How The Grinch Stole Christmas

With the holidays rapidly approaching, Christmas movies are in full force! Switch on the TV and you are guaranteed to see at least a few movies playing right now. One of our favorites here at CMS is How The Grinch Stole Christmas starring Jim Carrey.

With approximately 8,000 Makeup appliances, Ve Neill, Joel Harlow, Bill Corso, Rick Baker and Leonard Engelman are just a few of the Makeup Artists who transformed actors and actresses into the crazy characters of Whoville. The prosthetic makeup Jim Carrey wore to play the Grinch took about 8 hours per day to apply. He wore the makeup in total for 92 days! The film was nominated for makeup work in multiple award ceremonies and ended up winning an Oscar for Best makeup, held by Rick Baker and Gail Rowell-Ryan. This year, keep an eye out for the extensive makeup work on the latest batch of holiday films!
