M.A.C. Cosmetics and Lizzie Georgiou show us how to make a mummy!
Whether you wear makeup or not, you have probably heard of M.A.C. Cosmetics at some point. They have stores in shopping malls, products in local boutiques and have their own website. Thanks to their YouTube channel and makeup artist (as well as a great friend to UMU) Lizzie Georgiou, we have learned M.A.C. is the brand of makeup used to turn Sofia Boutella into Ahmanet.
In the video, Lizzie discusses how she wanted to give Ahmanet an updated look rather than sticking to the traditional ancient Egyptian looks we have seen in movies past. Ahmanet’s look was broken down into five stages based on what stage of resurrection she was in at a given point in the film. The writing on her body is from the Egyptian Book of the Dead so it is real writing and has meaning. For more on what went into making Ahmanet and to see Lizzie do what she does best, be sure to watch the video below.
As always, stay tuned to Universal Monsters Universe for the latest on The Mummy and the Universal Monsters Universe of films.
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by Jon Spaihts, Dylan Kussman, and Christopher McQuarrie. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella. The film opens June 9, 2017.
