Fun Fun Fun! Special Effects Class at Cinema Secrets

Cinema Secrets Special Effects Makeup Demo

I’ve been attending April Love Makeup Academy for the past few weeks, and I am so glad I chose this school over one other in the area. I’m putting together a review of different makeup schools in Southern California, but we’ll save that for another day.

April Love holds continuing education classes for grads and students, and Sunday I was more than happy to attend a special effects makeup demo at Cinema Secrets in Burbank, hosted by Special FX Makeup Artist Takuo Kanemaru.

I had a blast learning how to recreate bruises, infections and bite wounds. Takuo is amazing and works quickly, but efficiently. He has been working in makeup for the past 14 years and was trained by the masters in makeup: Maurice Stein, Rick Baker, Stan Winston, and Barney Burman, among others.

Cinema Secrets is THE place to pick up all of your Halloween goodies, costumes and effects. If you’re planning a trip to CS, make sure you go well before Halloween. The store gets so packed with customers, the line wraps outside around the store.

Enjoy the photos from the event. I plan to try out a few bruises and scrapes for Halloween.
