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.
