Perc Westmore (1904–1970)

The son of an English wigmaker, he began his Hollywood career in 1921. Few actors had photogenically perfect features. Makeup often obliterated the best facial bone structure. Westmore developed cosmetics that would look the same under diverse lighting conditions and with different types of film. See full bio »
