As someone who watches a LOT of soaps on a daily basis and watches ATWT very closely, sometimes I just sit back and marvel at how good the residents of Oakdale look. It's the perfect combination of the right lighting, makeup, and hairstyle (as well as people who are good-looking to begin with, let's not kid ourselves...LOL).
For instance, this air week, Maura West looks fabulous. She's just rockin' the hair and her cheekbones look awesome. And Terri Colombino's curly look of late makes me wish I didn't have painfully straight and uncurlable hair! Ditto for Justine Cotsonas, with whom they also do a great job of contrasting pale skin with dark hair and eyes.
Anyone else have praise for the pretty visuals lately? An actress's style you wish you could copy? (I went through a period last fall where I wished my hair was Marie Wilson's deep shade of auburn and I actually asked ATWT's makeup artists about how to copy Kelley Hensley's smoky-eyed look.)
We're actually always looking for soap opera style features, so if anyone has questions about ATWT clothes or makeup or hair, I'd be happy to pass them on to our resident fashionistas!
