Makeup, as we know it, has only been commercially available in the last 100 years, but applying decoration to the face and body may be one of the oldest global social practices. In Face Paint, Lisa Eldridge reveals the entire history of the art form, from Egyptian and Classical times up through the Victorian age and golden era of Hollywood, and also surveys the cutting-edge makeup science of today and tomorrow. Face Paint explores the practical and idiosyncratic reasons behind makeup’s use, the actual materials employed over generations, and the glamorous icons that people emulate, it is also a social history of women and the ways in which we can understand their lives through the prism and impact of makeup.

Color Theory for the Make-up Artist: Understanding Color and Light for Beauty and Special Effects analyzes and explains traditional color theory for fine artists and applies it to the make-up artist. This book is suitable for both professionals and beginners who wish to train their eye further to understand and recognize distinctions in color. It explains why we see color, how to categorize and identify color, relationships between colors, and it relates these concepts to beauty and special effects make-up. The book teaches the reader how to mix flesh tones by using only primary colors, and explains how these colors in paints and make-up are sourced and created. It also discusses the reason for variations in skin colors and undertones, and how to identify and match these using make-up, while choosing flattering colors for the eyes, lips, and cheeks. Colors found inside the body are explained for special effects make-up, like why we bruise, bleed, or appear sick. Ideas and techniques are also described for painting prosthetics, in addition to using color as inspiration in make-up designs. The book also discusses how lighting affects color on film, television, theater, and photography sets, and how to properly light a workspace for successful applications.

At forty-six, Bobbie Weiner found herself divorced and penniless, and something that was even worse—identity-less. On a whim, she enrolled in makeup school and soon found herself applying gory special effects makeup to the actors on Hollywood sets. Her work on the horror film Pumpkinhead II earned her the nickname “Bloody Mary,” which would become her new identity. After she helped create the dead, frozen corpses in the Oscar-winning film Titanic, her life would never be the same. With just an idea and a hunch—and no financial help from a single bank in the world, since none of them would give her a loan—she launched her line of Sports Fan Face Paint and sold it to colleges around the country. The US Department of Defense took notice and hired Bobbie to develop camouflage face paint for soldiers. Each success led to another, and today she supplies face paint to hundreds of major sporting events, militaries around the world, the movie industry, and the haunt industry. Throughout her career, Bobbie’s entrepreneurial spirit, her passion, her persistence, and her willingness to make sacrifices have helped her turn a bad break into a prosperous life. I Can Do This tells the story of how Bobbie turned her “Bloody Mary” nickname into a multimillion-dollar business.
