On Wednesday afternoon, actresses including Monica Potter, Kate Mara, Debby Ryan, Mamie Gummer, Mary McDonnell, Abigail Spencer, Christina Hendricks and Emily Blunt ditched their husbands and boyfriends for Dior Beauty’s fifth-annual luncheon benefiting Operation Smile to partner with makeup artists, who, frankly, in Hollywood, may very well be more critical.


“When I’m doing movies, a good relationship with your hair and makeup team is so important. They really help you get in the mood,” said Mara with makeup artist Amy Chance in tow. McDonnell couldn’t stop gushing about Robin Siegel, the makeup artist she was paired with. “Robin is the best makeup artist in the business. I never feel with Robin that I’m wearing makeup and, today, I feel in particular that I’m glowing,” she said.


Potter, nominated for a Golden Globe for her turn as a breast cancer patient in the NBC show “Parenthood,” expressed gratitude for the transformative capabilities of makeup artists and hairstylists. “I was asked if I wanted to shave my head, and I said I didn’t want to because my little girl may have gotten freaked out,” she detailed. “They worked so incredibly hard to make it look as real as possible. It was a lot of time in the hair-and-makeup chair every day.”


On a lighter note, makeup artist Elle Leary brought a little bit of spring to the winter by painting Ryan’s lips with a bright orangey red Dior Beauty shade for the daytime event. “I like to let one thing speak. If I were to wear a very saturated dress, I wouldn’t do this lip,” said Ryan.
