Summary

A beautiful and practical book for designing dramatic character make-up. The author, Irene Corey, is a world-honored designer for live theatre, film, and television, who approaches make-up for the face as if it were a canvas, without limitations. She reinforces or ignores what nature has given. Her positive and direct style, her sense of humor, the remarkable assemblage of pictorial resources, her creative vision--all make this a valuable book in the classroom and in the studio dressing room. Author Irene Corey's techniques open new realms of inspiration for the make-up artist and theatre student. The beginner will find the make-up exercise progression a practical guide. Corey also lucidly traces the procedure of designing make-up using photographs as inspiration including the aging process, many cultures and time periods and non-human creatures, as well. More than 400 illustrations and photos, many in color. Transparent overlays. A proven text book for college and professional education.
