If you have to go on stage and public speaking is one of your major fears, imagine how bad it is for your self having to speak in public and having a bad makeup. While a makeup artist can not help you combat stage fright, maybe I can fix a bad makeup and even offer some suggestions to fix your hair .
Applying stage makeup like a pro
First, you need to know your products and your tools. A product or a tool incorrectly can ruin an entire production. The incorrect base can make the face look flat and expressionless. A wrong lip color can make the lips are too flashy, dismissively to the rest of the makeup. It is advisable to have a limited presence. The opposite of a face without expression is an exaggeration. Using the wrong tools can make the lines appear drawn or even a clown can look sloppy or stained.
The makeup is unrealistic and false. To succeed you need a balance between the visual and reality. Remember those seated further back in an audience need to see your facial features and expressions as those sitting in the front. Personally I like to use a cream base, one or two shades darker than is generally used for more coverage and visibility, translucent powder to set makeup, eye shadow with a high pigment lipstick with a color that complements skin tone, eye liner and mascara black or dark brown spots and illuminating hidden. It may be best placed false eyelashes to add a little more emphasis to the eyes.
When working with these products, you better have the following tools available to apply makeup: the base sponge, powder puff Velour, natural hair brush, lip brush, wand and eyelash curler.
Tips for Makeup Application Scenic
- Stage makeup always begins with a clean face. The makeup application will last longer and be easier if the face is free of dirt and oil. I also recommend a tonic to balance the ph of the skin.
- Once the face is clean, it’s time to apply the lashes. The tabs will adhere better if you do not put moisturizer in that area.
- Apply moisturizer. The lights and heavy makeup can have a drying effect on skin. The moisturizer will help nourish the skin.
- Meet the lighting, the shape and characteristics of your skin. This will be useful to apply stains and concealer hides. Apply hidden spots a lighter shade to hide the dark circles that form under the eyes. Mix well so that the lines are not visible. Apply the concealer just under the cheekbones to give depth to the face. Again, know the shape of your face and distribute the makeup, but the lines look great cracks from the stage.
- If you use a cream based on good coverage. It is very easy to use with a sponge and can be distributed easily. If you think the base is too heavy, you can moisten the sponge to smooth the process. Apply a generous amount of translucent powder, concentrated under the eyes. This will help clean up the loose dust shadows and also determine the makeup prevent shine
- You should apply a lipstick in a color that complements your skin tone. The lips also need to be seen from the audience, so that the face does not look flat.
7. Apply eye makeup, remembering that the audience will see at various distances. The lines should be neat and should be well distributed. If you apply too much black eyeliner above and below the makeup may seem too strong. Therefore, if you use a thick line and prominent above, apply a thin line at the bottom. You can even try using a brown on the bottom and black on the top. Curl the lashes to the eyes appear more open. Apply mascara, one at a time layer, let dry and apply a second coat to give thickness and length.
- Removes any loose powder. Clean areas look untidy
- Apply lipstick with a brush for more neatly. If you use a lip liner, choose one that matches the lipstick so that they are clean and neat. A thick line can call attention to the place where you want to attract attention. The gloss adds dimension, but be careful not to overload.
Hairstyle for Scenario
When taking the stage, the hair needs to complement the makeup and vice versa. It is advisable to contact a hair stylist to achieve the best suited to the stage. If the event to be held on the stage lasts for a certain period of time, it is important that the hair is perfect during that period. The style should be realistic, whether it is a ballet, a talent or beauty or performance. Again, if the hair is too unreal or compete with makeup, distract the attention of the show. If in doubt, use a simple hair without hair on the face. This will be a distraction so.
Stage fright comes and goes. The work of a makeup last forever. Do your work and enjoy the show.
