Master Esthetician at play

The Master Esthetician students at my school put on a presentation about fantasy make-up the other day.

I went to it, just for fun.

I learned a lot!

For instance: You can use false eyelash adhesives to attach boa feathers to the face. Or just about any thing else that is very light weight.

You can stretch fishnet or lace over skin then brush color on (or airbrush if you have such a tool) with the results looking like fish scales or rash. Using iridescent colors over a base color is a great way to make a fish scale look shine.

This was how the pattern on her cheek was made.

A skin putty can be used to create forms....
Which can then be made to look like a really awful cut with some fake blood.
(What boy wouldn't want to know how to do this to scare his friends and mother?)
Doesn't she look adorable?
A credit card was used as a pattern for the playing card.
Feathers were used to make the dramatic eye lashes.
The student shared that it would have been better to put the black and red on, then use white around them.
I have to admire their creativity!
(And after watching them use an air brush to apply make-up, I now really want an make up airbrush of my own. So cool!)
Wish I had a kid at home.
The make-up fun sessions could really get wild now!

What a fun workplace you have!

I'm sure you will make use of a few of those tips sometime...maybe even Sunday.

Very interesting...I'd hate to wear any of that on my face because it begins to itch and scratch...I'm miserable in short order, but they sure are cute. Well that gash is gruesome for sure.

Well now, that's different! Other than Mardi Gras or a masquerade ball, I'm not sure where you'd wear these festive faces. Oh, yeah, how could I forget Halloween. It looks like a lot of fun!

I love the fish scale and the wound cut effects. Thanks for sharing as we learned how to deal with make ups when putting effects on our skin.
