Movie Magic at IMATS 2011 New York City

I took a good look around the movie and television makeup display at the International Makeup Artists Trade Show (IMATS) in NYC this past weekend and I realized how much the entertainment industry relies on talented makeup artists.  I'm not just talking about making singers or tv hosts look beautiful, but monsters and corpses as well.  Everything from dinosaurs to zombies to a replica of Eddie Murphy were on display proving that CGI is far from taking over the industry.  The exhibit also provide to me that a well crafted decomposing skull only looks as convincing as the makeup effects that are applied to it.
