He shared:

We are wigging them, we're matching wardrobe and makeup. Once in a while, if you look closely, you'll see a sideburn is a little longer, when they get in tight on that kiss. But that may be part of the fun of watching these shows, is trying to catch us as we're trying to pull a fast one with these romantic scenes.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) added:

It can be a little difficult at times, when you want to go to reach to touch someone,. But we are actors and you morph and you make it work... I know it sounds so weird and crazy, but these things happen all the time on set. I mean, look at CGI, you have to act [opposite something that's not there]. We have to fake things all the time. So it can seem weird, but everyone's really professional.
