Biography

Born in Rome, I started my make-up career in 1987, working with the most important Italian Make Up Artists.
After various experiences working in cinema and in films made for television, I transferred to New York, where, for a year and a half, I dedicated myself to beauty make-up, fashion and make up for stills photography.
In 1991 I worked on many Italian and international feature films; work that has allowed me to grow technically and to specialize in the field of Special Make-up Effects and the hand laying of facial hair for beards and moustaches and the application of bald caps.

During 1994 I met English Make-up Artist Ian Brown and began a collaboration which endures to this day, fusing the discipline of traditional make up with that of three dimensional prosthetic appliances and special effects make-up. Together we have opened two workshops; one in Wales and the other in Rome.
Ian Brown is an English Make-up Artist, specializing in the design and creation of prosthetic make-up.
He is known for his work on feature films, spanning 3 decades, such as Nightbreed and Kull the Conqueror,and the TV series The Tudors and George Gently.
He currently lives in Dolgellau, North Wales in the UK, where he maintains and runs a small prosthetics workshop. He collaborates closely with Giuseppe Desiato and also helps him in his own workshop in Rome, Italy.

My Work Skills

In period movies, the make-up is a very important element in the definition and realization of the characters in a specific and accurate historical context.

Beauty make up easily and naturally enhances the face of an actor.

One very important skill that you require as a film makeup artist is the ability to completely transform a character applying beards, moustaches, goatees and sideburns.

 

Prosthetic make up provides producers and directors with the opportunity to transform the face and the body of an actor in 3 dimensions.
