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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
