Actors often need to do their own makeup when working on independent productions. In this one-day workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of makeup for stage and screen. Learn about face shape, skin care, makeup tools, highlighting, aging techniques, and some simple special effects (scarring and bruising) - so that next time you are prepping for a show or film, you can do your own face or assist with others. Suitable for men and women.
