year ago

The power of makeup and special effects cannot be underestimated: that’s why cinema is a magical space. If you watch a horror movie or anything revolving around terrifying characters, there is a good chance that actors are wearing layers and layers of cosmetics and synthetic materials to change their looks. That’s what makes them look convincingly horrifying to the point where we can’t identify the actor hiding underneath it all.
