Old Age Prosthetic Makeup ApplicationI’m often asked how much time or money an effect will be. I saw this video one day and felt it really shows how involved the process can be. At the end of the video the narrator explains this effect can cost upwards of $10,000. Yes this is true. However I do want to make it clear that while this entirely custom example of old age prosthetic makeup is absolutely the best way to go there are more affordable options such as; pre made foam latex or gelatin based prosthetics. These pre made items can be made to fit a wide range of generic faces and have a great effect (see my old age prosthetic example in my gallery). You can also reach an acceptable level simply through basic makeup techniques that would be perfectly suited to stage and halloween. If nothing else the video will at least give you a sense of the complexity of what goes into amazing makeup applications.
