11 Levels of Prosthetic Makeup: Easy to Complex | WIRED

Professional prosthetic makeup artist Meg Wilbur explains special effects makeup in 11 levels of difficulty, from easy to complex. Special effects makeup is a really broad category, so Meg defines complexity as increasingly elaborate flourishes, texture and detail in her work. Meg goes over everything from temporary tattoos to prosthetic face applications and dry-brushing.
