As many of you know, I’ve graduated from Make Up Forever Academy nearly three months back from their Beauty and Fashion course.
As a make up artist, I feel that I should be able to do special effects and I have a strong interest in that area too. So I sign up immediately once I know the dates of the Special Effects Masterclass at Make Up Forever.
I just completed the two day Masterclass and I’m happy to say I can now create a zombie. Haha.
Some of the effects learnt. There’s different types of burns, cuts and wounds. I must say, it’s pretty fun to play with blood. Fake blood of course. And the fake pus is not as disgusting as the real thing. Lol.
I guess my forte will be in creating cuts. I’m pretty proud of this cut I did on first try. I even managed to convinced a few people that it’s actually a real cut. It is only going to get more realistic from now one. 🙂
There is a lot more to Special Effects than just creating the wound. Each bruise and wound have to be logical for it to be realistic. A lot of research have to be done for a realistic look. It is challenging but definitely a fun thing to do for me! Definitely looking forward to Halloween this year when I can put my newly learned skills to good use. 🙂
And if you’re interested to get some special effects make up done for Halloween in October or any theme parties, email me at Joyce.firstname.lastname@example.org for my availability and rates!
