he name Joe Blasco is rapidly becoming as well-known to the general public as it already is in the make-upindustry. Mr. Blasco is highly respected and world-famous for his work in the development of new and unique techniques for special make-upeffects. He is an innovator of the, “Bladder technique†utilized in films depicting horror/monster transformations showing bulging and bubbling skin effects. He is also recognized as an expert in the realm of cosmetics compounding, high-fashion beauty make-up, and make-upartistry education.

Born in a small suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Joe Blasco began his study of the art of make-upat the early age of seven.

“I was fascinated from the start,†he says, “The minute I saw pictures of Jack Pierce applying the finishing touches to Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein’s Monster’s make-up, I knew that was what I wanted to do.â€

He was awarded a scholarship to cosmetology school, and after graduating in 1964 at the age of 18 he arrived in Hollywood to work for the Max Factor Cosmetics Company as a traveling make-upartist representative. After receiving their training he discovered he was to be sent to Pittsburgh to represent the company in various department stores. Unhappy with the situation, he left the Factor Company with $50 in his pocket to pursue a career in Hollywood as a make-upartist.

He worked six months as a telephone salesperson for the Time-Life Magazine Company, then went to work as a copy dispatcher and advertising trainee for the Los Angeles Times.

During his employment at the Times, he began apprenticing with several make-upartists to perfect .

Served as head make-upartist on numerous television shows and motion pictures all of which dealt with creative make-upranging from beautiful high-fashion to special horror and science fiction creations including: His existing and growing knowledge of the art of make-up. In 1967 he left the Los Angeles Times to take a job as an instructor with a small, obscure society make-upschool in Westwood, California. The school's owner was very impressed with Blasco's talent and permitted him to make major adjustments in the school's curriculum and plans for the future.

Recognizing the need for a course that taught motion picture and television make-upartistry, Blasco created a new curriculum for the school. </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD><TD width=20 height=487>http://www.joeblasco.com/blascoschools/cosmeticsnew/pics/achievements/blank.gif</TD><TD vAlign=top width=374><TABLE cellSpacing=8 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>http://www.joeblasco.com/blascoschools/cosmeticsnew/pics/achievements/joeblasco.jpg

http://www.joeblasco.com/blascoschools/cosmeticsnew/pics/achievements/blank.gifThe school, under Blasco’s direction, became the first to teach full-time courses in professional make-upartistry. Blasco, however, found himself unhappy with restrictions placed on him at the school and soon left to continue pursuing his career in the motion picture and television industries. For three years, while working for various production companies, Blasco also apprenticed with major professional cosmetics manufacturing firms as a Cosmetics Chemist and compounder. As a make-upartist working in film and television, he experienced first hand what made a cosmetic product ideal for use in these mediums.

http://www.joeblasco.com/blascoschools/cosmeticsnew/pics/achievements/blank.gifHis career progressed rapidly and he became well-known for his ability to create and apply any type of Make-up in any situation. Producers came to realize when they called upon Joe Blasco, they could rely on the fact that he could handle any make-upproblem no matter how demanding. Blasco worked at all the major television networks in Hollywood as his reputation for perfection grew. He became personal make-upartist to scores of personalities including Bette Midler, Olivia Newton-John, Lauren Bacall, Carol Burnett, and the late Orson Welles. </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
