Love it or hate it, Netflix period drama Bridgerton took the world by storm. The eight-part book series written by best-selling author Julia Quinn is well-loved by bookworms around the world and for the books to be blown up into a series was something that many looked forward to. Netflix is available in 190 countries and except for Japan. The Wrap reports that Bridgerton has reached number 1 overall in 76 countries and top 10 in 189. While the show's scandals and romances kept audiences riveted, Bridgerton's outstanding hair and makeup were also showstoppers. Here's how Marc Pilcher, Bridgerton's head hair and makeup designer, and his team, achieved the beautiful (and numerous!) looks for the show.

Marc Pilcher tells Vogue he's been working in the TV and film industry since 1998. He started in the West End theater scene and a TV movie in Romania was his first foray into film. Claire Matthews, another makeup artist on Pilcher's team, also started in theater then landed a job at an ITV company and has been working in the industry ever since.
