What does the writer mean by the fiery misery of those subjected to make up?


Answer – 

By ‘the fiery misery’ of those subjected to make-up, the writer is trying to throw light upon the difficulties actors and actresses had to face in the make-up rooms. These rooms were like hair-cutting salons with half a dozen mirrors surrounded by large incandescent light bulbs. The bulbs generated a lot of heat and were definitely not a pleasure for the eyes. 

They had to sit in these high temperatures for long hours which was a cause of misery.
