Palin's Makeup Artist Even More Expensive Than McCain's (SLIDESHOW)

Today the Washington Post's Sleuth reports that Sarah Palin is spending more than John McCain on her own celebrity makeup artist.

McCain's September payments of $8,672.55 to "American Idol" make-up artist Tifanie White, who has also worked on the reality dance show "So You Think You Can Dance," are a drop in the bucket on the campaign's beautification front compared to the GOP vice presidential nominee.

The Sleuth has learned that Palin's high-paid traveling make-up artist is Amy Strozzi, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work as head of makeup on "So You Think You Can Dance." Strozzi was paid $13,200 by the McCain-Palin campaign last month alone, according to the campaign's latest financial disclosure report filed this week.

We noticed that Governor Palin's been wearing particularly heavy blush in recent weeks. See a slideshow of Sarah Palin's makeup transformation here.
