The magic of TV makeup.
This Is Us was this year’s breakout hit for a few reasons, one of them being the superb cast and the emotional connection we feel to the Pearson family.
The series, if you haven’t seen it, switches between the past and the present, showcasing the characters through the decades.
Instead of using a different character to portray the older version of Rebecca, the series uses the power of makeup and some really good makeup artists to age her up.

Obviously, it isn’t as impressive as Mandy’s glam squad but at least I know I’ll be a hot old lady!
