Standby and More Make-ups

It’s amazing how quickly the weeks are passing by and it’s been great to see the students evolve as artists. This week we had the fabulous Viv Mepham guest lecturing on how to conduct yourself on set and what to put in that standby kit for correct maintenance of your make-up and hair.

And most importantly how to create a no make-up look. Thanks to Corrine, an actress friend, for coming in and giving us her time. It was great to work with someone who knows what do in front of a camera.

From the no make-up look it was off to Egypt, where we had to create a traditional Egyptian character film look - all looking very dark and now able to go mad with the gold eyeshadow.

Warren showed the students how to wash and blow dry our actresses hair, then a quick make-up so that when they left the studio they felt and looked great.

To finish off the week the students worked on their paper mache masks and off into the studio workshop to continue with their sculptures.
