My goal was to learn about special effects makeup. I also wanted know, where it’s used and how it’s done.
I chose this because I really like art, creating things and this is another form of art that I hadn’t heard of before. As a dancer, I have been dressing up and playing a role since I was little. Special makeup and costumes add and help to play a role, so this is a good skill for me to have in my dance career.
I began by attending my first lesson. I worked on injuries and more gruesome things. Afterwards some equipment to practice and booked another lesson. At my next lesson I focused on character faces. This lesson was also super fun. Again I got some equipment to practice with at home. As Selwyn House got closer to our school production, Peter Pan, my friends were talking about the make-up that was going to be done for the production. I decided to get in touch with Kyleigh Lyth who was head make-up and ask if I could help out with my newly acquired skills. At the meeting she said she would love me to help and so I did the make-up for the photos and all 3 shows!
