Make-up is important to creating an impression of the character. Depending on what you want the character to be portrayed as will depend on what make-up techniques you will use. In my film opening I do not need the character to have even skin and look pretty. Because it is a war film and the character is a soldier he needs to have a rough battered look and needs to portray that he has been enduring all the elements of nature. So what I want is mud on the face so a base layer that is light and areas where mud has been plastered on, other areas where there needs to be mud is neck chest and hands. Also i want a slight hint of oil or metal smell on the hands because smell helps the actor get into character. There also needs to be a blood wound on the neck.
