by her breast implants as a nineteen-year-old model.

Mika (Joanne Kelly) and Pete go undercover as a model and her manager but Myka falls victim to the artifact of the week but fortunately the effects are reversed just in time.

Maribeth Knezev was the makeup department head; Paul Jones (Paul Jones Effects Studio) was the prosthetic makeup designer. I’m grateful to Paul for the use of these images.
