When it comes to stage makeup, it's not always easy to know what to buy, or where to get it -- especially if you're a student, or a performer who's just starting out. Luckily, there are several major brands that have become trusted by both theatrical and screen artists, effects pros, and performers, and which offer a wealth of information and access online -- not just to products, but also to handy kits, demos, tools, DVDs, how-tos, and the latest catalogues.
Check out my latest article here for a guide to some of the "Top Stage Makeup Vendors and Suppliers," for an overview of how to contact and purchase such theatrical makeup brands as Mehron, Kryolan, Ben Nye, Graftobian, and more. (Which brands do YOU swear by? Share your experiences with a comment or two!)
