Izzie Does it, Makeup or No Makeup

by at . Comments

You have to credit the Grey's Anatomy makeup department... or lack thereof. Every shot of the grieving Izzie Stevens so far this season has been of the former intern looking, shall we say, au natural.

Donning an apron, pony tail no zero hair products or makeup, she's been the opposite of what we expect from a woman of Katherine Heigl's beauty -- but everything we would expect, realistically, from a top-notch show portraying a character in Izzie's predicament.

For the sake of comparing the two, here's Heigl alternatively roughing it as Izzie (shown baking up a muffin storm in last week's "I Am a Tree") and shopping this week in Los Angeles. Click to enlarge!

That's one of the things that make this show so great. They look like real people. If she was on another show going throught the same situation she would look all made up hair perfect and makeup. She really looks like someone going through a bad time. You can relate to a character more if they don't look like they just stepped out of a magizine.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.

They say we can repress our memories. I wonder if we're just keeping them safe somewhere because no matter how painful they are, they are our most valuable possessions. They made us who we are.
