Thanks, just a quick 2 min. cut, its not hard you just have to figure out what you want and go for it, the biggest thing I see is not blending the makeup,and overdoing it with the blood, less is better.

Stage make-up is great and often under-rated. I adore it as I have been on stage for 30+ years! Decided to try to go professional with acting startinmg from last year. :D

For close-up I'm just getting into film make-up. I've contracted a couple make-up films late last year and am hoping that some come through this year as well.

I keep promising a how-to, but I haven't done it yet. :) I used latex to outline the "rip" on my real cheek and then rubbed and lifted it as if it was torn away. The flap is a half circle of latex that has the round end torn and ripped with my fingers before attaching it. Sometimes the simplist things make the best effect. For instance, I put latex over my left eye and then used crushed cornflakes over my eye and partway down the cheek. The nose is puttied and slit across the bridge where I made the ends face away from each other.

I recently found a better and much faster way of making a non-toxic convincing film blood- chocolate syrup and red food coloring. It doesn't look pink on film and dries to a nice consistancy, making drips freeze in place.

Some other make-up touches and voila! Me as a zombie on film! LOL
