I love recreating over the top makeup looks which have been worn by fictional characters. These pictures are my version of the Popular ‘Effie Trinket’ from the hunger games. Her makeup and style were so much to recreate!

DISCLAIMER: I hate horror films! However, I love creating them!
Last year I was privileged enough to create a short horror film for one of my graduation projects. The film was called ‘Watch me Bleed’ and it was one hell of an Experience! In honour of Halloween, I thought I would share some behind the scenes and Makeup photos from the 4-day shoot. I got to show off my Speical Effects and Prosthetic makeup talents. To name a few things I created: a monster, a false hand, lots of gross burns, some messed up nails, a fake heart and much more!
Please note: everything you see here is false and all injuries are purely created by Makeup

All makeup, styling and SFX work was done by myself, Natalia Blumenthal.
The following collection of photos highlight the beauty and artistry that goes into creating cracks using makeup application. These makeups were used to create a Halloween themed music video. The video combined makeup and dance in a spooky yet beautiful manner.

One of the most interesting makeup looks I have had to design was a drug addict for an addiction awareness art installation event. Designing each scar and tear was challenging but latex is always fun. Some photos of the experience…

Even though I am a huge fan of bright colours, I really appreciate the detail that goes into creating Black and white images. Sometimes taking colour away can really highlight the beauty and emotion in a photo…
