Back into the Make-up boiling pot!

After a two week production break, it was back into the fire when we had Garry Siutz come in to inspire us all with his high fashion class. Garry also has his own make-up line and it was good to again try a new make-up range. What we find exciting is with each new tutor we are introduced to new ideas and equipment. We did simple but effective make-up’s, and was really pleased with our final looks. A big thank you to Garry for a really great day.

We have now hit the paperwork with the students receiving their first script for breakdown. Learning about continuity for film and television drama will be an on going exercise over the next few weeks with lots to cover.

In the art lesson we covered make-up designs based on paintings. We researched and selected our painting as inspiration for our make-up design, then executed the design on the face.

To complete the week we had Karen Playel from The Make-up Business come in to show us her Era Spray make-up. We again had the chance to look at how another make-up artist approaches her craft. It was good to see how her make-up was so quick to apply with great results all round. The covering of tattoos was also amazing with this great make-up line. Then it was back into the workshop to make sure the students prosthetic sculptures were up to a high standard so they can move forward to the next stage which is mould making.
