This week at the Australian College of Specialist Make-Up, our Diploma of Screen and Media students tackled what can be the most daunting and extensive procedure that any special effects artist will face. That process is life casting.
What is a face chart?
Basic answer is, it’s a way for make-up artists to plan and/or design a look prior to applying the look to their client. Face charts are helpful to streamline make-up looks for a fashion show or photoshoot and is a great way to give a look a ‘test run’.
Here at ACSM, our students use face charts for each and every single look they want to create – whether it be for their avant-garde assessment or their photographic make-up look.

Many makeup styles require a different eyebrow shape than what you might already have, making it necessary to cover yours up!
Whether you’re going for a fierce drag look, creating a Halloween-inspired look, or simply just spicing up your usual appearance; covering your eyebrows is relatively simple!
Drag Queen (noun): a man who ostentatiously dresses up in women’s clothes.
A drag queen is someone, usually male, who dresses in female clothing/costume and often acts with exaggerated femininity for the purpose of entertainment.
There are many reasons people do drag – such as self-expression, enjoyment and higher-profile performing and entertaining.
However, drag is often seen as a creative outlet, a means of self-exploration, and a way to make a statement.
