Acclaimed as the best book ever published on the subject, A Complete Guide to Special Effects Makeup covers everything from basic facial makeup styles, simple scars and gashes, to masks, molds and cast-making; everything you need to know to create vampires, zombies and other fantastical characters.

With clear step by step instructions and hundreds of color photos, it includes stunning conceptual pieces from many of the contributing artists and a section on manga/cosplay hair and makeup. Bound to thrill anyone interested in creating realistic and unique makeup effects!

This is one of the best guides out there. This book features color photos that provide detailed instructions on how to create monster make up, costumes and prosthetics, as well as specialized accessories. I would recommend this to anyone in the sfx makeup industry or someone who just enjoys it and is looking for inspiration.
