Makeup is an essential tool for developing a character. Directors, producers, writers, and actors rely heavily on makeup artists to collaborate in their story making process. Makeup application for a live audience is quite different than for a camera.  Contrast is exaggerated to make features and facial expressions visible for audience members that are sitting far from the stage.
