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

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
