White out.

Cybill Shepherd on Moonlighting demanded that she be photographed with “cheesecloth” on the lens, a technique that fuzzes out the wrinkles. She really wasn’t that old.

Makeup commercials for companies like Revlon and L’Oreal overexpose the models to the point of near featurelessness. To me, this looks hideous.

They made a commercial with Diane Keaton, a woman I adore who is just herself and always has been. Her face was so blasted with overexposure that I couldn’t find her nose. Horrible!

Then I see another commercial with Jennifer Garner, that “withered up old hag,” and she’s all blasted out too! Does she even have a single wrinkle?

It’s awful what they do to women in advertising.

    One of the things I like about the series Carnivale is that they don’t do that, and have older actresses.
