BA (Hons) Makeup for Media and Performance, were delighted to welcome BAFTA winning special effects makeup artist Kristyan Mallett for a one off seminar.

Kriystan has had an extremely successful career with credits including, “The Theory of Everything”, “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Les Misérables”. Kristyan has a wealth of knowledge and experience as a Prosthetic Makeup Designer; it was an absolute delight to welcome him for the day.

Kristyan began the day with a makeup seminar, showcasing a leprosy makeup design. Using flat pieces and demonstrating new techniques Kristyan interacted with the student group talking about starting in industry and the next steps of his flourishing career.

Following the makeup demonstration, Kristyan conducted a Q&A with makeup student group. In the relaxed environment, Kristyan answered student questions, delivered invaluable advice and even showcased his inspirational makeup portfolio.

We were grateful to Kristyan working around his busy schedule to visit AUB.
