Award winning make up artist Sheila Hyman will discuss and demonstrate basic stage makeup, corrective makeup techniques, aging and looking younger, and creating and implementing your own makeup designs. She will also discuss the “must haves” of a good makeup kit, reference books and stores, and period makeup.

Participants are encouraged to bring their makeup kits for examination and use, towel or smock to protect clothing, hair barrettes or bands, facial cleansers and extra contact lens solution (lens wearers), makeup mirrors, and a digital camera to document designs.

Sheila Hyman has been creating makeup and hair designs for theatre groups for close to two decades. She received a Washington Area Theatre Community Honors (WATCH) award for Seussical! (Port Tobacco Players) and The Rocky Horror Show (Elden Street Players) and received WATCH nominations for A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Port Tobacco Players), The Mikado (Tantallon Community Players) and All My Sons (Port Tobacco Players). She won an ACT award for Ruthless! The Musical (Dominion Stage).
