Life & Work with Cieaira Moore

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cieaira Moore.

Hi Cieaira, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
When I was in high school I always enjoyed drawing and painting face-off was my favorite show in high school and that’s what inspired me to start special effects makeup being from a small city. (Kansas City) It was viewed as being weird because it’s not a common hobby so I began to teach myself by sitting in my room in my free time painting illusions & using toilet paper, latex and fake blood to make small cuts that could take up to 8 hours.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road Not having anyone to teach me the correct way so I could begin doing makeup for tv/film was kinda frustrating also being young at the time special effects school was so expensive.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a special effects makeup artist from Kansas City Mo. Being a Special Effects Artists our job is to recreate human life in the best realistic way we can. I am most proud of my accomplishments as a SFX Artist I did my first film back in 2019 which was played at AMC for KCfilm fest I am also graduating this year as a certified SFX artist from Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles California! What sets me apart from others is I am not the average makeup artist I enjoy horror, creating monsters, etc.
