Welcome to Placebo FX Makeup - Horror, gore, and character special effects cinema makeup work, with an underpinning dedication to service.

Placebo FX Makeup is run by and consists solely of myself, Steph Koza.
I've been in the field for nearly six years now, and continue to love every minute of it.
With a specialty in horror and gore, I have done work in everything from aliens to fairies.
I've enjoyed doing custom makeup work for movies ranging from indie to full budget, and ranging from basic wounds to full non-human characters.
I also have a passion for scaring people half to death. As a result, I've been working in haunted houses as an actress since I was about quite young and have more recently been doing makeup for one of the top haunted houses in the state.

Now, I hope you enjoy taking a look through the various pieces of my work that are available in the photo galleries above. This is my passion, and I enjoy allowing people to take a walk through my, admittedly somewhat strange, mind.

I currently reside in a suburb of Los Angeles, CA, and actively commute to sites all over the LA basin and beyond.

Is there a way, with makeup, to enhance a healed scar from an oil burn and make it stand out?

You're a very good make-up artist. :)

Tell me, what do you like to be the most when you put on makeup, and why? :)

Not sure if you're aware of this, but one of your works is being spread under the guise of an actual rubber bullet wound in connection with the riots in Ferguson.

I saw your Knife Fight picture today just surfing randomly and I was like ewww what the hell. I was completely fooled, I stared at it for a while and then I read the comment, I was so mad, it just fake. I felt so stupid. But very good job, after that I checked some of your works, stunning arts. So crazy and so amazing. (Pardon my English)
