Bourne Makeup Artist – Jeremy Renner’s Makeup Artist Past & Quick Makeup Tip

Little did we know about Jeremy Renner’s background.  Who would’ve thought that the man who played The Avengers’ very own sharp-shooter, Hawkeye, and the lead in the Bourne Legacy film, actually began his showbiz career as a makeup artist in a shop then perhaps eventually on set?

“I could do makeup because I did theater… I could paint and I could draw, so I’m like, ‘OK, I’ll do makeup on girls all day… It bought me a lot of free time to go audition when I needed to because I only had to work a few hours a week. I didn’t have to wait tables, so it was actually a great gig.”YAHOO NEWS, April 27, 2012

Yes, of course I know it’s not as sweet as when you hear it from the actor’s very own lips.  So here I bring you a clip of his interview with Ellen very early on in 2010 right after Hurt Locker put this artistic hottie on the Hollywood map.  From the time 3:10 onwards in the clip he shares the ultimate tip for 5-minute makeup with Ellen and her audience and it’s actually a no-brainer.



  • Renner is just incredible. I really really like him, and I don’t know why. Hahaha! Ok, so now I’m more convinced that not all male make up artists are gays… No offense meant to gays, though…
