Easter Production Make Up

Every once in a while, I will lend my make up services to Easter and Christmas Productions.
As I prepare to go to the New York Make Up Show for the first time, I am really excited to be able to build my portfolio to be able to receive professional benefits.
My love for make up probably started when I was a high school student – studying visual arts in high school and even started at Howard as a Fashion Merchandising major, and while putting together several looks for runway lines that I designed at a Fashion School in Chicago.
If you can blend colors on paper, you can blend color on faces.
I feel that as long as you know the color wheel, you will know how to do great make up.
One of my desires is to eventually teach a make up class – to teach people just as I have learned.
The production thats coming up starting thursday is an Easter Production called King of Kings.
Its being held at my husbands church where the stage is huge!
Its in a space that holds about 2,500 people.
In any performance, with a stage that huge, the make up must be exaggerated in order to see from the seats that could be as far away as 100 feet or more.
Here are a few looks that I did during tech week:
The first was playing with highlighting and contouring of the face using Ben Nye Banana Powder and Ebony Powder and the new NW58 from MAC! (you didnt know they added an even darker foundation to the line did you?!) , bright colored eye (two toned gold eyeshadow with blue in the corners which blended into green in the crease – all Ben Nye pigment products) and Cotton Candy Lipstick made by Motives.
The next look is for a group we call “special dancers” : the look here is extreme highlight and contouring with bronze NYX pigment on the lid, Mac Expresso int he crease, Motives for LaLa Lipstick in Times Square. To this look we will add glittered masks that will be hand applied to the eyes and netting around the nose and mouth. All she needs now is her false lashes and her liner.

I can’t wait until the night of the show where I can show you how it all comes together.
