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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
