BLURB FROM BACK COVER:

Period productions on stage, television and film are increasingly popular. Part of the success of these productions is authentic make-up. Make-up fashions have varied enormously through history and the right make-up can help a production evoke another age. Period Make-up for the Stage is an invaluable source book for actors, designers, make-up artists, directors and students. It looks at make-up and hairstyles from the Ancient Egyptians, Elizabethans and Jacobeans to the Swinging '60s, Flower Power and Punk-look of the '70s.

Basic stage make-up for men and women is described and illustrated clearly for white, Hispanic, Chinese, black and Asian skins. Using a combination of color photographs and easy to follow make-up charts Rosemarie Swinfield shows with step-by-step instructions how to create each look. Special effects include facial hair, patches, scars, wigs, and the blocking out of eyebrows.

Rosemarie Swinfield is a make-up designer of international standing who works extensively in theatre, photography and film. Following ten years as Head of Make-up at RADA she now runs the make-up training at London Academy of Music and Drama.
