Production Arts: Makeup

Edexcel Production Arts Makeup BTEC (500/7380/1)
Subject Content


This unit introduces a wide range of underpinning skills needed to successfully apply a complete make-up design. It guides the learner through the many factors that need to be considered when first embarking on a design and seeks to encourage the learner, not only to be creative in their own interpretation of a brief, but to hone the skills necessary, to translate that brief into a visual effect. Make-up can play a very important part in the creation of a character, whether it is used in film/TV production, stage, advertising or catwalk performances and the make-up artist should be able to fully communicate their interpretations of a character to the audience, in whichever field they are working.
