Theatrical Makeup : Basic Application Techniques Hardback


Theatrical Makeup clearly and concisely explains the basics of theatrical makeup techniques to allow stage actors to put their best face forward!

Readers will gain understanding of the physiology of the human face and, using cream based makeup, as well as commercial cosmetics, learn how to contour it to suit the character with the use of highlight and shadow.

Hundreds of full color images and step-by-step instructions illustrate how to visually manipulate bone structure and apparent age, apply simple facial hair and wounds, and create glamorous and natural stage makeup.

Also covered are the tools readers will need to apply their own makeup, along with critical health and hygiene tips.

This book is suitable for beginner Theatrical Makeup courses and for stage actors of all levels.
