“The Complete Make-up Artist Third Edition is exceptional…a brilliant resource for any aspiring make-up artist

For more than 25 years, The Complete Make-up Artist has been the go-to ‘bible’ for anyone working in TV, film or theatre. Today sees the launch of the third edition, written by Penny Delamar, founder of the world-renowned Delamar Academy, in collaboration with a host of award-winning make-up artists.

“The Complete Make-up Artist Third Edition is exceptional…a brilliant resource for any aspiring make-up artist or for those who need to refresh their skills.” Catherine Scoble, Professional Make-up Artist and BAFTA winner.

The Complete Make-up Artist is published by Cengage and is the only media make-up book to be endorsed by Habia and VTCT.

It follows best-selling first and second editions and has been produced in collaboration with some of today’s top make-up artists, from Oscar winner Trefor Proud to BAFTA winner Catherine Scoble and globally-renowned Kristyan Mallett whose recent successes include the blockbuster film The Theory of Everything.

The book features full insight into the world of fashion make-up by Jo Frost who has worked for many of today’s leading designers. In addition, there are up-to-date and in-depth chapters on fashion make-up techniques as well as casualty and prosthetics, body art, wigs and hairpieces, and period and character make-up, subjects often overlooked by traditional beauty text books.

• Professionally photographed step-by-step tutorials from leading make-up artists.
• Full colour images and diagrams illustrate key techniques.
• Top tips of the trade to help students to apply their skills.

No-one is better placed to create a make-up artistry book which stands the test of time. Penny founded The Delamar Academy in 1986 and since then the company has earned an enviable reputation for producing some of the finest make-up artists of our time.

Graduates of the Delamar Academy have worked on a host of Box Office hits including films such as Gladiator, the Harry Potter series, The Iron Lady, Star Wars and more recent TV successes such as This is England, Mr Selfridge and Downton Abbey.


Notes to Editors
The Delamar Academy is based at Ealing Studios and runs a variety of courses ranging from one week to one year, including the Higher Education Certificate in Professional Make-up Design.

Its standing within the film industry is such that the Delamar Academy attracts students from across the globe and recently hit the headlines when Tom Cruise revealed his adopted daughter, Isabella, was a graduate of the Academy.

Penny Delamar and team are available for interview upon request.
