What Is Plastic Makeup? How Is It Done?
Plastic makeup is a type of makeup that is most used in show business. With this makeup you can make your face or body look like there are wounds, cuts, disintegrations that aren’t actually there. In the show business, the areas of choice are usually the cinema and television industry. In recent years, the use of plastic makeup has become one of the indispensables of cinema and TV series industry. Plastic makeup, which we usually meet on television or on the big screen, is mostly used to give effects such as injuries, masks, facial changes, aging, burning and cutting.

But plastic make-up is usually a make-up that cannot be encountered as often as injury or bleeding and requires much more effort. Porcelain make-up, on the other hand, is often used to create aesthetics.
