Students Create Array of Makeup Effects for Stage

Seventh and eighth graders enrolled in the arts elective Special Effects Makeup have been busy practicing their craft. Unlike everyday makeup, stage makeup’s role is to highlight your facial features for performance under the bright stage lights. Therefore, it is important that the makeup is not only a lot thicker than normal, but a lot more pigmented. It creates a great base not only to build coverage but to build your characters look. Furthermore, due to the heat of the lights, costume changes and of course sweat, stage makeup is designed for long wear and heavy duty. Students have learned basing, contouring and highlighting, old age, beauty, accident/blood/bruise/gore, and face-painting techniques.
