For Cougars, It's All About The Stripes

As someone staring down the double-barreled shotgun of her mid-forties I chortle regularly at The Cougar Den, featuring one of Kristin Wiig's chameleon-like comic personas. While the actresses pull off their hormone-and-botox ridden characters with great aplomb (and a sultrified version of the white man's overbite), the unsung heroes of the sketches are SNL's makeup artists — who have clearly made Lauren Hutton's "pooch and nose" techniques, as well as Charla Krupp's contribution to the 21st century literary oeuvre, items of dedicated study.
