Jessica has a very smooth look.  Her skin looks like porcelain and Brigitte doesn’t take credit for that at all.  She says:

“Actress Deborah Ann Woll is blessed with a nearly blemish free complexion.”

Brigitte simply applies Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer to get Deborah ready for the camera.

For Tara‘s look, Brigitte uses two shades of Bobbi Brown foundation to give her a smooth and even skin tone.  Brigitte says:

“Like many women of color, [actress] Rutina Wesley has some hyperpigmentation.”

Brigitte also reveals the secret behind Maryann‘s stare.  She uses lots and lots of false lashes.  In addition to her work on True Blood, Brigitte is also an Emmy award winner for her make up artistry for Buffy, The Vampire Slayer.
