Meet the personal makeup artist to Catherine O’Hara – the woman personally responsible for Moira Rose’s obsidian eyes and rouge bouche on the hit show Schitt’s Creek – it’s Lucky Bromhead! (Fun fact: Lucky is also the key makeup artist for the upcoming series Canada’s Drag Race, debuting in 2020.) The show has officially reached cult-classic status, and now counts Michelle Obama and Mariah Carey as fans. You’ll get all the behind-the-scenes feels in this fun and touching episode, including the makeup artist’s uncanny Moira impressions (bebe!) and a little known secret behind the matriarch’s enviable vocabulary.

Get ready to hear the exact products in her Schitt’s Creek makeup kit, from soap star-worthy mascara to avant garde complexion musts to every.single.shade in the matriarch’s lipstick wardrobe. Plus, don’t miss Lucky’s full breakdown of how to get that coveted “Crow” look, why “age appropriate” doesn’t matter, and the LOLz and tears on that last day of shooting with Dany Levy and the entire, loveable cast.
