  10. 10. Be Creative!<br />Stage makeup is NOT regular, everyday makeup<br />Do NOT be afraid to try something out.<br />Think OUTSIDE the box<br />
  11. 11. Who Are You?<br />Is the character quirky? Quiet? Bold? A tomboy? Girly? Masculine? Artsy? Tortured emotionally?<br />Before any makeup can even come close to being applied, you MUST figure out how the character would and should wear make up.<br />

  14. 14. Applying Stage Makeup<br />Start with a foundation that is right for your skin tone<br />Make sure to layer, but BLEND<br />Powder<br />
  15. 15. Non human makeup<br />Special makeup (think Halloween type pastes)<br />Start with a foundation (this could be the colored paste, or a cream. There are many different forms.)<br />Set with a neutral powder<br />Don’t forget prosthetics that humans don’t have (animal ears, whiskers, gills, ect.)<br />Air brushing may be used when necessary/appropriate.<br />
  16. 16. Basic eye Strategies for human characters<br />Lid to brow with a light color<br />Outside half with a medium shad.<br />Sideway V on outside of lid (darkest shade)<br />Line eyes with liner <br />Mascara<br />These are the basics BUT<br />
  17. 17. Feel Free to SPICE things UP!<br />Not all characters are the same, but here are some ideas to think about.<br />Foggy contacts (if in budget) are a great idea for sight impaired characters. <br />Droop eyeliner down for sad, distressed, or old-aged eyes. <br />Add fake eyelashes, bushy eyebrows, or anything else you can think of!<br />
  18. 18. Gore<br />Once again, prosthetics are used<br />Skin glue and blending are key<br />Keep in mind the accident that takes place in the performance<br />It may be necessary to work alongside the costuming department for missing limbs or other illusions. <br />
  19. 19. HAVE FUN!!!! <br />As with anything, the energy you put in, is the amount you will get out. You’re audience will love you!<br />
