"When we filmed on videotape, there was a lot of plastered pancake makeup going on—not to mention the effect of the '80s and '90s," the show's lead makeup artist, Deidre Decker, told Allure magazine.

As a result, this season has often felt less like an organic narrative than a laborious calculation."
