This generation has taken full advantage of the ability to turn make-up into whatever they want, whether it’s to match your outfit, celebrate the season or create a whole new character; the possibilities with make-up are endless.
You may have a passion for the power make-up holds, but have you ever wondered what career routes it can take you down? Film FX is just one of the many exciting industries you can apply your skills to and develop a successful career...
Why make-up is important in the film industry
Every film or show you have come across includes a make-up team in the process, known as SFX. The scale can go from a simple, casual look to a completely unrecognisable transformation. The most in-demand role for a make-up artist in the film industry is in special effects.
Having the ability to create illusions, realistic wounds or monster-like faces is extremely valued in this line of work. Some of your favourite movies may contain SFX such as:
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- And many more!
Actors play the part in making the character feel real but special effects make-up artists bring characters to life. They are essential in creating a more realistic approach for viewers to enjoy.
