Response to Skidmore (Original post)

42. OK, I am going to hell for defending this but --

I suspect he used the station make-up artist instead of his own hair/make-up crew. For TV appearances make-up is ALWAYS many shades darker than the natural skin color to counter washout from the uber bright studio lights. His hands are done, too, which is something generally only done by an experienced make-up artist. In the Univision Universe, the "healthy tan" is the esthetic norm so I am sure it would be used for him as well. The only thing I am surprised by is how blotchy it is -- there must have been something going on with his skin texture. I say this as someone who did make-up in the film/video industry for many years.

With that said, I think he looks ridiculous.
