Makeup Tips For The Theater

Prior to applying stage makeup to skin, be sure to take note of any potential physical reaction. If your face is sensitive, check ingredients that may cause damage to pores. Less is more, so make it subtle. A successful job using kits will appear realistic without looking like layers of fake material.  Basic steps for assembling theatrical makeup kits on your face include foundation, contour, blush, eyeliner and lipstick. Make a habit of powdering, which prevents the material from melting. Those stage lights can heat you up quickly.

Makeup history

The modification of an actor's appearance has been a large part of stage performance for centuries. But with the arrival of film, some changes were required for theatrical makeup kits . In the early 20th century, makeup specifically designed for movies was created. The first substance available was a light greasepaint that worked well with the lighting. Following tests and experiments, a new set of color termed panchromatic was developed. This innovation is credited to Max Factor, who received an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Award.

Organizing Makeup Accessories

Mason jars are being used for everything these days. There are definitely makeup application accessories for placement in these jars. Brushes in particular make perfect sense when organizing this often used tool. Just so they don’t become a mess, fill the jar about halfway with beads or similar sized objects. Or forget the containers and holders entirely and attach the makeup to a wall with magnets. Re-purposing cups, baskets or jewelry boxes are other popular choices. There are so many possibilities you can find with theatrical makeup kits. Choose one and add your own unique decorations.
