Workshop description

Come learn the basics behind shading, blending, and applying makeup.

We will explore makeup trends throughout the decades, understand how stage and screen makeup magic happens, and build a foundation for design and application.

Create your very own wacky character and learn how to design their makeup using a makeup plot. We will also explore how our own facial features can be highlighted and brought out when under harsh stage lights.

Grow in confidence and skill as we dive into all things stage makeup. No prior experience needed.
