Trick or Treat! Halloween is nearly here. Supermarket displays are full of ghoulish costumes as children and adults gear up for a night of harmless horror. As the early evening draws in on 30th October the knocks on the door will begin! Children making the door to door neighbourhood journey to fill their buckets with the tricks or treats that greet them.
I have to admit, I’m amazed with the efforts adults are making to get involved in the horror night parties, costumes, makeup, wigs and hats. These themed parties appear to be much fun, although I have not had the liberty of attending one! The shared pictures across social media show creative and some hilarious looks that are not for the faint hearted.
Halloween Parties are becoming popular and the make-up is more creative than ever. ‘Special effects (sfx)’ is the name used for creating traumatic looks such as burns, cuts and scars. A very special technique which some Make Up Artist’s use in films and now during Halloween. If you have already booked in with a Make Artist for Halloween, you are a step ahead of the rest. I’ve been told it’s now a struggle to get a session booked in with a good MUA.
Decordova Mua is one such freelance MUA, whose work has been featured in a TV drama and has been called on to apply horror make-up for the ever increasing Halloween parties. Some of the skills needed for this exciting career includes plenty of creativity, flair and eye for detail, a great experience to see how this is all put together.
Decordova Mua is offering an insight into creating these ghoulish looks with a demo session on Savvy Guest. If you would like to know more about what’s involved register at www.savvyguest.com.
