Makeup Morgue

The Makeup Morgue

"One of the first requisites of a good makeup artist is a keen sense of observation and the ability to apply what you observe to the creation of your makeups.  To help you remember what you observe, a makeup morgue (a term used to designate a file of clippings) is indispensable."

Corson, Richard Glavan James. Stage Makeup. 9th ed. Boston, MA: Allyn and Bacon, 2001. Print.
