The Kill Bill actress stepped out on the red carpet on Monday for the New York premiere of “The Slap.” Everyone pretty much just lost it when they saw Thurman rocking a more natural beauty style. It seems however, no on understands the power of makeup, as speculations started to arise that 44-year-old had plastic surgery.
She didn’t of course, and PEOPLE magazine has the proof. The glossy sat down with Thurman’s makeup artist to get the tea on her controversial look. “Uma and I discussed creating a look that was more editorial with soft natural lashes. As a makeup artist I’ve grown a bit tired of all of the lash-y looks and fake eyelashes that we’ve been seeing on the red carpet for some time now,” Troy Surratt said. He then paired this subtle look with a bold lip and feathered brow.
It’s important to understand how even the slightest makeup can change a person’s appearance dramatically. And besides for basically no eye makeup, Thurman looks exactly the same as she has in the past.
We’re actually quite shocked to find out that a more natural look got negative attention, and we weren’t the only ones. “By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression. I think that women should feel open and free to experiment with different beauty looks — it’s only makeup, at the end of the day it all washes off,” Surratt added.
