Sfx Mua

One of Virginia’s passions is as an award- winning face and body artist with her Children’s Entertainment company Mabel Moon. Over the last 10 years Virginia has been perfecting her skills and took her Halloween face painting to a new level in 2020 when she was hired on as a Key SFX MUA on the horror film Pray For Me. From bruising that aged, to cuts, gashes, open wounds, frothing mouths and puncture wounds, Virginia can provide a wide range of looks for your next film project as a (non-union) crew member.
