Make up and prosthetics...not a good start

Ok, this is worry some.

Morning today was the make up and prosthetics camera tests but...the mustache applications weren't good. It didn't look realistic for my friend's expertise is more toward theater techniques than for film.

One thing to keep in mind is that theater make up is designed to be appreciated at a far distance for one's features need to be exaggerated to "reach" as far as the last seat in the row in a theater or auditorium, as in film....film needs to be natural and realistic for cameras -while doing close up shots- give away any imperfection....and now specially if I'm shooting in high definition!

So...I'm out of ideas so far. We juggled a few alternatives but I'll keep looking for ways to make it work.

This is extremely important now.
