Ask a wig maker or makeup artist.
by: Elizabeth Elwell-Cook

Dear Carol,

Thanks for your query. The idea of using false eyelashes is a possibility. Single hairs sounds to me like an awfully hard way to do it... But I am not a makeup artist or a wig maker.

Perhaps you could have a talk to makeup artists, wig makers, or schools and colleges that teach this specialist artform in order to find out? I often receive calls and emails asking costume questions from amateurs, and that's okay! Some schools in your area might even be interested in sending out some volunteer students to help with your film!

Please make sure, if you do this, that they get a good reference for their work experience from you when they are finished. (You'd be surprised how few places do, and it's very disheartening to be told after two weeks working for free that the people you've worked for "Don't do that type of thing". After receiving this treatment from a world class opera company myself, I have made it my policy to always give a reference to students who volunteer their time!).

I hope this helps!
