Theater's Natural Beauty

The base make-up on all the Vontrap children was applied the same way.  I had to remember that although this is theatre make-up, the end product still needs to look angelic to the audiences eye. (They are supposed to be children after all.) Using a technique I learnt from the 'You Tube' vloging sensation 'Goss Makeup Artist'  I was able to create this look. I urge you all to watch this as it was actually meant for day to day wear. However I adapted it for the theatre by using darker/brighter colours and heavier, deeper foundation.


After applying the base, I added extra highlighter and blush to add a dewy, youthful effect to Liesl's skin.



To create a naturally larger eye I used the Benefits 'Big Beautiful Eyes' contour kit, retailing at £24.50.
This allowed me to contour an incredibly natural smokey eye that would widen the eye and emphasize the lash line.


Never forget forget when doing theatre make-up to darken up areas like brows, lash lines and outline lips so they are visible to an audience sitting far away.
