Lara Wirth is a self-taught special effects makeup artist who posts her monstrous creations to Instagram. She started following her passion for special effects on her fourteenth birthday, and was inspired to start after falling in love with the FX in Pirates of the Caribbean and X-Men.
To construct her creations, Lara uses body paint, and creates horns, teeth and prosthetics. She makes prosthetics by sculpting on a face cast, then making mould of it and filling with homemade SFX gelatine, before applying to her face to be painted. She aspires to one day create movie characters, and we’re certain we’ll see her name in horror movie credits in the future! Check out more and support her work on Instagram.
