Must-haves for a successful makeup application

Our makeup professionals at Mangelsen's recommend these must-haves to make your makeup look the most real and last throughout the performance or night!

  • Mehron Barrier Spray: This miracle spray is a multi-purpose product. Spritz on your face before makeup application to prevent sweating. After your makeup is complete, spray it on top to set your makeup!

  • Cinema Secrets FX Blood: For a realistic blood effect, this thin yet tacky faux blood does the trick. Looks like recently exposed blood!

  • Cinema Secrets FX Blood Gel: Coagulated blood is possible with this product. Blood remains tacky and has the "dried blood" look.

  • Ben Nye Spirit Gum: When you need a little facial hair in a hurry! Apply Spirit Gum and allow to get tacky before applying your faux fur.

  • Mehron 3 - D Gel: This fun product will create believable skin abrasions.

  • Ben Nye Final Seal: Protect your hard work with this final spray. Spritz over powder makeup, creme makeup, or prosthetics for a finish that will last for hours.
