Makeup Techniques

  • Bridal makeup - is a new segment in a makeup artist's repertoire. From ethnic, to glamorous, to contemporary, makeup artists are now an important part of wedding planning in Asia, Europe, Africa and North America. 
  • High definition - this is an art which involves the use of light reflectors and ingredients such as minerals to give the skin a flawless finish. 
  • Fashion makeup - used in magazine photography as well as on the fashion runway. It is also commonly used in television and film ranging for the natural prime look to more sophisticated applications such as color balance. 
  • Theatrical makeup - is used as a method in conjunction with stage lighting to highlight the actors' faces in order make expressions visible to the audience from moderate distances. This often includes defining the eyes and lips as well as the highlights and lowlights of the facial bones. 
  • Special make-up effects (FX makeup) - the use of special effects techniques enhancing physical features to exhibit metaphysical characteristics as well as fantasy makeup. The use of prosthetics and plaster casting are also required for projects that entails non-human appearances. Accents such as theatrical blood and ooze are also techniques applicable to this type of makeup. 
  • Airbrushing - the use of an airbrush which is a small air-operated device that sprays various media including alcohol and water-based makeup by a process of nebulization. Liquid foundations that are high in coverage but thin in texture are applied with the airbrush for full coverage without a heavy build-up of product.
