Dion Wyn’s review published on Letterboxd:
Honestly, Claire Oakley's film floored me. Make Up is a blend of genres that meshes so well together. Overall this is a coming of age drama but it takes eery turns. The ambience is built solidly with candid framing, cold colourisation and striking sound design. Ruth's background is vague and we are submerged in the moment with her. Damn this was impressive.
