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.

Excellent tutorials

ALISON MANIFIELD – January 27, 2021

After completing the Level One Course I quickly went on to do this second one. I learned a lot of different new skills and enjoyed it just as much of the previous, as it has the same tutor with a calm informative nature giving a step by step tutorial. I liked this, but the less patient may find the videos it a little long... I feel confident that having already purchased a good set of the required makeup items I can go on to do more advanced work than I could ever have dreamed of before. The quality is good. I will study with you again. Thank you Simpliv.
