abc Makeup Artist Magazine xyz is a trade publication geared towards the professional makeup artist. Published bi-monthly, this magazine delves into the world of stage makeup and artistry. The current issue features techniques and tips from movies which will most likely receive Academy Award nominations such as: abc Lord of the Rings, Monster, The Last Samurai, Master Commander xyz and abc Peter Pan xyz . Offered here are step-by-step information on the process used and how the particular look was derived and achieved.

Regular departments featured include:

  • Product News
  • The Call Sheet
  • Lab Tech
  • Industry Buzz
  • Beauty Breakdown

abc Makeup Artist xyz offers real-world advice from the best and the brightest working in the world of entertainment today. The articles are well illustrated with exceptional photographs to not only document the artist’s work but to instruct those wanting to increase their skill level. One of my favorite regular offerings is called, “Out of the Kit”, where working professionals provide you with their recommendations. These recommendations are not only real-world tested, but provide the novice with the results of careful experimentation. This magazine not only covers the sort of makeup intended to make you beautiful, they include the type of makeup which transforms an actor into a monster, alien, or in extreme cases, an accident victim. If you have an interest in this field or just want to look your very best, this magazine is well worth seeking out.
