Izzie Does it, Makeup or No Makeup

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

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

Derek
