Read on to know more about Jalal Moayyerian known as founder of classic makeup in Iranian cinema.

In the world of cinematic artistry, few figures shine as brightly as Jalal Moayyerian, an Iranian makeup artist with a career adorned with accolades and massive contributions to the craft.

Born on September 12, 1941, in Tehran, Moayyerian's journey as a makeup artist started in 1970, following his studies at the Dramatic Art School.

Renowned as the founder of classic makeup in Iranian cinema, Moayyerian's distinctive approach to his craft has garnered widespread acclaim.

His work in films and series such as ‘Death of Yazdgerd’ (1982), ‘Heads on Gallows’ (1984), ‘Kamal-ol-Molk’ (1984), 'Hezar Dastan' (1987), and ‘Lead’ (1987) is considered a revolutionary contribution to the art of makeup in Iranian cinema.

Notably, Moayyerian holds the prestigious distinction of winning the Crystal Simorgh for Best Makeup Artist at the Fajr Film Festival three times – a testament to his skill and innovation.

His influence extends beyond the screen, as he founded the first makeup training institute in Iran, passing on his expertise to aspiring makeup artists.

While Moayyerian is celebrated primarily as a makeup designer, he has also left his mark as an actor in films such as ‘Hot Nescafe’ and ‘The Evil Inside’.

One of his most challenging works, according to him, was the makeup for Imam Khomeini (played by Abdolreza Akbari) in ‘The Morning Son’.
