When we are not packing parcels we love to visit the cinema. For us film goes beyond the story into the world of makeup and special effects.
Ready Player One.
This movie just does not let you down. The makeup and special effects are flawless, making this one of the easiest movies to watch.
Makeup artist Gary Archer was the dental prosthetics designer for this film. he is known for his work on deep impact ( 1998 ) and R.I.P.D ( 2013).
Story – The film is a mix between the real world and the virtual world ( OASIS). In the oasis its all action and adventure, sending us on the quest to find the clues, to complete the treasure hunt. The film shows us just what the world could become like if we continue to use technology. Its only in the virtual world that we can live out our dreams.
The real world looks bleak. People wondering around unaware of the outside world. It’s not to far from our world as we walk around heads down looking at our phones.
The film is based on a 1928 stage play by RC Sherriff and follows a squad of men the trenches of northern France in 1918 and await a German offensive.
Filmmaker Saul Dibb and his production team made use of a number of existing trench sets over the course of the shoot, including a replica set at Trench Farm near Ipswich.
“Two days before we started shooting there was an enormous downpour so the mud you see in the film is just the mud we found on set – we didn’t add to it,” says Dibb.
“The actors didn’t go off to trailers. Everyone stayed on set and by the end of it their feet were frozen, they were covered in mud – it was uncomfortable.

The shape of the water is a fairy tale of love. You don’t just see the love: you feel it.
It radiates out pours from the screen into your laps.
The merman is a dreamy beautiful stunning gift to the cinema screen. The unseen star is Doug Jones hidden underneath layers of carefully crafted latex.
Creature feature makeup at its best.
A poem from the film that I want to share with you.
“Unable to perceive the shape of you, I find you all around me.
Your presence fills my eyes with your love, it humbles my heart, for you are everywhere.”

In the vast world of anime, there are few franchises out there that match Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail.
For those unfamiliar with Fairy Tail, the anime follows an aspiring Celestial wizard named Lucy, who joins forces with Natsu, Ezra, and Grey, three incredibly powerful wizards to better hone her skills. She explores the world that’s filled with magic, mystery and lots of danger.
The long awaited film is released this week and is called Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry.
Follow Team Pixies top Anime makeup tips to get yourself ready for an epic night at the cinema.
1.Change your eye colour with contacts. Large “circle lenses” can achieve a more dramatic effect than makeup, especially if coloured with an unnatural colour. Always get your eyes measured by an optometrist first.
2.Use a dark or bold lipstick to make your lips appear fuller and larger.
3.Add a pink blush cross the blush over the bridge of the nose from cheekbone to cheekbone
4. Pencil on false eyebrows. A thinner, higher arch looks more animated than a natural eyebrow, especially if drawn boldly.
