Zoe Armstrong SFX  Simple self taught special effects makeup for photography and film work 💄💉🔪 #spfx #specialeffects #zoearmstrongsfx

Just made this tonight for the hell of it. Swipe through for more shots. Saw the screening of the emergency services video we made a couple years back today. Gave me a wee boost of what sfx used to be like so I had a crack at skinless forearm. Hope you guys like it :) #sfx #spfx #spfxmua #spfxnz #specialfx #specialeffects #specialfxmakeup #specialeffectsart #blood #gore #skinless #veins #moulage #er #ed #hospital #injury #makeup #silicon #sculptgel #bennye #wax #zoearmstrongsfx

Hi. I feel I need to address something. Over the past year my passion for Special effects makeup has been completely smothered. Between the past media attention and jobs it became work and stress and anxiety. Something that was once a passion and something I found fun has become something tainted with expectations and pressure to keep going or do better. My whole life became sfx makeup when in reality I haven’t even figured out what I want to do with my life yet. Ill be doing my occasional one off jobs still as I do enjoy it in small doses but in regards to the future of this account .. I’m really not sure. I’ll never get rid of it and I know you guys have gotten used to not hearing from me by now. I hope all of you who were inspired by my work or wanted to see me go further with this don’t see this as a betrayal. I loved what I did when I started and I love hearing all your feedback. But I can’t keep bringing myself down trying to keep this dying flame lit anymore. I’m so sorry everyone. I will still share any work I do but from now on it will be a very rare occasion. I hope you can forgive me.

Apologies for the less extravagant works! Just saving some money to get more gear since my kit has lasted me around 3 years now and is scraping the barrel.

Before blood and colouring is added here’s what the basic outline of my wound looked like with homemade scarwax. As always the wound changes shape mid process so unfortunately I ended up with a larger gash and lost some of the detail. All part of the learning process :) #sfx #sfxmakeup #specialfx #specialeffects #specialfxmakeup #spfxmua #spfx #spfxnz #scarwax #homemade #homemadescarwax #wound #process #stepbystep #zoearmstrongsfx

Some more updates on my surgery recover! Managing to walk a bit more now 😁 feeling confident I’ll recover quickly but in the meantime enjoy the references! Also some shots of how weird my leg looks with all the muscle loss and swelling 😨💉 (Also the outline in the last photo is the area of skin I now have nerve damage on and cannot feel anymore.) #zoearmstrongsfx #surgery #kneesurgery #cuts #bruising #bruise #real #notmakeup #reference #sfx #specialfx #specialeffects #specialfxmakeup #specialeffectsart #sfx #spfxnz #spfxmua
