It’s part of the foundation, y’see…
If you don’t have a dedicated makeup person, try to get one. If you can’t, let your actors know as soon as possible, so they can plan ahead. You definitely don’t want them showing up thinking there’s going to be makeup, and then having to do their own at the last minute with whatever tools-on-hand they happen to bring.
And, by the way, a makeup person is soooo worth it!
By makeup, I specifically mean a person who has done makeup for movies. They understand more about what makeup has to do under hot lights. Anyone’s better than no one, and a movie makeup person is better than a talented amateur.
