define a character

Not all makeup is meant to be noticed; in many cases, only the slightest touches have the most powerful effects. Scuffs of dirt, droplets of sweat, just a scrape here or there, bear great significance without being noticed. Build your reality without breaking the fourth wall.

For strong archetypal characters, sometimes a striking effect is the best way to establish their aesthetic. Scars, whether gruesome or rugged; disfigurements, whether genetic or received; prosthetics, whether natural or maniacal. Create an icon with the perfect effect.
