Fantasy Makeup: A First-Class Ticket to the World of Fashion and Film

Are you after an exciting, high-paying career in the fashion and film industry as a fantasy makeup artist? With shows like the Avengers, Tiger House, the Perfect Wave, Black Sails, 10 000 BC, Dredd, and Resident Evil – Joburg’s bustling café culture vibe, Cape Town’s Sea Point promenade and Durban’s sunny coast provide the best setting and economy for commercials, series, and movies.

Work with Celebrities, Entertainers, Presenters and Models

A metamorphosis that most makeup artists will never master – unless they learn the tricks of the trade, fantasy makeup artists, also known as special effects makeup artists, have exciting career paths. They work with celebrities, extras, entertainers, presenters and models, and they get to do what they love, every day of their lives. They also get paid well doing it too.

To Be the Best is to Study with the Best

A fantasy makeup artist can turn a 5-year old into a 100-year old and a 90-year old grandmother into a beauty queen. However, there is a difference between learning hands-on from a fantasy makeup expert and watching YouTube tutorials. Mediocre artists replicate looks, but the best fantasy makeup artists create jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind looks, so if you want to be the best, you must study with the best

Film and photography play a significant role, and a reputable workshop or course will teach you all about the colour and lighting for film and photographs. You will learn how to create bullet wounds, lesions, cuts, blood, deformities, mutations, tattoos, and skin disorders and birthmarks. Along with day, evening, night, ageing, ethnic and photographic makeup, you will also master corrective makeup techniques, sculpting, latex ageing, and cast moulding.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to land a behind-the-scenes career as a fashion, commercial or movie fantasy makeup artist, get in touch with Face to Face Makeup & Beauty Design School.
