Stage makeup is very different from other types of makeup. The stage lights can make the faces of the actors look pale and expressionless. Upon closer inspection, stage makeup seems too bright and grotesque, but on the stage, everything looks harmonious and appropriate.
Cosmetics used for stage makeup are not sold in every shop. It has a high density, thickness, and an intense, saturated color. After each use of these cosmetics, your face should be cleaned thoroughly to give your skin some rest.
A bright color palette is used in stage makeup. The choice of colors depends not only on your creative ideas but also on your looks. Remember to pick colors based on your eyes, hair, and skin color.
The application technique is also not too different from your usual makeup, although it is likely to require some creative techniques on your part. Sometimes stage makeup is simply amazing due to its uniqueness. Butterflies, exotic flowers and animals, and even strange patterns are not what they seem when you see them on the face of an actor! If you would like to create your own masterpiece, look at different pictures and watch various videos to inspire you.
Begin with cleansing, and then balance your skin by masking its flaws. It is better if your foundation is slightly darker than your natural skin tone.
Apply some powder, and then you can begin to apply makeup to your eyes and lips. For scenic makeup, emphasis goes on both at once. Everything should be equally eye-catching. Otherwise, you will look like you are wearing a mask, in which only the eyes or lips stand out. It should not be done in every case.
Stage makeup, as well as costume makeup, is of great importance in any theatrical delivery. Without it the impression of what is happening in the scene would be incomplete. Not surprisingly, professional makeup artists are respected in theater circles. Set your imagination free and start creating; with the help of stage makeup your mood and ideas can be passed on to the public.
