Popular “Young and the Restless” star Melissa Ordway made a cosmetic comeback in one of the latest videos posted by CBS in its “Not Safe for Daytime”digital video series. Ordway and Camryn Grimes participated in the Makeup Challenge, to apply makeup to each other while the applier wears a blindfold!
Ordway, still looking a fright from the makeup number Grimes (Mariah Copeland) did on her, clumsily applied foundation to a giggling Grimes’ face. “I feel really good about this,” Ordway says, laughing. “I’m thinking about being a makeup artist on the side,” she jokingly adds!
Ordway then accidentally used a dark eye pencil to outline Grimes fair lips–or chin, in this case–and used a red lip pencil to apply what could loosely be called “cat eye” makeup to her eyes. After putting mascara in the crease of Grimes’ eyes, she removes her blindfold. She can barely contain her laughter!
When Grimes gets a gander at her frightful face, she tells Ordway, “You know, your instincts are right: I’m so pale, I need some color on my face!” Ordway guffaws at this. Her work on Grimes’ face is slightly reminiscent of “Dora,” the famous portrait by Cubist pioneer, Pablo Picasso!
In the accompanying video, Grimes said of her own makeup application on Ordway: “I think it looks like a work of art. I’m proud.”
