As someone who used to write Jonas Brothers fan fiction, I can admit that my guilty pleasure of the year will be After We Collided. Like The Bachelor or my many Twilight rewatches, After We Collided is exactly what my stressed-out brain lives for while I slowly, but surely, morph into a recluse. But as an avid fan of the the book series and the first movie that hit Netflix last year, I was a little disappointed in the Hardin Scott I saw adapted from the page to the screen.To be fair, the casting is great, but the look was lacking. Where are the tattoos? I wondered. Brief reminder: the After films originated as a popular Wattpad series loosely inspired by One Direction, you know, if Harry Styles ever actually became that frat boy he pretended to be in 2014. In short, I wanted more. After all, Styles has nearly 60 tattoos in real life, so I only hoped Hardin’s fictional collection would grow, too. Turns out, it totally did.To get the scoop on the evolution of Hardin’s tattoo collection in After We Collided, I spoke with Katy DiMondi, key makeup artist for the movie. And guess what? There are even juicer behind-the-scenes secrets you probably won’t catch on your first watch. Hint: it involves lube. Shocked? I’m not.
