Make-Up for Film

The use of makeup is divided into three categories:

  • Basic - designed to compensate for undesirable changes in appearance introduced by the television process.

  • Corrective - designed to enhance positive attributes and downplay flaws.

  • Character - which introduces major changes in appearance.

Although people might think that makeup is reserved for people "who just want to look better" on TV or in film, in actual fact, makeup may be required to just retain a subject's normal appearance. 

This is because the television and film processes to some degree can introduce (or make obvious) undesirable attributes to skin tones and features. With the advent of high-definition television, the need for people skilled in the application of effective but subtle makeup has increased. As in most areas of television, makeup is an element that is best when it goes unnoticed.

Make-Up for Theater

In theater, everything from the costumes, the set, the lights and the makeup has been carefully designed to help tell the story. Any choice can be “right” as long as it helps say something about what’s happening to the characters. A quality makeup artist is crucial to the success of a theatrical production. You will help transform the cast and bring the vision of the script to life with the use of stage and special effects makeup. 

Make-up for Fashion shoots

The art of makeup is a craft and it is an essential part to any photo shoot. The makeup artist is in a position to use their artistic skills to transform the face of the model, through their skills the look of the image can be taken to a higher level.
