Canadian Makeup Show Demo's: Part Two - Makeup's

As promised here are the makeup demo's I did at the Canadian Makeup show held here in Vancouver this past April.

On the first day I did a gelatin burn scar makeup. It consisted of 4 overlapping appliances finished with just a touch of hand laid hair(side burn). Underneath the makeup was a strip of nylon glued under the lower eye then stretched and glued under my model's jawline. This gave the eye a slight sag, and would pull down on his lower lid even more when talking or moved his jaw. It turned out fantastically! It was glued down with pros aid and colored with Illustrator pallets. The largest of all the appliances had bad edges so a bit of bondo was used to blend, in the end It turned out great!!
I got some really nice comments about the makeup. Included in those people were 2 Oscar winners, Ve Neill and Bill Corso, so their kind words were very much appreciated! Anyways here it is, hope you enjoy!

On the second day I did the bondo transfer demo. It just consisted of a bunch of scratches, no notable cause, I just sculpted them where ever I felt really. In the end I applied 9 transfers, ranging from small lip cuts to larger forehead or cheek pieces. They were then colored with Illustrator and then touched up with fake blood. In the end I really like the way it looked when most of the fake blood was removed, it looked the most raw and sore and real.
So here it is!

This is with most of the blood removed.

Finally here is what it looked like with just the bondo pieces before coloring and blood.
