Still debating your Halloween costume? Consider going as Water for Elephants’ glam circus entertainer Marlena Rosenbluth (played by Reese Witherspoon)! We caught up with Robin Fredriksz, the on-set makeup artist, to get instructions for creating this classic look. “I drew inspiration from the actresses of the late ‘20s and ‘30s like Jean Harlow and Carole Lombard,” Fredriksz tells “All of the costumes and makeup were kept very true to that period, so sometimes when I was on set, I really felt like I had stepped back in time.” Get all the how-to beauty details by clicking through the gallery now!
