Transcript of Prosthetic Makeup

Prosthetic Makeup
In 1914,
Max factor, a makeup artist and chemist,
created the first makeup used specifically for movies
at this time movies were shot in black and white and red tones appeared black on screen
so they used makeup with blue and green tints.
Silent film actors would create and apply their own makeup
eventually when movies could be made with the full color spectrum, more natural looking makeup called
makeup was created.
Lon Chaney
one actor by the name of Lon Chaney who was often called the
"man of a thousand faces"

used materials like fish skin, morticans masks and wigs to shape his characters.
What is prosthetic makeup?
Actors use prosthetic makeup in movies to make themselves look like something other than human.
In most films the actors face is covered in this makeup to make them look like a monster, alien, animal or anything fantasy- like.
to effectively use prosthetic makeup you have to be very experienced with it and how to apply it to make realistic textures.
