How to use makeup in a sentence?

  1. Yvonne De Carlo:

    I ’d wanted a TV series, but this ? I was n’t sure. I had a hard time getting into the rhythm of it. Then director Joe Pevney suggested I play Lily Munster as a sort of mixed-up Donna Reed character and not overdo anything. When I saw the first pilot in a screening room I cringed at my makeup. But I never estimated it would become this cult thing. It took two hours of makeup to make me seem like that. It ran for two huge seasons, then CBS quarreled with the creators about reruns as we got canceled. A movie in color in 1966 [ ‘ Munster, Go Home ! ’ ] showed off everything in reds and greens on my face. Boy, was I ugly.

  2. Zoe Latta:

    To have a bunch of one gender that’s the same race and height and size and fit, wearing similar clothes and makeup — I don’t think we were ever interested in that.

  3. Marco Rubio:

    He's learning how to spell, but he's flying around on 'Hair Force One' and tweeting. So here's the one tweet he put out. He put out a picture of having makeup put on me at the debate. Which is amazing to me that the guy with the worst spray tan in America is attacking me for putting on makeup. Donald Trump likes to sue people. He should sue whoever did that to his face with that.

  4. Robin Joyce:

    He's rising, big time, he really appeals to the demographic makeup of our state. We really are growing — in the Hispanic population I think we are at 24% now. His message is one that resonates with them, not just from a faith standpoint, but also from the standpoint of not just jobs, but good jobs — and of course a pathway to citizenship that really is reasonable. He's all for that; and we're all for that.

  5. Alexa Ray Joel:

    I’ve learned pretty much everything from my mom, she’s taught me a lot about just taking care of yourself — skin care, great makeup tricks. She’s very good at putting together that very effortless-style look… [And] she’s got the best style. She’s really the most stylish woman I know. I’m just trying to keep up!
