School doesn’t always suck.
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Today is going to showcase a different kind of makeup… stage makeup! Recently in my drama class at school we took a break from memorizing and projecting our voices across a room, and picked up beauty blenders and cake makeup to create four different looks: corrective, injury, old age, and a character of our choice.
Before I reveal the final products, I just wanted to remind you that I am working on my “Ask the Bean” post series. Basically, if you comment a question (can be about makeup, me, me and makeup…) on the original post or this post, a blog post will be dedicated to your question and a review of your blog. Hopefully that free promo is an incentive!
Let’s get to the unit, shall we?
Take your average contour and highlight- and then multiply it by 10! The goal is to make your face have dimension when bright stage lights are shining on actors during a performance. Sadly, the quality of this picture isn’t the best but I promise I got a 100% on this assignment. 😉
I went for a strangled look in this makeup challenge, and I believe I delivered. The key to the hand on my neck was to sketch out an outline with white eyeliner, and then mark the places where pressure would’ve caused a darker bruise (finger tips and trachea).
If you know me, you know that I am an old soul. That’s why this next look is so dear to me… It brought out my true self!
Look at Grandma Zoe! Ain’t she a cutie? I’m personally not a fan of the forehead wrinkles, and I’m aching to try this again. However, overall it’s a pretty accurate rendition because I look exactly like my great grandmother!
So much blending. So much contour. I think this is a natural, everyday look, dontcha think?
Well, beauty beans, I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my drama class. If you go to the same high school as me, take drama! You get to do this!
There were multitudes of products used, but a majority (foundation, contour, highlight, bruising) of them came from Ben Nye. There are no affiliate links or sponsorships involved in this post.
