In their characters' later years, Barrymore and Jessica Lange are hardly recognizable after special effects makeup designer Bill Corso finished aging them. But his process is visible from the start, when he shaved years off of both actresses for their early scenes. "The less makeup you put on Drew, the younger she looked," he says. Despite using a hand light enough to let her natural freckles show through, he still added blue contact lenses, a fake nose and a full set of false teeth, creating a baseline so he could later age the character's features, rather than the actress's.
