Makeup has always played a key supporting role in the movies. Next year, Dior is giving it top billing with a documentary called Maquillage et la Cinema. The 12-minute documentary, coproduced by Dianne Vavra, Dior Beauty’s vice president of public relations, and Richard Brown, professor of motion picture studies at NYU, is a montage of the most memorable makeup moments on film, from the ritualistic applications depicted in Memoirs of a Geisha to Dustin Hoffman’s denouement in Tootsie, when he reveals himself as a man by throwing off his wig, peeling off his false eyelashes and wiping his face clean of foundation. The duo viewed and edited over 500 films for the finished product, which will be screened for editors in New York and Los Angeles early next year.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
