Hunter ᴴᴰ’s review published on Letterboxd:
Writer and director Claire Oakley’s daring debut film Make Up is a poetic self unearthing saturated in symbolic imagery and heavy on a stony atmosphere. I felt as if I was lost in a fog of identity and moody confusion. There’s a physical and emotional distance created in Make Up that left me unnerved to say the least. Many highly creative choices that I respect and for my sensibilities is an interesting and enjoyable experience. Not what I was expecting but in a good way!
