Stunning Photos from Dick Smith’s Do-It-Yourself Monster Make-Up Handbook Published in 1965


“I wrote this book originally in 1965 to show young people how to have fun doing simple monster make-ups. It was published as a 60s magazine and was sold for many years as a back issue.

I’ve been a professional makeup artist now for forty years but I still remember the thrill I had making myself up as monsters when I was a teen-ager. What I wanted to do with this book was to provide young amateurs with the information they need to understand and enjoy this art. The book begins with very simple make-ups and ends with some complicated ones. All are explained and illustrated in detail and most of the monsters are ones which I invented for this book.

The various make-ups are designed to illustrate the greatest variety of methods and materials. The knowledge you gain from each will enable you to create many make-ups of your own. All of the examples are monsters because they are the most popular, but many of the techniques may be used for character make-ups as well. I’ve brought the text completely up to date in materials and techniques. I hope that this revised edition will introduce many more to the magic of make-up,” – Dick Smith.
