‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Makeup Wins Oscar on $250 Budget

Dallas Buyers Club hair and makeup ladies Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews just took home the coveted prize at the 2014 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (March 2) in Hollywood.

The ladies famously made all the hair and makeup happen for the film on just a $250 budget.

“The Academy just gasped when they heard that,” Robin told Vanity Fair. “We had to take them back and forth from their sickest look to their healthiest look, up to five times in one day … They maintained that 40-pound weight loss throughout. So when you see them in the film, and they look like they’re 25 pounds heavier and healthier because of the medication, that’s just makeup.”

Congrats to the ladies!
