Summer Bay loves a glow up: Here's what really happens in the makeup chair behind the scenes of Home & Away

No golden hour necessary.

By Jess Pullar
There's something special about the locale of Home & Away's Summer Bay.
Sure, their lives are embroiled in drama - and more so than any average human would be expected to endure in a lifetime, let alone a few months.
But one thing's for sure - the stress of it all bears literally no impact on their flawless skin.
That, or perhaps they're just blessed with a makeup artist who boasts the best skills in the biz.
Of course, it must be the latter.
A former Home and Away star herself, Laura Vazquez is the leader of the soap's glam squad who gets every single actor and actress camera-ready each day.
Back in the 90s, Laura played Sarah Thompson (fun fact, Ada Nicodemou also auditioned for her role!). While her character hung around for just a few short years, Laura's legacy on the show has since become greater than she could have dreamed.
These days, she shares snaps upon snaps of her various beauty looks created on the perfect models - the cast of Home & Away.
