Okay Let me be clear, when I say special effects I mean like the avatar, broadways Cats, things like that. Not the horror movie looks. Im wondering if prints, creams, and in some cases powders are best to create these looks? I would love to get you guys thoughts on the matter. Please dont hesitate in chiming in!….
Stay Up Geeks!
I like Kryolan and Mehron for that sort of special effects makeup~
I agree with amoxirat, also Ben Nye is really good for theatrical, special effects makeup. As for the type of product, you usually use a combination of many types, it really depends on what look you are doing. Are you working on a specific show or character?
However, if this is for theatre or filming if you are using powder products make sure to set them with a spray as your subjects will probably be sweating under the lights. Also avoiding any makeup with SPF in it is important because it will reflect light and make your subjects appear more pale.
I have done some research the products you spoke of and you really know your stuff! Im doing a look inspired by Cirque du Soleil. Thanks so much, you too Amoxirat! You guys rock!
I recommend Krylon or Mehron water colors. You can find them in palette form or single colors online . They are easy to use and easy to wash off. I used them for a children’s production of the wizard of oz and it lasted through on the kids with running or fading. Hth..
Kryolan, Ben Nye, Graftobian,
These are the brand which I use for special effects makeup
