A DP or cameraperson's medium is his camera to make films, photographer it's their, nowadays, DSLR camera, to take stills, a writer it's the pen and paper or, for most, their computer or laptop. For a makeup artist it's the human body. The makeup artist is responsible for the look of whatever subject one is trying to film, photograph or conjure up as a character in their story. The makeup artist brings out the personality of each character rather it be in a moving film or still.
