This special effect make-up course was conducted by Miyuki Ng who is a Make-up Tutor for SUB International with 10 years experience in this industry. Her work has been shown in numerous makeup shows as well as iFeel magazine. She is also the Branch Manager for SUB International School located in Sunway.

Here’s the list of what we’ve learned from the special effect make-up course where Miyuki have enlighten most of us that to create special effect, we don’t have to purchase make-up or products that are specially made for special effects. We could just get DIY with simple ingredients from the kitchen. Below is some interesting gory effects.

By mixing water, tapioca flour and red food colouring powder in a mixing bowl, she has created fake blood. Tapioca flour acts as a thickening agent and the red food colouring powder adds colour to the mixture replicating the colour of blood. Heating up the mixture in low heat could also help to thicken it more. Red food colouring liquid can be used and may not need water in this case.

Apply some glue and add bits of cotton over it then layer on with the fake blood that was made earlier. Use the spatula to push around the cotton and add more food colouring powder if needed to add the colour intensity to the effect. This creates an effect of burned skin.

To create heavily burned skin, repeat the same steps as how to create burned skin but this time, just use more cotton. Prick the cotton upright to create an illusion of badly charred skin.

I never thought it could be this easy to create a bullet hole. Repeat the same steps for burned skin effect but this time, shaped the cotton into an ‘O’.  Carefully adjust the shape with the spatula as you go on and there it is, a bullet hole! I accidentally deleted the photo of all three effects but I do hope you get the idea of how it looks like.

To create slit wrist effect, just roll up two thin cottons and repeat the steps on how to create burned skin. Super easy to fake a slit wrist huh?

After the course, we had our break at Starbucks with their muffins, croissants and sandwiches in 1st Avenue. Everyone were treated with a makeover session by SUB International and I was very lucky to have Miyuki to get my hair done!
