Terms Setting the makeup: a process of keeping the makeup on longer and reducing smudging by sprinkling a small amount of setting powder onto a powder puff, folding the puff in half, and rubbing the powder into the puff, then lightly shaking off the excess powder from the puff and pressing the powder and puff into the makeup. Base color: a makeup color that is used to represent the overall desired color of the character. You may wish to remove the makeup colors from the plastic palette for ease of use. Stippling or patting makeup on: a process where cream makeup is applied using a sponge to apply the makeup with an up and down motion instead of a streaking motion.
Application Instructions 1. Begin with the makeup palette and a white makeup sponge. Apply the blue base color over one half of the face and neck, being careful that you don’t get makeup into the eyes. Set the makeup with colorless powder and a powder puff. 2. Using the clean side of a white makeup sponge or brush, apply the red makeup around the eyes, and draw an exagerated lip line. Blend the red into the blue around the eyes. Set the makeup with powder. 3. Create teeth with white makeup inside the red lips. Outline the teeth with black. 4. With the brush, apply black over the top of the shaded areas in the manner shown, then use the black to create accent lines for more depth. 5. Trace over the black lines using the brush with white makeup; this will give a greater sense of detail. 6. Set the makeup with colorless powder and a powder puff. Remove excess powder with a damp powder brush or damp tissue.
You may want to use a temporary hair spray colorant or a wig for a more completed look.
