  10. 10. Set Make-up Technician <ul><li>Make-up artistry in general is not that well-paid, but a MUA can secure a high-paid position in the film industry when they have gathered an adequate resume. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Set Make-up Technician <ul><li>Make-up artists receive their training in several different ways; they can intern at a theater, they can assist a working make-up artist, or they can attend a school dedicated to teaching make-up artistry. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Set Make-up Technician <ul><li>Make-up artists are primarily self-employed (freelancers), but they may also be represented by an agency or employed by a production company. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Fashion Make-up <ul><li>Fashion make-up is used in magazine photography as well as on the fashion runway. This branch of make-up design is often highly stylized and is usually focused on making the model or actor look as attractive as possible. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Theatrical Make-up <ul><li>Stage make-up is used in conjunction with stage lighting to highlight the actors' faces to make expressions visible to the audience from distances. This includes defining the eyes, lips, and highlighting the facial bones. </li></ul>
  15. 15. High Definition Make-up <ul><li>This strategy for filming offers a new challenge to make-up artists; the extremely sharp resolution of the filming technique requires a new level of coverage needed on a person's face in order to minimize flaws. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Airbrushing Make-up <ul><li>An airbrush is a small, air-operated tool that sprays various media including paint and silicone based makeup by a process of nebulization. The earliest record of airbrushed makeup dates back to the 1925 film Ben-Hur. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Airbrushing Make-up <ul><li>Airbrush has recently been re-popularized by the advent of Hi-Definition. Liquid Foundations are high in coverage but thin in texture and are applied with the airbrush for full coverage without a heavy build-up of product. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Special Effects Makeup <ul><li>The use of special effects make-up can be found in all possible areas of make-up and includes all blood and gore make-up techniques as well as fantasy make-up and the use of prosthetics. </li></ul>
