To apply wrinkles on Maite’s face I used a special makeup that is required when we need to age the skin, every morning before starting to make up her I applied certain products to achieve it. Also, working with her was amazing, she is a very approachable person and allowed me to play with products to get to what the character needed to show on the skin.”
