The Gamora Makeup Transformation Is ‘Painful’ and Takes ‘At Least 40 Minutes To Remove,’ according to Zoe Saldana.
Zoe Saldana talked about her ‘bittersweet’ transformation into Gamora for ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy,’ as well as the skincare routine she uses to calm her skin!
Zoe Saldana revealed the arduous make-up process she goes through every day to transform into Gamora when she returns to London to film Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 3. Over the previous few weeks, the actress has turned to Instagram to show off her complete face of prosthetics, green make-up, and even ivy-colored nails.
Zoe’s complexion is still perfect, smooth, and poreless, but how does she manage it all? «Removing all of it takes 40 minutes because you want to do it gently.» All of those adhesives activate over time, and the more you perspire under them, the more they stick to your skin, so we take our time removing them,» she stated in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.
The Guardians actress explained that she usually steams her face after the procedure to open up her pores. «After that, I apply an astringent to activate all of my natural oils, allowing me to expel anything my pores have consumed that day!» Zoe chimed in. «Then it’s just getting home and taking a nice hot bath before going to bed and doing it all over again.»
«The one thing I have to do is try not to panic,» she said. «I can’t do anything about it.» It’s something I have to do. It’s a bittersweet process because it’s bitter because it takes so long, and the transition is a little difficult, but it’s sweet because it results in such fantastic results in James Gunn’s tale,» Zoe remarked.
«So, every morning I feel grumpy, but I leave skipping because we’re teaching so much and telling wonderful stories, telling great jokes, and I’m working with great people.»
In a recent interview with Deadline, director James Gunn stated that the upcoming Guardians will be «the final time audiences will see this bunch of Guardians» together. «It’s massive; it’s so, so big and dark and different from what people might be expecting it to be,» he said, confirming that a character would die in the highly awaited MCU film.
Zoe played Gamora in both the first and second installments of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, as well as in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and its sequel Avengers: Endgame, which was released in April 2019. When she returned to Gamora, she told HL, «Every lived event inspires you or alters something about you and your approach to your artistic profession.»
«I’m much more grateful now.» I feel like the older I get, the more I realize how fortunate I’ve been and how hard I’ve worked. «Sometimes it’s just about appreciating the moment and being in the moment that produces the most incredible results.»
