About this Course

Special Effects Makeup can be defined as the use of prosthetic sculpting, molding, casting and painting to create advanced cosmetic effects. Special Effects Makeup can be seen in most popular TV shows and movies and even at conventions and Halloween. It can go from scary movie monsters like werewolves, aliens and zombies to changing someone appearance to look younger, older, and different facial features or weight. 

In this Level 1 Special Effects Makeup course, you will be led by Hendrickje (pronounced Hen-Dree-Ka) Matthews, a professional makeup artist, who has been in the industry for over 20 years. She will start off the course with the basics of special effects makeup from a cheek gash to slit throat. In the second section you will go into a little more intermediate and popular makeup design, the zombie. The last section will go into aging with prosthetics and subtle aging with only makeup.
