The series featured Ezz El Arab with little hair as well as with an altered appearance.
The look had left many of the audience in a state of awe over how brilliant and professionally the actress’ make-up was created.

He also spoke about if he used pictures to create the look.
“It is necessary to look at different pictures to reach the desired form for the drama,” Abdel Hamid stressed.
He also noted that he also took part as a make-up artist in several works, including the TV series “Halawet Al Donia”.
Abdel Hamid noted that he created the cancer makeup for Hend Sabry and Zafer Abdeen, who both suffered from hair loss during the events of the series.
