for today's tip i am going to explain how to achieve the old lady/man face. this is a great makeup technique that can be used for many different costumes, and most of the makeup used is stuff you may already own.
step #1: apply your foundation makeup all over face and neck.
step #2: scrunch up your face to find your "natural" wrinkles. apply makeup that is a shade lighter than your nautral skin tone.
step #3: quit scrunching your face and fill in the creases left with a light brown eyeliner/eyebrow pencil. make sure to add emphasis to your crows feet, and the creases around your nose.
step #4: make your cheeks look even more sunken by darkening the hollows with a contour shade (a grey/brown color). use this same shade to darken alone your jaw line.
step #4: use your pencil liner to add liver spots and broken capillaries.
step #5: blend blend blend. pull out that large blending brush and give everything a good blend.
when you are finished apply baby powder to set the makeup. this can also give your skin a "dry" look (which is good). if you don't have a grey hair wig, use the baby powder in your hair. this is usually quite effective and not that difficult to wash out. take your look a step furthur by applying makeup/liver spots to the backs of your hands.
ps. if there is a costume look you would like some tips on, please let me know!
