I am looking for guidelines for applying makeup on individuals for actors B&W headshots. I have 7 years of experience in applying makeup for the stage, but I'm not sure of what adjustments I need to make for the camera - specifically B&W, but color also.

Does anyone have any experience in this - or know of where good guidelines are available online?
I have nothing to add to this thread. I just wanted to dig up the oldest thread possible since that seems to be a theme around here lately.:lmao:

Nope, Just giving KmH a chuckle for the day. :lol:

If by chance some day you're not feeling well and you should remember some silly thing I've said or done and it brings back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose as your clown has been fulfilled.
