When the coronavirus lockdown came into effect earlier this year, the stars of our favourite daytime TV shows – including GMB, This Morning and Loose Women – all had to start doing their own makeup to adhere to the government’s social distancing rules.
After one particular episode of his daytime TV show, Piers was mocked on Twitter for an epic makeup blunder that saw viewers comparing him to US President Donald Trump.
What did Lisa say about Piers?
In a new interview, makeup artist Lisa admitted she had to text Piers when she saw how he looked on screen.
“I’ve not done anything for months – people are having to do their own makeup,” she told the charity’s website.
And Lisa went on to describe the moment she had to ask Piers “what the hell” had happened to his face.
She said: “When Piers did his for Good Morning Britain, I texted him and asked, ‘What the hell’s happened to you?’ People are now appreciating what makeup artists do.”
‘Like a satsuma’
'If I have over tangerine'd the tangerine dream I can only apologise.'

She quipped at the time: “It’s like a satsuma had a fling with a tangerine and then they both went to a tanning booth.”
One Good Morning Britain viewer used the word “tangoed” to describe Piers. Another said the look was “very Essex” and suggested he go on reality series TOWIE or Love Island.

Piers admitted it was a struggle to do his own makeup on the first day (March 25) of the changes. He shared a snap from his dressing room and told followers on Twitter: “Doing my own @GMB make-up for the first time – this struggle just got real.”
