The makeup industry in Pakistani is showing a boom since the past couple of years. With new artists emerging every year, the industry has given Pakistan a good name worldwide. One part of this industry is known as SFX makeup. An SFX makeup artist transforms their face, hands, and other parts of the body into frightening, injured, supernatural, or mutilated creatures for film, TV, and the stage. It might not sound like tough work but it really is the most difficult thing to do. And to achieve perfection in it is nothing less than an honor.
The latest name to come up in the industry is that of Razan Yasin. She is a 19-year old self-taught SFX artist from Karachi. She learned all her skills by watching YouTube videos and nothing else. Her work has left many people in awe. There is no doubt that the girl is truly talented. In an interview, Razan said she started her art back in 2017 when the blue whale game was the center of discussion. She says, ‘’I used to watch American Sci-Fi TV shows like ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’. These shows had a lot of action and theatrics, and the actors were often seen sporting an ‘almost real’ looking wound or injury’.”
She was so intrigued by the awesome makeup that she immediately started looking for ideas on the internet. In the beginning her work was not as good as she wanted it to be but she soon realized that art takes practice. She will surely go a long way!
