Book Description

13 Sep 1990
This is a comprehensive guide to learning the important techniques of film and television makeup. Beginning with a section on tools and materials, the author goes on to explain basic makeup procedures. He then discusses how to achieve specific "looks", whether youthful or old-aged, and how to apply various kinds of wigs, beards, and latex face pieces. A section on special effects deals with the creation of bruises, tattoos, scars, and other exaggerated physical conditions. The book concludes with a reference gallery of makeup examples, showing memorable roles of classic performers like Laurence Olivier, Lon Chaney, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and current stars. It is a companion volume to "Stage Makeup".
