Beauty make-up has – and will always be important, but with the increasing amount of action-packed series in the world, the amount of “victims” to physical violence has also increased tremendously. Several of our independent make-up customers mention that by bringing an air squib kit in their toolbox, they can negotiate higher day rates or fees just by being able to rig a safe, simulated bullet hit on short notice.
You will always impress the director and producers if you can introduce action at a moment`s notice. A simulated bullet hit works equally well for creating drama on the evil villain, or on the beautiful hero or heroine.
If you are a make-up artist, why not further increase your versatility on set by considering bringing the air squib?
